Prince William is to fight in the war against South American drug cartels.
The Household Cavalry officer will join Royal Navy patrols to catch cocaine smugglers in the Caribbean.
Both Clarence House and Armed Forces chiefs want William, 25, to gain experience as an officer in all three services and he will soon complete his four-month stint with the RAF. A senior military source said last night: “Everyone agrees he needs operational experience and to feel he is playing a vital role.
“As a possible future King it is essential for everyone in the Armed Forces to see he is doing his bit.”But there are security issues with him going to Iraq or Afghanistan as he is a massive al-Qaeda target. The Caribbean on a Royal Navy warship is an ideal tour as it has operational potential and it works diplomatically.
“Local island governors will be very pleased to see a royal visiting them.”
The Royal Navy said: “We do not routinely comment on the details of the operational deployments of either our units or our personnel.”
