My daughter’s crew worked with his squad and they were just as annoyed that Harry had been ‘outed’.
My admiration for Young Harry has to do with his military service - in the infantry on the line and in successfully becoming a an Apache pilot - all voluntary.
I have family in the military - also involved in combat in afghanistan - some of the most intense and prolonged combat of any war. And another a navy pilot/flight instructor, now a C-130 pilot.
I have at least an inkling of what it takes to achieve what they have and to put themselves on the line.
As to your ignorant inference that my admiration for Prince Harry is of the romantic kind - I suspicion he'd not be enamored of an old great-granny.
But keep posting your 'inaneness' - it shows us more of who and what you are - and ARE NOT.
Serious question: Is that even a possibility in British royal tradition? There's certainly a long history of career military service among the nobility and even monarchies of Germany and some other European countries, but I'm quite aware that the British royals are not exactly free to do whatever they want. My impression is that while a short period of military service has been normal for male royals in Britain, there hasn't been someone in the royal family making a career of military service, at least not for many centuries dating back before the development of modern military concepts and separation of civilian and military authority.
