Prince Harry: Back On the Frontline – BBC News, Sky News
Posted by TV Newsroom on Monday 21 January 2013

Prince Harry has left Afghanistan after serving five months on the front line.

This was the 28-year-old’s second stint in combat after serving 2 months in the country in 2007/8.

Upon leaving the war zone, Prince Harry launched a scathing attack on the media, saying he should have been entitled to privacy in Las Vegas.

In a interview conducted in Camp Bastion, Harry admits that stripping in Las Vegas was a mistake, but says the papers have made no allowances for the fact that he was heading out to war, adding: “It was probably a classic example of me being too much Army and not enough Prince.

“Yes people might look at it, going, it was letting off steam, it’s all understandable now you’re going out to Afghanistan – well, the papers knew that I was going out to Afghan anyway.

“The way I was treated by them, I don’t think it’s acceptable.”

Sky News will broadcast a documentary on Prince Harry’s tour of duty in Afghanistan at 8.30pm and 9.30pm this evening on Sky Channel 501, Virgin Media 602, Freeview 82 and Freesat 202.

UPDATE: Sky News will rebroadcast Harry: Back On the Frontline on Tuesday evening at 9.30pm.

The BBC News Channel will air their documentary at 8.30pm and 10.30pm this evening on Sky Channel 503, Virgin Media 601, Freeview 80 and Freesat 200.
