Skip to comments.ANDREW NEIL: Harry's excruciating Taliban killing claim hasn't just created a security nightmare – it's a blunder his reputation will never recover from

Among the many incendiary claims in Spare, Prince Harry's upcoming memoir, the boast that he killed 25 Taliban while serving as an Army helicopter pilot in Afghanistan will do him the most long-term damage by far.
I doubt he will recover from it.
Most of the revelations in his book amount to a further public airing of his family's dirty laundry, an endeavour to which he and wife Meghan have devoted their lives since running off in a huff to California. Jaw-dropping as some of them are, their real import serves merely to confirm what most had already concluded about Harry.
Blaming William and Kate for encouraging him to dress up as a Nazi for a fancy-dress party in 2005 illustrates his repeated failure to take responsibility for his own stupid actions and reinforces his default position that, no matter his own culpability, he is always the victim.
Revealing that he lost his virginity to an 'older woman in a field' who 'treated him like a young stallion', sending him on his way with a spank on the bottom, suggests he is no gentleman, for gentlemen simply don't talk of such things — certainly not in public. It's just one example of many of a moment in which good judgment has deserted him.
In relating an altercation with his brother at his London home in 2019 which resulted in him falling on a dog bowl and breaking his necklace, Harry shows that he has lost all self-awareness and is beyond embarrassment. As a friend said to me last night: 'If that had happened to me, I would have gone to my grave without ever mentioning the necklace.'
What is left but to laugh at a Prince who boasts of killing the Taliban but gets distraught over a broken necklace?

As long as he continues to be married to Mrs. Markle he’ll keep on blundering!
Behavior rivaling Great-Uncle Edward’s friendship with Herr Adolf
Will Prince Dork be forced to MSNBC?
You know it’s bad when even Don Lemon is sick him.
A curse on all of them. They are all awful (the only one who wasn’t just died).
Has the Fatwa been made public yet?
Enjoyable video on the new book….If you’re following these imbeciles, I mean the Harkles.
When Prince Harry went to Afghanistan, he was guarded by fearless Gurkha warriors. I don’t think the Gurkhas would have allowed any Taliban to get close to the prince. As for the Taliban, they are terrified of the Gurkhas, believing that they are living demons who slaughter men and eat captured soldiers alive.
The expression "clutching at pearls" comes to mind. I thought only women did that.
I fear Mr. Henry Charles Albert David crossed that Rubicon many moons ago.
Now we know what his problem is — he is just plain stupid. You can’t be a person closely related to a government and go around bragging about the enemy you killed in a war that is still raging.
Additionally, he will now have to have an army for a bodyguard.
The spoiled brat and his brat wife are getting the attention they want.
“Additionally, he will now have to have an army for a bodyguard.”
And hopefully not a penny from any US taxpayer from any level of government to support that army.
He should have to pay for it himself
Taliban think he is nuts and calling him a war criminal
Look at me, look at me. Another arrested adolescent attention whore. With an idiot wife pulling him around by his pecker.
“ he will now have to have an army for a bodyguard.”
Perhaps that was the purpose for saying it. He and Meghan have been non stop complaining about having the RF pay for their security.
Why are Americans interested in any of this?
I believe the guy, and he has a right to write his story.
But, he really should not have revealed all these private details.
