Prince Harry gets medal for service

From Times Wire Reports

A grinning and blushing Prince Harry was given a medal for his service in Afghanistan by his aunt, Princess Anne.

The red-haired royal struggled to contain a smile as the princess pinned the Operational Service Medal for Afghanistan to his desert fatigues in a ceremony at the Combermere Barracks in Windsor, west of London.

Harry, 23, was among 170 members of his unit, the Household Cavalry Regiment, who were decorated for their service in Afghanistan as friends and family looked on.

The prince's deployment there was cut short earlier this year after news of his mission became public. He served a 10-week tour of duty.
