Army chiefs are continuing to review Prince Harry's role during his deployment to Iraq, the Ministry of Defence said. The MoD said the Prince's deployment was under "constant consideration", as the Sun reported that the Army had launched an 11th-hour review into the decision to let the 22-year-old officer serve alongside his men. The Sun newspaper said senior military figures were increasingly concerned about the Prince's presence on the battlefield amid reports that insurgents would be targeting him. An MoD spokeswoman said on Thursday: "Prince Harry's deployment to Iraq is, as we've always said, under constant consideration. It is still our intent that Prince Harry will deploy as a troop leader." Clarence House would not comment. Clarence House and the Ministry of Defence confirmed in February that Harry would be deployed to Iraq, saying he would take on a "normal troop commander's role" rather than a desk job. As a career soldier, Harry has always been determined to see action on the front line and fight for his country. In an interview to mark his 21st birthday, he said: "There's no way I'm going to put myself through Sandhurst and then sit on my a*** back home while my boys are out fighting for their country." A joint statement from Clarence House and the MoD in February said: "Whilst in Iraq, Cornet Wales will carry out a normal troop commander's role, involving leading a troop of 12 men in four Scimitar armoured reconnaissance vehicles, each with a crew of three." The deployment will make Harry, the third in line to the throne, the first royal to be deployed on a tour of duty in a war zone for a quarter of a century. Should Harry serve in Iraq?
