Prince Harry has been deployed to Afghanistan to begin a four-month tour of duty for the British military. No, it has nothing to do with his naked photos.

The 27-year-old arrived today at Camp Bastion in Afghanistan, according to reports, to begin work as an Apache co-pilot and gunner within 10 days.

A rep for the military released a statement saying:

Captain Wales

"Captain Wales (Prince Harry) is a serving soldier and a qualified Apache pilot having completed the Apache Conversion to Role course this year."

"As such, and after further flying experience, Captain Wales was deployed along with the rest of the squadron as part of a long-planned and scheduled deployment."

The squadron will "provide support to ISAF and Afghan forces operating in Helmand."

Refuting rumors that his nude exploits with Carrie Reichert played a role, the rep said: "It goes without saying that one doesn't deploy as an Apache pilot to Afghanistan at short notice. Prince Harry's time in Las Vegas was his last break before the frontline."

We wish Captain Wales the best and hope for his safe return.

The Royal family may be unhappy with Prince Harry these days, but the hottest boy band on the planet has no problem with the antics of their fellow handsome Brit.

Asked by E! News about the naked Prince Harry photos that cropped up a couple weeks ago, members of One Direction stood firmly erect in the young man's corner.

Louis Tomlinson said the incident actually makes Harry a "strong figure because he's real," while Niall Horan kept his viewpoint simple: "He's a 20-odd year-old guy doing what he wants."

Of course, Liam Payne recognized that Prince Harry is not just any 20-odd year-old guy.

"A lot of people would have gone away on holiday and whatever, it doesn't matter for them. For him, it matters," said Payne.

The hullabaloo over the nude pictures appears to be close to blowing over, although Carrie Reichert recently spoke out and extended the story when she spilled details from the night in question.

Still, at the end of the day, Harry is young, handsome and single. Until Pippa Milddleton comes to her senses and dates the guy, can you blame him for having a bit of fun?

A fully clothed Prince Harry surfaced for the first time since his Las Vegas shenanigans went public and viral, stepping out for the WellChild Awards.

On September 3, two weeks after his boozy, naked makeout session with Carrie Reichert and possible others in Sin City, Harry was seen in London.

Wearing a navy blue suit and a red tie, the smiling Brit, who is a Patron of WellChild, greeted officers on his way to the InterContinental Hotel.

Clothed Prince Harry

The event is held annually to honors the doctors and nurses who care for young people. Harry is an annual attendee, and vowed to attend despite the scandal.

There are rumors of a nude video, as well as cocaine use and hookers being present that night in the VIP suite, but so far, none of that has been proven.

Just some mildly embarrassing, but generally harmless shots of Harry in the buff.

Harry has yet to make a comment about his wild weekend, and may not do so; Prince Charles, his father, reportedly told him an apology isn't necessary.

Since the Prince Harry naked photos surfaced a week and a half ago, he's been laying very low, but is determined to honor commitments such as today's.

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."

Prince Harry and Prince Charles

“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.

Carrie Reichert, a 32-year-old British-born San Diego resident, is the first to speak out in an interview about Prince Harry's wasted and naked night in Vegas.

Reichert partied in the Wynn's VIP Las Vegas hotel suite on the night of the now-infamous Prince Harry naked billiards game, she revealed to the Mirror.

She even made out with the royal for a bit.

"It wasn't romantic, just fun," Carrie Reichert said. "It was a drunken fumble. He was a gentleman, but he was so wasted. The alcohol affected him."

Prince Harry Hair

She was chosen with nine other young women to join the party before the third in line to the throne, 27, personally picked her to be alone with him.

"We kissed, he was naked at the time, and pretty open," she is reported as saying.

"I was born in England and I'm pretty familiar with the royal family, but I didn't know the guys he was with ... I was the only one who knew who he was."

"Everybody else was like, 'Who's that?' And I'm like, 'Oh my God, that's Prince Harry.'"

She says earlier, a member of the prince's entourage approached her to see if she'd like to join the penthouse party. "I'm not going to pass up an opportunity to party with Prince Harry," she recalls as her response to the "random" invitation.

There was no security check at the already-raging party.

The Paralympics kicked off in London this week, with Prince William and Kate Middleton on hand for the opening ceremony. As for the black sheep of the family?

No, Prince Harry was not present. At least not yet.

Queen Elizabeth II (not wearing a hoodie) became the first British monarch to ever open the games. In a statement before the ceremony she said:

Kate Middleton and Prince Harry

Kate and Harry at the 2012 London Olympics earlier this summer.

“It is with tremendous pride that the people of London and the United Kingdom welcome the world to the London 2012 Paralympic Games."

