That's a lot of big talk! Bah.

Some people never grow up.

Big mouth, no brains. Sounds like he wants to punch an Apache in the nose. Good luck with that.

MP slags if RF and Harry

Sorry, couldn't find this, please move as necessary.

A labour MP has slated the royals, Harry in particular, stating that, among other things, Harry can't fly a helicopter, but 'just sits there going vroom vroom,' William and Harry are both thick, and it's an outrage that William and Kate spent £150 on Prince George's school uniform jumper. Ms Coad has received death threats after these remarks and been told not to leave home alone. She is a member of a campaign group for a republic.

The woman is just being nasty. Maybe Harry did fail his pilot exam, I don't know, I did get the impression from documentaries that he operates the gun while someone else pilots, but it must take a lot of skill to hit anything from so high up, he is a qualified officer at the rank of captain, did two stints in Afghanistan, William definitely is a qualified helicopter pilot, and has a degree, and lots of schools, private or not, have expensive uniforms.

She said lots of other horrible things too. It really shows a lack of maturity from her rather than anything bad about the BRF, who after all can't answer back.

You could hardly accuse Prince Harry of doing the bare minimum. Nobody forced him to create the Invictus Games, or set up Sentebale. Apart from him being into hunting, which his mother abhorred, I think PH is a good guy.

I don't know what the woman is talking about, Prince Harry is a helicopter pilot.

An elementary school child with access to a smart phone could dig up the real facts. Ms. Coad obviously doesn't possess these skilled which reflects badly not only on her but the people she represents in Parliament.

A quick look at Wikipedia even tells us that "It was announced on 21 January 2013 that Harry was returning from a 20-week deployment in Afghanistan, where he served as an Apache co-pilot/gunner."

I remember well when Harry flew over to the US solely for the purpose of training with the Apache helicopter. Its a training that isn't available to just anyone and Harry not only qualified but went on to see active duty in Afghanistan with his skills.

Harry's former commanding officer has written a letter to Emma Coad regarding her mischaracterization of Harry's military record. Apparently, Harry also won an award for best co-pilot gunner during his time in the military, which I don't think we knew about before. His commanding officer also said that it was striking how modest Harry was, and it was extremely hard to convince Harry that he got to where he did not because of his position in the royal family, but rather of his own accord. I read this article earlier in the week, but didn't post it because I found it to be so repulsive, especially the week of IG.

This woman has also backtracked from her initial statement. First is that she had someone tell her what she said as fact, then she was joking. She later released a statement that basically said because Grendel Tower happened, she can slander whomever she wishes to and not apologize. What's even more insulting is the fact that she approved and commanded the Grenfell refurbishment.

I can remember that award being given to Harry, and how he hadn't wanted to take it. Basically the woman is delusional and ignorant. The set up of an Apache helicopter doesn't allow for anyone to sit behind the co-pilot and actually fly the plane! Huge chip on shoulder over royalty, methinks.

I understand Emma Coad won her seat with an absolute minimum of votes.

Judging from her sense of behavior, what she is saying and how she is justifying it, she is forever destined to be a back-bencher. To be forgotten after at most a couple of elections.
Since she can't accomplish anything, because no one can take her seriously, she has to make sure she is noticed otherwise. Unfortunately one sure way to do that is to say something outrageous. Facts doesn't matter, as long as she is noticed...
She may even believe she is right, which IMO only confirms the notion that she really is stupid.
To use the Grenville tragedy to justify her tirades is even more insulting to the victims than anything she believes the BRF are doing.

What it is BTW with the British MP's these days? Some of them have said things recently that must have lowered the standard for stupid behavior by orders of magnitudes!
I thought our current MP's over here say some pretty stupid things, but they are amateurs in comparison!

Prince Harry will present the Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Awards at the Imperial War Museum on Monday 9th October.

That's the next one I can find.

October 25th and 26th if I remember right. He's to meet with Queen "Daisy" Margrethe II of Denmark on the 25th. Two of my favorite royals meeting up. I'll definitely been keeping my eyes open for news about this trip.

Thank you for posting the return info. Does this mean they returned on a commercial flight? who are Harry's travel companions? are they equerries ? Secretaries? advisors?

The sad implication is Harry and Meg's are not together this week.

Commercial flight. Business class I should think.

Edward Lane Fox is Private Secretary and Knauf is Communications Secretary for Cambridges and Harry.

Also security but they are never mentioned

His private travels. I believe they usually go with first class or charter on official business.
