LONDON (AP) — St. James' Palace says Britain's Prince William has returned to Britain after his deployment to the Falkland Islands.
William has been stationed on the Falklands since February. Flight Lt. Wales, as he's known in the Royal Air Force, was one of several pilots on call for search and rescue missions in the sprawling archipelago of 704 islands.
Local islanders say William briefly visited the local hospital, and made a trip to remote Sea Lion island, a paradise for penguins, sea lions, elephant seals.
William's visit angered Argentina, which claims the islands 290 miles (460 kilometers) off its coast and refers to them as Las Malvinas. His deployment added to growing tension in the run-up to the 30th anniversary of Argentina's April 1982 invasion.
