Prince Harry 'Saved Soldier From Homophobic Attack'
Royal stepped in when gay trooper was threatened by squaddies...
A gay soldier has told how Prince Harryrescued him from a beating by a group of squaddies.
Trooper James Wharton reveals in his book, Out In The Army, that he was confronted by a gang of six soldiers from a rival regiment who were threatening to "batter" him while on a training exercise in Canada in 2008.
He tells how he escaped and found Harry, his tank commander in the Blues and Royals.
"I told him, 'I think I'm going to be murdered by the infantry'. I couldn't stop the tears. He said, 'Right, I'm going to sort this s*** out'."
The 28-year-old prince then apparently warned the soldiers to "back the f*** off", telling them they'd face disciplinary action otherwise.
Wharton has now left the forces.
