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.

Prince Harry today chatted to armed forces comrades about "nightmares" remembering how to use all his kit when on tour in Afghanistan, according to this report from Briish Forces News 13 February, 2012.

The 27-year-old Captain with the Army Air Corps also spoke to servicemen and women about the fast food joints in Camp Bastion.

Corporal Robert Owen talked to the Prince about communications equipment the royal used on his 10-week tour in the country as a forward air controller in 2007-08.

Harry was familiar with the Bowman Radio System from when he directed jets dropping bombs on Taliban positions in Helmand province.

Cpl Owen, 29, from Shropshire said: "He was saying, because there's a lot of kit nowadays, you've got to remember so much.

"He said it was bringing back nightmares about all the stuff you have got to remember."

Harry, who was appointed Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington in October 2008, arrived at the snow-blanketed base wearing his sky blue Army Air Corps beret.
