Prince Harry secretly visits friends at US Top Gun Air Force Base

Sources say at least two of his former colleagues and friends are now stationed at Nellis’ base near Las Vegas – where the Tom Cruise-style Top Guns are trained.

One said: ‘Harry kept in touch with them so when they found out he was moving to the States they invited him to come and see them.

“He made informal visits to the air base where they are and they went out for a drink during their ‘downtime’. “

In 2011, Harry completed his gunship training at a US military base in California and then conducted a live fire exercise in Arizona.

Those he met are believed to be American friends from that training.

The source said: ‘Harry just got to be himself with them, having fun and enjoying a joke or two, like they did before.

“It’s good for Harry because it makes him feel like he’s at home when he’s with them.” “

Death an awakening

OFFICIALS went to extraordinary lengths to wake Prince Harry up and tell him that his grandfather, Prince Philip, had passed away.

Documents seen by The Sun on Sunday show an individual from the United States Embassy in London called the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office at 2:30 a.m. California time on April 9.

The caller asked a cop to come to Harry and Meghan’s £ 11million Montecito mansion to advise the prince to ‘check his phone’.

Police confirmed that an officer visited Harry’s address and relayed the message.

It is not known who contacted the police and even senior embassy officials have been kept in the dark. But the embassy’s intervention exposes the breakdown in communication between Buckingham Palace and Harry and Meghan since they left their royal duties for California.

The couple also have no media or communications staff in Britain.
