England's Price Harry will return to his country after a deployment to Afghanistan, the Ministry of Defense revealed Monday.
The son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana served as an Apache helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps for five months and told the BBC
several times that he shot rockets and missiles at Taliban fighters.
"Prince Harry" started trending on Twitter soon after the announcement, and many were quick to welcome home "Capt. Wales," the nickname given to him by his fellow soldiers.
The Ministry did not disclose the prince's whereabouts or when he would be back.
Harry also took heat for comments he made upon his exit. When asked if he killed from the cockpit, he told reporters: "Yea, so lots of people have."
The prince echoed this sentiment to a pool of reporters in Afghanistan.
"It's very easy to forget about who I am when I am in the army. Everyone's wearing the same uniform and doing the same kind of thing," he said.
