Happy Birthday, Prince Harry!
Prince Harry turns 27 today. Happy birthday!
That’s right: Prince Harry, England’s most eligible bachelor, turns 27 today. Happy birthday, Harry!
It’s been a busy year for the prince, between his brother’s wedding, his summer fling with model Florence Brudenell-Bruce, and the occasional fully-clothed dive into Croatian pools. But what’s he up to today? According to People, he’s hard at work: He’ll be spending the day at RAF Wattisham airfield finishing up his Apache helicopter training. Apparently the world doesn’t stop just because it’s your birthday!
What’s next for Harry? In October, he’ll be embarking on a two-month visit to the States. But before you get too excited, alas, he won’t have much free time while he’s here—it’s a work-related visit. He’ll start by taking part in Exercise Crimson Eagle in El Centro, California, after which he’ll head to the Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field in Arizona. Once he’s gotten through this last batch of training, he’ll be all set to join one of the UK’s Apache squadrons. Good for him!
Though his US training course won’t have much downtime, you still might be able to arrange a “chance meeting” with the prince—in Vegas! A military source told People that it’s tradition for helicopter pilots to hit up Vegas for a mid-training break during their 12-week course. “This is a chance for pilots to let their hair down, kick back and enjoy themselves,” the source said.
Once more, all together now: Happy birthday, Harry!
