A British newspaper reported Sunday that Prince Harry was scheduled to begin final training for deployment to Iraq with his Army regiment - but the defense ministry said no decision had been made on whether his regiment would be deployed. The News of The World said the prince, who is third in line to the throne, would take part in a two-day pre-deployment course, which includes instruction in basic Arabic phrases. Harry, known as Cornet Wales by his regiment - the Blues and Royals - has trained to command 11 soldiers and four Scimitar tanks. A defense ministry spokesman said the Blues and Royals were among a number of regiments being considered for deployment to Iraq in April.
