#1 The Talibunnies are not 'appy, not 'appy at all.
'This isn't a game': Taliban labels Harry a 'coward' for comparing Afghan conflict with computer games after he reveals he has killed enemy
Prince Harry has been accused of handing the Taliban a ‘propaganda victory’ after admitting he had killed insurgents on deployment in Afghanistan.

The third-in-line-to-the-throne was also accused of being ‘arrogant and insensitive’, particularly over unguarded comments that he had honed his skills as an Apache attack helicopter gunner on his gaming machines.

The prince also drew criticism for his unusual admission that he had been personally responsible for the deaths of Taliban fighters as a helicopter pilot and gunner.

The shadow defence secretary suggested that Harry had been overly 'candid' in discussing his role in the fighting - and experts warned he had made himself 'a prime target'.

#2 The red-haired prince is, unlike Charles, not risk averse.

And his unit all get credit from him. Good.
