Prince Harry:

Back Because of Blabbers

3/1/2008 3:14 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

030108_fred_ap-1Long live the Prince! Prince Harry arrived back in Britain today after a 10 week stint in Afghanistan -- withdrawn after the details of his secret deployment became public.

The Prince did not speak to reporters as he left the troop carrier. Surprise, surprise! According to the AP, Harry was greeted by his father and brother at the Brize Norton air base in Oxfordshire, southern England.

Prince Charles spoke about Harry and the media leak saying, "I feel particular frustration that he was removed unexpectedly early because, apart from anything else, he had been looking forward to coming back with the rest of his regiment."

Officials say the Prince could be deployed later this year, but won't pinpoint exactly where. Shocker!

TO #13 It's easy to do something when your a no one but once you have a career etc its alot different to then go to a warzone as a soldier. Comparing when Bush was in vietnam is in no way comparible to what Prince Harry did which is go to war when he has everything to lose. When Bush sends one of his children or goes as the president/soldier then we will talk.

for those who insist on calling harry a "hewitt", please look up a picture of diana's eldest sister, lady sarah spencer, when she was in her early twenties. harry looks very much like his aunt. and, all of diana's siblings, plus her father, were redheads. no one's denying her affair with hewitt (after all, she didn't!), it's just that harry could look the way he does and easily not be the guy's son.

I have so much respect for Harry for actually joining his fellow countrymen in this fight, and for continuing to be unselfish when his presence there was revealed. Remaining there as he wished would have just cost many more lives needlessly as enemies would have surely targeted British troops even more in the hope of killing him, and I'm sure it was a hard choice to leave.
I'm sure many others knew about Harry's presence in Afghanistan by the time blogs like this were able to pick up the story and spread it to all of us civilians. It would, however, be nice if the bloggers thought a bit before posting possibly sensitive information, though. This isn't just some "celebrity news" drivel, but could have helped cause even more unwarranted loss of life among those currently fighting in the middle east. Poking fun at some celebrity trainwreck is one thing, but can you really live with yourselves knowing that what you chose to post could have contributed to some relatively innocent person's death, TMZ?

I have been reading these comments with great interest. I have not seen one, single person make the observation that if the media could locate Harry, so could the enemies.

To # 13 -In May 1968, at the height of the ongoing Vietnam War, Bush was accepted into the Texas Air National Guard despite[21] only scoring in the 25th percentile[22][23] on the pilot's written aptitude test, which was the lowest acceptable passing grade.[21] This was at a time when more than ten thousand Air National Guard personnel, many fighter pilots, had been called to active duty to serve both in Vietnam, and in support of operations there.[24] After training, he was assigned to duty in Houston, flying Convair F-102s out of Ellington Air Force Base.[25] Critics have alleged that Bush was favorably treated during his time of service because of his father's political standing and that he was irregular in attendance.

Dreamer - so he went to the airport ,big deal. I do not see his daughters or nephews actually fighting. Good for you, Harry - and shame on the people who put his and his battalions lives in danger for a news story.

" I would have admired Prince Harry more if he had stayed. "

He couldn't have stayed. Forget about himself being in danger. Anyone hunting him would have taken out anybody and everybody around him. He would have been a danger to his own men.

Like this was an ACCIDENT? Maybe the royals WANTED somebody to blab that way so he could get brought home and out of harm's way and make it look like they had to for his safety. If he would have left because he wanted to, that just wouldn't look good now would it???? It was planned that way.

A lot of people are acting like Harry was the first soldier to land on Omaha Beach. I don't buy it. He probably slept on silk sheets and had catered meals. Now he'll take a few million out of the family piggy bank and go on a worldwide PR tour.

I fully comprehend the necessity of the Prince's hasty departure but given his tenacity and talent as a soldier, I hoped he would have called granny and pulled rank!

The royals are a target wherever they go simply because of who they are whether in London or Afghanistan....Some of the new threats in the last few hours against Harry are particulary heinous. At least in Afghanistan he hidden (even though the red hair was a giveaway) had his own weapon and was surrounding by mates with theirs.
