BRITAIN’S top soldier is being probed for allegedly romping with a junior’s wife.
Major Glenn Haughton — who trained Prince Harry — could face the sack if he is found to have breached the Army’s strict code of honour.

The married dad of two is the first to hold the new post of Senior Enlisted Advisor to the Chiefs of Staff Committee.
But he was hauled in for a grilling last week amid claims of an “inappropriate relationship” with a junior soldier’s wife.
A defence source said: “He is supposed to be the ultimate role model.
“Part of his job is to stamp out unacceptable behaviour. If these allegations are true his position is totally untenable.”
Maj Haughton, 49, who celebrated his 25th wedding anniversary this year, said in a speech in February that “people look up to us”.
He added: “The people I work and engage with know they can trust me to be there.”
He was a colour sergeant instructor at Sandhurst in 2005, when Harry was commissioned.
An Army document says he is “being investigated for an alleged breach of values and standards after allegedly becoming inappropriately involved with the wife of a junior non-commissioned officer”.
He has spoken in the past of the downsides of Army life, revealing: “On average I would only get two nights a week in my own bed, which would take its toll on my family.”
But in February he said: “I’ve reconnected with my family at a new level.”
The MoD said: “Breaches of values and standards are treated very seriously.”
