Prince Harry In The Army: Childhood Pictures Showed Dream To Be Soldier (PICTURES)

Posted: Updated:

Prince Harry never wanted to be a superman, ninja or power ranger.

For a young prince who craved normality, he always favoured a more practical kind of heroism - as these pictures taken of Harry as a child show.

The two pictures show how Harry's running style hasn't changed

The adorable pictures of Harry as a youngster show him in an oversized helmet and clad in dark green.

Another shows him in a strikingly similar pose as pictures taken just weeks ago in Camp Bastion, running towards a light tank.

The pictures were taken during a visit to the barracks of the Light Dragoons in Hanover, Germany, in 1993, when the prince was just eight years old.
