Whilst the Prince was unharmed, two US Marines were killed and several more were wounded as a result of the event on Friday night.

Harry, who is an Army captain at Camp Bastion, was deployed for his second tour of duty in September.

It is believed that he was about 2km away with other crew members of the Apache attack helicopters, of which he is a co-pilot gunner, when the attack took place.

A Ministry of Defence source said: "The insurgency who mounted this attack were nowhere near Captain Wales."

There are currently no indications of any British fatalities or injuries.
