A Royal who's true Blue
With props to The Armorer - and a stern look to CaptH, who continues to tip disproportionately south - we learn that Prince Harry will deploy next year as a troop commander with the Blues and Royals to Iraq.
After all the scandals and disappointments the Windsors have given us over the past decade or two, this is heartening:
"There's no way I'm going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my arse back home while my boys are out fighting for their country," [Prince Harry] has said.
Service. It's key to true leadership, and I'm glad to hear that Harry has adopted the ethos as his own.
