Prince Harry Goes to Iraq

Hosted by

Britain may be reducing its troops in Iraq, but that does not mean that Troop Commander Wales--otherwise known as Prince Harry--will be staying at home. Third in line to the British throne, the second lieutenant could become the first royal to see combat since 1982, when his uncle, Prince Andrew, flew Navy helicopters during the Falklands war against Argentina. How close will he get to possible combat? What will his presence mean for other soldiers? Historian Charles Carlton is author of Royal Warriors: a Military History of the British Monarchy.
