He's in military fatigues here. He wants to be taken seriously so he's been behaving himself by being seen with the child at the theatre and dinner on "dates" with others in the group. The pretense of keeping up appearances must be killing him. He looks a bit tired.

Prince Harry launches British version of US Paralympic style games for injured war heroes: 'It was such a good idea by the Americans - we nicked it'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2574648/Prince-Harry-launched-Paralympic-style-sporting-championship-injured-servicemen-women.html




don't get me wrong - this is great and it was a fine idea for Harry to work to bring these games to the UK - but he is really looking rough - his baldness is now in the front - note how he is getting that sort of V shape in the front - what a shame - and his skin is a mess - I wonder if he has rosacea which may explain that redness that is always on his cheeks?  But the close ups really show his skin is looking dry.

I think is a great cause as ive mentioned before.As for Harry being envolved and putting a lot of hard work and envolvement into it only time will show and ill wait to judge.As ive also said Harry is not what he seemed to be.So im keeping my view about him very tight.
Ill give credit where its deserved and when its deserved.
To me this is the logical next step but is nothitn mroe than a comercial, publicity about what will be done and not only by him just saying.If he will do more or less than expected only time will be able to tell.And if he truly decotes his time and work hard on it i dont see why people would take off his merit.But so far lets not call the guy a super hero for filiming a vídeo or doing whathever he does taking pics and shaking hands.Cox thats what he does.
I see it now more preciselly coz im not a fan og him as i used to be and i can clerally see thats what he alwaus did i used to think he was very envolved in such things coz i liked him and he was so extrovereted.Not anymore he changed and well something changed i just dont see that honest and genuine thing about him.
But independente on how honest or fake he seems to be if he does a good work ill say he desserves merits for it  thumbsup

Prince Harry pitches in as wounded troops compete to represent Britain at games



Wounded servicemen and women were today competing in front of Prince Harry for the chance to represent Britain at his “Olympics” for injured military personnel.

Harry, 29, was visiting a Help for Heroes rehabilitation centre as the trials began to select the 100 members of the British Armed Forces team that will compete at the Invictus Games.

They are being held in the Olympic Park and at the Lea Valley Athletics Centre from September 10 to 14 and were inspired by Harry’s visit to the Warrior Games in the US.

Harry, who has served two tours in Afghanistan, met about 25 people at Tedworth House in Wiltshire hoping to compete in the wheelchair rugby, cycling and indoor rowing events.

He said: “These men and women are fighters by nature.

“The intense physical training and competitive spirit that will be forged inside this team as they prepare to represent their country in the Invictus Games will, I hope, go some way to helping the recovery not only of those who hope to be selected here today, but also inspire others along the way.”

Marine Don Maclean, who stood on an IED whilst on patrol in Afghanistan, has put his name forward for the wheelchair basketball and cycling.

He said cycling had been “a massive part of my rehab”, adding: “As I will be leaving the Royal Marines in July, the chance to be selected for the Games would be a highpoint in my recovery.”

Another contender, Jonathan “Frenchie” Le Galloudec, was shot in the spine in Iraq in 2007.

'I haven't got the padding for it' Prince Harry ducks cycling challenge at event

PRINCE Harry , accidentally displaying his Hugo Boss underwear hanging out of his jeans, ducked a cycling challenge today after arguing his bottom was too small for the sport.


The fourth in line to the throne paid a morale boosting visit to wounded troops at a training camp for applicants hoping to win a place in the British Armed Forces team for the Invictus Games,  a Paralympic-style international competition for injured military veterans in London in September.

Harry, who came up with the idea of Britain hosting the competition after visiting the American-invented Warrior Games in Colorado last year, watched hopefuls going through their paces in three of the eight sports at Tedworth House recovery centre in Tidworth, Wiltshire.

He had a quick go on a static handbike away from most of the cameras but turned down a challenge to try out a recumbent bike used by amputee servicemen. “I haven’t got the padding for it,” he said, laughing and patting his backside.

The 29-year-old Prince, who is helping to organise the games in his role as a Captain in the Army, went to wish good luck to competitors at the training camp at Tedworth House, which is jointly run by the Help for Heroes charity and the Ministry of Defence.

Prince Harry: Join me in cheering on these inspirational men and women



Prince Harry today called on Londoners to rally behind a new international sporting championship for “inspirational” injured servicemen and women.
 


The prince has been working to bring the Invictus Games to London in September after seeing members of Britain’s Armed Forces taking part in the Warrior Games, a similar competition in the US, last year.

Today the Army officer, 29, said: “Ultimately, this is about the men and women who have given so much and deserve our support, in their recovery, rehabilitation and on leaving the armed forces.

“In September the public has the chance to show that support in the sporting arena, where the same grit and determination that characterises these tenacious men and women and their inspirational journeys of recovery — their invictus spirit — will make for a great occasion.

“I know people will want to join me in cheering them on from the sidelines.” His rallying call came as the Evening Standard announced it would give away 50 pairs of tickets to the event in an exclusive offer.

His comments were supported by an Olympic torch bearer who trekked to the North Pole with the prince and spoke of Harry’s “indescribable passion” for helping the wounded.

aw man, can we leave the critiques of how he looks to the other threads? this is a really really cool thing that's he's come up with and it's been fun watching it grow, gain more attention, and seeing him promote it with wounded soldiers

there's a lot to dig our teeth into here without having to make comments about how he does or doesn't look
