A solider who has told of Prince Harry saving him from a homophobic attack whilst serving in Afghanistan, has said he plans on apologising to the Prince.
James Wharton has written a book about his experiences of being a gay man serving in the British Army, however he has received criticism for sharing private conversations he had with the young Prince.
In the book Out in the Army, Wharton wrote of personal conversations he had whilst serving with the Royal last year, including Prince Harry talking about losing his virginity. The ex-soldier has told The Times newspaper that he will be “sending over a courtesy note. I decided that I ought to say ‘sorry’ in a way, I guess.” He also said that “the four weeks I spent with the prince was the highlight. I would be doing myself down if I had pretended it didn’t happen.”
Prince Harry will be taking part in a charity trek to the South Pole in November as part of a team of British amputees in aid of injured soldiers.
