An event made for Harry I would say, he's completely in his element,
and as always his face expressions are some of the best..

Here's the gallery of today's pics without watermarks:

Pink shorts aside, it sounds like a great idea for a fundraiser.

I wonder if Harry will have to endure some razzing from his older brother about the pink underwear?

He's so handsome in those pix. It takes a confident man to wear pink underwear.

As to Harry's career choice? He has shown himself as a fine Soldier in whatever role he has been allowed to assume. The fact that he qualified for Apache Helicopter Pilot training seems to indicate that he is more than a little "sharp". He seems to thrive in the military and he is obviously able to lead and inspire, no small ability, and even though he was deployed for a relatively short time in Afghanistan he has earned some respect!

To state that a man, joins the military for no other reason than it fulfills his "constant desire to go shoot at people" and "is immature", and that "young men desire the thrill of combat", implies that War is just a game at best and a substitute for blood sport at worst, and is therefore, an insult to every serving and retired member of Her Majesty's Forces throughout Britain and the Commonwealth, regardless of status, rank or gender!
Well looking at the history of horrors of what "Her Majesty's Forces" have accomplished: slavery, colonization ect... I'm not very impressed by the institution. However, I believe today the British military are honourable and are motivated/believe in helping people.

To me going into combat doesn't prove intelligence (unless you're the strategist). It involves bravery, yes. Intelligence? no. Being good at a career or being a nice person doesn't equal intelligence (although in my opinion those are far superior qualities over intelligence).

As for Chelsey... was she not a drunken/smoking nymphet?
I liked her--but I never took her seriously. She looked like Paris Hilton with a better body and degree. I'm glad she isn't marrying Harry, for her sake. I don't think she'd be happy with people (like me) tearing her down through the entire potential marriage. Kate seems more... resolved to that fate.

Yes, it´s the red poppy and remembers the poppy fields in Flandres where upon many british soldiers lost their lives during World War I (1914- 1918)

Charlotte....people tend to wear the poppies at other events as a sign of respect for those fallen. Not just at veteran/war related events.

You don't have to wear it specifically for Veteran/War events, people start wearing them around the middle of October. BBC newsreaders had been criticised for wearing them too early.

Is it just me or do I really see Harry feeling quite emotional at this point in Pic 2?

Its really fitting that he was there to do this.
