London, Oct 19 (ANI): Prince William has expressed his 'determination' to serve on the front line in Afghanistan, following in the footsteps of his younger brother.

According to Sky News, he expressed his desire to emulate his brother Prince Harry, who served in Helmand in 2008, during a documentary about the second-in-line to the throne.

Twenty-eight-year-old William, who recently became an RAF helicopter pilot, said that he has real determination to fight on the frontline and added that although he understood the reasons that had restricted his chances of serving, he disagreed with them.

He also hoped that he would still be given a chance to fulfil his ambitions to serve in the region.

"There are some slightly valid arguments as to why not, but many of them were hyped up as to why you couldn't go. I still have hope and faith and real determination to go out there," he added.

He further stated that it took a "massive effort into maintaining" his military career and added: "I love it. I love the flying. I can't wait to do the job properly. But it's difficult flitting between my military, my public life and my private lives." (ANI)
