And Prince Harry couldn’t do otherwise but send a letter to the bereaved parents of the man he served with. He wrote:

Dear Mr and Mrs Hunt,

I wanted to write and say how deeply saddened I was to hear the news last week that Nathan had passed away. Nathan and I served together in Afghanistan when he was attached to the Household Cavalry Regiment in 2007/2008.

I remember our time serving together on that tour with fond memories. Not only was Nathan a highly professional soldier, respected by all those who worked with him, but he also had a keen sense of humour. The work we were engaged in was made easier and safer thanks to the difficult and challenging work Nathan overtook. It was also more enjoyable thanks to his particular take on the world.

It is so cruel to have a family member taken from you at such an early age. Please know that you both and Megan are in my thoughts and my deepest sympathies are with you at this most difficult of times.
