Prince Charles welcomed Harry home from Afghanistan today, telling the media he was “enormously proud” of his son. “It’s obviously a great relief to see him home in one piece,” he said, adding that he now understood what service families endure. But he also was frustrated at Harry’s early return. “He had been looking forward to coming back with his regiment.”
It was tough, Charles said, to keep Harry’s service a secret. “People kept saying to me, ‘You must be so frustrated about Harry not being able to serve abroad.’” Harry arrived to no official fanfare at a Royal Air Force base in central England this morning, where he was met by his father and brother, Prince Williams, the Telegraph reports. He served 10 weeks before the Drudge Report blew his cover.
