In the Duke of Sussex's docuseries, Heart of Invictus, he complains about the lack of press coverage veterans received, but one soldier who served alongside him thinks differently.
Harry described a time when he was flown back to the U.K. for safety reasons, and while traveling he got a glimpse of the air hospital. The veteran witnessed stricken servicemen and women receiving crucial treatment.
"Stepping off the plane I was angry at what happened to these guys — I was angry that the media weren't covering it. But at that point it wasn't clear to me what needed to be done," Harry said. "Those are the heroes. Guys who had been blown up by a mine – serving their country doing a normal patrol."
While en route, Harry was with Royal Marine Commando Ben McBean who lost an arm and leg when he stepped on a Taliban landmine.
"I have had his back for 15 years. I’ve always championed him but it doesn’t mean I have to agree with everything that comes out of his mouth," McBean shared. "On this one, the Duke of Sussex is wrong."
"My mom, dad and uncle have met him and William. I think Harry is cool but I am a 36-year-old man and I don’t agree with him," he added.
Harry's relationship with the publishing industry has been contentious. The Duke of Sussex is currently involved in a class action lawsuit against various British tabloids, and he frequently criticizes the industry.
"Every single article has caused me distress," Harry admitted to the High Court in June.
McBean spoke to The Sun.
