As you may remember, the whole world was treated to a royal scandal last year after the hard-partying prince—and “World’s Most Eligible Bachelor”—ended up having some very embarrassing naked photos of himself leaked and distributed all over celebrity gossip websites and magazines following a wild Vegas romp last August.
Speaking to reporters in a series of interviews conducted in Afghanistan, where is currently deployed with the Royal Air Force, Prince Harry opened up about his feelings over the scandal:
“I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down… But 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.”
“It was probably a classic example of me probably being too much army, and not enough prince. It’s a simple case of that.”
The prince then explains that there are three versions of Prince Harry, and he cannot always stick to the version that everyone expects him to be. He shared:
“One in the army, one socially in my own private time, and then one with the family and stuff like that. So there is a switch and I flick it when necessary.”
Still, though he accepts responsibility for his actions, Prince Harry places some of the blame on the media and how they handled the scandal. He said:
“The newspapers knew that I was going away to Afghanistan, yet still published the photos… So the way I was treated by them I don’t think is acceptable.”
What can you say about the prince’s comments?
