Prince Harry's dishonored former comrade and wedding escort revealed the last time he saw the royal before the big day they both & # 39; were in holes & # 39; lived in Afghanistan.
Corporal Frankie O & Leary, former radio operator of the royal family, led the Household Calvary while their former colleague accompanied the duke of Sussex (34) and his new wife Meghan (37) via Windsor on their wedding day.
Cpl O & # 39; Leary, 32, of the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment based in London's Hyde Park Barracks, made headlines last month for a very different reason when it was revealed that he had to be expelled from the army after failing was for a drug test.
In the ITV documentary Her Majesty & Cavalry last night, in an interview that was thought to have been filmed before the scandal broke, Cpl O & # 39; Leary spoke about the last time he saw Harry for the wedding she was at touring.

& # 39; The last time we (Prince Harry and myself) worked in Afghanistan, he was 10 weeks without a shower, beards, living in holes in the ground, & # 39; said Cpl O & # 39; Leary.
& # 39; Next time he is dressed the way he is, a prince of the realm with a viewer of a woman. And I was dressed like a knight on a horse's back. & # 39;
He added: & # 39; It looked like two sides of a coin, it was pretty angry. & # 39;
The Household Cavalry was in the spotlight on the big day, because Harry personally asked his former comrades to accompany him and Meghan as they drove through Windsor.
The documentary showed Cpl O & # 39; Leary as he helped his men prepare for their controversial role by shaving the horses to look smooth and take care of their tails.

A friend of Cpl O & # 39; Leary told the Mail: & # 39; He knows he made a big mistake and it cost him the job he loved.
& # 39; He just feels like he has abandoned his family, friends and the regiment. & # 39;

A source from the army said: & This has cost him his entire career, it is quite a heavy fine. There are not many jobs where you would be fired for using recreational drugs. & # 39;
It is clear that Prince Harry and Cpl O & # 39; Leary have not spoken since the wedding and were not good friends.
A source said: & # 39; The soldier has not been in contact with the prince for a long time. & # 39;
The MoD confirmed that four soldiers who served in the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment did not meet a mandatory drug test.
An army spokesman said: “The army has a zero tolerance drug policy and does not tolerate abuse of drugs in any form or at any time. The staff who are caught taking drugs is fired. & # 39;
