Prince Harry will be sent to Iraq, Britain's Ministry of Defense said Thursday. He will join his regiment, the Blues and Royals, in Iraq as part of a long-planned rotation of troops. He will become the first royal to see combat since his uncle, Prince Andrew, served in the Falklands war against Argentina in 1982. The Defense Ministry has said he might be kept out of situations where his presence could jeopardize his comrades.
