Prince Harry’s best “bad boy” moments

From wild child to the armed forces and now a passionate charity crusader, we relive Prince Harry’s former bad boy days and look back at his cheekiest moments.

From wild child to the armed forces, there are many facets to Prince Harry and he is more than happy to embrace them all!

During Harry’s tour of Lesotho and South Africa, the 31-year-old managed to fit in some public ribbing of his big brother, William.

Speaking to the at-risk youths, he said: “If you’ve got an older brother that’s not into gangs, that’s a huge positive. Older brothers are supposedly the cool ones. I’m a younger brother but I’m much cooler than my older brother.” And it’s not the first time he’s taken (playful) fire at Wills… Check out the time he spoke about William “baldness”.

Harry may have followed in his royal family’s footsteps by attending the prestigious Eton College, but that in no way stopped him from regularly playing up.

During high school, Harry loved to party. A senior official at St James’s Palace confirmed that Prince Charles had been aware of his son’s drug-taking and was concerned. “We acknowledge that on several occasions last summer, Prince Harry experimented with cannabis. It is not that he had or has a serious problem, but he did take the drug.” And who could forget those naked photos of Prince Harry partying in Las Vegas in 2012?

But he’s come a long way since those days. With a former bad boy rep, it’s no wonder the ginger Prince gets reactions like this…

But that in no means stops Harry from being a MAJOR flirt! In fact, he’s in no rush to find a girlfriend and is enjoying single life.

Not only a flirt, Harry can always deliver major sass! Like the time he tricked Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt into losing a race…

Going against royal protocol, Charles’ youngest son set up a secret Facebook account under the pseudonym of Spike Wells. Sadly, Spike had to shutdown his page after the infamous Vegas scandal.

Who doesn’t love a man on a motorbike!? His fearless streak saw him succeed through the ranks in the armed forces.

Harry eventually traded in his bad boy ways for the army. After a decade long service, he now is focusing on his charity work… But that doesn’t mean we can’t remember his camouflage days.
