After several weeks of rigid military training, the Prince of Brunei, Pengiran Muda Abdul Mateen, is finally back – better and stronger than ever!
For the uninitiated, the son of the Sultan of Brunei, Haji Hassanal Bolkiah, had successfully completed the All Arms Commando Course (AACC) in the United Kingdom on 2nd December (Thursday).
It’s also worth mentioning that the Crown Prince had successfully completed his 13-week course. He was awarded the Green Beret during the graduation ceremony held at the Royal Marines Commando Training Center (CTCRM), Lympstone, Devon, United Kingdom. For those wondering, he began his training on 20th September, up until 2nd December.
Following the completion of the ceremony, Prince Mateen commented that the AACC course was a very challenging course, both physically and mentally. That being said, the 30-year-old stated that the opportunity to represent his home country of Brunei was one of the major factors that motivated him to survive and complete the course.
Prince Mateen also took to his Instagram, @tmski, to share some photos taken during the graduation ceremony with his 2.3 million followers online. He accompanied his post with a simple caption that reads, “Green beret presentation.” Check it out:
Congratulations and welcome back, Prince Mateen!
