Not to start an internet rumor or anything, but take a look at the bottom picture where he's in the car hiding his face - is that girl sitting next to him Chelsy? I'd think if it was, the article would say, but it does sort of look like her.

If it was Chelsy, The Daily Mail would've made that the headline, most likely.

Heck I can't even tell if it's really Prince Harry in that picture. That could be anyone.
How is he spending all of his time on vacation Marg?

I was merely curious as there have been no reports of him doing his Army "thing" in the recent past.

He's been training at RAF Shawbury for the last several months. And both William and Harry just did an interview a month and a half ago.
Here's the write-up about it:
Brothers in arms: Prince William vows not to be mollycoddled saying ¿I want to fight in Afghanistan¿, as Harry reveals own ambition to return to war zone | Mail Online

I can't seem to post the video of the interview though.

We were told that he is such a natural, that I presumed he didn't require any training, that or his pass was guaranteed from the start!

I have to admit I am wondering if maybe the pilots in the colonies take longer to train than "Naturals".

But seriously, trainee pilots hit the books big time and do not take weeks off tripping oversees or whatever during their initial training if they were hoping to make the cut.

It looks to me like it might be Astrid Harbord, but the faces are so obscured I think it's nearly impossible to be sure.

Much the same here for normal trainees, they especially keep away from late night alcohol fueled evenings and weekends.

As royal events are all planned six months ahead, the ceremony where PC pins on PH's wings has been booked long ago. So he can hardly fail at that.

Punched him in the face? Oh my lord...some people should avoid interviews, they make no sense.

Mail Online ran a similar article today - thought people might like to read the comments at the bottom of the article.

It seems only a matter of time before we allow footballers to replace royalty as the nation's figureheads

Congratulations to Harry!
So much for 'difficulties' the tabloids reported he had been experiencing.
Although this was only the first stage, I believe Harry is more than capable of passing the remaining courses.

It's interesting he prefers to fly the Lynx though: most boys dream of flying the Apache.
Not that Lynx is any worse or easier, of course.

Good for him so by March he should pass any idea about when his elder Brother will become a SAR Pilot

Prince William's training at Defence Helicopter Flying School at RAF Shawbury is expected to be over in 2010. Once it's completed, William will probably be on operational tour (lasting about 30 to 36 months).
