PRINCES William and Harry met servicemen wounded in Afghanistan on a secret and emotional visit to a hospital after a personal plea from their father.

The two young Princes went to the Royal Centre for Defence Medicine at Selly Oak in Birmingham last *Friday after Prince Charles told them it was “full to the gunnels” with injured military personnel who needed cheering up.

Thanks!

Prince Harry's former commander in Afghanistan quits over Govt's poor treatment of British troops

Quote:
Prince Harry's former commander in Afghanistan has resigned after clashing with ministers over strategy in the country and policy towards the military.

Major General Andrew Mackay, who was awarded the CBE for his frontline service in Helmand, will take early retirement next month.
Prince Harry spent ten weeks in Afghanistan from December 2007 under Maj-Gen Mackay's command.

However the Ministry of Defence spokesman insisted last night that he was standing down for personal reasons and would not make a statement.
But Army sources told the Mail that the resignation was linked to the general's growing unhappiness over the treatment of the forces.
To send the troops inadequately equipped is quite simply a disgrace.
Those soldiers risk their lives; the least that can be done for them is to minimize the risks.
Perhaps those 'on top' would be well advised to listen to people who actually have been there and know the needs of the army and soldiers first-hand: Major General Andrew Mackay would certainly be among those on top of the list.

All I can say is I agree

Prince Harry is coming to the big screen, in a movie that plans to chart his life from being trapped in a tragic fairytale to becoming a royal warrior, more at home on the field of battle with his men than in a palace.
The picture, to be called The Spare, will be international in scale, with shooting set to start around this time next year on locations in the UK and the Middle East

I think that it's in very poor taste to make a biographical film about someone who's this young. If it were strictly a documentary, I'd feel differently about it. But to have an actor play someone who's still very much alive? No.

I can't help thinking that the opportunity to milk some more money from his parents' unfortunate marriage and his mother's tragic death featured strongly in the decision to make this film. Harry seems like a nice bloke, but is he really an appropriate subject for a biography? IMO he hasn't yet done anything worthy of such a project. It seems a bit tacky to me.

I think it is tacky when he hasn't done much yet worth making a film about.

If he had been an athlete who had won against the odds and had retired (e.g. a swimmer) then maybe but he has a life ahead of him in which to do something noteworthy other than get born and grow up. The vast majority of the human race do that these days.

So his parents got divorced and his mother died - lots of kids have those experiences. It isn't enough to make a movie about.

I, for one, want be wasting my money on watching it.

I agree with Iluvbertie.

If Harry were just an ordinary guy, no one would even think about making a movie about him.

Exactly, Roslyn. I wonder when people will finally stop making money off the tragedy that was the Wales' marriage and Diana's untimely death?

Aside from going to Afghanistan, Harry to my knowledge hasn't done very much that's film-worthy.

Well, this is interesting. I think Hollywood is just wanting to do another Royal movie after the great success of "The Queen" and now with "The Young Victoria" being released.
