Yes, he and Jack are great at lifting couches and TVs ! Although Harry has a bad back, so maybe not!

Prince Harry Moves 262 Elephants to Safety : People.com

I bet Harry's having a ball. In his beloved Africa, in the wilds, doing something worthwhile that he absolutely loves.

I think so too. He's got the perfect opportunity to be exactly who he wants to be and do what he really wants to do. I think in the long run, the passions he's found over the last couple of years will last him a lifetime and he'll find a way to incorporate these passions into his public life as a Prince of the UK. It makes life much more meaningful.

Wonder if he's been bitten by the "Africa-bug"?

If so, he'll keep returning. He simply can't stay away.

I think both William and Harry are enamored of Africa and have been for a while. Harry started with Sentebale in Lesotho and William with Tusk and its been an ongoing love affair ever since.

Wow. I learn something new every day. Perhaps, being American, I took it for granted that recognition of being awarded a medal like the Purple Heart was pretty much a given everywhere to honor those that were wounded or killed in the line of duty. I had no clue that Britain didn't follow suit with a similar medal of their own.

I definitely do not feel that it would be "unBritish" to do this but a much needed show of support and thanks to those that have made significant sacrifices fighting for their country.

Well done Harry!

Its difficult to say if he supports it or not. The story is based on an unnamed 'military source' and Kensington Palace declined to comment.

If he does support it, it would be better to publicly say so. It would give the story more credence.

That's a good initiative.

I believe most other countries have one by now.

Harry is heart and soul with the wounded and maimed soldiers of Britain, and indeed the world, as he's proved again and again. I think it's a great initiative, and I prefer to believe that he is indeed supporting this initiative.

The Mirror tabloid is campaigning for it, but it's unclear if the military wants it. It's a good initiative if soldiers want it.

Traditionally, Commonwealth countries don't award medals simply for getting shot or wounded. We don't have it in Canada.

Medals are awarded for acts of gallantry and valour

But if this is indeed something new and the soldiers on the ground are campaigning for it, it's a good initiative.

If Harry does support it, I still think he should say so, rather than issue a 'no comment'

September's Majesty magazine has Harry on the cover. Ingrid Seward writes about his 'good deeds' and calls him a 'mover and shaker'. Looking forward to reading the article.

There are many service members with 'invisible' wounds (mental trauma) too..I am guessing Harry may be able to grasp a little of that due to his own experiences.

An argument against the equivalent of a Purple Heart for wounded British service personnel.

MAX HASTINGS: Prince Harry's wrong on medals for wounded soldiers | Daily Mail Online

I'm quite conflicted on this. On the one hand I wouldn't want to see medals being handed out willy nilly. It devalues them. On the other hand I do believe that British soldiers (and those in Commonweath countries too) deserve a special award if they are wounded or maimed while on active service.

If you are wounded or killed in action. You deserve a medal IMO, period.

I had initally thought it was the same cottage William & Kate, followed by Harry had moved into (Nottingham??) so yes, Harry would have known his way around!

Harry rescues a trapped 13 ft crocodile. He's certainly having his share of adventures. Lots of fantastic memories.
