Top 5 Un-Royal Prince Harry Moments


From casual drugs to questionable outfits. Welcome to WatchMojo UK and today we’re counting down our picks for the top 5 UnRoyal Prince Harry moments.

He’s one of the most well liked and down-to-earth members of the Royal Family, but Prince Harry has stirred his fair share of controversy, too. What would Meghan Markle make of these unflattering entries in the Prince’s well-documented past?

#5. Making Racial Slurs

While the media tends to blow many of Harry’s errors out of proportion, this was based on leaked video footage. With Harry filming other soldiers during a trip to Cyprus, he clearly uses racist terms as part of his narration. Unsurprisingly, a public apology was later delivered, with Harry’s language explained as ‘army talk’ - but that excuse didn’t wash with his critics.

#4. Smoking Pot

While weed laws remain a contentious issue, Harry rocked the Royals when he revealed that he had tried a toke as a teenager. Prince Charles’ parenting went beyond a slap on the wrist, though. He sent Harry off for a day in rehab, where the Prince met other drug users and was shown how drug-taking can damage lives. Naturally, the papers took potshots whenever possible.

#3. Fighting the Paparazzi

In fairness, if anyone is entitled to ill-feeling toward the paparazzi, it’s Prince Harry. He has previously stated that he blames them for his mother’s death, and perhaps that’s what fueled this bust-up with a photographer outside a nightclub in 2004. Harry’s representative reckons he was hit in the face by a camera - the snapper says the attack was unprovoked. The jury’s out on this one.

#2. Going Nude in Vegas

This must have had The Queen spitting out her tea! On another drunken escapade in 2012, Harry was snapped in the altogether, in Las Vegas, in the midst of strip-pool. Clearly the Prince wasn’t very good at the game, because he’s stark naked with the crown jewels completely exposed. And as if that wasn’t enough, he’s seen up close and personal with other naked players. What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas - unless you’re a world famous royal.

#1. Dressing as a Nazi

A royal gaffe so gargantuan, you have to wonder what Harry was thinking when he made this decision. We finish in 2005, and another fancy dress faux-pas, but with much darker undertones than Harry’s previous outfits. He went Nazi for this private party, sporting a swastika armband as part of the costume. Criticism came from all corners, while the look was listed as a new low, and an example of exceptionally poor judgment by the Prince.
