Prince Harry: Sexy, Royal & Wild!
After An Over-the-Top Weekend in Vegas, the Bad-Boy Prince Finds Himself at the Center of a Naked-Picture Scandal. Why the Third in Line for the Throne Won't Stop Partying-and What His Family Really Thinks
And why not? That was just one wild chapter of what turns out to have been quite the eventful weekend for Prince Harry-as the world now knows thanks to photos, taken Aug. 17, that show a completely nude Harry and a female guest engaged in a game of strip billiards at Steve Wynn's Encore Hotel. Amid a flurry of embarrassing headlines, he returned to England, where, a source says, he has spent time at the Queen's Balmoral estate in Scotland with his father, Prince Charles. But the Queen and the royal family have rallied behind him. "He didn't do anything unlawful," says a Palace source. "What he did was entirely his own business."
Unless more unsavory news leaks, it's likely all will be forgiven-and Harry will continue partying. "Harry is a big boy now," says Dai Davies, former head of royal protection services at the Metropolitan Police. "He knows the rules, but he thinks, 'I'm third to the throne, and I'm going to do whatever I want.'" And he'll remain a girl magnet. "He's good-looking, charming," a friend says. "But being a prince helps. Being able to bring someone to a palace rather than an apartment scores extra points."
For now Harry, who recently joined Will and Kate as an ambassador at the London Olympics, is getting on with his royal life. The next glimpse the public will get of him will be at London's Paralympics in early September-and he'll be fully clothed.
