Reuters If Prince Harry would have his way, assuming he had the tremendous freedom to go with it, he would always choose life as that of being an army soldier over that of being a British royal.
"My father's always trying to remind me about who I am and stuff like that," Prince Harry was quoted by The Guardian, revealing further that he was most comfortable as just Captain Wales.
"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. I get on well with the lads and I enjoy my job. It really is as simple as that," the apache helicopter pilot/gunner said.
Apart from being an army soldier, Prince Harry said he also struggles to juggle his other personalities so as not to create unwanted chaos and unsolicited attention.
"I have three mes. One in the army, one socially in my own private time, and then one with the family and stuff like that. So there is a switch and I flick it when necessary."
Admitting there have been times he wasn't able to manage well his three personalities, what was certain was that he enjoyed much his army soldier personality.
"Probably being too much army, and not enough a prince," he said.
The 28-year-old youngest son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana hogged the limelight again when he admitted killing insurgents while piloting his Apache helicopter while on duty from September 2012 until January 2013 as a member of the 662 Squad Army Air Corps.
Prince William's younger brother had a job to do, and he said that's just what he exactly did.
"If there's people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we'll take them out of the game, I suppose," he said. "Take a life to save a life ... the squadron's been out here. Everyone's fired a certain amount."
