Prince Harry secretly visiting pals at US Top Gun air force baseJune 27, 2021
PRINCE Harry has been secretly visiting pals at a US Top Gun air force base after he was distraught at losing his royal military patronages.
Despite no longer having any official roles in the UK’s Armed Forces, he has met with ex-comrades from his spell as an Apache helicopter pilot.
Sources say at least two of his former colleagues and friends are now on a posting at Nellis base near Las Vegas — where Tom Cruise-style Top Guns are trained.
One said: “Harry has kept in touch with them so when they knew he was moving to the States they invited him to come and see them.
"He’s made informal visits to the air base where they are and they’ve been out for drinks in their ‘down time’.”
In 2011, Harry completed helicopter gunship training at a US military base in California and later carried out a live-fire exercise in Arizona.
It is thought those he met with are American pals from that training stint.
The source said: “Harry has just been himself with them, larking around and enjoying a joke or two, like they used to.
"He’s very down to earth with his military pals.
“It’s been good for Harry as it makes him feel like he’s at home when he’s with them.”
The Queen stripped Harry of his patronages when he and wife Meghan quit royal duties and moved to the US.
Death a wake-up call
OFFICIALS went to extraordinary lengths to wake Prince Harry and tell him his grandfather Prince Philip had died.
Documents seen by The Sun on Sunday show that an individual from the US Embassy in London rang Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office at 2.30am Californian time on April 9.
The caller asked for a cop to head to Harry and Meghan’s £11million Montecito mansion to advise the prince to “check his phone”.
Police confirmed that an officer attended Harry’s address and passed on the message.
It is not known who contacted the police and even senior figures at the embassy were kept in the dark. But the embassy intervention exposes the communication breakdown between Buckingham Palace and Harry and Meghan since they quit royal duty for California.
1The pair also have no media or communications staff in Britain.
