London, January 12 (ANI): Prince Harry, who stands accused of racism after a home video containing his Paki and raghead remarks against fellow comrades emerged, is facing probe by military officials.

The soldier prince, who is training to pilot the meanest attack machine in the British Army, was said to have invited trouble as he called Lt Ahmed Raza Khan our little Paki friend.

The royal, apparently in a light-hearted manner, told another officer, who was wearing a camouflage veil off duty, F*** me, you look like a raghead a nasty term to refer to an Arab.

It was alleged that Harry further went on to poke fun at the Queen as he enacted a mobile conversation while other cadets sat in the audience.

He had said: Granny I””””ve got to go, got to go, send my love to the corgis and Grandpa. God save you … yeah, that’’s great.”

The 24-year-old also gagged about his pubic hair with one of the squad and dubbed most of the Army exercises as pointless tasks in the 2006 video diary published in the News of the World.

Clarence House had issued a statement apologising for Harrys behaviour, adding that there is no question that he was in any way seeking to insult his friend.

Harrys foul-mouthed commentary in the three-year-old video has been condemned by top politicians and anti-racist campaigners.

Amid pressure from the Equality and Human Rights Commission, the Ministry of Defence stressed on the seriousness of the matter and pledged to investigate and seek explanation for the princes apparent use of racist language.

“The army does not tolerate inappropriate behaviour in any shape or form. The army takes all allegations of inappropriate behaviour very seriously and all substantive allegations are investigated. This specific case will be dealt with in line with normal army procedures,” the Guardian quoted an army spokesman as saying. (ANI)
