Prince Harry is said to be returning from a 20-week deployment in Afghanistan, reports the Associated Press via the CBC. To wrap up his campaign -- where he served as an Apache helicopter pilot -- an interview with the 28-year-old prince has been released to the public.
Of the now infamous naked pictures from this summer, CNN quotes the prince as saying: "[I] probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down... But at the end of the day I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect."
Harry went on to say he feels the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge should have been given a bit more privacy after announcing they were expecting a child. US Weekly reports the prince felt it was unfair for the pair to have made the public announcement when they weren't ready. "I literally am very very happy for them, but I hope she and him, mainly Catherine, hopefully gets the necessary protection to allow her as a mother, to be able to enjoy the privacy."
And what of his tour of duty in Afghanistan? It wasn't long ago that global terrorist Gulbuddin Hekmatyar told The Daily Telegraph the prince would, "kill innocent Afghans while he is drunk. " Hekmatyar went so far as to call Prince Harry a "jackal."
For his side of the story, the Associated Press says the prince felt "boredom, frustration and satisfaction," during the tour. The prince also, reportedly, felt relief at having the chance to be one of the "guys" instead of a Royal. In the interview, Reuters says the prince even opens up about killing Taliban fighters while in combat.
