(Newser) – Hail Britannica. The royal party boy has finally sloshed up along our shores—for some San Diego area bar hopping. "Harry Wales" took some time out from Apache helicopter training just a day after he arrived in California to hit not one but "several" night spots, reports the Los Angeles Times. One of Harry's watering holes was McP's Irish Bar and Grill in Coronado, just a block from the hotel where his ancestor Edward, the prince of Wales, supposedly first met Wallis Simpson, who eventually turned Ed's head so much that he renounced his crown. Harry seemed more interested in burgers and beers, witnesses reported.
