Prince Harry has been given the green light to deflower the maidens of a small US town, after the town manager explained reports Cap'n Windsor had been warned off "fornicating" as "a total fabrication".

The UK tabs were cock-a-hoop yesterday about reports that the mayor of Gila Bend, where Harry is completing a weapons course, had warned the wannabe chopper pilot away from the town's womenfolk.

While Gila Bend is miles away from anywhere in the Arizona desert, the townsfolk were clearly familiar with old English customs such as droit de seigneur, and were already loading their shotguns to fend off the famously rambunctious royal.

"Some of the dads won’t take too kindly to a prince fornicating the night away and drinking into the small hours," Mayor Ron Henry reportedly said. "It is a very quiet town with a lot of good Christian people. This isn’t a party town.”

He also said, somewhat cryptically, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and we have some very pretty girls here."

However, according to the Daily Beast/Newsweek, the reports are "a total fabrication".

“The mayor is very upset about all this," town manager Rick Buss told the Beast. "We’re honoured to have the prince here, and we will respect his privacy.”

Buss said it was the reporter who'd brought up the subject of "fornicating" in a chat with the trusting mayor. "The reporter started asking him things like, ‘Oh, what about if Prince Harry went chasing after one of your daughters?’”

As it happens, Harry appears to have already had a taste of the local delights, already leaving one local girl gasping: "Thank you, and thank you for choosing this place to come and eat."

In fact, said Josie Villagas, a waitress at Gila Bend's Little Italy Restaurant, Harry said it was "the best pizza to eat in the world". ®
