From the freezing conditions of the Arctic to sunny California, Prince Harry will be spending three months in the Golden State and Arizona to take part in a series of Apache helicopter training courses.

After the trip, he will become a fully fledged Apache pilot and could be re-deployed to the front lines in Afghanistan.

Harry's spokesman Nick Loughran told the The Daily: 'The prince will be coming to the States at some point in the next couple of months for a handful of courses ... in parts of Arizona and California.'

The news follows the ending of the Prince's two-month relationship with underwear model Florence Brudenell-Bruce, who used to go out with Formula 1's Jenson Button. She asked him to join her on holiday in Ibiza, but that will not now happen, according to the Daily Mail.

His brother, Prince William, and his wife, Catherine Middleton, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, made a flying visit to California last month after their eight-day tour of Canada.
