Royal Military Academy Sandhurst

008I would like to congratulate all of the graduating cadets from Britain’s Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst. As these newly commissioned lieutenants step into their roles and take command of formations in the British Army they are continuing a proud tradition.

I would especially like to congratulate the three “Royal Cadets” who graduated: Crown Prince Hussein of Jordan, Prince Sebastien of Luxembourg, and Prince Wenzel of Liechtenstein. Far too often in this day and age people of wealthy or historical families simply choose to reject the idea of military service as somehow beneath them or simply not of any interest, and this is very sad. What better way to learn to lead your nation than by serving and leading in it’s military? I have heard it said that nobility is defined by one’s responsibilities, not by one’s privileges, and I could not agree more. Congratulations once again to these graduating Royal Cadets, because far too often those of the nobility forget what it truly means to be noble.
