Prince Harry's deployment with 3 Regiment Army Air Corps, allowed him to step back from the public eye, but speaking to reporters while stationed at Camp Bastion he admitted he had "let himself and his family down" after photos were published of the 28-year-old naked in a Vegas hotel suite.
But he also attacked the press for the way the story was reported:
“Yes people might look at it, going, it was letting off steam, it’s all understandable now you’re going out to Afghanistan – well the papers knew that I was going out to Afghan anyway.
"The way I was treated by them, I don’t think it’s acceptable. But hey.”
