Prince Harry returns from Afghanistan tonight after his latest four-month tour of duty in the country.

He has spoken for the first time about how he killed enemy fighters from his Apache helicopter during his latest tour of Afghanistan.

As the 28-year-old Prince prepared to return home to the UK after a 20-week posting to the war-torn country, he confirmed his role in taking Taliban insurgents 'out of the game', saying 'take a life to save a life'.

In his role as a gunner in Apache attack helicopters, the Prince - known as Captain Wales in the army - had to fly on scores of daring missions with his finger on the triggers of deadly rockets, missiles, and a 30mm cannon.

Asked if he had killed from the cockpit, the third-in-line to the throne said matter-of-factly: 'Yeah, so lots of people have.

'The squadron's been out here. Everyone's fired a certain amount.'
