The Man Who Would be King
From The Current on Prince Harry's post-Afghanistan future:
...Perhaps the real trouble is that men of royal blood, by their nature, need new lands to conquer. Why not give Prince Harry a crack contingent of Gurkha fighting men and set him loose on some war-ravaged region, where he can establish his own princely state as a latter-day white rajah? Consider Canada, a nation torn by ethnic strife and religious hatred, where daily life has become a miserable struggle to survive amidst endless gun battles waged by rival gangs of crazed ice-dancing rebels and the soaring loonie has sent the economy into a tailspin. Only Prince Harry can restore order, and so he must.
It's tough to be the "spare" so this is probably Prince Harry's best move. Unless one of the Exurban boys want the job, I would be more than happy to volunteer for the role of Peachy on this expedition.
