Prince Harry On the Front Line in Afghanistan

2/28/2008 2:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Prince HarryBritain's Defense Ministry confirmed today that Prince Harry is fighting on the front line in Afghanistan. Protect the face at all costs!

Details of his Royal Hotness' three-month tour had previously been kept secret. The Prince, a second lieutenant in the Household Cavalry, is third in line to the throne, behind his father Prince Charles and his big brother Prince William.

Harry's uncle (and Fergie's -- princess not the singer -- ex) Prince Andrew also served during the Falkland War.

Facts    

EffinMoron just about describes you doesn't it? Probably because he could be used as a tool to get what the enemy wants, jack ass. What do you think would happen if he was captured? Do you think they would be all nice to him? No, he would be tortured for information, in probably a more gruesome way than was done to just a regular marine.

Beth are you really that dense? The 2nd-in-line-to-the-throne would NEVER be sent to war. Use what I assume must be a fairly capable brain , or stop posting and showing your idiocy.

if you know anything about the brits and the royal family, they are a stoic people. if harry decided to go out on the front lines, then that is his right! i think it is a HUGE exagerration to say he will probably be kidnapped and tortured etc. im pretty sure when you are in your camo wear with paint all over your face in the middle of a huge army it would be hard to pick apart which soldier was harry. but if he was kidnapped, im hoping he would tell his country to not cause any unnecessary chaos. "if you can't do it yourself then no one else can do it for you" is the attitude many brits have and i wish more American's felt this way. HE LOVES HIS COUNTRY AS A FUTURE LEADER SHOULD AND IS WILLING TO SACRIFICE HIS LIFE FOR HIS COUNTRY. these are the markings of a king. if he was just a regular wuss like most of the people on TMZ, he would probably be hiding out in a secret room at his granny's pad playing the wii. but fortunately, he has chosen to come face to face with the enemy the soldiers are fighting against. just think... if he gets out of this alive he will be matured and more understanding of the perils of war. i wouldn't want anyone running my country who feels they can send their soldiers out to war yet see themselves as the exception to the rule. especially when they are young and physically able to take on the role.

I think it's absolutely RIDICULOUS that Harry is even allowed to be out there in the first place! So what if he WANTS to do it? You can't always get what you want in this life! The fact is, he's royalty, and royalty carries responsibility with it. Royals don't usually get to do whatever they want with their lives, and it's an age-old dilemma, so why is Harry an exception?

Would it really be such a tragedy if princey boy didn't get to play hero and got stuck in an office job? Yes, it's very admirable that he wants to help protect his country and that he's willing to risk his life doing so, but it's NOT a good idea. A noble idea, yes; but a smart one, NO! Really, Harry puts the entire team in danger by being out there because he's a prime target. He's nothing but a burden on the others because now they're constantly going to have to worry about the prince's safety when all they should have to worry about out there is themselves!

Harry wants to prove that he doesn't think that his life is more valuable than anyone else, but the fact of the matter is that Harry's life IS more valuable to the TERRORISTS! Can you imagine what a bartering chip he'd be for them if they got their hands on him?! Britain would bend over backwards to save one of their princes, and I'm sorry, but we all know they wouldn't react quite the same way if it was one of the commoners that got captured instead. THAT's why Harry's different than anyone else. As long as he's there, Harry is putting everyone around him in even more danger than they were in before because the enemies ARE going to be trying to get to HIM. Didn't they even SAY so before that there was a plan to capture Harry?

Please, send Harry HOME out of it already before he gets himself kidnapped and everyone else killed. His royal status is jeopardizing the entire mission! The best way for him to help protect Britain is to keep himself safe and get out of Afghanistan!

I have the utmost respect for Harry. They are not making him be on the front lines... he WANTS to be there! His family said no and he fought it all the way! He is a true hero! This move alone makes him HOTTER than William!

Prayers for you, Harry - stay safe!

Harry's bio-dad is major James Hewitt...His signet ring was found in Diana's most valuable terasures and her bodygaurd curiously called his book "Closely Guarded Secret" . Diana's butler, Paul Burrell claims he has a "dark secret" on youtube.com and it is believed in many circles that Harry's parentage is "the secret"!

Basically, Diana betrayed Queen and Country by having Harry. And she paid dearly for it..in many ways....

Harry and William are magnificent young men and I wish them well...

Prince Harry looks like his mama's lover. The hot horse guy DIana was nailing. That's why Harry has all of his hair. Thank goodness he didn't get Charles' DNA!

Duh!    

Now here is a man of honor. He is doing what he knows is right. He could have easily skirted any service and hung out at the beach and nightclubs like so many other wasted souls.

We're proud of you Harry. You are a TRUE man.

I'm sure Harry is aware that he could be captured and used as a pawn for negotiations. He would probably expect to be treated as any soldier if he were captured and would not want his country to suffer in order to protect himself from physical harm. Give the men and women who are fighting more credit. They are HEROES and are selfish people....if they were selfish they wouldn't be in harms way.

'bout time    

Harry is doing a very selfless,honorable duty and his mates find him a great asset, there is a reason this was done secretly and should have remained that way it is just another reckless, irresponsible, disgusting example of exploitation in the name of journalism no one needed to run this story at this time it was not pressing breaking news, just a conscious chioce by media to be lacking in morality, and conscience and possibly put lives at risk,and detour a young mans effort to do something with his life. Bravo Harry! The leaking of this story is beyond reprehensive.

To anyone who thinks the Taliban doesn't have access to the Web, read some of the reports of our soldiers of what they find over there. They've found computers. Believe me, the Web is AQ's primary source of intelligence on American targets. And we're stupid enough to post everything. You can also check out any building in America with Google maps. We are all idiots.
