Princes William and Harry have been branded trigger happy soldiers who cannot wait to perform their duties as warriors in Iraq, by their good friend, aristocratic DJ, John Lycett-Green.

Lycett-Green, who is the grandson of late Poet Laureate, Sir John Betjeman, insisted that the brothers were very ‘gung-ho’.

He also revealed that he could not understand their enthusiasm because their dad, Prince Charles, is against Britain’s participation in the war.

“William and Harry are great but they're so gung-ho. Their dad is the opposite. He's wonderful and very much against the Iraq war and I agree with him. The Iraqi conflict is appalling and wrong,” the Mirror quoted him, as saying.

The 28-year-old added that Prince Charles is highly respected and concentrates on noble causes like environmentalism.

“Charles' opinions are highly respected and he lends his voice to many noble causes such as environmentalism. I just can't understand why his sons are so keen to fight in such an awful war," he said.

Prince William’s participation in the war is doubtful, for he is the second in line to the British throne.

However, Harry, who is soon to join the army in the highly criticised war, has told his friends that he is not scared to die in the battlefield.
