Prince Charles could've done without the Prince Harry naked photos, but he has not come down too hard on his youngest son, sources say.
In fact, insiders say Harry wanted to publicly apologize for his Las Vegas hijinks but his father talked him out of it in a recent heart-to-heart.
“Of all the royal family, Charles was the most accepting of Harry’s behavior,” a source revealed. "He accepts that boys will be boys at times."
“In his younger years he was just as much a playboy as Prince Harry is now, so he’s more understanding when it comes to this sort of thing."
“While he told Harry to be a little more responsible with his decisions, he didn’t chastise him because he didn’t think he did anything wrong."
Charles, the son of Queen Elizabeth II, also believes that the sooner 27-year-old Harry re-joins his military unit in Afghanistan, the better.
“Charles said to Harry that he should go to Afghanistan as soon as he makes an appearance at the London Paralympics and join his rank."
"The quicker he goes out there, the sooner this will all blow over."
However, with the revelation of a Prince Harry nude video taken that night in the VIP suite at the Wynn Hotel, who knows if it will abate.
There are also rumors of hookers and cocaine, although Harry make-out partner Carrie Reichart tells of a mostly harmless, sexy time.
