No matter what, the pictures and publicity about Harry will help the image and recruitment of British military. He IS a role model.

I find it hilarious that people think HM would abuse her role as Commander in Chief.

I'd also wager a huge bet that the thought of "commanding" Harry to Sandringham never once crossed her mind.

I'm not sure how a smile at the end of a sentence means specifically it's a joke. This also wasn't the only poster who mentioned The Queen as CIC.

Of course it was meant as a joke; a tongue in cheek post.

When one polices a thread one has to find something to jump on. Otherwise, what's the point?

Why thank you, Queen of the Lumuts!

Besides, if Her Majesty jumped out of a plane at the Olympic opening, why not dress up in full regalia and order Harry to Sandringham?

Would this be the same Queen who has attended the passing out parade of new officers at Sandhurst only twice in recent decades, coincidentally in the years that her two grandsons passed out?

She may not 'abuse' her position as Commander-in-Chief, but she certainly is not afraid to use it.

...Harry might have sat in an Army barracks for the last 5 months IN Afghanistan. We will never know.

Glad he's home.

I think there are a thousand and one reasons why not.

Might she have attended the passing out of her two grandsons just like any other grandmother or can you tell me she specifically used her 'powers' as CIC to be allowed at the event?

And you don't think that we wouldn't have found out? Really pointless statement unless you could prove it.

Doesn't Sandringham allow a certain number of passing out tickets per family? I seem to recall that some RF members couldn't attend due to ticket number restrictions.

I said he "might have," not "did." Just speculating, just the same as other speculation that goes on in these threads.

Yes, it may have been a pointless statement, but luckily I am not alone in making them and I find it greatly amusing that my pointless statement got enough rise for you to answer with another...pointless statement.

Happy trails!!!

I'm glad that Harry is home, as I said before.

Aaah, what the hell? Make as many pointless comments as you like Kitty!

Here, I will make one myself: Love that beautiful orange hair Henry boy has. Yeah, I definitely do.

Thanks to Dman for the links. What struck me the most was the comment: "There is quite a cruelty about this institution" i.e. the Royal institution.

Then again, living in a hot desert, I would think that an cold ice cream would really hit the spot and constitute putting the media in second place.

Guys, you do realise that video is fake? The sound effects, at least.
At one point during the interview the alert was sounded and everyone (Harry included) had to immediately report to their posts.
