During his return trip to Las Vegas, Harry finds himself embroiled in another scandal when photos leak of the Prince partying naked alongside a bevy of women in his private hotel suite. Believed to be taken during a game of strip billiards, Buckingham Palace confirms that the photos are of the third in line to the throne, but says only that Harry "is taking some private time in the U.S."
Weeks after his scandal, Harry returns to the frontlines in Afghanistan, beginning a four-month tour of duty as the co-pilot of an Apache attack helicopter and drawing attention from the Taliban. "Prince Harry, like any soldier, considers it a great honor to represent his country in Her Majesty's armed forces wherever it chooses to deploy him," a royal spokesperson says.
After a brief courtship over the summer of 2012, Prince Harry rekindles his romance with model and society girl Cressida Bonas, whom he met through his cousin, Princess Eugenie. The couple's relationship takes center stage after the pair is caught cuddling during a ski trip to Verbier, Switzerland.
Almost a year after his Las Vegas misadventure, Harry returns to the United States for a weeklong tour to bring awareness to the sacrifice and rehabilitation of servicemen and women in the armed forces. "Thank you for a wonderful week. I have witnessed the extraordinary generosity of the people of this great nation," says the prince during his last stop in Greenwich, Conn., where he participated in a polo match that benefitted his charity Sentebale. The young royal also visited Washington, D.C., Colorado, New York and New Jersey on his trip.
After dating her for nearly two years, Harry splits from girlfriend Cressida Bonas, whom he met through cousin Princess Eugenie. "This is an amicable decision and they are very much still the best of friends but they have decided to go their separate ways," a source tells PEOPLE.
