At RMA Sandhurst Prince Harry learned to carry out orders, no matter how absurd they might seem and to go on exhausting long training marches, with 60 pounds of fatigues on his back. He learned what it takes to survive on the battlefield so that one could become victorious. And above all, he learned to put a little love in everything he does. To base your love on the deeds you make for the benefit of your people. To behave like a man and to give your love to the people.
The personality of the Prince, seen from the outside, should be completed by the imagined construction of his inner personality, which the book “The Cadet Life of Prince Harry” is attempting to do. The two perspectives are complementary. His smile, his friendly voice, and the brightness of his eyes can be very helpful in this respect.
As for Harry, this period full of physical and intellectual effort at RMA Sandhurst made him understand the value of life as a cadet, the richness of the passing moment, the significance of every transitory minute. These months of military life and military knowledge have proved to be enough for a lifetime.
Therefore, Prince Harry is an extraordinary being. He is, at the same time, unitary and multilateral, linear and very often unpredictable. Concurrently answering the calls of his inner needs and of the outside world, he blends love for himself with sacrifice.
The man Harry wants to know, wants to know himself, always restless, never content. He lives inside himself, but also for spreading outside. He wants to discover his calling and wants to accomplish it at planetary level. What defines him is particularly the inner power through which he can raise above the material world. It is the leap towards freedom and fantasy. It is the change, escape from the arbitrary and the monotonous, from a dull existence, controlled by imposed limitations.
It is the call of adventure, that is the ability to advance beyond individual limits. It is the sacrifice of the own being, in order to achieve a dream. For him, human value means escape from constraints, love and sacrifice. This is a total paradox: his destiny buried in his inner being also includes the chance of his own transformation.
From now on , his human destiny will appear in a new light. In this destiny we see the unique way in which a man surrenders to the things around him, but also his dissolution into the endless forms of possibility. His ability to stop in time to change the world. We know the secret vibration of life that a man can perceive in the moment of revelation when he meets himself. This is the destiny of a member of the British Royal Family : Prince Harry!
The Cadet Life of Prince Harry (published by AuthorHouse), presents an intriguing light on the 44 weeks Prince Harry trained at RMA Sandhurst. The purpose of this book is to provide an overview of Prince Harry’s adventures as a cadet, but It also presents the normal actions that will follow after graduation.
Prince Harry’s admittance to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst has changed the rhythm of his life. The Prince, who had previously lived his own life, now has access to the universe and to spiritual life. Before Sandhurst he lived in isolation. Now he has a multiple existence. He used to live separated from the others, now he identifies himself with the others. His life used to be monotonous, now he experiences diversity of war.
We look at him and understand how much color and intensity exists in his present military life! Being part of an orderly life in Afghanistan, alongside his friends and colleagues! The hours of military training, the ones spent in the overseas battlefield make him have access to a polyphonic life, simultaneously embracing various levels of reality that the expansion of his spirit allows.
The pleasure of taking part in the interesting actions! It’s like watching an exciting movie, when you identify with its heroes and you experience their feelings, their joys and sorrows. It’s all a matter of the flight of the mind, of creating subjective undertones, of protracting the events to give them density and relief. In this way, time goes faster.
Prince Harry feels he has been here since the beginning of time. The strict garrison schedule has become his second nature. The military uniform is his most natural dress. He accepts all those who surround him as part of his life. Among them he feels at ease, safe and peaceful. Even the enemy is a little friendly. They are all part of a big family: The family of the soldiers fighting overseas!
After ten or fifteen years, memories start to lose their substance. And he will ask himself: “Did I really go through it? Was I really there?” And he will see himself mixed in those events he would definitely doubt it. Here he is now, facing pale, blurred memories of his own life before coming in the battlefield of Afghanistan. Without apparently heeding the way in which he is perceived by the world, he continues his journey through life, heading for the final target which destiny has in store for him. And we transmit him our thoughts and sympathy!
Now all of us understand: Prince Harry was born to be a brave warrior!
“The Cadet Life of Prince Harry” is an extraordinary story of effort, adjustment, courage and love that underscores the transformative power of military education. By reading it, you understand the happiness of trying to become immortal through what you do. At the end you will realize that the cadet life is a manly road full of hardships, of physical and intellectual efforts, that form you as a man.
There is one chance out of a hundred to get into RMA Sandhurst. Your road has led you here. You are going to learn the job of handling the weapons. You are going to dress the military uniform and you are going to do what you have to do. In fact, that’s what others expect of you! It is time we advanced on in our military career! Become officer cadets and so on.
Every day of a royal cadet is a different one. I know that usually, a cadet is not afraid of facing life. A cadet is anxious to prove himself. The excitement, the dangers, the difficulties of ling marches, carrying tens of pounds of equipment on his back, the problems of a complex life of a man does not intimidate a cadet. But, after ten hours of effort, a tired, but satisfied cadet, is eager to face the new obstacles life at RMA Sandhurst implies.
The purpose of drills is not related to cultivating his intelligence, but rather to cultivating his spirit. Spirit is sometimes mistaken for the conservation instinct. But they, the ones who are now in Sandhurst, know for sure that a day is going to come that each piece of knowledge, each skill they learned will produce results. This is in fact the goal of this period in the life of a junior cadet. His step becomes steadier, his look is firmer!
Then after a long period of drills, another one arrives: the classes. The classes, lectures in the theory of tactics, with evaluations at the end of each week enable you to acquire knowledge. Actually small steps in a cadet’s own transformation. They do not mean defeat if they are not perfectly prepared for an exam. But that is not a reason for self inflation either, they hope to one day impresses their instructors with their excellent answers.
A royal cadet compares the classes with a kind of ceremony. Each class has a special significance, and the way in which the participants manifest themselves has something of a ceremony. After each break, the cadets head for the lecture theaters. Some of them talk loudly, others silently check their papers and pens. When the instructor gets in, they stand up at the order. Then the instructor invites them to be seated. He usually starts with a joke or at least a remark that makes them smile.
And as the days go by, the courses become more and more interesting. There are also days in which the courses are followed by drills, and after many hours at the desk, action is welcome. Class by class, the amount of knowledge gets bigger and bigger and the cadets become easier to handle.
You can imagine Prince Harry among the royal cadets. He is hard-working. He tries to assimilate all the knowledge in his teachers’ lectures. He no longer feels insecure, he no longer spends his days in daydreaming. His feelings start to unfold. He becomes more friendly with his colleagues, and more confident. Time is beginning to shape the real character which inhabits the being of Prince Harry. A character towards who he goes with open arms. Every moment of self-discovery gives him a feeling of accomplishment.
