Britain's Prince William treated his Army friends to an all-expense paid trip to the movies. William, 24, spent about $157 on tickets and snacks for nine of his pals to watch "Ocean's 13" at Cineworld in Weymouth, near his Dorset barracks.
The prince and his pals scoffed ice-cream and popcorn while watching the hit heist movie, which stars Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Stephanie Ward, 21, who served William, told Britain's The People newspaper: "He was just like any other lad on a night out."
This was not the first time William has been spotted treating his Army friends. Earlier this month, he visited an ASDA store and splashed out about $1,700 on alcohol and snacks for a barracks party. William, who was dressed in jeans and a baseball cap, pushed his own trolley and loaded it with Pimms, beer, wine and spirits.
Meanwhile, William's finances will be boosted on his 25th birthday this Thursday, when he becomes legally entitled to the income accrued on the $12.8 million left to him in his late mother Princess Diana's will.
William is expected to have unrestricted access to between $492,800 and $591,360 a year, according to financial experts.
