London: Prince Harry is apparently in for a stiff lecture from a senior officer – known in the Army as an “interview without coffee” – for bringing the Army into disrepute after his wet and wild weekend in Croatia.
The third in line to the throne was snapped soaking wet after jumping fully clothed into a pool at a club in Hvar during his leave from the Army.
He downed shots of vodka, whisky and tequila, danced barefoot and chatted up girls in the exclusive Veneranda nightclub until dawn.
“There will be words. This is customary when a captain’s behaviour raises eyebrows,” the Daily Star quoted a royal aide as saying.
“In a few weeks he will go to a base in Arizona as part of his training with the elite of the elite. He has to remember who he is and what his job is and learn how to behave.
“The Prince was on leave but this behaviour demonstrates that there is a question over his judgment.
“Harry knows he is going to be photographed and has to use a bit of common sense,” the aide stated.
A senior military insider said the snaps had brought the Army into disrepute.
He said: “You can’t be flying 60million pounds state-of-the-art Apache helicopters as an Army officer one minute then looking like something out of The Inbetweeners the next.
