Prince Josef completes Sandhurst

Prince Josef of Liechtenstein has completed his training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. He "passed out" (this does not imply he fainted) on 11 December 2009 at the Sovereign's Parade. He also took part in the Commandants Parade 2 days earlier.

According to the Times his commission will be in Liechtenstein's armed forces which is odd considering that Liechtenstein does not maintain any armed forces. The times also erroneously styled him as His Royal Highness. Let's not allow the sloppy work of the times to distract from his achievement. Completing Sandhurst is no easy task.

Prince Josef is the second grandson of Grand Duke Jean to complete the training regimen at Sandhurst. Guillaume also completed Sandhurst. Felix, unfortunately, sustained a serious ski injury that prevented him from completing the program despite being among the best cadets in his class.

Prince Josef is the exceptionally attractive son of Prince Nikolaus of Liechtenstein and Princess Margaretha of Luxembourg.
