Prince Harry ‘celebrates helicopter pilot’s licence with boozy night’

London, May 4 (ANI): Prince Harry reportedly passed his helicopter pilot’s licence and celebrated his success with a boozy night out in a club.

The third in line to the British throne, who is training to pilot the meanest attack machine in the British Army, the Apache, had allegedly flunked a theory exam earlier this year and was given the opportunity to take it again.

Harry, 24, upon clearing the exam, was claimed to be a step closer to his dream of returning to Afghanistan from where he was pulled off last year following safety concerns after news of his presence there was leaked.

“Harry can now fly military helicopters and is a step closer to passing his Wings,” the Mirror quoted a source as saying.

“It also means he is more likely to return to the front line. As a foot soldier, he is regarded as a magnet for bombs but as an airborne one, he is harder to trace.

“Harry and William celebrated at the Troubadour. They watched a friend’s band until 2am,” the source added. (ANI)
