Prince Harry eager for Cyprus party
Sep 14, 2012, 12:01 GMT
Britain's Prince Harry is looking forward to a birthday bash in the Mediterranean.
The royal is unable to celebrate his 28th birthday on Saturday (15.09.12) with alcohol in Afghanistan, but will enjoy a belated party with his comrades at a seaside resort in Cyprus once he completes his four-month tour of military duty.
A member of the Armed Forces told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: 'There is a chance for their first drink in months, and also a chance to share feelings with comrades. It can be quite a party atmosphere.
'Nobody will leak on Prince Harry there, especially after the support shown by fellow soldiers who stripped off on Facebook for him.'
The Apache helicopter pilot will be sent to the military bases of Episkopi or Akrotiri for 24 to 36 hours of 'decompression' before heading back to the UK, where his behavior will be closely scrutinised after nude pictures of his alcohol-fuelled antics in a Las Vegas hotel suite were published in August.
Harry caused controversy when naked images of him hugging a girl during a game of strip billiards surfaced online last month.
Prince Harry was deployed to Afghanistan last week and is based at Camp Bastian in Helmand province.
