Gay Soldier Says Prince Harry Saved Him From a Beating
Posted on Jun 10, 2013
It’s nice to know the ginger prince, who is better known for playing strip poker and wearing a Nazi uniform to a costume party, is capable of genuine nobility.
After hearing that his gunner, an out-of-the-closet soldier in Her Majesty’s Armed Forces, was facing a “battering” during a training exercise in Canada in 2008, Harry reportedly went over to the half-dozen bullies and told them to “back the fuck off.”
The Daily Mail:
‘I told him, “I think I’m going 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 couldn’t stop the tears from welling up in my eyes. He said, “Right I’m going to sort this s*** out once and for all.”
[Later] Harry, a Troop Commander in the Blues and Royals, confronted the tormentors, warning them they would face severe discipline if they continued their violent threats.
‘I could see he wasn’t holding back,’ said Wharton, who was 21 at the time.
