Is Prince Harry headed back to the warfront in Afghanistan? Looks that way.
The ginger-haired royal will be deployed to the ravaged nation after he completes Apache helicopter pilot training next year, Britain’s The Telegraph said Thursday. Harry previously served in the Helmand province of the war-torn country in 2008, but was removed after the media compromised his location. According to multiple reports out of the UK, Prince Harry will be deployed again when his squadron returns to Afghanistan in 2012.
“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,” a spokesperson for the Clarence House remarked coyly.
The 23-year-old was recently qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot.
