Just when we thought we couldn't possibly love Prince Harry any more, the Daily Mail reports that the sexy royal intervened to save a fellow soldier from a homophobic attack during an army training exercise in 2008.
The story comes from Out In The Army, a forthcoming book written by Lance Corporal James Wharton. He writes:
Standing in front of me were six extremely angry infantry sergeants. 'Have you been spreading rumours about our Martin?' I was asked.
I didn't even know his name.
'Why have you been lying? He's no faggot!'
This was turning into a bit of a situation. Danny told them everything he'd seen and to back off. Under huge pressure I went back to my vehicle to find Prince Harry.
'Sir, I need to talk to you.'
'Why? What's up? Are you OK?'
Harry instantly looked concerned. I told him: 'I think I'm about to be murdered by the infantry.'
I climbed into the turret and talked Harry through exactly what had happened. He had a complete look of bewilderment on his face.
I didn't hold back: I told him everything that had gone on. I couldn't stop the tears from welling up in my eyes.
He said: 'Right. I'm going to sort this s*** out once and for all.'
Harry climbed out of the tank and started having a go. I worried he was about to make the whole thing worse, but he wasn't holding back. Prince Harry was sticking up for me and putting a stop to the trouble. I had been on track for a battering and had been rescued.
He came back ten minutes later and told me the problem had been 'sorted'.
He told me: 'I knew one of his officers and we cleared everything up. I also told those other lads to back the f*** off, too.'
Well done, Your Royal Highness.
