As you were, soldier.
Prince Harry received his first army campaign medal as his regiment was decorated for its service in Afghanistan in a ceremony here Monday.
Harry, 23, third in line to the throne, was among 170 members of the Household Cavalry decorated by his aunt Princess Anne in her capacity as colonel of the Blues and Royals regiment, to which the prince also belongs.
Harry's girlfriend Chelsy Davy, brother Prince William and father Prince Charles watched the ceremony at Combermere Barracks in Windsor, west of London.
Known as Lieutenant Wales in the army, Harry served at Garmsir and Musa Qala in the southern province of Helmand during a four-month tour which for him ended in February after 10 weeks when a news blackout was broken.
