Prince Harry’s claim that he killed 25 Taliban during his deployment in Afghanistan has left his supporters worrying for his safety.
It has been reported that extremist elements threatened the Duke of Sussex on Twitter in Afghanistan and Pakistan after his statement about the Taliban.
Taliban leader Anas Haqqani also reacted to Prince Harry’s statement on Twitter.
Harry’s supporters said the Prince would need more security for himself and his family.
The Duke of Sussex is already fighting a legal battle in the UK over security.
Harry has maintained that he wanted to pay for his security during his visits to the UK.
Meanwhile, voluntarily exiled in California, Prince Harry is settling scores but his upcoming memoirs, hot on the heels of a tell-all documentary and TV interviews, look set to sound the death knell on his hopes of a family reconciliation.
The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex wants the world to know the “truth” about his childhood, forever marked by the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
His autobiography, titled “Spare”, will detail his contempt for the British tabloids and his arguments with brother and heir to the throne Prince William.
William once threw his younger brother to the ground in a row over the latter’s American wife, Meghan, according to an excerpt from Harry’s autobiography reported by The Guardian newspaper.
In the six-hour Netflix documentary released in December and in two interviews for his book, which comes out on Tuesday, he accuses his father King Charles III of lying.
He also claims “betrayal” by the royal “firm” for not protecting him and Meghan, the mixed-race former television actress he married in May 2018.
