Kate Middleton and Prince William are reportedly planning a party to welcome home Prince Harry, who's currently serving in Afghanistan. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, along with Pippa Middleton and Camilla, Duchess of Cornall, are planning the welcome home party for the young Prince of Wales, Daily Star reported Tuesday.
The exact date of Prince Harry's homecoming is not yet known, but reports claim he will leave the war zone "in days." The 28-year-old Prince is currently serving a four month tour in Afghanistan. It's the second overseas deployment that has forced him to miss Christmas with the royal family. He was reportedly planning to video chat (via Skype) with his family on Christmas Day while they gathered at Sandringham. It's also been reported the third-in-line to the throne was able to call Prince William on New Years Eve.
Prince Harry, who goes by Captain Wales in the British military, is an Apache helicopter pilot stationed at Camp Bastion in southern Afghanistan. He's part of the 100-strong 662 Squadron, 3 Regiment, Army Air Corps whose mission is to, "provide surveillance, deterrence and, when required, close combat attack capabilities as well as escort duties for other aircraft."
