The Army Bottles it

This is something of a shame, the idea that Prince Harry will not be following his unit to Iraq. That's pretty much the end of his Army career then:

Prince Harry will not be posted to Iraq because the country has become too dangerous, the head of the Army announced yesterday.

Not all that sure I understand the thinking. Historically, that was in fact the function of royalty, especially Princes and even more so the spare to the heir. I think this is a dreadful mistake.
