The 23-year-old left on a flight on Friday evening amid concerns he would be a Taleban target if he stayed.

His tour had been the subject of an agreed news blackout by some media, but news was broken by a foreign website.

The Prince of Wales and Prince William will meet Harry when he arrives at RAF Brize Norton in Oxfordshire.

Harry said he was enjoying being in Afghanistan, away from the British media.

Speaking before his withdrawal from Helmand province, the third-in-line to the throne said he would relish another front-line posting.

“It’s something I would love to do,” he said.

“I don’t want to sit around Windsor, because I generally don’t like England that much and it’s nice to be away from all the press and the papers.”

PRINCE Harry’s army comrades hoisted him on their shoulders after learning he was being withdrawn from Afghanistan yesterday – singing: “He’s ginge, he’s loud, he’s done us f****** proud.”

Emotional squaddies who had fought side-by-side with the hero royal during his ten-week frontline tour continued: “He’s here, he’s mean, his gran’s the f****** Queen. Nice one Harry.”

The disappointed prince, airlifted from the war zone after foreign media leaked news of his secret deployment on the front line, was cheered and clapped by troopers in a bid to lift his spirits.

He was then whisked by Chinook helicopter to a giant coalition airbase on the outskirts of the city of Kandahar, where he boarded a flight home on board a regular RAF TriStar passenger jet.

Earlier, pictures showed the third in line to the throne relaxing with Household Cavalry chums by playing soccer with a ball made from toilet roll.
