I personally hope that the media keeps getting so many messages fed to them by MoD that nobody will ever know whether there is any truth or lie to any of it. What MoD needs to do is just rattle off possibilities a couple times a week to keep everyone guessing.
I could not agree with you more, the MOD should have taken the time to see if it was even feasable for Harry to be sent to Iraq, before they opened there mouth. It is bad enough that the MOD yanked Harry around, it is 100 times worse that the MOD did it in the media spotlight for the world to see.

I disagree. I don't think damage control should be subterfuge. This is affecting the BRF with all of this speculation. Instead of making the media out to be the idiots that they are, Prince Harry is still the victim here and he will continue to be so with all of these games.

How have other governments dealt with the issue of sending a member of there royal family to a war zone?

We should not forget that Harry is a victim, he did not ask for this media circus to erupt around him. Harry just wants to be a soldier and serve his country in a time of war. No one is commending him for that, the media just keeps tearing him dowm.

Good question for some of our in house historians. I don't believe no one of this era has gone. If so, the media definitely was not consulted.

I say chaps, don't you thing you are being unreasonable, trying to stop the media types from making a dollar or two at the expence of someones happiness? Why should they have to consider anyone or anything other than fattening their wallets?

Exactly right! We see who really has the power. Even the BRF can be a casualty regardless of the severity.

Everyone should just stop speculating on where he is going to be deployed. I wish he would take a NICE, SAFE desk job.

Make sure you guys check out the "Civilian Career Ideas for British Royal Family" thread. It could be pretty interesting.

Harry's fans may wish him to be wrapped in cotton wool, but I doubt that Harry would be agreeable.

Harry wants to be on the front lines, serving with his men.

Prince to be asked to guard the queen

British military officials indicated they will ask Prince Harry to transfer to ceremonial duties guarding his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
The prince is a member of the Blues and Royals, part of the Household Cavalry, along with the Life Guards. He would transfer to the Household Mounted Regiment, the Sun reported Friday.
"If he can't be mounted with his men in a tank he will be mounted on a horse," a senior Household Cavalry officer said of Harry's proposed new role. Prince Harry was told he would not be going to Iraq, just days before he was due to fly to Basra. Army chief Gen. Richard Dannatt said specific threats on the prince's life made his deployment an "unacceptable risk" to him and the men around him.

But he doesn't want to, he hasn't trained for it and that's not what his personality draws him to. I don't want him getting shot at, but I don't want him miserable either.

If he's doing this on purpose, I like what he's saying with it. I do think it would look bad if while his comrades are getting attacked in the middle east, he's out boozing it up with friends. He's shown a remarkable amount of maturity for someone who was thought to be in possession of none.

He has always been underminded in the press. It definitely shows maturity. Very commendable.
