Prince Harry has said that he is "thrilled" to be back in the UK and is "longing" to see his brother and sister-in-law Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.
Prince Harry said he hoped to take on more royal duties in 2013 and "pay some more attention to the charities".
Asked if he had killed Taliban insurgents during his time in Afghanistan, Prince Harry said: "You get asked to do things that you would expect to do wearing this uniform and that's as simple as that really."
In his first interview on his return to the UK, Prince Harry said he was "longing to see my brother and sister-in-law".
Prince Harry said his time in Afghanistan gave him "life experiences that you would get nowhere else" but he is "looking forward to going back and seeing my family".
