Harry not going

The head of the UK Army has decided that Prince Harry will be too big a risk as a high profile target, and will not be deployed to Iraq, due to specific threats against him.

He will be gutted and kudos to him for being so firm in his desire to go. It does highlight the consequences of having a hereditary monarchy where people by virtue of their birth alone are given a special place in society. If not for that he would just be a 22 year old solider of no interest to the insurgents.
