The Ministry of Defence (MoD) said on Friday that Queen
Elizabeth’s grandson would serve a four-month tour, based out of
Camp Bastion in Helmand Province – one of the most volatile
regions in the country where Britain has been fighting alongside
the United States against the local Taliban since 2001.

“Working alongside his colleagues in the squadron, he will
be in a difficult and demanding job,” said Lieutenant Colonel
Tom de la Rue in a statement.

The prince, known in the military as Captain Wales, first
served in Afghanistan in 2008 as an on-ground air controller,
but his tour was cut short after foreign media broke a news
blackout requested to protect him while on the front line.
