He may be a prat at times, but he's apparently no coward. Prince Harry will likely be serving in Iraq next year. Of course he does have a family example to follow. His uncle Prince Andrew saw combat as a Royal Navy helicopter pilot off of HMS Invincble during the Falklands War, including flying as an Exocet missile decoy. Harry's father Prince Charles also served in the Royal Navy in the 1970s, and his grandfather Prince Phillip saw action during WW2 with the Royal Navy.
