Prince Harry: Hero of the Rooftop Bar Pool
Prince Harry
No stranger to creating a splash in a swimming pool in his own right, Prince Harry proved himself a gentleman during a poolside incident in California last weekend – and one young beauty even got his towel to show for it.

In the U.S. for his military helicopter training, the royal army captain and his buddies were watching an England rugby match on TV at the rooftop pool of San Diego's Andaz Hotel, when someone got the bright idea to toss Lindsay Swagerty into the water, fully clothed.

"Prince Harry was the first to notice me when I got out and he wrapped his towel around me to keep me warm," Swagerty, 23, said after her unexpected plunge, reports Britain's Sun tabloid. "It was such a gentlemanly thing to do."

The office worker not only kept Harry's towel as a souvenir, but the next night she and her friends met up with him and his friends for beer and shots, says the newspaper.

Says Swagerty: "He is probably the most charming man I'll ever meet."
