Indeed we are being spoiled...it'll be a long time between shipping out and coming back home after his stint in Iraq (minus the time he will be home for Diana engagement).

That's really a very sweet picture, thank you for posting ir christinacg.
In the second picture, it looks like no one is actually on the joke apart from the girl.

TARGET HARRY

ARMY chiefs have held crisis talks to prevent Prince Harry being posted to Iraq, amid growing fears for his safety.

Harry, 22, is due to fly to the war zone next month where he is expected to take charge of a troop of 12 men patrolling the Iranian ­border in Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles.

But a senior Army source has told the Sunday Express that top-level talks have begun in a last-ditch bid to block the deployment.

He should be able to go, he wants to go, it may do him good theres no ABSOULUTE proof itll be a total disaster. I Predict He could go Further than the Duke of Yorks 22 year career.

I don't want him to go. I don't want anyone to go. It's a horrible business for anyone. I think it's good to prevent another potential body bag if possible.

I'm staggered it's taken these military chiefs so long to work this all out. Why couldn't they foresee the risks when his deployment was initially considered. We could.

I'm a little disturbed by the fact that the article comes under the heading "NEWS/SHOWBIZ".

How reliable is this paper? Is this just a slow news week and therefore i'ts once more round the block with the same old twaddle?

Royals fear for Prince in Iraq

PRINCE Harry's planned tour of duty in Iraq was being urgently reassessed yesterday after two British soldiers were killed in a bomb blast doing the same job the young royal will perform.

Ditto. May le bon Dieu bless everyone in that carnage-house, which Iraq has become.

I have mixed feeling about Harry's deployment. On the one hand, he's third in line to the throne and it would be ghastly should anything happen to him (or anyone else, for that matter) as I just can't envisage a King Andrew, should anything happen to William.

On the other hand, he's an officer in the army, and it's his duty to serve, particularly in times of conflict, no matter what we might think of any particular conflict.

On balance, and despite the great risks to him and his unit, I think, reluctantly, that Harry should go.

My great hope is that he'll return home again, hale and hearty.

Polly I agree with you 100%. If he is going to serve in the army then he has to go and everyone knew that in advance of him joining the army. He will never be able to truly get the respect of his troops, or fellow officers, if he isn't allowed to go, in my opinion.

If they didn't want him to go then there were, in my opinion, two options - not let him join the army or not deploy his unit to Iraq - say send them on peace keeping duties elsewhere for instance, but to have his unit deploy and him not go is not an option in my opinion if Harry is to have any chance of really succeeding in the army.

Apparently they might have gotten something. But, there again, so did other tabloids that may or mayn ot have the story right.

The BRF, i.e. Dad, Grandma and Grandpa are all behind Harry, not the latest drivel. The Queen's proud grin at her grandson at his Passing Out parade said it all!

Option 1: Fail. They let him enlist.

Option 2. His unit has received notice to deploy. Any notice of redeployment will be viewed (not least by Harry himself) as endorsing the notion that while all men may be equal, some are more equal than others.

All in all a lose lose situation. (Not least of all Harry's resignation).

Not to mention the further drop in morale when the UK troops realise that it is OK for them to risk their lives for Queen and country, but not HM's grandson!

If Harry is reassigned now, in an effort to stop him going, he will never live it down, within a couple of weeks the story will be that he chickened out!

The MoD aren't that stupid are they? Please, please tell me that the second most popular oxymoron is not true... well at least not in this case.

He will become an angry failure and turn into the ultimate party prince and do nothing but drown his sorrows and play polo.
