According to The Telegraph, Harry’s claimed confession was related to his service as an Apache helicopter pilot. From 2007 to 2008, he worked as an air controller in air attacks in Afghanistan before becoming an assault helicopter pilot in 2012.
Some pointed out that it’s rare for a military guy to make this information public, and most Twitter replies indicate that the public isn’t believing Harry’s claims.
Commentators on Twitter were quick to ridicule Harry for the claims:
So he’s the greatest soldier in the history of the British Army but his brother knocked him over and he did nothing about it. One or both of these stories from his fantasy memoir are bogus.

A British Colonel slammed Harry for making the statements about his purported kill count, claiming that having turned on his birth family Harry was now turning on his military family as well.
Ex-colonel Tim Collin condemned Harry for the remarks.
“That’s not how you behave in the Army; it’s not how we think.” Collin said.
“He has badly let the side down. We don’t do notches on the rifle butt. We never did.” he continued.
“Harry has now turned against the other family, the military, that once embraced him having trashed his birth family.” he added.
