FILE - March 31 2011 file photo of the Duke of Cambridge at the controls of a Sea King helicopter. Britain's Ministry of Defence has said that Prince William has arrived Thursday Feb. 2 2012 in the Falklands for a tour duty as an RAF search and rescue pilot. The prince's visit has riled Argentina, which claims the islands 290 miles (460 kilometers) off its coast that it calls Las Malvinas. Britain's defense ministry has insisted William's deployment is routine, but Argentina's foreign ministry likened the move to a conquistador's arrival.
