"The Ministry of Defence would not comment on the reports but the 26-year-old prince, who recently qualified as an Apache helicopter pilot, is believed to be keen to go back to the country.
"An MoD spokesman said: "We cannot comment on the deployment of individual service personnel."
"Clarence House said the prince's redeployment was a matter for the army. It said: "Harry is an army pilot and will deploy wherever the army chooses to send him. His course finishes in 2012 and after that his deployment will be a matter for the army chain of command.""
