Royalty is coming Gila Bend, Ariz., and folks there can hardly wait.
Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne, is on a two-month mission to the United States to learn how to fly Apache helicopters.

Prince Harry, flying, apache, helicopterHe already wowed the locals in El Centro, Calif., and Gila Bend is the redheaded royal's next stop. The Gila Bend Air Force Auxiliary Field was chosen as a practice locale for British pilots because Arizona's desert conditions are similar to those in Afghanistan.

Harry, 27, is easily Britain's most eligible bachelor since the marriage of his older brother, William, to Kate Middleton, now the duchess of Cambridge.

"Everybody keeps coming in and asking, 'Did you see him? Is he here yet?' " Michele Green, a waitress at Little Italy Pizza, told the Arizona Republic.

That's the problem: No one is exactly sure when Capt. Wales, as the prince is known in the military, will arrive, or where he will stay.
