    The fun's done. On Friday, Prince Harry began a four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan with the British Army. The pilot will command an Apache attack helicopter from a camp in Helmand, one of the war-torn country's most dangerous provinces. Both Prince William and Harry have served tours of duty abroad in the past, but Harry's was cut short in 2008, when an Australian magazine reported his whereabouts, compromising his and his unit's safety.

Harry’s been in the news lately after naked photos of him partying went viral—and even caused a reprimand from the military.
