"The 22-year-old prince will head for Basra with comrades from the Blues and Royals Regiment within days and will then probably be deployed along the border with Iran."

They say young Wales threatened to resign his commission if he were not permitted to see action with his comrades in the Blues and Royals Regiment. Good for him. The military is about the only career available for a spare prince and you can't have any respect from your colleagues if you are totally pampered because of your family connections. So, like his uncle Andrew (the prior generation's spare prince) before him, Harry is off to the only war available to his generation of young officers.
