Just curious what people opinions are of this. I'm happy for him in a strange kinda way - I'm from a slightly military family (both grandparents and father) so admire what he's doing and glad he's been given the opportunity to finally do it.

Was surprised that it's been kept a secret for as long as it has. And I really hope he comes home safely

I admire him for his determination in fulfilling his military participation in Afghanistan, given his obvious family background and being 3rd in line to the throne. To any parent and extended family, Prince Harry is no more or no less important as any other soldier fighting in war regions so good on him.

Ain't the Americans absolute pillocks sometimes? Why the f*** did they find it necessary to release this information when his anonymity and unknown presence there was suffice? Not only have they put his safety (and that of thousands more) at risk, they have forced him to withdraw from a job he was quite happy doing by all accounts.

We have a few American's here so have to be polite but waht they did isn't right - they should have respected it, he only had 5 weeks left of his tour, it's not asking a lot for the additional safety of several people

You're quite right Shelli, I should have specified that statement by referring directly of the 'pillocks' who released the info. on Prince Harry's presence there. Having American family & friends, I wouldn't dare encourage their wrath.

I've got great sympathy for Harry and his comrades who remain in Afghanistan, they're obviously a unit who have trained and fought together. Let's hope the opportunity returns for them to do the job that they want to do.

Did anyone watch the series on Sky One with Ross Kemp in Afghanistan? I only caught the last programme and wish I'd watched the previous episodes.

Although I am completely against war and could rant about that for hours, I have great respect for any soldier risking their life to potentially help others. I'm sure Prince Harry is gutted that he will have to return from action, and I think that releasing the information that he was there was extremely stupid and wrong. But now the info is out it is more than just his life that is being placed at more risk than already present. I hope he return home safely.

And as for the Ross Kemp thing, I did catch one episode, I think it was the last, was quite upsetting in some places but a great inisight.
