I think it's good that he want to take on more royal duties and focus on his charities. I have always said that it's time for the younger generation of royals to step up their official duties.

More tweets;

@RoyalReporter: Asked to clarify if he killed in Afghanistan, Harry says: "You get asked to do things that you'd expect to do wearing this uniform."

@RoyalReporter: Prince Harry talked about a 7-year-old girl being shot on his last day in Afghanistan: "I don't know what's normal for me anymore."

Here's another tweet.

SkyNewsRoyal: "longing to see my brother and sister-in-law. That's behind closed doors, you guys (media) aren't invites."

What a random question about his family tree. What was the interviewer hoping for? "I like to imagine I'm a modern-day Henry V at the battle of Agincourt, only instead of being on a horse I'm in a helicopter"? Very odd.

That was a very odd question and I was looking puzzled too.

I interpretted it from Henry's response that it was a possible dig at his parentage. Henry said something like "there's deeper meaning behind that" or there's a reason you're asking or something along those lines. The father thing was the first thing that came to mind.

It shows his anger against the media

i thought it was so strange... especially when he asked have you ever looked into your family tree or something like that.... is there any body whose family tree isnt more documented than his?

I LOVE Prince Harry, He has served his country, now allow him time to himself and his family, because being royal or not, his family is thrilled he is home all in one piece. My son has now served in the Air Force for 8 years, I miss him terribly and if he came back home, I would want some alone time, I can't imagine having to satisify the media first. Hope Harry gets time with W&C, they seem to be very close to each other. So glad he is back home!!

What happened to the one week decompression period? 24 hours is very little time!

I thought he was laughing when he said it. I didnt take it as malicious or mean-spirited.

Not sure where you heard the "one week" thing, I think it was just over 24 hours in Cyprus and then a few days in Wattisham finishing up before his 5 week leave.

According to the RAF website; RAF Community - Decompression

Quote:
Decompression usually takes between 24 and 36 hours and further details are available in the short video below.

I'm really surprised the period is so short. That's not much more time than soldiers returning from Vietnam had to adjust, and so many of them found it really difficult to be let loose back into the ordinary world after such a short time. Maybe the techniques have improved dramatically since then.

Prince Harry did not go with the rest of his 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, to their headquarters in Wattisham in Suffolk.

St James’s Palace said he left Brize Norton privately, but did not comment on where he was headed.

Now that's something I didn't expect him to clearly "duck" out of. If his regiment does it, he should. Simple.
