Prince Harry Receives Award for Service

Prince Harry Shows His Military Medal. . .Your Favorite Prince?

This morning Prince Harry was awarded a military service medal for his 10 weeks of frontline service in Afghanistan. The 23-year-old prince served in Afghanistan with other members of his Household Cavalry Regiment. British forces have been fighting in Afghanistan for six years — but recently they're struggling to hold out against a resurgent Taliban force — according to US intelligence assessments, the Taliban force now controls at least 10 percent of the country.

Harry's job in Afghanistan included flying secret missions working as a forward air controller — he would call in air strikes to let pilots know where their targets were. Until he was outed earlier this year, Harry was the first member of the royal family to see active war service since Prince Andrew flew helicopters during the Falklands war 26 years ago.

His dad, brother, and his girlfriend Chelsy Davy attended the award service. Harry's brother William received his RAF wings recently and just last week paid a secret visit to British frontline troops.

Here's the burning (admittedly silly, yet completely necessary for a Monday morning) question: who's your favorite military prince? Are you a Team Harry, or a Team William? (Don't worry — Liberty and I have already had a protracted discussion about this — we've chosen sides, and we clearly need to know where y'all stand.)
