Andrew Neil says Prince Harry’s ‘unseemly’ claims about killing Taliban will ‘haunt him’ | Celebrity News | Showbiz & TV
The Duke writes that in the “era of Apaches and laptops”, he was able to say “with exactness” how many he had killed.
He wrote: “And it seemed to me essential not to be afraid of that number. So my number is 25. It’s not a number that fills me with satisfaction, but nor does it embarrass me.”
In episode three of the Sussexes’ Netflix series, Harry says of his military service: “Two tours in Afghanistan, flying Apache helicopters on a military base means that you grow up pretty fast.”
Harry was known as Officer Cadet Wales at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst during a 44-week training course, according to Veteran Life magazine.
After training, he received his commission as an officer in the British Army, joining the Blues and Royals.
