Is Prince Harry Teaching Kate Middleton To Fly?

Kensington Palace won't be drawn on today's reports that Kate is learning to fly

Maybe this accounts for the gray hairs.

Kate Middleton told a group of army pilots yesterday that she's learning to fly a plane - which has prompted the terrifying speculation that she may be being taught by Prince Harry.

Kate told a group of RAF officers during her London Poppy Day walkabout yesterday that she had been taking flying lessons, specifying that she had been learning in a fixed-wing aircraft, which her brother-in-law Harry knows how to fly.

William is solely a helicopter pilot, but rules would anyway prevent the two of them being in a plane at the same time.

According to a report in the Daily Mail today, Kate, whose father was a dispatcher for British Airways and mother was an airline hostess, told the pilots: 'My grandfather  flew planes.  I've had a few lessons on fixed wing.'
