Washington: Prince Harry, who was snapped frolicking around nude during a recent Las Vegas trip, is said to be very disappointed with his antics.
The snaps, which saw the prince completely naked with a mystery girl, have caused considerable uproar within the royal family.
"He feels he has let himself down and is very disappointed with the fact that he allowed it to happen," People quoted a source as telling UK`s Sunday Times.
The magazine also claimed that it`s unlikely the 27-year-old will attend the opening ceremony of the Paralympic Games this week as originally planned.
Meanwhile, Rosa Monckton, a close friend of the royal`s late mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, has given her backing to the Prince.
"He is absolutely entitled to a private life. He has a full-time job and he is a full-time serving member of the armed forces. They all need to let their hair down,” she said.
Although she admitted that the young royal is "guilty of a lack of judgment”, she defended him saying: "But that`s young men for you … It`s classic of a young officer. They work very hard and they play very hard. It`s a very simple thing."
