Former British Army Officer Questions Prince Harry’s ‘Heart of Invictus’ Claims

Colonel Richard Justin Kemp, a retired British Army officer with a distinguished military career spanning nearly three decades, has publicly criticized Prince Harry following the premiere of the Netflix series “Heart of Invictus.”

In a YouTube video that garnered thousands of views within hours of its release, Colonel Kemp questioned Prince Harry’s claims regarding his service in Afghanistan and his portrayal of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Kemp, who served from 1977 to 2006 and commanded Operation Fingal in Afghanistan from July to November 2003, expressed skepticism about the level of stress Prince Harry experienced during his service.

He stated,

“I would really question what stress he was under during his tenure of service in Afghanistan.”

One of the primary points of contention highlighted by Colonel Kemp is Prince Harry’s perceived alignment with a “woke” agenda and his alleged exploitation of his military service for personal gain.

Kemp accused the Duke of Sussex of turning against his own family and contributing to the suspicion and reduced affection he now faces within the armed forces.

Kemp specifically pointed to Harry’s comments in his memoir, where he discussed killing Taliban members and referred to them as subhuman.

According to Colonel Kemp, these remarks appear to cater to a woke narrative rather than providing an accurate representation of the military experience.

Prince Harry’s military service includes two tours of Afghanistan, first as a forward air controller in 2007/08 and later as a co-pilot gunner in Apache attack helicopters in 2012.

In his book “Spare,” he candidly shared details of his deployments, including the number of enemy combatants he had encountered.
