Prince Harry serving in Afghanistan
After weeks of secrecy among the British press, the online site The Drudge Report broke the story that Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, had been serving in a dangerous region in Afghanistan since late December.
The younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana was denied permission serve in Iraq last year, as it was feared his presence would put him and his unit at risk.
Shortly after the news broke that there was royalty among the opposition, several Islamist websites issued alerts to be on the lookout for this high-profile soldier.
"O brothers of monotheism, if you find anyone with unusual security in his battalion, know that this could be the Prince Harry. We ask God that he gets caught on your hands," one posting read.
The British Defense Ministry said due to the leak, Prince Harry will be immediately pulled from Afghanistan.
"All my wishes have come true," Harry told reporters in last week's camp interview, noting that he had not showered in four days.
"It's very nice to be sort of a normal person for once; I think it's about as normal as I'm going to get," said Harry.
