Prince Harry has been warned to be vigilant after the horrific Woolwich attack last week which claimed the life of drummer Lee Rigby.
The royal, who is also an Apache pilot, has been told to stay close to his protection officers at all times and remain focused when he is in public, in light of the events that took place in Woolwich last week.
The attack last week, which has left a nation in shock, has led to security around the Prince being tightened as a royal source said: “He is the Taliban’s number one target”, according to the Daily Mirror.
Harry, who is currently third-in-line, is also a supporter of the Help for Heroes charity, the same charity Lee Rigby had been wearing a T-shirt from.
In recent months, Prince Harry has increased his royal workload, as he begins to offer more support to his grandmother, The Queen. Harry most recently spent a week in the USA where he met Michelle Obama.
In January, after returning from Afghanistan the Prince spoke candidly about his four-month tour-of-duty.
“Take a life to save a life, That’s what we revolve around, I suppose. If there’s people trying to do bad stuff to our guys, then we’ll take them out of the game, I suppose.
The brother of Prince William also revealed he feels most normal when working in the army.
“But yeah, it’s completely normal. It’s as normal as it’s going to get. I’m one of the guys. I don’t get treated any differently.”
