The trusted inner circle who are rallying round Prince Harry

Thomas van Straubenzee

Harry came to Thomas van Straubenzee's aid when he was robbed of his mobile last year. The Prince was on the phone to his close friend when the incident took place.

The pair met at Ludgrove prep school and have been firm friends ever since.

Both Harry and his brother are patrons of a memorial fund launched in tribute Henry, Thomas' brother, who died in a car accident in 2002.
