Harry At War

Sounds like a royal family driven PR campaign to me.

They’re calling him “Harry the Hero!”

British Royal Prince Harry has been fighting in Afghanistan since late December — and has been directly involved in battle.

Australian magazine NEW IDEA and the German daily BILD have broken world embargoes on the development. CNN has debated internally on the merits of reporting Harry at war.

The prince, a junior officer in the Blues and Royals, and third in line to the throne, has been a “magnificent soldier” and an “inspiration to all of Briton.”

Prince Harry is talking part in a new offensive against the Taliban.

Ministry of Defense and Clarence House refuse all comment. Army chiefs have managed to keep the prince away from media and have encourage fellow soldiers in his squadron to stay quiet.

I have absolutely no problem with Prince Harry wanting to serve his country. I applaud him for that. In fact, I’d bet he’s he type who would rather keep this whole thing quiet. Problem is, he’s surrounded by old people who want to keep the magic of the Windsor Dynasty alive. A quest to manufacture in Harry the kind of reverence found previously in Diana.

Ooops, hold on.

I’m actually blogging about the royal family. My apologies.
