The Queen's ripped great-nephew is set to become the first-ever royal to join the Commandos – after using Balmoral as a training ground.
Arthur Chatto, 22, told Her Majesty last week he had been accepted to train as an officer in the Royal Marines.
The model and personal trainer reportedly took training tips from Prince Edward – who dropped off the course in 1987 after completing a third of the 12-month training.
Arthur, the son of Princess Margaret's only daughter Lady Sarah, 57, has been named the 'sexiest royal'.
The muscly young lad posed for multiple topless photos on his now-deleted Instagram page which garnered him thousands of fans.
As well as working as a personal trainer in a gym, Arthur was also part of the youngest team to row around the UK, The Sun reports.
And while visiting the Queen and family at Balmoral this month, the determined royal participated in 20-mile hikes and even went camping in the Scottish Highlands.
Arthur – who is 29th in line to the throne – will become the first member of the royal family to join the Marines if he passes the 32-week course.
