well I don't think he should go as it's too dangerous for someone who's 3rd in line to a throne.

If it is ok for the son of Joe Bloggs then it is ok for the son of Charles Mountbatten-Windsor.


It's not like the days of George III with only one legitimate grandchild. The Queen has 12 direct descendents of her own and then there are Margaret's children before the Gloucesters and Kents etc.

If he died it wouldn't end the monarch by really affecting the line all that much.

Harsh I know but realistic.

Personally I would like to leave Afghanistan to the Afghanis and pull all our men and women out.

No one ever defeats the Afghanis and the US/Nato forces will be no more successful there than the Soviets were in the 80s or the British in the 19th C or......back through history.

Whether he should or shouldn't go to war, I just hope he doesn't.

Perhaps a little silly yes but I wouldn't call it "incredibly stupid".

I am confused. How can something be "funny" and "yet incredibly stupid". Or even garden variety "stupid"for that matter?

Their Christmas card shows that they are a couple. I think Prince Harry and Chelsey Davies are going to surprise us and live as a couple before Prince William and Katherine Middleton. If they are not serious then I agree it was not a bright move.

I hardly think this qualifies them as a couple, it appears that they did the card as a goof with a couple of friends. The card is silly but that is the point. Is not like an official Christmas card sent out by The Queen.

The only thing stupid is that they obviously sent it to someone who they thought as a friend who decided to sell them out. Just goes to show that you can't trust everybody and I don't blame William and Harry for not straying from a select group of friends. But perhaps the card was sent out by a friend of the other people in the card. We will never know.

No? What else? Well, if they are not a couple again then William and Kate are only best friends.

Many people (especially young people) are doing these eCards now. They're clever and convenient and save on postage. They're becoming the "in" thing to do. The picture she chose for Harry is too funny.

^ Quite right. And let's not forget it saves on paper. Plus they're just so darned cute and entertaining! Good for a giggle. I like the card Chelsy picked out.

What a pity he doesn't know the timeline of events!

Yes the New Idea broke the story on the 7th January but the MoD and others ignored that and it wasn't for another 8 weeks before the Drudge report broke the story that he was pulled.

I don't agree that New Idea did the right thing but that wasn't the report that ended his tour.

His anger should be directed to the Drudge report that forced the MoD to act or to the MoD that decided to pull him anyway.

I don't see why he can't just go and kill people if that is what he wants to do and why it has to be kept secret. All this mollycoddling and extra protection for a soldier is ridiculous. If he needs that then he should leave the military and not cause this extra needs so that he can serve in the army and kill other human beings.

Prince Harry 'furious with New Idea'

I must say, I don't blame him. If my dream was crushed for the time being by the press I would be pretty upset.

However it wasn't New Idea breaking the story that ended his service.

New Idea published the story on 7th January and no one took any notice.

It wasn't until the Drudge report posted the story 8 weeks later that he was pulled out.

If it had been the New Idea story that had ended his tour of duty he would have lasted only until about 8 - 9th January and not the majority of his tour.

I don't think it was right that New Idea or Drudge published the information from the beginning. The extra security surrounding Harry is understandable but he is a soldier and in wartime a soldier goes to war and war has its consequences
