I don't care about tactical, I care about moral compass and experience. Yeah, Prince Harry is all dudded up in MOLLE gear with a pistol strapped to him while Obummer is knock-kneeing around on a bike too small for him and with a ridiculous helmet on this head... but I'd follow Harry into a fight before I'd follow Obummer because Harry knows what a fight IS, what's worth fighting for, and he is respected by the men that have served with him.
Seems like a good 10% of the US Armed Forces are tied up in court over the last 2 years, trying to say "where's the Birth Certificate? I'm not following your orders until you show me a Birth Certificate!"
As far as the Windsors... I think we're going to see a rebirth in their popularity with William and Harry. Real popularity, not "People magazine" popularity. I think they're both strong, capable leaders. Charles has been a schmuck forever and the whole "Dianna" thing always escaped my comprehension... must be a woman thing. I think the pomp and ceremony around the marriage was silly, but I also think the pomp and ceremony around a Presidential inauguration or burial is silly. Triply so for a burial.
Remember that the Crown still has titular office in the British government. They still legally have a role in government. They choose which member of Parliament leads the creation of a new government after elections, and ultimately this will end up deciding whom the Prime Minister shall be. Traditionally the Crown has simply handed this role to the most senior member of the dominant political party in Parliament with no questions asked, but they have the power to abandon that logic and hand over the various Ministries to any faction they choose.
