Thanks to Instapundit, we see this on Drudge:
PRINCE HARRY FIGHTS ON FRONTLINES IN AFGHANISTAN; 3 MONTH TOUR
Thu Feb 28 2008 11:01:34 ET
They're calling him "Harry the Hero!"
British Royal Prince Harry has been fighting in Afghanistan since late December -- and has been directly involved in gun battle, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
The prince, a junior officer in the Blues and Royals, and third in line to the throne, has been a "magnificent soldier" and an "inspiration to all of Briton."
Prince Harry is taking part in a new offensive against the Taliban.
Ministry of Defense and Clarence House refuse all comment. Army chiefs have managed to keep the prince away from media and have encourage fellow soldiers in his squadron to stay quiet.
Nicely done, Drudge.
He's been on a "3-month tour" since "late December"; for two months, in other words. And for the remaining month of his time in Afghanistan, he can look forward to being a big fat target... along with the British soldiers serving with him. (Provided the Taliban can figure out which unit he's with... except that Drudge has helped them with that, too.)
Good Lord. Can't some people keep their mouths shut?
