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.)

Team Harry. He's the cuter of the two and has the more interesting (cheeky!) personality, in my opinion.

Harry FTW! He doesn't have the telltale male pattern baldness, he's a ginger, and he's a bit of a cheeky one, which is good because i know the queen would loathe me.

Prince Harry is more my type; although both brothers are handsome men.

Definitely Prince William, he seems much more sensible. Prince Harry would be great to have around for holidays and such, though!

I say we Helicopter drop Hagee into the Taliban camp with a made in the U.S.A. collapsible bully pulpit and let him channel the wrath of God up the Talibanites.

Definitely Prince William! Had a huge crush on him when I was like 12 :) I seriously thought we'd meet and get married some day :ROTFL:

I don't care about the Princes. I care about this: The Taliban force now controls at least 10 percent of the country. Um, Hello!! This group is a huge threat to US security, and we have let them multiply like Gremlins over in Afghanistan and Pakistan! Time for a change in strategy!

I'm not a royal’s fan watcher but I have seen documentaries on both princes and I genuinely admire both of them equally. They have had a well rounded education. They are quite humble despite their positions and they both engender many of the qualities that made their mother the people’s princess.

I definitely prefer Harry. I think he's better looking and he definitely seems more fun!

Harry! He seems like he actually has a personality. William seems like a robot to me.

William is going to be a fugly old man you can just tell dad's genes will work on that poor boy, Harry on the other hand is very sexy, he seems just a wee bit more human than William, form going to Afghanistan to the orphanage he supports in Lesotho and the fact that he's dating a Zimbabwean is the icing on the cake for me.

Although he's going to be bald soon, which I find sexy.

William for two reasons: 1. I think he's better looking. 2. Who wouldn't want to be Queen one day? (Secretly: I think William is the only legitimate child ... shhhhh.)
