Prince Harry; a 2nd Lt. in the Blues and Royals Regiment who favored entering the Army over the Royal Navy, will be serving in southern Iraq by the
end of the month. It is thought that he will be involved in reconnaissance missions. Most of the Royal family member who joined the UK armed forces
traditionally go to the Royal Navy. Harry, 22, has stated that he wants to be treated no differently from other officers he trained with at the
Sandhurst Military Academy. Although his royal status has to be taken into account, he will likely to see action into the battlefield.
LONDON -- Britain's Prince Harry will be serving in southern Iraq by the end of the month with his army regiment, probably taking part in
reconnaissance missions near the Iran border, a newspaper reported Saturday.
"The final details are being sorted, but he is definitely going. Naturally, his royal status has to be taken into account -- but he will see
action," the source was quoted as saying.
"As a young officer Harry will want to go to war as a point of pride. There would have been no point in him training for this if that was never going
to happen," the source said.

I wonder how far he can really be involved in the frontline. His presence alone can give extreme interest to the enemy combatant. He can be a most
likely valuable target.
But just like the rest of the UK armed forces, he does not want to be treated differently.
