Prince Harry has made quite a few headlines recently due to his candid discussion of the media.  Those comments were made while Harry was serving in Afghanistan, but were embargoed until last week.  But along with the interview content, a number of photos from his time overseas were released as well, showing Harry at work in his Apache and loafing around the base during his down time.  Check out the warrior prince after the break:At Work:
