Oh no! Prince Harry just left on a four-month tour to serve his country, and he’s already receiving kidnapping and death threats.
Just two days after Prince Harry bravely left for a four-month tour of duty in Afghanistan, the 27-year-old pilot has already received dangerous threats from the Taliban.
“We are using all our strength to get rid of him, either by killing or kidnapping,” a Taliban spokesman has said, according to reports from Reuters.
Britain’s Ministry of Defence has not commented on the Taliban’s statement and few details about Prince Harry’s time in Afghanistan have been released for security reasons.
The royal arrived in the war zone early Sept. 8 and is set to finish the first phase of his initial training at Camp Bastion before he serves as a co-pilot of an Apache attack helicopter.
Harry previously served in Afghanistan in 2007 and 2008.
Do YOU think Harry should leave the British Army now that he’s receiving death threats?
