    breaking news: Prince Harry in Afghanistan fighting

    Prince Harry has been fighting the Taleban on the front line in Afghanistan, the MoD has confirmed.

    Harry, 23, who is third in line to the throne, has spent the last 10 weeks serving in Helmand Province.

    The prince joked about his nickname "the bullet magnet", but said: "I finally get the chance to do the soldiering that I want to do."

    The deployment was subject to a news blackout deal, which broke down after being leaked by foreign media.

    Chief of the General Staff Sir Richard Dannatt, who is head of the British Army, said he was disappointed the news had leaked.


    It's very nice to be sort of a normal person for once

    Harry on Afghan life

    In a statement, he said: "I am very disappointed that foreign websites have decided to run this story without consulting us.

    "This is in stark contrast to the highly responsible attitude that the whole of the UK print and broadcast media, along with a small number overseas, who have entered into an understanding with us over the coverage of Prince Harry on operations."

    Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Prince Harry had been an "exemplary solider".

    "The whole of Britain will be proud of the outstanding service he is giving," he said.

    "I want to thank Prince Harry and all of our service personnel for their contribution and service."

    'No showers'

    Prince Harry - a member of the Household Cavalry - has been based in a former madrassa along with a Gurkha regiment, in southern Helmand.

    He is acting as a tactical air controller - calling up allied air cover in support of ground forces.

    He also goes out on foot patrols.

    In an interview while in the Afghan province, Harry talked about life as a soldier on the front line.

    "I haven't really had a shower for four days, I haven't washed my clothes for a week.

    "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.

    "I am still a little bit conscious of the fact that if I show my face too much in and around the area - luckily there's no civilians around here because it's...a no-man's land.


    Prince Harry is very proud to serve his country on operations alongside his fellow soldiers
    Prince of Wales's spokesman

    "But I think that if, up north, when I do go up there, if I do go on patrols in amongst the locals, I'll still be very wary about the fact that I do need to keep my face slightly covered just on the off-chance that I do get recognised, which will put other guys in danger.

    "The Gurkhas think it's hysterical how I am called the 'bullet magnet', but they've yet to see why."

    The deployment comes after the prince's planned tour to Iraq last year had to be cancelled because of a security risk.

    Speaking ahead of this tour, Harry spoke of his relief over the mission.

    He said he felt: "a bit of excitement, a bit of phew, finally, [to] get the chance to actually do the soldiering that I wanted to do ever since I joined really."

    The Prince of Wales's communications secretary, Paddy Harverson, said: "Prince Harry is very proud to serve his country on operations alongside his fellow soldiers and to do the job he has been trained for."

    right to both comments, but my whole thing is now how are they going to be able to prevent him from becoming a kidnapping victim? Taliban show no mercy, and that's all they need is something like this to help them get rid of the troops.

    they had this info months ago and agreed not to release it to protect the high target royalty. What lead to the current release ? don't know.

    the thing is, they should be thinking more of protecting the people in his troop. by releasing this info, they're putting those men & women at risk. frankly, he's one person, those fighters in afghanistan will kill a whole company just to get to him. not a good look.

    Talking

    WHO EVER THE BLOKE WAS WHO RELEASED THE INFO ABOUT PRINCE HARRY SHOULD BE DELT WITH, JUST LIKE THE PERSON WHO RELEASED THE NAME AND INFO ON THE CIA AGENT. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE PRESS HAS THE RIGHT TO RELEASE INFORMATION FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC, BUT WHEN IS INFORMATION CROSSING THE LINE, AND WHY IS IT THAT THESE PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHEN THEY SHOULD AND SHOULD NOT PUT CERTAIN INFORMATION OUT!

    GO HARRY, PROUD THAT A PRINCE GO INTO WAR! WE GOT AMERICAN PRESIDENTS RUNNING CANADA TO HIDE WHEN IT WAS THEIR TURN TO SERVE.

    He's already home

    though there was an arrangement with the media to not print or put the news out, there was a leak on the internet
