London, November 29 (ANI): Prince Harry's dreams of returning to front-line duty in Afghanistan have been smashed over security concerns.

The Royal, who is training to pilot the meanest attack machine in the British Army, the Apache, served ten weeks in the 2007 Afghan War but was pulled out after his presence there was revealed by the media.

And now, Army top brass fear Taliban infiltration of the Afghan police force may blow the lid on the prince's presence and put him and his comrades in danger.

"Getting Harry back on the front line is certainly not a priority right now," News of the World quoted a military source as saying.

"The situation there is extremely volatile and an operation involving the third in line to the throne would require a lot of planning and secrecy," the source added.

Another high-ranking Whitehall source said: "The negatives of his redeployment far outway the positives. It is not on the agenda." (ANI)
