He also gave a short but moving speech, describing his pride and nerves as a Junior Captain in the Army Air Corps at being in front of an audience with ‘so many years of extraordinary military service’.

‘It is an honour and a thrill to stand in these surroundings. The Royal Hospital – this world famous place – represents
all that is great about our Country: beauty, traditional – and the wisdom that does with that – selflessness and duty,’ he said.

And he couldn’t resist getting in a dig at his RAF Search and Rescue pilot brother – it is something of a dare between the pair to make a joke at each other’s expense when making public speeches.

‘I find it terrifying that your drill is so much better than my brother's, but it doesn’t surprise me,’ he quipped.

I love that he asked to do this particular parade and that he couldn't resist a dig at his big brother. I saw it on TV and I just cracked up at the reaction of the audience.

I can't help wishing nobody had to go to Afghanistan!

But I've read he wants to go, and that's creditable.

I think it's an honourable undertaking. , and Harry has the experience on the ground, first when he had his "secret" trip,..... then the experience in Suffolk, ...and now Afghanistan.

I like to think that even the BRF cannot be immune from these events.

Harry knows what he Volunteered for and I can't help but think if they won't let him do his job then they shouldn't let him train for these kinds of jobs. So I hope he goes, secretly. All of these leaks is crazy. What happened to national security? It makes me wonder why the military tells the kind of people they do about Harry's job when they know people will sell him out.

Brave isn't exactly the word I'd use for Harry in this case though. Cackling with glee might be more like it. Harry braving the rain? What is he gonna do? Melt? Take another dip in the artic pool?

This is obviously an event that both brothers have looked forward to for ages and they both get to play off against each other for charities they both believe in. All the more reason that I think in years to come, although we've seen Harry as William's best man, we'll also see him as a supporter as I think William will also support Harry in any direction of life he chooses.

The two them reminds me of the Beatles tune "Two of Us".

I don't believe for a New York minute that Harry will return to the front lines in Afganistan. Perhaps AFTER Wills and Kate are parents.

He may visit, but I don't believe he will be deployed to harm's way; he is the spare.

Funny, since he's been before, and William was even further from being a parent then. If they were worried about the line of succession, it seems it would have been a greater risk to send Harry before William was married and in a position to start producing heirs.

I'm sure he'll go, and I'm fairly sure it'll be something we hear about afterwards, not as it's happening. Just like before.

He's been before when William wasn't even married. You'd think now would be a safer time for him to leave in regards to succesion issues.
