Following his whirlwind helicopter tour of the UK, the media proclaimed 'Prince of Hearts' has decided to boost the morale of the troops by paying them a flying visit. The granny's favourite is going to fly past the Armed Forces camp in Afghanistan en-route to an RAF sanctioned trip to Thailand.
He will ceremoniously 'dip his wings' as he flies by at Mach2.
RAF bigwigs have scotched rumours that the Royal is using the RAF like some glorified hire car service stating that 'it's customary for newly commissioned pilots to earn their flight time by having the odd long haul mission'.
Although shrouded in secrecy it's been rumoured that the Prince's first real mission will involve undercover work in Bangkok's night markets before flying off to Phuket for a mission code named 'I love you long time'.
