Just days after he got into a major controversy over a racist remark against one of his army colleagues, Prince Harry has suffered yet another setback this year by failing in his first flying test….
The 24-year-old third-in-line to the British throne has flunked the theory-based flying test at a Royal Air Force base in Lincolnshire only few weeks into his two-year course, the ‘News of the World’ reported.
“Harry didn’t reach the grade but he will have plenty of other opportunities to pass it. He will now be given extra tuition. It wasn’t a case of Harry failing and being booted off the course. It’s part of an on-going assessment,” a Royal source was quoted by the British tabloid as saying.
Prince Harry, an Army Lieutenant in the Household Cavalry’s Blues and Royals, is currently on an attachment to the Army Air Corps for his flying training.
