Harry Windsor's PR stunt

Marina Hyde in yesterdays Guardian mused that it was "nice to see Prince Harry in a British uniform, as opposed to one of Hitler's". One must admit, however, that it has been a well-managed PR stunt. Was he ever in any danger? Were his personal bodyguards with him? I imagine he was carefully coddled. But then again if he did meet a sticky end it would be tremendously good publicity for the Windsor family. Can you imagine it: the state funeral (one or other Dimbleby sycophantically droning on), heaps of flowers, the "peoples prince", etc, etc? Doesn't bear thinking about.
