Newspapers deny fawning over Harry

Newspaper editors have rejected suggestions that the coverage of Prince Harry's daring desert escapades has been nothing more than grovelling PR for the Royal Family. The soldier prince's war came to an abrupt end after he was dramatically pulled out of Afghanistan when his cover was blown, but papers deny that their coverage has been overly fawning. "Prince Harry is an ordinary soldier who is prepared to die for the country he doesn't much like," says News of the World editor Colin Myler, who claims the coverage has been balanced. "For security reasons for instance we have agreed not to report on Harry's one man mission during which he single-handedly rescued hundreds of prisoners of war from captivity before heroically commandeering a tank and colliding it into a helicopter killing the enemy commander."
