Britain’s Prince Harry spent three nights partying in Las Vegas over the weekend, notably dancing and drinking with a mystery blonde woman, local media reported.

The 27-year-old royal was first spotted with her in the early hours of Saturday at the Nevada gambling mecca’s Tryst nightclub, the Las Vegas Sun newspaper reported.

The third in line to the British throne arrived in Vegas on Friday Easy Rider-style on a rented Harley Davidson from Arizona, where he has been undergoing military training since last month.

Harry, known as Captain Wales in the armed forces, arrived in California in early October, to learn to fly Apache helicopter gunships in terrain similar to Afghanistan.

Within hours of his arrival he was spotted in a pub and watching rugby in a downtown hotel in San Diego, about two hours away from the base in El Centro where he is stationed.

The prince will return to Britain a fully-fledged Apache pilot at the end of the two-month training but Britain’s defence ministry has refused to comment on speculation that he has been given the green light to return to Afghanistan.

The 27-year-old has made it clear he is determined to serve again in Afghanistan, where his deployment as a soldier in 2007-2008 had to be hastily cut short after a media blackout was breached.
