Well, I guess someone has to serve

2nd Lt. Harry Wales

Harry graduates as Army officer

Prince Harry has graduated from Sandhurst as an Army officer, where his passing out parade was inspected by his grandmother - the Queen.

The Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Charles and Camilla and Harry's brother William were also at the ceremony.

The 21-year-old, who last week joined Army pals at a lap dancing club near Slough, is to join the Household Cavalry's Blues and Royals.

Clarence House has released a series of photographs to mark his graduation.

The prince marched in the military college's Sovereign's Parade with 219 officer cadets.

The Queen stopped to have a few words with her grandson during the parade, after which he broke out in a broad grin.

Front line

He becomes a 2nd Lieutenant, his rank is referred to as a Cornet and he will serve in an armoured reconnaissance unit.

He will train to become a troop commander, in charge of 11 men and four light tanks, and could serve in a conflict zone.

Senior officer Maj Gen Sebastian Roberts said it was "eminently possible" the young royal could find himself serving in Iraq or Afghanistan.

And in other news, the Bush girls are found drunk again in another DC-area nightclub with their friends
