While it's naked photos emerging from Prince Harry's wild Las Vegas holiday that are dominating the headlines this week, it is by no means the first time that the third-in-line to the throne has come under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons – earning him a reputation as a "wild child" of the royal family.
We take a look back at five other Harry scandals.
While he was still a schoolboy at Eton, Prince Harry came under fire after he admitted to smoking marijuana and drinking when he was 17 – earning him the nickname "Harry Pothead" in the British tabloids. The palace confirmed that Harry had "experimented with the drug on several occasions", but would not describe his use as "regular". Sources revealed Harry's "experimentation" happened during a two-month period in 2001, when Harry had the family's Highgrove estate to himself. In January 2002, his father Prince Charles sent Harry and a friend to visit the Featherstone Lodge Rehabilitation Centre in South London for a day, in order to show them the effects of drug-taking.
In October 2004, a 20-year-old Harry was mobbed by paparazzi photographers as he left a London nightclub at 3am. According to E! News, Harry retaliated after being hit in the face with a camera, and went after the offending photographer. Clarence House released a statement which claimed that "in pushing the camera away, we understand that the photographer incurred a cut lip". The photographer, on the other hand, claimed that Harry "burst out" and "lunged" at him while he was taking pictures.
Two years later, Harry got into a similar situation outside another London nightclub – this time chasing a photographer before falling down in the street. A photographer said at the time: "He obviously doesn’t like the paparazzi. If he wasn't drunk, he'd have kept his balance" and described it as "one of those things. He came out of the club, they got entangled, and he lost his footing. The guy’s on a night out, he’s going to war, good luck to him I'd say."
"Harry the Nazi"
Prince Harry caused a global stir after being photographed dressed as a German soldier and donning a swastika for a friend's "Colonial and Native"-themed party in January 2005. Prince Charles' communications team immediately issued a public apology on Harry's behalf in a statement that read: "I am very sorry if I have caused any offense or embarrassment to anyone. It was a poor choice of costume and I apologise."
According to Us Weekly, Harry's brother William was also at the party — dressed as a lion.
Harry's reputation for being a wild child escalated when The Sun claimed to have obtained footage of a 23-year-old Harry snorting a capful of vodka. In the video, Harry is reportedly seen swigging from the bottle, spitting it out on to the bottle cap, and inhaling the shot through one nostril as his friends cheered him. His spokesperson refused to comment on the scenario, saying only that it was a "private matter".
"Our little Paki friend"
In 2009, a video taken of Harry three years prior was leaked, in which the prince was clearly heard describing his fellow Army colleagues by racist or derogatory names. On the footage, which was shot while Harry was training in Cyprus, Harry can be referred to one colleague as "our little Paki friend" and to another as "a raghead". Now-Prime Minister David Cameron spoke out against Harry's utterances, calling them "unacceptable". Harry's team quickly issued an apology, saying that he understood how "offensive this term can be, and is extremely sorry for any offence his words might cause". The palace also said that Harry had "used the term without malice and as a nickname" and "was in no way seeking to insult his friend".
