Help

Prince Harry has qualified as an Apache helicopter co-pilot after 18 months of rigorous training in the UK and the US, the Ministry of Defence has said.

The third in line to the throne was awarded a prize for best co-pilot gunner at a dinner on Wednesday at his Army Air Corps training base at Wattisham, Suffolk.

Previously, the prince has hinted of his wish to return to Afghanistan after his first tour of duty was cut short.
