In The News

After having secretly spending 10 weeks on the front lines in Afghanistan fighting Taliban forces, Prince Harry is leaving the country after news of his station was leaked. Few news sources around the world knew of Harry’s deployment, but were asked by the British Military to keep it under wraps so as not to put the prince and his fellow troops in anymore harm than necessary. Prince Harry was labeled as a “Bullet Magnet” and was specifically singled out by enemy forces for capture, ransom and assassination.

The British Prime Minister, earlier today, said that he was proud of Harry’s service, as well as the service of all of the 7,800 British troops in the war, but that at this time, it is in the British Military’s best interest to remove Harry from action since he is so high profile. Prince Harry is third in line for the British throne, following his father Prince Charles and his older brother Prince William.
