Prince Harry is back in Britain and back to the lifestyle to which the tabloids are accustomed. The third in line to the throne – soon to be fourth, what with the arrival of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s baby this summer – has just returned from a 20-week deployment in Afghanistan, where he gave interviews in which he talked about killing Taliban fighters.
Prince Harry not only works hard, though, he apparently plays hard. Last year his alleged antics in Las Vegas —including reports of a swimming race against Olympic Gold medalist Ryan Lochte and blurry photos of Prince Harry partying naked in his VIP suite with a group of similarly-unclothed girls — made headlines worldwide.
Upon landing in Britain last week, Harry gave an interview where he spoke about wanting to spend some quality time with his family, including his brother and sister-in-law. “I really am longing to catch up with people behind closed doors – you guys aren’t invited,” he told the media.
Harry was reportedly seen in a pub in Fulham, West London, on Saturday afternoon, which he didn’t leave until 9pm. After a stop at a supermarket, he attended a house party that he didn’t leave until 10am the following morning, as his protection officers waited in a car outside.
The Prince is expected to be on leave for the next four to five weeks.
