Prince Harry on naked Vegas pics: I let my family down

Posted on

Let’s take a break from discussing today’s big scandal to talk about last summer’s big scandal — namely, Prince Harry’s naked Vegas pics.

Though the incident didn’t prevent the royal from being named the world’s most eligible bachelor earlier this month, Harry still regrets it. “I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down,” he told People during a recent interview at his military base in Afghanistan. (You know, the context in which it makes most sense to talk about your nudie photos.)

That said, Harry also believes the pictures never should have become public in the first place: “At the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect.” Fair enough! His privacy wasn’t invaded as unquestionably as his sister-in-law’s was last summer — but  the prince has a point.

Kudos to Harry for having a mature reaction to the whole thing — and for coming up with the greatest explanation ever for why he was running around naked in Vegas in the first place: “It was probably a classic example of me probably being too much army, and not enough prince. It’s a simple case of that,” he said to People. We’ll have to assume he didn’t mean this Prince.
