For some reason, out of both Princes, I've always watched Harry. The wild child of the palace. Funny how William is the refined, dignified heir to the throne and Harry is ... well, he just isnt. :) And I always find myself cheering for him. It has to be so hard to go through the life both of them have led in the public eye, always being scrutinized for every step they take. I like reading People magazine on line and there was another story of Harry :). I think it is so cool that he has embraced something structured and not getting himself into as much trouble as he did when he was younger. But it is really something that he is taking it as far as he can. I think his mum would be so proud of him, well, both of them.
It's really something that he is going to go into training to fly the Apache and such. While William takes the milder (and no less heroic) rescue missions, I find it fitting to Harry that he is taking the same path, just in a different direction. He is going to kick ass, while William rescues some. :)
What does this have to do with writing? Everything. It shows that despite their priviliged life style, they are just like the rest of us. They get down and rut in the dirt, just like the rest of us do and I think it is impressive. It is also inspiring the humanitarian work both of these men do as well. I find that it is very romance novel inspiring. Can you see it? A prince that has served his time in the military and leads a double life? Of course for my taste I would have to involve a dragon or two, maybe some Hoards... But it's all good! :)
