PRESS RELEASE:

Prince Harry 'Dead' in Iraq War Memorial - The 'Brave At Heart' Honored with Royal Tribute in London

| From

LONDON, England - Sept. 26 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- A war-mutilated Prince Harry is the symbolic fallen hero in a memorial honoring those willing but unable to serve in the occupied Iraq conflict. Harry, the youthful brother to Britain's future king, was poised to be the most celebrated soldier of the Coalition forces, but due to the "specific threats to kill or kidnap him," he was kept home. However, Prince Harry will be remembered for his intended tour of duty in a memorial to be unveiled at the Trafalgar Hotel October 11th courtesy of Bridge Art Fair.

"Iraq War Memorial featuring the Death of Prince Harry, the Martyr of Maysan Province" draws inspiration from Harry's willingness to sacrifice for his country, and the sympathy for his disappointment of an unfulfilled patriotic aspiration.

"This war memorial is dedicated to the brave at heart," said spokesman David Kesting. "But the brave men and women Prince Harry inspired to enlist for combat following his announcement to serve a six-month tour in an Iraq combat zone are not forgotten."

The Memorial features Prince Harry laid out before the Union Jack with pennies placed over his eyes and head rested on the Bible. The statue suggests the tragic outcome of a confrontation in Iraq's Maysan Province with the Iranian weapons smugglers for whom Harry's tank regiment was scheduled to patrol. Prone with his unfired gun still holstered, Prince Harry is represented clutching a bloodied flag of Wales, and holding to his heart a cameo locket of his late mother, Princess Diana, while a desert vulture perches on his boot.

Harry's head is earless, denoting the explicit threats against the Prince from militia leaders saying they planned to send him back to his grandmother "without his ears."

A bronze casting of Prince Harry's "severed ears" also set for display at the Trafalgar Hotel tribute will be offered on eBay.

Harry had stated he would leave the army if he was left in safety while his regiment was sent to a war zone. "Prince Harry's spirit must have died the day they told him he couldn't serve," speculates New York artist Daniel Edwards. "That's what this memorial is about."

Like Paris's Victor Noir Memorial, security for the Prince Harry Memorial will guard against vandalism from expected throngs of admirers believing luck in love and fertility may come by kissing the lips of the memorial to England's reputed playboy "pinup prince."

The "Death of Prince Harry" follows the recent tenth anniversary remembrance Harry organized for his mother, who died tragically in Paris. On Princess Diana's coffin was a card from Harry, made out to Mummy. Visitors are welcome to place cards and flowers for Harry at the memorial or e-mail their condolences to www.PrinceHarryMemorial.com.
