Excellent- I find Prince Harry' s military commitment impressive as I find all men and women who commit and serve impressive as well.

Those pictures are excellent of Price Harry. He seems to have a great personality.

How awesome for those sailors to get their medals from Prince Harry himself. I must say, he cuts a dashing figure in his uniform.

Good for him for getting international attention for the Mary Rose visit, managed to hear about it even out here on the other side of the planet.

The museum sounds so worthwhile and interesting, especially for those of us interested in the England of Tudor times.

Prince marks Mary Rose milestone - East Hampshire - The News

Short video about Harry's visit. I liked his joke about the longbow . Also nice to hear that people enjoyed meeting him. I wish he would make more public visits as he seems so comfortable meeting different types of people. I sense that he throws himself into it and it works really well.

Yes, I agree jemagre. He might get more royal engagements when Prince Philip gives up some of his duties.

I have a real fear for the prince to go to Afghanistan, but I know he will go because he is brave and he loves being a soldier that doesn't want to sit on his a-----.

I did not think about the Prince Phillip aspect of things before you mentioned it but that is a good point.

Thanks for this Jemagre- The man beside the woman showing Harry the longbow is my favorite actor Robert Hardy who also happens to be a longbow expert, and patron of The Mary Rose Trust!
So for me the video was extra

For all the smiles, in between he looked very pensive and not a little like a very lonely man. Not much fun being surrounded by middle-aged minders I suppose.

I think he's certainly becoming a star in his own right. I did not take to him at first, but he seems to take to soldiering !

It could be that Marg. Or do you think he was embarrassed getting photographed going it that bar?

He is like fine wine he gets better with age. Thanks for the pictures with Harry and the pinstripe jacket. Even though this is not a fashion thread that jacket looks great on him and I would like to see him in some more items like that. Interesting fact about Robert Hardy. I had no idea who he is was but with your information it was great that he was there. Thanks.

This should be a link of Prince Harry standing next to King Henry VIII while he was touring the Mary Rose. See the resemblance. LOL.

There is no resemblance as the Tudor line died out about 600 years ago. They look absolutely nothing alike.

You are welcome. I do not know if you are familiar with the James Herriot books, but Mr. Hardy is most famous for portraying Siegfried in the BBC TV series, All Creatures Great and Small. The series is a nice starting point, if you are interested in seeing some of his work. He has acted in loads of British TV series and films... awhile ago I put a thread about him in the Media Center section.
And now I am way off topic... sorry!
Now back to Harry!
