Perhaps what the 'rags' won't affect whether he goes, but the politicians making the decision might. Williams involvement in this potential tour could be cancelled at any moment for any reason.

The Times is reporting that Prince William will travel to the Falklands tomorrow, 1 February:

Quote:
Prince William will arrive on an RAF-chartered jet at Mount Pleasant after an 18-hour flight from Britain, with a brief stop at Ascension Island. He will quickly be put to work behind the controls of one of two search-and-rescue helicopters that are on call 24 hours a day, flying out of a sprawling military base that surrounds the airport, a 45-minute drive from Stanley, the islands’ capital.

I second all good wishes for a safe deployment. He has a great deal at home to come back to.

Thanks for the update - and he'll be there for six months. That's hard, for newlyweds. But it also builds character.

He'll be in the Falkland Islands for six weeks, not six months

Thank you. You just beat me to the punch! The way people are going on you'd think they'd posted him to the front lines in Afghanistan as a Squaddie!

He is in no more danger there than he is at any time whilst doing his job in Wales. SAR is serious and dangerous work wherever you are in the world.

Couldn't agree more, he's only doing his job.

His doing his job and is very well protected because of his role in BRF. Six weeks is not so long IMO.

It looks like William already had his first mission in the Falklands.
