Prince William is due to be deployed to the troubled Falkland Islands later today, where he will be working as an air force pilot, the Telegraph reports.The Prince’s arrival comes just a day after the UK announced it would be sending its most advanced warship to the region, which part of a territorial dispute with Argentina.

The Prince is due to take part in a six week long military mission.

Apparently in response to David Cameron’s “colonialism” comments, the Argentinian Foreign Ministry has released a statement on the deployment, saying it was regrettable that the Prince would be arriving in “the uniform of a conqueror.”
