Prince Harry will speak to family on Christmas on Skype

PRINCE Harry will get to see his family on Christmas Day, by appearing over a video link.

The third in line to the British throne is currently serving as an Apache helicopter pilot in Afghanistan and won't be home until the new year, but it is being organised for him to talk to his family on December 25 by a special Skype video link up.

The video will reportedly be beamed directly into the billiards room at Sandringham, Eastern England, where the royal family spend Christmas, and was set up by his brother, Prince William.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "The family are very anxious for Harry. It was William who came up with the idea so Harry could exchange greetings.

"He is putting his life on the line, like all servicemen out there, and the family share the same anxieties as everyone with a loved one in Afghanistan."

The call will reportedly only last a few minutes, giving Harry, 28, time to say hello to William, his wife Duchess Catherine, father Prince Charles and his wife the Duchess of Cornwall, as well as his grandparents Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh.

Harry is currently on a second tour of duty, and also missed Christmas day on his first, when he was deployed to Afghanistan in 2007.
