The trouble with Prince Harry
(radarmagazine.com) - Radar's September cover story, an insider account of the turbulent life of England's 22-year-old pin-up prince, reveals the details of Harry's rowdy lifestyle and his military career. As a second lieutenant in Britain's elite Blues and Royals unit, the prince was so desperate to join his regiment in Iraq that he threatened to quit the military if he wasn't allowed to serve. When it was revealed that Al Qaeda had put a $500,000 bounty on his head, he even drew up a will dispersing his multi-million-dollar estate. But days before Harry was to ship out to Iraq, Sir Richard Dannatt, who heads up the British Army, personally phoned the prince to inform him that his six-month deployment had been canceled. On the night his regiment flew to Iraq, a dejected Harry partied at the Syndicate, a Bristol club renowned for its Ecstasy-fueled fetes. In the following excerpt, Radar examines Harry's party-boy antics.
