MEGHAN MCCAIN: Harry, you can’t brag about your Taliban kill count AND moan about princely punch-up

MEGHAN MCCAIN: Warrior or wimp, Harry? Because you can’t brag about your Taliban kill count AND moan about a princely punch-up. No wonder you’re losing America!

Which is it, Harry? Are you the military tough guy who brags about your body count in Afghanistan, or the frightened prince, who cowers in front of your brother and rushes to call your therapist?

I don’t think you can be both.

In possibly one of the grossest revelations – and that’s saying a lot – to leak from Prince Harry‘s yet-to-be-officially-released memoir is the claim he killed 25 Taliban fighters during his time serving in the British army.

Now, I am obviously not a member of the U.S. military, and I do not diminish Prince Harry’s military service to his country, which fights alongside mine. But I am a sister, daughter, granddaughter, great granddaughter, sister-in-law, and friend to many and active service members, and I have never heard anyone so brazenly brag about how many people they’ve killed.

Already, retired British military members are expressing how disgusted they are with the disclosure.

Former Royal Marine Ben McBean, who served alongside Harry tweeted Thursday: ‘Love you #PrinceHarry but you need to shut up! Makes you wonder the people he’s hanging around with. If it was good people somebody by now would have told him to stop.’

I’m sure America’s warriors share the distaste. And it’s not just that – it is a confusing, tone-deaf juxtaposition.

In another section, Harry recounts the story of a fight between then after William allegedly called Meghan ‘difficult,’ ‘rude’ and ‘abrasive.’

Harry says William knocked him on top of a dog bowl that shattered, cutting his back.

William allegedly urged Harry to fight back. Harry refused.

Instead, he demanded his brother leave and then called a mental health expert.

Who are you, Harry? Well, I think Americans now know. And we’ve stopped buying what you’re selling. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Harry and Meghan are losing America.

Ask yourself: why did Harry hold back these details about his brother until now?

The Sussexes have been on Oprah, sat for countless media interviews, produced a six-part Netflix series and more, and Harry never thought to bring up that he kind of despises William?

No, he was holding on to this nugget for the right moment. He dealt out his family’s dirty laundry piece-by-piece for effect.

Why? The answer, in part, is obviously, money, honey.

How cynical. How insincere. How duplicitous.

He claimed last week that he wants to ‘reconcile’ with his brother and father knowing full well that he was about to drop this latest round of damaging allegations.

Now, even their most sympathetic supporters are turning on them. Here’s none other than Don Lemon on Thursday.

‘Everyone has a family. I have arguments in my family. Am I going to put that out there for the whole world to see?’ Lemon said on his CNN show. ‘I just don’t understand why on Earth he would want to put that out there. I know he’s selling a book but to me, it’s just — it’s just not done, you know?’

‘It’s gauche to me! That’s the word!’ Lemon exclaimed.

Everyone knows there’s two sides to a story and Harry knows that he can tell his side only. William won’t personally respond. Harry’s said it himself: ‘The royal family never complains and never explains’.

He can trash the current and future kings in any way that he wants because the monarchy will continue to keep calm and carry on. Harry and Meghan want to win the news cycle, but the centuries-old monarchy has a slightly longer view of these things.

At the end of the day, families can’t reconcile without understanding and trust. And who can trust Harry?

The answer is no one, least of all his family.

In Spare’s opening chapter, Harry writes about a previously secret meeting with William and Charles hours after the funeral of Prince Philip in April 2021 following Harry and Meghan’s decision to fly the royal roost.

Harry writes, according to our translation of the book, ‘We got so hot that my father put up his hands. ‘Enough!’ He stood between us and looked at our furious faces…

‘I looked at Willy, really looked at him, perhaps for the first time since we were little, taking in every detail: his familiar scowl, which had always been the norm in his dealings with me; his alarming alopecia…

‘My beloved brother, my arch-nemesis, how did we come to this?’

Well, I’ll tell you Harry, how it has come to this. You don’t want to reconcile – you want to injure. You couldn’t even resist taking a dig at your brother’s bald spot. You will sell any family secret, no matter how intimate, for a price.

Come, on. We know what is going on here. It doesn’t take a Royal Correspondent to recognize good ol’ sibling rivalry – and Harry has got it bad. If the title of his book, Spare, didn’t tip you off already, Harry’s not comfortable playing second fiddle.

Every family is complicated; it doesn’t matter who you are. It is not uncommon for brothers to get in physical fights on occasion. I am not saying it is appropriate, but I have four brothers, and trust me – things happen. It is also common and unfortunately counter-productive when one family member doesn’t want to heal. When one person wants to hold grudges, twist the knife, stir the pot and cause trouble.

We all have that person or persons in our lives. We love them. We try to reach them. Sometimes we are that person. And it is exhausting.

King Charles, William, and Kate have no reason to make amends when the entire purpose of your life appears to be destruction. And that’s on you.

But for us Americans, we’re on to you, Harry.
