William attended a service at Camp Bastion in Helmand Province, where he also laid a poppy wreath at a memorial.

He then met with the troops, some of whom the Prince trained with recently when he was studying to be a helicopter pilot.

This was Prince William’s second secret trip to Afghanistan. In 2008, he spent a few hours in Kandahar. He has expressed a deep interest in serving in Afghanistan as a helicopter pilot.

His brother, Prince Harry, fought in Helmand Province in late 2007 into early 2008 until some media outlets exposed his service.
