A soldier in Prince Harry’s old regiment has been found hanged in his barracks.

Friends say Lance Corporal Joel Robinson, 24, was “one in a million”.

His guardian Dee Lockhart, 55, said yesterday: “Everyone is mystified by his death.

“He had been out drinking with friends and we know a high percentage of suicides by young men are when drunk…

“But we had no inkling of any problems with Joel.

“He was the last person you would expect to do something like this.

“One of his friends described him as ‘like a holiday rep in combats’, and that was bang on.”

L Cpl Robinson, who joined Dee’s family in Walton, Cumbria, aged 15, served with the Household Cavalry Mounted Regiment.

He was found in the common room at Combermere Barracks in Windsor, Berks.

Opening an inquest this week, the coroner said the cause of death has been given as asphyxia due to hanging.

The Household Cavalry confirmed a soldier died while on duty in March.

Harry also served with the Household Cavalry.
