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.

OhPlease    

Oh and TMZ didnt break this... it was on Fox News and all the other news channels early this morning, right after the British government gave the all clear to go ahead and publiize it. Dont be so dramatic.

Below is the link to the story when it was broken by Australian women's magazine 'New Idea' on January 7th. It was taken up by the Drudge Report only today.

Just goes to show how irresponsible gossip magazines are. Especially New Idea, who slavishly follow any thing to do with the royals, revealing it's colonial inferiority complex. Thanks to their stupidity, they're not gonna get anywhere near Buckingham Palace anytime soon. LOL!

I THINK IT'S SAD THAT SOMEONE FELT THE NEED TO OUT HIM [FOR RATINGS, NO DOUBT] IN HIS SERVICE TO HIS COUNTRY. HE JOINED THE SERVICE KNOWING HE COULD GO TO WAR AND IS FULFILLING HIS OBLIGATION. AND DOING QUITE WELL AT IT FROM, ALL THE REPORTS. HE DIDNT SHIRK HIS RESPONSIBILITY, AND HE PROBABLY COULD HAVE. HE IS BEING A GOOD SOLDIER. I DO NOT SUPPORT THE WAR BUT AM 1000% BEHIND THE TROOPS WHO HAVE TO SERVE. AND I APPRECIATE THEIR SACRIFICES. BRING THEM ALL HOME ASAP, THEN THEY CAN ALLLL GET ON WITH THEIR LIVES.THERE WILL NEVER BE PEACE IN THE MIDDLE EAST. JUST LOOK AT HISTORY.

I cant belive all the comments that are about how cute harry is ....Are you guys serious? The media has leaked where prince Harry is and now hes in alot more danger then he was when he first got there, Not to mention the other men fighting next to Harry. I think you all should show a little compasion .

You know I feel sorry for Prince Harry & William. Esp Prince Harry because he doesn't seem that he really wants to be a royal. He's just stuck with it. Unfortunately there's no way that he'll ever be able to be "just normal" but everyone has challenges in their lives and I'm sure they will figure out a life path that works for them.

About this topic though I find it really stupid of whoever told that he was serving. It's almost like making him a target for terrorists!! I think he should end his tour now because people are crazy and might try to take advantage of this. Glad he was able to have the experience though

So tell me TMZ, were you the one who 'outted' Prince Harry in Afghanistan? Apparently this was kept under wraps since last December and some US Celebrity Gossip site felt the need to put many many soldiers in harms way.

Do you really sleep at night?

I personally appreciate Prince Harry's service in the fight against radical islam. Centuries ago, the King himself would lead his people into battle. Now, authorities either do not allow Harry to go, or pull him out after his presence is revealed. Harry seems to have the heart that previous Kings had when they fought side by side with their people. Either allow Harry to fight like the regular people do, or discharge him from the military!!!

Out with the images of partying in a Nazi uniform, in with the young warrior who lost his mother when young but who has now grown up.
Not buying it.

You know this story is bull crap! Little Harry probably called home. I mean without a maid and everyone kissing his ass all the time what was he supposed to do? Little punk! You can tell this is all bull to try and show him as a warrior. When in reality he's and druken idiot like those who believe this story. Yeah, right, "the story licked out,"!
