Prince Harry wants to live in remote village
Britain’s Prince Harry “would love” to live in a remote Australian township.
The 30-year-old royal made a surprise visit to Wuggubun, a remote Aboriginal community which doesn’t appear on most maps, on Wednesday (08.04.15) as he started a month-long deployment with the Australian defence force.
Community member Barry Trust said Harry “just rocked up” but was a “‘real delightful chap, very good to talk to”.
He added to ABC News: “We’ve invited him back again sometime.
“He’d love to – he said he’d love to live out this way, to get away from all the media.”
Wuggubun is located more than 500 miles by road from the nearest city, Darwin and Harry paid an hour-long visit alongside his new comrades in Norforce, or the North-West Mobile Force, a mostly Aboriginal bushland reconnaissance unit whose troops are renowned for their survival and hunting skills.
Mr. Trust added: “We weren’t expecting him and he just rocked up with Norforce.
“It was pretty exciting, especially for the kids.”
Hours before his visit to the township, Harry enjoyed a fishing trip at Diggers Rest, a cattle station featured in Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman’s film ‘Australia’.
During his secondment, Harry – who will leave the Armed Forces in June – is due to serve in Sydney, Darwin and Perth and will train with the nation’s elite SAS.
