William's Kensington Palace office said on Thursday that the second in line to the British throne completed his final shift earlier this week.

It said he would now focus on royal duties and was "considering a number of options for public service."

William has spent more than seven years in the military, first in the army and then as a Royal Air Force pilot, stationed in north Wales.

In July his wife Kate gave birth to the couple's first child, Prince George.
