Britain’s Prince Harry speaks with soldiers from the Estonian defence forces during “Spring Storm” military exercise in Estonia

Last week, Britain’s Prince Harry made a visit to Estonia, while a major NATO training exercise took place in the Baltic state.

The Prince, who has twice served in Afghanistan, spent time meeting the multi-national forces, near the southern Estonian town of Otepaa.

He joked with an old roommate from his time in Afghanistan, and met with President Toomas Hendrik Ilves of Estonia, BBC reports.

«The qualities the whole Estonian Army embodies are something the country can be immensely proud of», he said during the multi-national training called Spring Storm.

    Have you started to play mind games,Linda?I wasnt born to be blind and cant accept lies and dump comments.Prince Harry is a sweet boy and very brave, army needs to protect him from evil people.He loves sex, discos and toys like guns, and gives a lot of support to women with big breasts, but beauty is a matter of taste.Who wants to be a James Bond.
    In addition,Inese Veigure from Riga didnt know difference between psycho and psychic (clairvoyant)! Its not my falt that she sucks in english.
    Linda, I hope you are not Linda Løves from my Master course in health management and economics at Uio, because she was so narow-minded and cheap in thinking.Linda Løves showed up her evil side 7 years ago during my 30 years old party.Jealousy is a cancer. When jealous people start destroying other nice and intelligent people they need to be punished, but not a victim needs to be punished.
    Nato has many cases: died from friendly hand and Prince Harry must be so brave to participate in war games in Afghanistan and other countries.

  3. Nida Elena Lukosiute says:

You are not contributing to the society With Your comment, but criticizing others for their comments. Later we need to come or I need to come to give a remark to you, Linda! Leave everyone alone, you are not The God and you are not representing Democrasy! If he said too much and insulted Royals, then will be in the same situation. Why not just to Write smth. neutral about this article. Piss off, from others. Leave everyone alone with own judgements! Ask the God when you pray if she or he or the Saint Spirit likes you?! Jealousy is a cancer!

      And which Linda are you replying to …. the one below has a poor command of English. I do not … I am fluent in the languages that I am able to speak. And if you want to visit go ahead … I live in a democratic society but please ring first then I can hoover, dust and bake a gigantic cake!

      • Brian says:

        We go back to the same old thing. Some people support the murder, rape, invasion, occupation, slavery and bare face lies told by Russia.

        The question is, why do people like Mike and Nida support these things. Why do they attack people who only want Russia to stay out of free sovereign countries.

        No decent person could support the Russian government.

        Decent people support an ever increasing presence of NATO in the Baltics to send a clear message to Putin.

        • Linda says:

          Thank you and well said. I think the pair are of Russian origin or just paid slaves. And why does Nida have to threatened “we will come and sort you out” – who is the “we”, and should I copy her texts to the security forces!

  4. Nida Elena Lukosiute says:

    Why Brian supports rape, invasion and other crimes I dont know!! Psycho Brian you have just given command to rape me because you cant stand honest competition. I dont like dictators like you, that manipulate 24 hours. You have just said smth. that I will never support. You and Linda doesnt understand what is : Diplomatic Solutions!!
    As Angela Merkel on the BBC channel said when had a meeting with Barack Obama regarding Ukraina and Russia conflict: She together with other politicians looking for diplomatic solutions not war solutions!!

    Send my text to FBI and EU commitee responsible for human rights and the war solutions. Dont play KGB, because you have become russian according to what you have just published. Vilnius waitress psiche raped me and no need to enjoy that.

    I am alone without a family stop using my complicated situation.

    Even if you send smb. to rape me and what are you thinking about, you will never win!
