Harry to take fairness lessons

Prince Harry is reportedly being sent on an Army course to learn how to treat everyone fairly after he got in trouble for using a racist word.

The Prince hit the headlines after a video was published of him using the racist term to describe a Pakistani member of his Army platoon in 2006.

He apologised, but Army officials have been looking into the matter to see if he should be punished.

The Ministry of Defence told the BBC it has now finished looking at the case.

It's also being reported in a newspaper that the incident will be permanently written into Prince Harry's Army record - but that it won't harm his career.
