The British Prince – known as Captain Harry Wales during his visit to Australia – has been based with the Australian Army in the Northern Territory and Western Australia since early April.

A statement released by the Defence Department on Sunday reveals that Captain Wales has taken flight simulation training before “heading out” in an attack helicopter reconnaissance flight from Darwin.

He has also learned how to find food and water in the bush, camped in the remote Kununurra​ region, done physical training with troops and played wheelchair AFL with wounded soldiers.

Captain Wales, due to retire from the British Armed Forces in June, is to travel to Gallipoli for Anzac Day and will then spend time with Australia’s special forces in Perth and the army in Sydney on his month-long military secondment.

Captain Wales’ only public engagement during his trip was a visit to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra when he first arrived.

A Kensington Palace spokesman has said that because it is not an official royal visit, Captain Wales does not plan to make any public speeches.

He will obviously let his helicopter flying do the talking instead.
