According to his own accounts, Prince Harry killed 25 people as a soldier in Afghanistan. 'One of the most important things I learned in the army is that I am responsible for my own actions. So my number: 25,” Harry writes in his memoirs, according to Sky News. The Taliban's response came just a day later: a senior Taliban official accused Harry of war crimes.

'Of course I would have preferred not to have that number on my military record or in my head, but I would also have preferred to live in a world without the Taliban, in a world without war.' Even as a regular daydreamer, however, there are realities that cannot be changed, writes the 38-year-old.
Criticism immediately hailed, even the Taliban spoke up. A senior Taliban member accused Harry of war crimes. “Those you killed weren't pawns, they were people; they had families waiting for their return,” Anas Hakkani wrote on Twitter on Friday. He at least gave Harry some respect for his sincerity: 'Among the murderers of Afghans, not many have the decency to reveal their conscience and confess their war crimes.'
