The Duke of Sussex, who was known as ‘Captain Wales’ in the military, wrote that he did not think of those killed ‘as people’ but instead ‘chess pieces’ he had taken off the board. 

Harry, who during his second tour flew an Apache attack helicopter, said it was ‘not a fact that filled me with satisfaction, but I was not ashamed either’. 

This is the first time that Harry, 38, has spoken about the number of insurgents he personally killed during his time in Afghanistan, where he went in both 2007-8 and 2012.
