It has been known that Prince Harry has been on tour in Afghanistan, but according to a new revelation by the Prince himself, he has killed for the first time.

Prince Harry said in an interview to mark the end of his four-month tour of duty as an Apache attack helicopter pilot that sometimes a soldier has to “take a life to save a life.”

When asked if he ever killed from the cockpit of the Apache helicopter, he answered very candidly.

“Yeah, so lots of people have. The squadron’s been out here. Everyone’s fired a certain amount.”

The interview had other revelations, such as his brother William being jealous about not being allowed to fly helicopters in Afghanistan.

Prince Harry is also looking forward to becoming an uncle to William and Kate’s baby, saying that he “can’t wait.”

Prince Harry also went so far as to say that playing Playstation games made him a better pilot, but he did not undermine the significance of his duty as a copilot.

“Take a life to save a life, that’s what we revolve around. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game.

“I’m not here on a free pass…our job out here is to make sure the guys are safe on the ground and if that means shooting someone who is shooting them, then we will do it.”
