Prince Harry offered a glimpse into his life in the Royal Air Force in newly released photos from Afghanistan, where he has been deployed for the past 20 weeks. Harry was pictured working on a helicopter and doing drills in Camp Bastion, as well as relaxing with his fellow soldiers by playing video games and dressing up in a Santa hat. The images came out as the UK Ministry of Defense confirms Harry is heading back to the UK this week.
While in Camp Bastion, Harry opened up in a series of interviews to share his thoughts on recent royal headlines, including Prince William and Kate Middleton's baby news. Harry said, "I'm thrilled for both of them. I can't wait to be an uncle." In addition to discussing Will and Kate's big news, Harry's own nude photo scandal came up. Harry revealed, "It was probably a classic example of me probably being too much army and not enough prince. It's a simple case of that. I let my family down; I let other people down. But at the end of the day, I was in a private area, and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect."
