Just one week after Prince Harry was dressed-down in nude photos from his Las Vegas vacation, he appeared dressed-up in a suit for a video lauding the Paralympic Torch Relay, pretty much ignoring his much-publicized naked antics.
“On August 29th, the Paralympics will begin and we can look forward to a spectacular showcase of sport, full of unique passion, drama and emotion,” Prince Harry said in the video. He also described the road ahead for athletes in the Paralympics. “This is their moment and an opportunity for us to applaud and thank them for their achievements….good luck to all of our torchbearers. We are very proud to support you in your journey.”
Though Prince Harry has yet to address the nude photos in any capacity, various reports have him facing quite a metaphorical lashing for his Vegas getaway. The Telegraph reports that, among other things, the prince is facing another dressing-down, this time from his commanding officer (in case you didn’t know, Prince Harry is an officer in the Army).
“Harry will be reminded that he is the holder of the Queen’s Commission and with that comes a certain responsibility, which also extends into private life,” said a source close to military officials. “Officers are expected to set a certain standard, and under Queen’s Regulations, they can be disciplined for behaviour which brings discredit on the Army. Some may see Harry’s behaviour as letting off a bit of steam – others in the Army will not.”
“It would be the same for any officer,” continued the source.
Plus, there are rumors that there might be more photos and a video floating around out there somewhere. Add that to an offer to star in a pornographic film, and Prince Harry might be looking at more than a military “dressing-down.”
