Prince Harry is currently based at Camp Bastion on his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, which is due to last four months.
He has been undergoing training to fly operations in Apache attack helicopters.
The 27-year-old Army captain arrived in the war-torn country last Friday, but will not have started his role yet as co-pilot gunner.
Camp Bastion is a huge base in the middle of the desert shared with US, Estonian, Danish and Afghan troops.
It is the logistics hub for operations in Helmand, with supply convoys and armoured patrols regularly leaving its heavily-defended gates, to support the military forward operating bases, patrol bases and checkpoints spread across Helmand province.
