Back to harry: there a article in the BRF news tread about a life portrait of the Royals (Will and harry included). The artist says about Harry:
I agree about the portrait of Harry in uniform, but it's kind of a de rigueur portrait.

Harry delighted at missing Latin. Inconceivable. :)

Personally, I'm impressed he took Latin! Didn't know that.

I think Will is fluent in latin..isn't he? or is it french..I just confussed myself! With latin he could know all of the scientific names of animals and things! Charles would love that, he seems like the type of person who loves knowledge.

I don't really like the picture with Harry in his uniform. It seems very boring and amature like. It doesn't look professional to me. I could have taken a better photo of him in his uniform (not to sound dirty!)

Both Princes took Latin and I believe that they both got Latin awards at GCSEs.

Well, he did go to Chile and I heard him (on TV, I wasn't there!) speaking Spanish to the children. He also made a lame attempt to explain that his name was Guillermo or William and that he was a wombat (do the Spanish even have a word for wombat??).

The wombat thing, I think he was telling the kids to think of what animal they would be, and he told them he was a wombat. Everyone thought it was cute that he brought up the wombat thing from his childhood. Remember they called him Wombat.

Prince Harry plans to be frontline soldier

Britain's Prince Harry is planning to be a frontline soldier in the notoriously tough Welsh Guards....The prince will formally make a decision in January next year. Military seniors will then interview him before making a decision. However, Ministry of Defence chiefs will reportedly discuss whether it is sensible to have the prince in such a high risk position.

Are you sure it was English he spoke? I heard so many complaints about his accent that I'm not sure...

Harry's Sandhurst nickname (?)

Well I am a French living in Manchester, so I think I'm pretty used to awful accents (even by English standards). And I would certainly qualify Harry's as difficult. Clear as pure water to my ears...

From the Sunday Mirror

HARRY IS THE 'RED BARON'

PRINCE Harry has been dubbed the "Red Baron" by cadets at Sandhurst in a dig at his German roots, ginger hair - and Nazi fancy dress oufit.

And the prince's pals at the world-famous military academy have circulated on email a computer-generated image of Harry as the wartime dogfighter.

The picture shows the prince appearing to fly Baron Manfred von Richthofen's famous World War One triplane - covered with swastikas (though the Nazi symbol wasn't in use in the 1914-18 conflict). A Sandhurst source said: "Everyone's having a good laugh at him.

"A lot of people call him the German - people's heritage is important at a place like this - and the Red Baron tag has stuck because it suits him.

"Harry is a good lad and takes it in his stride when people wind him up."

Harry, who sparked outrage in January by wearing a Nazi uniform with a swastika armband to a fancy dress party.

He was trying to get them to find an animal whose name began with the same letter as their own name. W for William and wombat (his childhood nickname).

I've heard of that, but I'm not sure he ever went through with it.
