From his trek to the South Pole with Walking with the Wounded to his launch of the Invictus Games, Prince Harry is expanding his do-gooding resume with the audition of a new army role. 

According to reports, the 30-year-old royal will help secure the best care possible for injured servicemen and women. He will work with a personal recovery unite to ensure that every wounded soldier has the right to a recovery plan for their future, whether that be in the military or another form of employment. 

Harry, or Captain Wales as he’s called in the military, is currently in London, hard at work on his latest venture, which, according to People, is an extension of his launching of the Invictus Games, a Paralympic-style competition for injured servicemen and women.

“It is a natural progression, following on from the Games,” a source at Kensington Palace office told People. “This is something he is both committed to and is passionate about in both his army job and his public royal role.” 

Harry was previously praised for bringing the Invictus Games to life in September, and upon announcing the competition in March, the red-headed royal opened up about why the cause is so close to his heart. 

“Why do we need to do it?” Harry asked. “Well, to demonstrate the power of sports, to inspire recovery, support rehabilitation and to demonstrate life beyond disability, and it really is as simple as that.”

“I have witnessed first-hand how the power of sport can positively impact the lives of wounded, injured and sick servicemen and women in their journey of recovery,” he added. 

Prinz William‘s little brother’s new position also comes just one year after he transferred from being an Army helicopter pilot to an army staff officer position in London, and he later admitted that the Invictus Game prep became his “full-time job.”

Luckily, the next Invictus Games isn’t expected to happen until 2016, so it looks like Harry will have plenty of time to sink his teeth into his latest project!
