In a new report in The Sun, the paper reports the threat was born from quotes dating back to 2013 from Prince Harry, when he returned from a 20-week tour of duty and publicly spoke of blowing “Taliban extremists to pieces”.
“Yeah, so lots of people have,” Harry said at the time, when asked if he had killed on duty. “The squadron’s been out here. Everyone’s fired a certain amount.
“Take a life to save a life, that’s what we revolve around, I suppose. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game, I suppose.”
Now, it’s reported the royal couple are receiving the same official anti-terror protection that protects Buckingham Palace, the Prime Minister’s office and spy bases, meaning their Oxfordshire home has been guarded with sub-machine guns.
