For today's post we celebrate with the Royal Family of Swann. His Royal Highness the Hereditary Duke of Swann, Prince Dillon, graduated from his two years in the Duke's Air Force Academy yesterday and received his "wings". It is tradition for members of the Princely House of Swann to serve in the military as soon as they have come of age. Prince Dillon was no exception. Even though the young Prince insisted on being treated like any other soldier, he did however have special concession for his personal security as the heir to the throne. As the Duke of Swann's cousin and only first born son within the Royal House, he is heir to the throne of Swann. Prince Dillon graduated from training with "exemplary conduct" and with the rank of staff sergeant. The ceremony was attended by the Duke of Swann himself who also handed out the highest awards to the now ex-cadets. Princess Marie-Elizabeth was also present wearing the Swann Family Tiara.

To commemorate the event a special photograph was taken at the turning out parade that will also serve as Prince Dillon's first official State Portrait as heir to the throne. This is done in light of the fact that the Duke of Swann has indicated that marriage and the producing of a direct line heir was not on the cards indefinitely. This means that Prince Dillon will now begin serving officially as a member of the Princely House and may represent the country on relevant state occasions. We look forward on seeing him on the red carpet and to an eventual future as a married man and Duke of Swann.
