Harry The Prince Of Operations

Some training footage:

Spongebob-Squarepants-Operator-Rifle-AR-15I don’t really follow what’s going on with the royal family, but from what I see pop up on the internet occasionally; Prince Harry seems like a solid dude with a very laid back personality.  As royalty, his entire life could be spent doing basically nothing, or whatever he wanted… the fact he chooses to dedicate at least some of his time to getting dirty in the Armed Forces is really awesome.  He was an Apache pilot in Afghanistan even.

  1. Not to mention the fact that he likes to party… Remember those compromising pics of him with the hotties in vegas? Id operate with him. Seems like a fun dude.

      So, Bilzarian is actually a Prince Harry wannabe… :)

  2. England would be a great place if retarded Charles and goofy William abdicated the thrown and let Harry take over.

    He seems like a pretty awesome person. Though trying to read about his military career has left me highly confused at the structure of the British military.

      I think he basically gets to go where and do what he wants.

      That said, could you imagine how unimaginably fucked some little podunk village would be if they shot the prince?

  4. It’s the old joke, “an heir and a spare.”
    Nobility needs to insure the continuance of their bloodline to maintain power. So, while “Billy the Fish” (Prince William), was off making sure he lived long enough to keep the Queen on life support until that ignoble cunt Prince Charles could snuff it, Harry got to have some fun.

    Yeah, that voice confirming you were “cleared hot,” to fire on grid co-ordinates was Prince Harry.

    If I were in his shoes, I’d probably do the same thing. What else is he going to do with himself? He doesn’t need to work, so why not go on some global adventures and fly helicopters and shit. There’s plenty of time for croquet and polo when you’re old, may as well take the badass route while you are still young. Plus it makes him look super respectable, which he needs after his little nazi uniform stunt before he joined the military.

    Propaganda at its finest, gentlemen. A little less crass than Vladimir doing everything shirtless, and Kim Jun Un photo ops at factories, but propaganda nonetheless. Oh, you’re a special snowflake because of who your parents are? Get the eff out of here with that nonsense. It’s a good thing we got rid of “royalty” during the enlightenment. I seriously doubt human beings will ever be smart enough to get rid of the last long con left in town; the omnipotent state.

      Unfortunately what family you are born in will always matter. Power is often inherited.

      Uh…you DO know he was in fact flying combat missions in OEF as an Apache pilot right? And before that he was a platoon commander in some desolate AO in Afghanistan and was only removed from the area after the press found out where he was at and basically gave up every piece of OpSec possible on his whereabouts and location of his patrol base.

    Something tells me he’d likely do all of that even if he weren’t royalty.

    I don’t think it is propaganda. Some people of standing actually do give a shit once in a while.

    He’s barely 30 and has more military experience than our sitting president so….respect.

      I get the same impression that hes doing it on his own, and great point about comparing exp haha

      I remember first hearing about him being in the Brit army when the Camp Bastion attack happened.

      Seriously, he hardly deserves the scorn that people are giving him for no reason… and I think the whole royal family thing is a gimmick kept alive for tourism because the UK ain’t got much more going for it.

      Just to be pedantic, apart from President George H Bush, Prince Charles has more military (and combat experience) than the last 6 Presidents. Let’s not pretend that any other President after Ford had impressive military careers. Please.

    Its a fairly long standing tradition in British nobility. The eldest son who was most likely to inherit the family fortune got to do the high brow stuff, the younger son usually went into either the clergy or the military.

      Actually, IIRC, regarding the “family fortune” to be inherited, Prince Harry is set to inherit the lion’s share. So, while someday Prince William will get the crown, Harry will get the money–or at least a larger share than William.

    :57 Prince Harry doesn’t worry about corners… only peasants worry about corners. The guy seems pretty damn down to earth compared to how he could have turned out. Kudos!

  10. This footage is all of his exchange with the Australian armed forces. The work he has done in the British Army is just as good, he has served in the infantary and as an Apache pilot in the Army Air Corp.
    And to those slagging of Prince William, he was a pilot in the Royal Air Force, flying Sea King Air/Sea Rescue Helicopters saving lives. He now works as an Air Ambulance Pilot, still saving lives.
    And to those of you slagging off Britain as a whole, it’s your opinion, but mine is that I’d much rather live here than in America.

    Also remember there are thousands of jihadists would would love to be one who killed Prince Harry. So unlike normal people he has a high chance of dying by assassination, so all those military skills he has will come in handy in real life.

  12. Actually this fella is not a pilot. His brother and heir apparent to the throne William is the chopper pilot. Harry is the weapons system operator on the Apache… Which actually makes him even cooler. He’s a killer…
