“Support Prince Harry with a Naked Salute,” a Facebook group with more than 12,000 members to date, has seen hundreds of male and female soldiers uploading photos with their “grenades” carefully obscured by everything from sugar tins to the British flag. The page has proven so popular, administrators have opened it up to anyone who wants to show support for Harry.
“I started the group after my mate, who is about to deploy, sent me a picture of himself saluting naked as a joke after hearing about Prince Harry,” said page founder Jordan Wylie, 29. “What started as a jokey conversation in the pub has turned into a huge worldwide thing with people from all kinds of countries getting involved. Thousands of members of the military and ex-military are involved, sending us pictures from Afghanistan and everything. Even my dad who was in the Royal Marines is on there, and there’s also a 75-year-old man who is posing with his medals.” Wylie said members support the Crown Prince because he’s “just one of the lads.”
With more revealing pictures of the carrot-top royal rumored to be surfacing, expect more patriotic Brits to put their privates on parade. Careful with those guns, lads!
