Prince Harry Deployed to Afghanistan

Prince Harry is shown around the army base by a member of his squadron at Camp Bastion on Friday (September 7) in Helmand Province, Afghanistan.

The 27-year-old royal and Apache helicopter pilot for the squad has been redeployed to the Taliban-controlled region for four months, according to the BBC. Harry previously spent ten weeks back in the province in 2007-2008.

“He will be in a difficult and demanding job. And I ask that he be left to get on with his duties and allowed to focus on delivering support to the coalition troops on the ground,” Royal Navy Captain Jock Gordon, Commander of the Joint Aviation Group said.

10+ pictures inside of Prince Harry at Camp Bastion…

Its good to see him sacrifycing himself for his sexual behaviour. Im glad.

# 2

what are you doing there Mr. Immoral?

# 3

:( aww i hope he makes it back okay

# 4

That’s probably his punishment for those pics! Though, hope it wasn’t announced that he was going over there.. it could pose a security risk.

# 5

@anon: you do know they’re not going to send him into battle right? this is just P.R. he won’t even be close to Afghanistan.

are people really this gullible?

# 6

I had to click on this one for the comments alone.

# 7

You know, I like him better than William. He’s much more HUMAN. He makes a couple mistakes but he participates in REAL problems. Unlike William, who participates for show.

# 8

Wow! That’s a big punishment for such a small mistake. He is still young and has the right to have some fun. Be safe Prince Harry!

You are SO wrong. He does go into combat. He has in the past too. I think it’s terrible that there are photos about this. His security is in danger. Last time he was in Afghanistan, they had to bring him back when his location was exposed. Harry loves being a soldier and he was proud that he qualified as a fighter pilot in the combat helicopter. As he said himself, they spent a lot of money training him and he wants to do his part. Quit judging him. Who do you think you are to pass judgement on other people!

@shar: Don’t be ignorant, he got training and has gone to Afghanistan before… he said in the past that he planned on going back there again since money had been spent on training him and he didn’t intent on wasting it. This is not “punishment” since he didn’t do anything wrong! He’s just doing his duty like he always has. And as the person before me said the fact that there are picture’s of this is not great I hope they are more careful in the future, we all want Harry to come back safe and sound!

@SelinaMyles: lollllll hes not going into combat. if he was they wouldnt take photos of him. or allow them to be sold to the media. this is just damage control.

This may not be punishment for embarrassing the royal family, but his deployment to a war zone is probably for PR purposes, to help him rehabilitate his reputation. Whether he’ll ever be in any real danger… doubt it, but hopefully, he’ll be doing useful work.

I have a big crush on him :) Plus he’s so sexy in that uniform !

Prince Harry is soooooo HANDSOME. LOVE from the U.S

Love him!!! Hope he makes it back OK .

What an ignorant bunch of wankers on here. He does serve in the war zone, as anyone knows. What happened in vegas is hardly important – except to the UK taxpayers and his family. But they’ll get over it. Royals have been wasting taxpayers money for years. As for morality: who put you lot of judgmental nitwits up on your moral high ground? Morality is bull. I’m sure his inner moral compass is just fine thank you – its just focussed on more NB things.

No_kung_fu @ 09/07/2012 at 12:58 pm

It’s a failed attempt at good PR and people aren’t buying it. Its like look at good harry serving his country. Making eveyone so proud. Haha. Everyone will still remember vegas when you get back harry. So don’t worry.

Prince Harry was having a bit of rest and relaxation during the Olympics and his trip to Vegas because he knew he was going to Afghanistan.

@No_kung_fu:

People love him more because of Vegas. Remember he is British not American with American attitudes. He is in the military like his brother Prince William for years.

I think being deployed to Afghan will sharpen up his radar. The random picking up of whores will not happen when he returns. Also I think he can’t go with women who aren’t um…for lack of a better word..nobodies. Someone who is in his social class or is used to the spotlight that the las thing they would do is take pics on their cellphone to sell.

I wanted today that Harry should really concentrate on casting his net on fun women who are in his social class

@No_kung_fu:

Actually his deployment was on the roster BEFORE Vegas. And the Royal family wasn’t the ones that announced this. Part of the reason Harry was in Vegas was to let his hair down (which he obviously did) before this FOUR MONTH deployment.

@danielle:

Yes and before Vegas he was at Branson’s place, Necker Island for a bit of r&r with friends.

who cares @ 09/07/2012 at 3:01 pm

Red the love child has no royal bood anyway

Sure he is treated equally just like all the soldiers..don’t know why people defend those lazy royals who take thier money

mlllllllllllle @ 09/07/2012 at 3:09 pm

Oh boy…I can smell the spin doctor’s cocaine idea from Paris…

sylvatica @ 09/07/2012 at 6:05 pm

It was on the cards that he was going to Afghanistan way before his shenanigans in Las Vegas. As a qualified Apache helicopter pilot, he will be on the front line, not delivering mail.

@starsh: he will NOT be sent into a war zone idiot. if u knew anything you wouldn’t seem to stupid. im going to assume you’re 12 because everything you wrote didn’t make sense. if someone/anyone is being sent into a ‘war zone’ they would not be photographed. and he would have been prepped for months, not 5 seconds after his na*ked pics came out

@sylvatica: front line???? ahahha no effing way will he be at the front line as there is no front line. its a war zone, and ‘Afghanistan’ isn’t the problem, syria is. this is all about getting his image back.
