Lisa claimed: “I said to him, ‘what about being on Loose Women?’ He said ‘It’s the name, it has got an awful name’.”

She added: “I’m not sure how you can never have seen it – it is on every day.”

The 46-year-old and the Prince took part in a photoshoot for the album 1969: A Key To Change, a downloadable album to mark the Centrepoint charity’s 40th anniversary.

Sara Cox, Dan Gillespie and Jools Holland also took part in the shoot.

Prince Harry is terror target

Security around Prince Harry has been made tighter after it was revealed he was a top terrorist target.

The News of The World published an article reporting that Al Quaeda and Irish Millitants have Harry on their hit lists.

Harry is thought to be specially at risk because of his time served in Afghanistan and because of his party lifestyle.

The number of Royal guards around Harry has been doubled as the security risk level of attack against the Royal family is now at level 2, which is just below imminent.

Prince Harry has a gas on ‘hippy crack’

To the twentysomethings who use it at nightclubs and music festivals, it is known as ‘hippy crack’ for the euphoria it induces. For Prince Harry,  inhaling nitrous oxide — better known as laughing gas — is just a harmless diversion on a night of hard partying.

The gas, a propellant in aerosols and mildly anaesthetic, is the latest — and perfectly legal — recreational drug of choice for the middle classes.

Nevertheless, there have been at least two fatalities associated with the drug. A 23-year-old company director was found dead at his home in 2007 next to a large cylinder of the gas, and comedian Martin Cassidy died last year after he accidentally overdosed.

None of this seemed to have been of concern to Harry, 26, who happily inhaled several balloons of nitrous oxide provided at £1.50 a time at a charity fancy-dress party in Dulwich, South London, on Friday night.

Harry was a guest at the Into The Woods party to raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. The bash was organised by seven of Harry’s female friends, including Grace Pilkington( seen below) the former fancy of man-about-town Oscar Humphries, and interior designer Rose Uniacke’s daughter, Florence.

The Prince arrived at 8.30pm and was still partying — surrounded by a bevy of long-legged aristocratic beauties — at 5am. Judging by how much time he spent chatting up girls, Harry’s long-time on-off relationship with Chelsy Davy must be in ‘off’ mode at present.

Dressed as a lumberjack in a red-checked shirt and braces, he was overheard telling friends how much he loved being single. ‘It’s fantastic,’ he told one slim brunette.

Harry, training to be a helicopter pilot — last week he flew a £35million Apache helicopter solo for the first time — was seen inhaling the balloons several times during the evening.

Says a fellow partygoer: ‘He loves laughing gas. It is only mild and it gives you a two-minute high. But if you have had alcohol or other drugs, it can space you out for much longer. Some people pass out after inhaling it.’

Later, after complaining about the £6-a-bottle price of beer, Harry — accompanied by his best friend, Viscount Caldecote’s heir, Tom Inskip, 25 — invited some ladies to continue the party at St James’s Palace. ‘A couple of girls went off with them,’ I am told.

A spokesman for Clarence House says: ‘We don’t comment on private events.’

PRINCE WILLIAM TAUNTS PRINCE HARRY

Prince William sent little brother Harry a birthday dig at his skills as a chopper pilot – a card with a snap of an Apache helicopter.

And inside the home-made card clown prince William gloated: “Happy birthday – Still Number One.”

The card – for Harry’s 26th birthday on Wednesday – was brotherly teasing over William’s graduation as an RAF search and rescue chopper pilot.

Prince William sent little brother Harry a birthday dig at his skills as a chopper pilot – a card with a snap of an Apache helicopter.

And inside the home-made card clown prince William gloated: “Happy birthday – Still Number One.”

The card – for Harry’s 26th birthday on Wednesday – was brotherly teasing over William’s graduation as an RAF search and rescue chopper pilot.

On Friday, William became the first brother to go into active service as he joined C Flight at the RAF’s 22 Squadron at RAF Valley in Wales.

Harry still has weeks to go until he’s fully qualified to fly the Apache helicopter gunship with the Army Air Corps and head back to the front line in Afghanistan.

A pal said: “The competition goes back to when they were based at the combined services helicopter school at RAF Shawbury.

“William is claiming victory because he’s first to finish training.”

But high-flying Harry claims his skills as an Apache pilot – the most difficult chopper in the world to fly – will easily outstrip William’s.

The pal added: “He may be second but his training is tougher and his skills are greater. He is in the helicopter equivalent of an F1 racing car while William is running a Transit van.”

William, 28, is expected to remain in his post at RAF Valley for up to three years.

The friend added: “The posting is between 30 and 36 months and he is committed to that. He loves the fact he isn’t a royal ornament cutting ribbons and shaking hands.”

But his qualification is a blow for girlfriend Kate Middleton, 28, who did not join him at Friday’s passing-out ceremony.

William will have to quit the cottage they have been sharing in Wales and live on the base so he can respond to emergency calls.

Prince William is presented with search and rescue wings

It was a proud day for Flt Lt William Wales.
After 20 months of hard work and dedication, Prince William graduated as a search and rescue pilot in an informal ceremony held at his base, RAF Valley, in Anglesey on Friday.
Far from the pomp one might associate with royalty, the 28-year-old was honoured, along six fellow trainees, in a low-key affair,   during which the officers each received a certificate and squadron badge from their unit commander.

Wills said earlier that he was "really delighted" to become a fully-fledged search and rescue pilot.
"The course has been challenging but I have enjoyed it immensely.
"I absolutely love flying, so it will be an honour to serve operationally with the search and rescue force, helping to provide such a vital emergency service."
And his happiness at becoming a fully qualified pilot was evident at the ‘wings ceremony’.
He smiled broadly as he shook hands with his commander, who congratulated him on passing the tough training course.

St James Palace stressed beforehand that he wouldn’t have guests. So his girlfriend Kate Middleton wasn’t present and the popular royal celebrated with his peers.
With the training programme behind him, William will now join 22 Squadron, C Flight as a fully operational Sea King co-pilot in a team of four, and will spend the next three years in Wales flying rescue missions.
While he is on duty, the Prince – who will embark on his first 24-hour shift in a matter of weeks – will live on the base in readiness for any emergencies.
"You are exposed to your weaknesses and therefore have to adapt to them," said Wing Commander Peter Lloyd at RAF Valley.
"The crews have to work with you as a team – there is nowhere to hide in the crew of a helicopter."

The Queen’s grandson completed 70 hours of live flying and 50 hours of simulator training in order to learn how to manoeuvre the Sea King helicopter to the high standards expected.
Friday’s graduation was the culmination of seven-months of training with the Search and Rescue Training Unit and the Sea King Operational Unit.
William – whose younger brother Harry is learning to fly Apache helicopters – began training to become an S&R pilot back in January 2009.

Prince William graduates as search and rescue pilot

Prince William will start work as a search and rescue helicopter pilot for Britain’s Royal Air Force after graduating from training Friday, his office said.

William, second in line to the throne and the eldest son of Prince Charles and his deceased first wife Princess Diana, will co-pilot Sea King helicopters as part of a four-man crew based at RAF Valley in Anglesey on the north west coast of Wales.

"The course has been challenging, but I have enjoyed it immensely," said William, 28, who now has the rank of Flight Lieutenant.

"I absolutely love flying, so it will be an honour to serve operationally with the search and rescue Force, helping to provide such a vital emergency service."

The prince completed 70 hours of flying time augmented by 50 hours in a simulator as part of training to get to grips with the helicopter.

William’s younger brother Harry has served on the front line in Afghanistan with the British armed forces.
