Prince Harry has arrived home from his 20-week frontline tour of duty in Afghanistan.
The 28-year-old, who returned to England on a regular personnel flight, said it was great to be back and revealed that he was longing to see his loved ones and congratulate Prince William and Catherine on their baby news in person.
Admitting he had “let myself and my family down” with his drunken antics in Las Vegas just weeks before his deployment, Harry described the tour as a “hell of an experience” and said he enjoyed being plain old “Captain Wales” rather than a royal heir.
“We are supporting the Afghan people, supporting the Afghan army. The way that things are going are fantastic - I suppose that sounds a typical MoD/Army answer, but it’s true,” he told The Sun.
