LONDON (AP) – Prince Harry is back in Britain after more than four months serving in Afghanistan.

The prince landed on a military flight at a snowy Brize Norton airbase, northwest of London, on Wednesday afternoon.

Defense officials announced Monday that Harry – known as Capt. Wales in the army – had completed his 20-week deployment as co-pilot gunner on an Apache attack helicopter.

Harry is expected to go to the headquarters of his Army Air Corps squadron before beginning several weeks of leave.
