The Queen’s 22-year-old grandnephew is set to become the first royal to join the Royal Marines.
Arthur Chatto attended Prince Harry’s 2018 wedding and is 29th in line to the throne.
Prior to him being accepted to train as a Royal Marine, Chatto also worked as a personal trainer.
Arthur Chatto, the 22-year-old grandson of Princess Margret, the Queen’s late sister, is set to become the first member of the royal family to join the Royal Marines after it was announced he’d been accepted into the training program, the Evening Standard reported on Thursday.
Prince Edward, the youngest of the Queen’s four children, also trained for a position in the marines but, according to the New York Times, dropped out in 1987 at the age of 22 four months into the program.
Following his reported acceptance, Chatto, who is 29th in line for the throne behind his cousins Prince William and Prince Harry according to the Evening Standard, will be preparing for an intense 32-week Royal Marine training, which culminates in four grueling tests.
