Prince Harry
Prince Harry

Prince Harry (His Royal Highness Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales) is the younger son of Charles, Prince of Wales and the late Diana, Princess of Wales, and grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. He was born 15 September 1984 and is third in the line of succession to the thrones of 16 Realms including Australia Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.

His mother died in 1997. Prince Harry, then 13 walked  with his brother, father and grandfather  behind the funeral cortège from Kensington Palace to Westminster Abbey .
After schools and a gap year in Australia and Lesotho, where he worked with orphaned children and produced the documentary film The Forgotten Kingdom, Prince Harry, enlisted in the Army . He was commissioned as a second lieutenant into the Blues and Royals of the Household Cavalry Regiment.

The British Ministry of Defence and Clarence House made a joint announcement on 22 February 2007 that Prince Harry would be deployed with his regiment to the front line in Iraq  and served for 77 days on the front line in the Afghan War.  

To protect his unit from excessive attention by the enemy, the Department of Defence withdrew him after his presence was revealed by an Australian magazine.
 He is to be best man at his older brother Prince William's  wedding to Kate Middleton to Kate Middleton on 29 April 2011.

In October 2008, to pass the tests to fly military helicopters and was presented with his wings by his father on 7 May 2010.

Having since passed his Apache flying test, it is reported that he may return to Afghanistan.



...sense of duty permeates...


Washington Post correspondent, Marie Cocco wrote in the ContraCostaTimes on 1 March 2007, under this telling headline: “U.S. upper class more stuck up than Britain's royalty, ” that that it takes no nostalgia for the Crown to hear the honour in Prince Harry’s vow -- and to wince at the contrast with the US much larger force in Iraq, from which, she declares, the sons and daughters of the American well-heeled and the well-known are largely absent. 

She says this sense of duty in the Royal Family is no new thing.  Older generations remember it in the Second World War, when The King and The Queen, as well as the Royal Family, stayed with the people.  Prince Harry’s grandfather and his father saw distinguished service.  More recently, in the Falklands war, Prince Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, also rode, or perhaps more correctly, flew into battle.

Prince Harry encapsulates a long standard in our Royal Family, a sense of service. This is complemented by a strong sense of charity, of helping those less fortunate than he.
 
 

 



Warrior Prince to serve with Australian Army Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Thursday, 25 April 2013

The defence department  has begun planning for  Prince Harry – known more and more as the Warrior Prince - to spend six months on secondment with the Australian Army. Royal aides and security officials are now assessing the risks of such a deployment, according to an exclusive report leading the ANZAC 2013 issue of The Australian.

The report, by  Jacquelin Magnay and Brendan Nicholson is headlined “Prince Harry's tour of duty, for Queen and a country down under”

They reveal that The  Australian has learned that Prince Harry, a captain in the Household Cavalry Regiment, has said he is keen to serve alongside Australian soldiers.

Behind the scenes, top-level talks between his residence Clarence House in London, the British Army and Australian officials are continuing about where and when the deployment would occur and whether the third in line to the throne would serve on the frontline. He could be formally embedded with an Australian army unit or make an extended visit as an observer.

Although the Australian Defence Force does not fly Apache helicopters, which Prince Harry has flown on deployment in Afghanistan, the army is introducing Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopters which perform a similar role.




...Captain 'Digger' Wales...



 
The Australian, which has softened but not completely resiled from its image in the 1999 campaign as the republican standard bearer – a role now taken by the  Fairfax press – predicts that the emergence  of  a “Captain ‘Digger’ Wales, as Prince Harry would be known, would cement the upsurge in popularity of the royal family in this country.”

“Prince Harry's girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, whom he romanced with long letters and emails from his 20-week stint in Afghanistan last year,”  Jacquelin Magnay and Brendan Nicholson write, ” is a big fan of Australia, having spent time working as an au pair in Sydney several years ago. His father, the Prince of Wales has also often spoken glowingly about his time as a teenager in Australia, at Timbertop school in Victoria.”
