Prince Harry Responds to Naked Vegas Picture Scandal
Back in August of last year, Prince Harry was caught on camera in the nude in a Vegas hotel room after losing a game of strip poker. The photos went uber-viral, and Harry was roundly (and probably unfairly) shamed.
Now, the prince is speaking out about the incident for the first time. Talking to reporters recently, he described his antics as being "a classic example of me probably being too much army and not enough prince," reports TMZ.
But despite his mea culpa, he adds that it wasn't quite fair that the photos were taken in the first place, nor was how he was treated by the media.
"At the end of the day I was in a private area and there should be a certain about of privacy one should expect...it was letting off steam, it's all understandable, you're going out to Aghanistan, well the papers knew I was going out to Afghan anyway, so the way I was treated from them, I didn't think was acceptable."
