Prince Harry is going to Iraq - that’s the word from the head of the British Army.
The general said he personally decided the third-in-line to the British throne will serve with a combat unit in Iraq.
He said he hopes his decision will end what he called the somewhat frenzied media speculation.
Harry will become the first royal to serve in a war zone since 1982.
Prince Harry is due to begin his six-month tour of duty within the next few weeks.
Commanders considered not sending the prince because he could endanger other soldiers with his identity.
