After media outlets broke a story that had been held under wraps for over two months, Prince Harry has headed home from his military service in Afghanistan.
The warrior prince also has a few choice words for the press in his native Britain.
“I generally don’t like England that much and, you know, it’s nice to be away from all the press and the papers and the general shite that they write.”
Under an agreement in the British press, those comments were made available to everyone and have the royal family scratching their heads as to what to do with the latest words from the royals to fan English flames.
Third in line to the British throne, Harry was livid at an American website that had leaked information about his military tour of duty. Figuring the story was out, British media outlets ran with the story that they had agreed to keep quiet. Harry seems to be more angry at the British press for violating their gag agreement than the American publication that broke the story.
Harry told a British reporter that he is tired of “sitting around” in the Windsor Castle and enjoyed his time on the front lines.
As video of Harry shot around the globe shooting machine guns and generally doing everything any other soldier would do, the prince was quickly on a plane out of the war zone. Seems when your in line for the throne and everyone knows your in a war zone, the enemy might focus its energies a little differently.
After his discussions about going to Iraq last year were squashed, the fact he got 10 weeks of service on the front lines is miraculous in this media-crazed world where a cell phone picture could have derailed this tour of duty long ago.
