Earlier this year, Prince William and Kate Middleton (officially known now as the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge) got a major taste of America as they spent a few days attending various events in Los Angeles — and causing a media star that has not been equaled for months.
So now, you would think the same sort of thing would happen since the news has just been announced that Prince Harry will be coming to the United States for two months … right? As it turns out, not so much — primarily since he will be spending most of his time training for the military rather than being at any sort of major events.
According to reports, Harry will be learning the ropes with Apache helicopters in both California and Arizona for the span of two months — though specific dates and locations are not being released in order to maintain order during his stay. This is all part of a move to become more familiar with the latest exercises before getting deployed by the British Army wherever he is needed — though it will likely be Afghanistan.
A spokesperson for Clarence House offered up the following in a statement on the matter:
“Harry is an Army pilot and will deploy wherever the Army chooses to send him. His course finishes in 2012 and after that his deployment will be a matter for the Army chain of command.”
Do you hope that Harry still has a chance to enjoy his time in America?
