Prince Harry Attends Bryan Adams’ “Wounded: The Legacy of War”
| November 12th, 2014
This week Britain’s Prince Harry viewed an exhibition of photographs taken by Bryan Adams which depicts soldiers who have been injured while on military duty in Afghanistan and Iraq. ‘Wounded: The Legacy of War’ is on exhibition at Somerset House in London.
The story of how each soldier was wounded is featured in an accompanying book by the same title (Steidl). The book, says Adams, who has moonlighted as an award-winning photographer for a decade now, “gives an insight into the horrific things that happen when we take arms against each other.”

In other Remembrance commemorations, His Royal Highness visited Kandahar, Afghanistan. Prince Harry – who fought in Afghanistan from 2007 to 2008 and 2012 to 2013 – attended a ceremony with former troops where he laid down a wreath of poppies with a heartfelt handwritten note.
It read: “There is no greater love then to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. They will never be forgotten. Harry.”
Prince Harry has always been a strong advocate for supporting soldiers. In 2013, the 30-year-old royal took part in a fundraising event in aid of Walking With The Wounded, which involved hiking to the most southern point of the world. Prince Harry was joined on the expedition by 12 injured servicemen and women, as well as ‘The Wire’ actor Dominic West.
