According to a former British commander, Prince Harry’s remarks about killing Taliban fighters in Afghanistan have harmed his reputation.
The Duke of Sussex describes his 25 kills as “chess pieces taken off the board” in his memoir.
Ex-army officer colonel Richard Kemp told the BBC Harry’s comments were “ill-judged”.
He added that the remarks could have jeopardized his security and incite retaliation.
In his memoir Spare, Prince Harry discusses his time as a helicopter pilot in Afghanistan.
In it, he reveals for the first time that he killed 25 enemy fighters, which is entirely possible after two tours in the country’s Helmand region.
