Prince Harry faces formal Army discipline over Paki row

February 12th, 2009 - 2:41 pm ICT by ANI  

London, February 12 (ANI): Prince Harry has been formally disciplined by enraged Army chiefs for his infamous Paki remark directed at a fellow Asian cadet.

The soldier prince had been accused of racism after calling Captain Ahmed Raza Khan our little Paki friend in a three-year-old home video.

The 24-year-old has been ordered to undergo tough sessions of an equality and diversity course in a bid to make him realise just how much offence and damage had been caused by his foul-mouthed comments.

According to a military source, the royals remarks would also be penned permanently into his Army record, reports the Mirror.

Clarence House added: Prince Harry has said sorry for his remarks and has been subjected to normal Army disciplinary procedures. The matter is now closed.

A Ministry of Defence spokesman also said: The Army has concluded its considerations in relation to this case.

The development comes just after Harry was alleged to have landed himself in a new race gaffe after telling a comedian he did not sound like a black chap.

Harry had also evoked much criticism in 2005 after sporting a Nazi uniform at a costume party, for which he apologised later. (ANI)
