Lance-Cpl. James Wharton, author of the memoir Out In The Army: My Life as a Gay Soldier, told this weekend how Prince Harry prevented six members of another regiment from attacking him after he boasted about a sexual encounter with another soldier.

When the regiment members came to confront Wharton about spreading rumours, Prince Harry climbed out of a tank and defused the situation.
