Prince Harry Saved Soldier From Homophobic Attack

Screen Shot 2013-06-09 at 10.36.15 AMBritish soldier James Wharton recently told The Daily Mail that Prince Harry came to his rescue when he was the target of a gay hate attack.

According to Wharton, six soldiers threaten to beat him up during a training exercise in Canada in September of 2008. Luckily, Wharton was able to run away before being attacked. When he encountered the Prince and told him of the incident, his tank commander stepped in.

“Right I’m going to sort this s*** out once and for all,” Harry told Wharton. The Prince confronted the gang and warned them of discipline if they continued to threaten their fellow soldier. After reporting the incident to senior command, he assured Wharton the matter had been sorted.

Since the story has come out, Prince Harry has received praise from higher ups that consider him a shining example in the forces.

The story comes from Wharton’s new book, Out In The Army, which recounts his life as a gay soldier. Wharton tells of more stories with Harry and the ups and downs of being in the military. (Read the full account here.)

      Great to hear. Curious about the result of reporting the incident to the higher ups.

      Prince Harry seems to have his heart on the right place. A great ally! And super hot too.

      Sorry, typo: it’s “heart in” and not “heart on” :-)

      I guess this makes up for Harry’s Nazi-dress up bit, but with the royals, I guess you take what you can get.
