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.

Saturday, 22 March 2014

 Prince Harry has spent the past year flying high in a helicopter but now that he has taken on a desk job in London, he has swapped the skies for speed and taken delivery of a gunmetal grey Audi 5S5. His first outing with the new car was with friends.

Last Thursday night (21/3) he was seen by the Daily Mail playing football at a pitch in Battersea Park  on the south bank of the River Thames opposite Chelsea

Princes William and Harry made an unannounced visit to a flood-hit village in Berkshire, to help colleagues from the Armed Forces shore up flood defences, volunteering from 6AM alongside the Household Cavalry on Friday morning in Datchet, Berkshire.

 Kensington Palace said: "The Princes wanted to do their bit to help in a private capacity.
"The most appropriate way was through the Armed Forces relief effort."

 Video of the brothers shows them laughing with soldiers as they unload bags from an Army lorry.

Prince Harry on the Antarctic Print E-mail

Prince Harry pays  tribute to the "unbelievable achievement" of his Walking With The Wounded teammates who completed the South Pole and appealed for help in getting them back in to employment.

Harry said: "If anybody out there has the ability or resources to give these guys and girls a stepping stone back into employment then please do. You certainly won't regret it."

The three teams were initially competing to get to the Pole first, but when the Antarctic weather made conditions worse than expected they joined forces to make sure they all got to their goal safely.

Prince Harry reached the South Pole Print E-mail

Prince Harry has reached the South Pole after a three-week charity trek with injured military veterans from Britain, the United States, Canada and Australia.

The Prince and 12 soldiers reached the globe's most southerly point on Friday following a 320 kilometre journey across the frozen wastes of Antarctica, organisers said.

The expedition was initially conceived as a race but it was abandoned due to concerns about the safety of the participants, some of whom lost limbs fighting in Afghanistan and Iraq.

However, the teams decided to continue their trek, dragging 70-kilogram sleds through the bitter cold and high winds.




...the wind dropped down ....

 

 

Prince Harry, 29, who serves as an army helicopter pilot, joked earlier this week about the expected arrival date of Friday 13, which he said was "unlucky for some, lucky for us", according to a report by Agence France Presse.

"The wind has dropped down, which is nice. I think everyone is feeling a bit tired but slowly getting into the rhythm," he said.

"Only just got into the rhythm now and it has almost finished."

The veterans have endured temperatures as low as minus 35 degrees Celsius and wind speeds of around 80 kilometres per hour.
