Despite his penchant for partying, Prince Harry doesnt mess around when it comes to helping out his fellow man.
And in Lance Corporal James Whartons new book Out in the Army, the Royal hunk is depicted as a fierce defender of his gay gunner.
Wharton tells of an incident back in 2008 when he was harassed for being homosexual and how Harry stood up to the bullies on his behalf.
I was on track for a battering by six soldiers. I told him, I think I”m about to be murdered by the infantry. I climbed into the turret and talked Harry through exactly what had happened. He had a complete look of bewilderment on his face. I didn”t hold back: I told him everything that had gone on. I couldn”t stop the tears from welling up in my eyes.”
And Prince Harry got to work at once to neutralize the situation. He said, Right. I”m going to sort this s–t out once and for all. Harry climbed out of the tank and started having a go. I worried he was about to make the whole thing worse, but he wasn”t holding back. Prince Harry was sticking up for me and putting a stop to the trouble. I had been on track for a battering and had been rescued.”
He came back 10 minutes later and told me the problem had been sorted. I will always be grateful to Harry, and I will never forget what happened.”
