London - According to a gay soldier, Prince Harry saved his life after a group of six soldiers supposedly threatened to assault him due to his sexuality, reports E! News.

The incident took place while Harry and his squad were stationed in Canada back in 2008. Lance Corporal James Wharton, who was Prince Harry's gunner during their training exercise, chronicles the alleged incident in his new memoir, Out in the Army.

In an excerpt published by the Daily Mail, the military man recalls how he approached Harry to report the threats he allegedly received.

"I told him: 'I think I'm about to be murdered by the infantry'," Wharton recalls. "I climbed into the turret and talked Harry through exactly what had happened."

Harry took swift action

According Wharton, Harry had a complete look of bewilderment on his face and took action swiftly.

"He said: 'Right. I'm going to sort this shit out once and for all.'"

The royal reportedly smoothed out the situation. "He came back 10 minutes later and told me the problem had been sorted,'" Wharton writes.
