By now, practically everyone on the Internet has seen Prince Harry's nude pictures that surfaced in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, that includes his superiors in the British military. Harry, who enrolled in the Royal Military Academy in 2005, could be in big trouble over the leaked photos.
"He will be reprimanded. Officers should never bring the service into disrepute, whether on or off duty," a senior military officer told US Weekly. "This display of social misbehavior has raised eyebrows."
Since joining the military in 2005, Harry has served as a trained helicopter pilot and done a tour of duty in Afghanistan. The 27-year-old third in line for the throne spent a large chunk of 2011 in California training as a pilot.
While Harry is to be reprimanded for the nude pictures that surfaced, the military source assured Us that Harry "won't be dismissed" from the army. "This type of behavior is not expected of someone his age and rank. They will call him in when he gets back and want to talk to him about it," the source stated.
Prince Harry's nude photos first surfaced Tuesday night as the royal was leaving a "private holiday" in Las Vegas to return to London. The photos, which were leaked by TMZ, show Harry standing around naked after a round of strip billiards.
"Once in the room, things got WILD," TMZ reported. "With the group playing a game of strip pool that quickly escalated into full-on royal nudity."
Prince Harry wasn't sharing the nude spotlight alone though. The British royal can be seen with an unidentified female mate in the photos. One photo found on TMZ depicts Prince Harry cupping his crown jewels as the mysterious topless female hides behind him. The second photo shows Prince Harry from behind, hunched over the woman in front of him.
