From the drugs drama to that Vegas incident, these are five things you’re unlikely to read in Harry’s new memoir

PRINCE Harry has announced he is releasing an “intimate” memoir about the “experiences that have helped shape him” in his life. 

But will the book give the full picture about the royal’s history – including mentioning his infamous Las Vegas misdemeanour and his stint in drug addiction rehab?

Harry said of the memoir, which is to be released next year: “I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”

It will be ghost-written by JR Moehringer and will provide “the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.”

So will we see the following scandalous moments featured?

Las Vegas 

Prince Harry hit headlines for all the wrong reasons during a 2012 Las Vegas trip, when he was pictured covering his privates during a game of strip billiards.

Speaking on Armchair Expert podcast to Dax Shepard, Prince Harry addressed the awkward moment saying: "At least I wasn't running down the strip, stripping or naked.”

During the infamous trip, Harry is said to have racked up a bill of over £30,000 while partying, but never paid it, according to biographer Katie Nicholl on Channel 5's Spending Secrets of the Royals.

When it came around to settling his expenses, Katie said: "Steve Wynn, the owner of the hotel Harry was staying in, just wiped the slate clean."

Drugs scandal

The party Prince was caught indulging in alcohol and cannabis during the summer of 2001 while his father was away, and would host parties at Highgrove.

Charles handled the situation by sending Harry to rehab clinic Featherstone Lodge in Peckham, and he was grounded during the Christmas holidays.

St James's Palace later confirmed that Harry had "experimented with the drug on several occasions" but said he was not a "regular" user.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, opened up about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him after the death of mother Princess Diana in the documentary The Me You Can't See.

He admitted to taking drugs and regularly "drinking a week's worth of alcohol in one day" to "mask the pain" of his mum Diana's death.

The Nazi outfit

Prince Harry was strongly condemned after he was spotted wearing a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika armband, at a party.

The prince, then aged 20, later apologised for his actions.

Prince William had gone with his younger brother to Olympic triple gold medallist Richard Meade’s son’s 22nd colonial-themed birthday in January 2005 where William chose an animal outfit and Prince Harry chose the khaki-coloured uniform.

The Duke was later photographed wearing the uniform at a party causing "public outrage," according to royal biographer Robert Lacey.

The Sun broke the news on January 14, 2005, along with a photo of Harry in the uniform holding a cigarette and a drink, under the headline “Harry the Nazi”.

Schoolteacher tribunal

In 2005, a former art teacher of Harry’s at Eton College won her case for unfair dismissal against the school and was awarded £45,000 in damages.

The teacher accused Prince Harry of cheating in his A-level coursework and she said she had been asked to ghost-write accompanying text for his project.

The employment tribunal found no evidence of cheating, but it accepted the prince had received help in the project, which he needed to secure his place at Sandhurst.

Cadet slur

Harry apologised in 2009 for calling fellow Sandhurst colleague Ahmed Raza Khan a “r*ghead” and “our little p*** friend” in a video that he filmed himself.

Harry’s slur came to light in a video leaked in 2009. The footage showed the prince three years earlier as a 21-year-old officer cadet during a military exercise in Cyprus.

Clarence House issued an immediate apology for the video and the Ministry of Defence said the Armed Forces had zero tolerance of racism.
