Harry as the Taliban continues their devastating takeover of Afghanistan, Prince William is said to have intervened to assist the family of a former Afghan officer whom he met at Sandhurst. The Duke of Cambridge is said to have urged his equerry, Naval Officer Rob Dixon, to make some calls to the appropriate personnel to assist the family in getting through the gate and Kabul Airport and boarding a flight to the United Kingdom.
Harry also went to Sandhurst, where all British Army officers are trained to take on the responsibility of commanding their troops.
However, it is unknown whether he was able to assist other members.
The Duke of Sussex, who served two tours in Afghanistan, issued a statement to military veterans about the country last month with his wife Meghan.
According to his statement, “What’s going on in Afghanistan has a global impact on the Invictus community.
“We encourage everyone in the Invictus network — as well as the broader military community — to reach out to one another and offer support.”
Major Andrew Fox, a former paratrooper who served three tours in Afghanistan, commended William’s efforts.
Mr Fox, who has been assisting interpreters fleeing Afghanistan, said he had heard many stories about officers on the ground assisting people from Sandhurst.
“I myself got two para to rush out into the crowd and grab someone for me,” he told the Telegraph.
“It’s completely consistent with what we learn in the Army about values, loyalty, and respect for others, and all that good stuff.
“We’ve been trained to assist in any way we can.
“People would do anything to get out because the situation was so chaotic and, frankly, mismanaged.”
