Prince Harry Reveals He Went Through Psychological Testing After His Afghanistan Tour

Get the details about Harry's time in the military.

Prince Harry is opening up about what it was like to get home from Afghanistan.

The royal was deployed with the British Army in December of 2007 for about ten weeks, before his location was revealed and the forces removed him from duty.

The 31-year-old recently told Sky News that he went through psychological testing after his time in the service, saying:

“The Army put you through a day, two-day course on the way back through Cyprus, which is crucial to everybody.”

While the red-headed hunk’s time in the military was short-lived, he admits he’s seen some serious stuff that still stays with him:

“You know, I described it to someone ages ago as one of those slide shows that go through your mind. If you’ve got a good imagination as well, everything that you see, especially if it’s something that is quite powerful, then that slide is in there. It’s always in there and if you have dark moments in your life those slides will pop up.”

The UK native confessed that he relates to the Invictus Games participants, who are wounded, injured, or sick veterans playing in a Paralympic sporting event.

However, he stressed that they’ve seen much more horrifying things than he has:

“You know there are images I’ve been lucky enough not to see, but there have been images that I’ve been unfortunate to see, nothing like some of these guys, but yes there is a percentage of me being able to relate to exactly what they go through.”

Wow. We can even imagine what the Prince or these vets have gone through. But, we’re glad he was provided with psychological help so he could cope with the emotional experiences.
