A scuffle with Brother William , his defloration , the news of the death of mother Diana - the memoirs of Prince Harry contain a lot of explosive stories. However, some passages in the book appear to cause real problems for the Royal: The statements about his deployment in Afghanistan were 'very stupid', says a British military officer. The publications could even become a terror threat for an event in Germany.
'I expect the threat level will definitely be higher,' former Navy Admiral Alan West told the Sunday Mirror. There will be 'serious security problems'.
With his statements, West refers to the Invictus Games founded by Harry, which are to take place in Germany for the first time this year. 'Measures will have to be taken to protect the veterans,' West said.
The Invictus Games are a sports festival for war-disabled athletes co-initiated by Harry. The Games were first held in London in 2014. Since then, Orlando 2016, Toronto 2017, Sydney 2018, The Hague 2022 have followed – and now Düsseldorf 2023.
The reason for West's security concerns are Harry's statements about his deployment in Afghanistan in his book 'Spare' (in German: Reserve), which is to be published officially on January 10th. In the book, from which numerous passages were pre-published, Harry claims to have killed 25 people in Afghanistan.
'It wasn't something that made me happy, but it wasn't anything that I was ashamed of either,' Harry writes in the book, according to English media. The prince had been sharply criticized for the statements by a high-ranking Taliban member, among others. (jda)source: vip.de
