Harry attacks decision to publish nude Vegas photos

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.
