Prince Harry might have to go to Iraq

LONDON (AP) - Prince Harry, the third in line to the British throne, will join the armored division of the army's oldest unit and could serve in Iraq, the Ministry of Defense said Wednesday. Harry, 21, will serve in the Blues and Royals regiment of the venerable Household Cavalry, which already has been deployed to Iraq. "It's fair to say that if his squadron goes to Iraq, he will probably go with it," a ministry spokesman said on condition of anonymity in line with ministry policy. News reports said Harry hopes to lead an armored reconnaissance troop, which deploys in Scimitar vehicles and acts as the eyes and ears of the force commander. There are two divisions within the Household Cavalry: the armored division, where Harry will train, and the mounted regiment, which performs ceremonial duties, including guarding the queen on ceremonial and public occasions.
