Prince Harry told: hands off our women
Fun-loving Prince Harry has been warned to put a stop to his partying ways while holed up in a sleepy US town
Harry and his army pals are in Gila Bend, a community of just 1,700 inhabitants in Arizona, for a Top Gun-style helicopter course.
And local mayor Ron Henry (64), has urged the visiting Brits to be on their best behaviour on his patch.
Mayor Henry said, "There are probably some fathers here in Gila Bend who would go to extremes to protect their daughters. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we have some very pretty girls here. Some of the dads won't take too kindly to a Prince fornicating the night away and drinking into the small hours."
He added, "It is a very quiet town with a lot of good Christian people. This isn't a party town."
Last month, Harry, wooed a waitress during four weeks training in California.
But his options in Gila Bend are somewhat more limited -- the town boasts just one bar and no hard liquor licence.
Michelle Green, a waitress at the town's Little Italy restaurant, said, "Gila Bend is a nice small town. But we don't even have a movie theatre to take a girl on a date."
Local bartender Brigette Mowry added, "Sometimes the British pilots come in here and play pool or have a beer."
Gila Bend was chosen by the Ministry of Defence for Apache helicopter training because the desert region resembles the mountain terrain of Afghanistan.
Mayor Henry added, "I would advise the Prince to take in the beautiful sights of the desert."
