The mayor of Gila Bend, Arizona, has a blunt message for Prince Harry: Hands off our gals.
“There are probably some fathers here in Gila Bend who would go to extremes to protect their daughters,” Mayor Ron Henry told the Daily Mail.
“It is a very quiet town with a lot of good Christian people. This isn't a party town.”
Got it, Harry?
The prince is in this tiny corner of Arizona to complete his Apache helicopter training, which began a month ago in California.
Set in the middle of the Arizona desert, its surrounding landscape is a good imitation of the conditions that a military force would encounter in Afghanistan.
Prince Harry has already been spotted around town. On Friday, he and about 30 fellow military types surprised the locals by showing up at the Little Italy Pizzeria. It’s reported that Harry ate a pizza covered with pepperoni, bacon and sausage.
This week, it’s the Shrimp Festival in Gila Bend, though there’s been no sighting of Harry gobbling shrimp yet.
As for the girls, the party-hard Harry won’t have as much opportunities here as he did in San Diego, where he was visited several night spots and was even rumoured to be romancing a cocktail waitress.
"Gila Bend is a nice small town,” said Michelle Green, a waitress at the Little Italia. “But we don't even have a movie theatre to take a girl on a date."
So, what’s a prince to do?
"I would advise the Prince to take in the beautiful sights of the desert," suggested the mayor.
