It comes following Harry’s comments about killing the Taliban

The prince says that he did not think of the 25 as “people” but rather “chess pieces” that had to be taken off the board.

He also wrote he saw the insurgents he killed as “baddies eliminated before they could kill goodies”.

Now experts believe Harry should no longer be allowed be the face of the Invictus Games which is a multi-sport event for wounded, injured or sick members of the armed services.

The Games are due to take place in September in Dusseldorf, Germany.

One senior officer told The Mirror: “Harry’s book has become a self-inflicted wound from which he might never recover. 

“It may be a bestseller but the damage done to his reputation, especially among the forces and veterans, could be beyond repair”.

Meanwhile senior member of a veterans charity added: “Harry was idolised by veterans. Many who have competed in the games will tell you it saved their lives.

“But the tide has turned with the publication of Spare and Harry may be viewed as toxic by many veterans.

“If so, he may have to give up his patronage.”

It comes after insiders previously said Harry’s confession has significantly heightened security concerns for the entire Royal Family.

In his memoir, Harry said he gunned down Taliban militants when he flew Apache helicopters in southern Helmand Province in 2012.

He rewatched films of his kills from the gunship’s nose-mounted camera when he returned to base at Camp Bastion.

Harry said the technology meant: “I could always say precisely how many enemy combatants I’d killed”.

He wrote: “So my number: 25. It wasn’t a number that gave me any satisfaction. But neither was it a number that made me feel ashamed.

“In the heat and fog of combat, I didn’t think of those 25 as people. I’d been trained to ‘other-ise’ them.”

The Taliban retaliated by branding Harry a “loser” and demanded he be brought before an “international court” for his “crimes”.
