Britain’s Prince Harry, who has been in the American southwest brushing up on his helicopter piloting skills for a few weeks, should probably think twice before attempting to seduce any eligible young women from the small town of Gila Bend, Ariz.
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we have some very pretty girls here,” mayor Ron Henry tells the U.K.’s Daily Telegraph. “Some of the dads won’t take too kindly to a prince fornicating the night away and drinking into the small hours.”
Apparently the 27-year-old royal’s reputation has preceded him.
“There are probably some fathers here in Gila Bend who would go to extremes to protect their daughters,” says mayor Ron Henry. “It is a very quiet town with a lot of good Christian people. This isn’t a party town.”
“There are a lot of girls in town who would kill to meet a British prince, I think he is going to be swamped when he comes here,” says Renee Vidana, a waitress at the town’s Space Age Lodge. “They all usually are hanging around the basketball courts at night, but if they know he is sitting here in the Space Age Lodge restaurant they will all arrive with their camera phones. “
We’re just as confused as you are.
