Prince William, the second-in -line to the English throne, has joined an elite force of the British military on a secret training mission to fight pirates in the Caribbean. According to a report published in leading British tabloid ‘The Sun’, the 26-year-old Royal will experience how the Special Boat Service (SBS) unit deals with drug runners and pirates during his deployment. SBS troops carry out secret missions in the notorious Caribbean, making daring raids on suspicious vessels as well as gathering intelligence. Sources said that William flew to Barbados on Sunday and would spend at least ten days with the SBS. His training entails going on exercise in powerful speed boats that are used to capture sea bandits. “William will not face a conflict situation. It’s a training mission, not an operational one. It’s a first for the Royals and is only possible because he’s a trained soldier,” a military source was quoted as saying. William has already spent time with the RAF, Navy and Air Corps as is to train as a Navy search-and-rescue chopper pilot in January.
