Prince Harry travels 120 miles for a burger

Tuesday October 11, 2011

Prince Harry has only just arrived in America to take part in the final part of his Apache pilot training.

But it seems the 27-year-old royal and his RAF Wattisham colleagues are already missing their creature comforts.

Harry and his British mates travelled around 120 miles to the nearest Irish bar, to tuck into some hamburgers. 

Mingling with the locals as they dined outside the pub, the third-in-line even took a picture of a happy couple celebrating their wedding.

Waitress Leah Bentley spoke of how normal and nice the party was:

"Harry and his friends were really nice. It took me a minute before I realised who he was.

"I bantered with him and tried to treat him like any other customer. He and his friends were very good-looking and were nice tippers."

The Prince was taking some time out to relex before his gruelling two-month training scheme begins.

A spokesperson said; "Harry has a bit of down-time on the course, which he will spend privately with his course mates."
