In a revealing interview with the British press, Prince Harry spoke yesterday of his stint in Afghanistan as one of the happiest times of his life, and said he "generally" doesn't "like England that much." The third-in-line to the British throne insisted he's not a hero, and talked emotionally of two wounded soldiers who flew home with him. "Those are the heroes, guys who had been blown up by a mine serving their country. It is a bit of a choke in your throat," he said.
The 23-year-old prince said he's eager to return to the front line "very, very soon." Harry, who was quickly evacuated from Afghanistan after his deployment was revealed by the press last week, called his withdrawal a "shame." He said his men were "gutted" by his departure, but that he was happy to have fulfilled his dream of serving as a tank troop leader.