"The Games are returning to the country where they first began more than 60 years ago. We look forward to celebrating the uplifting spirit which distinguishes the Paralympic Games from other events, drawing on Britain's unique sporting heritage.”

Joining themwere British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha, Princess Anne, Prince Edward, and London Mayor Boris Johnson.

Very obviously missing was a certain Paralympic GB Ambassador. With rumors of a Prince Harry nude video circulating, he expected to sit it out.

The embattled Prince will make his first public appearance since the scandal when he watches swimmers in the aquatic center Monday, however.

Because we know you're wondering: Kate Middleton wore a shimmery, ivory and gold coat dress by Danish Label DAY Birger et Mikkelsen.

If you thought the Prince Harry naked photos were scandalous, imagine if a rumored video taken that wild night in Las Vegas were to get out.

The naked romp in Las Vegas was indeed caught on video, sources say, and that could plunge the royal scandal to new, unprecedented depths.

“There is a video of Harry partying naked with women," says a source. "There have been some very quiet inquiries to see how much the video is worth.

“If the video goes public this could be the biggest Royal scandal ever.”

  • Prince Harry Cover

Rumors surfaced in the Las Vegas Review Journal last week that the Prince Harry nude scandal was far from over and that another revelation was imminent.

“The video has not been shopped around yet, its existence is being kept as discreet as possible,” the source close to the situation said. “With all the attention the photos got, people with the video know it could be worth a fortune.”

"Things got pretty crazy in Prince Harry's suite that night. Everyone was drinking, and drugs were also being used by some people."

"Some people were snorting cocaine."

That, of course, is a double-edged sword, as it could incriminate others: "Things got pretty crazy at that's exactly why no one there has come forward on the record."

"They don't want to be implicated for any illegal activities."

Prince Harry has reportedly been dumped by his new girlfriend Cressida Bonas after she was devastated by his naked hotel room antics in Las Vegas.

Bonas has told friends the pictures of Prince Harry nude and cavorting with women in Sin City made her realize she has no future with the royal.

Cressida, daughter of 1960s cover girl Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, began dating him earlier this summer and even went on vacation with him.

Before Harry went to the U.S. for military training this summer, Cressida felt convinced she had a future with William's younger brother. No longer.

“Harry has blown it,” a friend of hers said today. “Cressida saw a future with Harry but then he went and embarrassed her like he did in Vegas."

“He clearly isn’t as serious about her as he had claimed to be and it’s highly embarrassing. He’s ruined his chances now. She’s humiliated.”

As a result, she's severed all ties to him, The Sun reports.

Cressida Bonas' decision to send Harry packing comes as he braces himself for some serious reprimanding from both the army and his family.

It may not be over, either. One of the women who saw Prince Harry naked is preparing to go on TV in America within the “next few days”.          

She’s even vowed to take a lie-detector test should anyone question her version of events and has hired a PR “fixer” for her media tour.

Sounds like a real classy babe.

Many people think the Prince Harry nude pictures are being blown out of proportion, but the royal himself takes the situation very seriously.

"He feels he has let himself down and is very disappointed with the fact that he allowed it to happen," a source tells the U.K.'s Sunday Times.

The paper also says it's unlikely Harry will attend the Paralympic Games' opening as planned, and will keep a VERY low profile for some time.

Prince Harry Photograph

That includes toning dialing down his presence online. In the wake of the Prince Harry naked pic leaks, he frozen his anonymous Facebook account as well.

"Because all of the Vegas drama he's shut down his account," a source explains.

"So no more Facebook for Harry for a while. He'll probably come back online in the future, but, for now, he's been advised to go offline."

"It's best that he keeps a low profile for the moment."

The 27-year-old will resurface a bit this week when he reports back to Royal Air Force Wattisham base, however. He may be reprimanded by the army.

After Rupert Murdoch's newspaper controversially published the pictures of Prince Harry naked in Vegas, the publisher urged the public to lay off the royal.

"Prince Harry. Give him a break," he Tweeted. "He may be on the public payroll one way or another, but the public loves him, even to enjoy Las Vegas."

"Only lesson for Prince Harry: avoid playmates with cameras!"

Sun Prince Harry Cover

Harry was infamously photographed partying in the nude in a Las Vegas hotel room last weekend, and the photos hit the web via TMZ late Tuesday.

Murdoch's The Sun ignored a warning from the palace and a regulatory ruling on Friday morning by printing the naked Harry pics on its front pages.

The cover, like Harry himself, was cheeky. So to speak.

Part of Murdoch's justification for running the Prince Harry nude shot - aside from basic freedom of the press - was that it's already all over the web.

How could they demand he not print something everyone had already seen or could with a single Google search? It just didn't make any sense ... to him.

If there are more pics to come, which has been rumored, don't expect he will hold back in that case either, but at least we know how he'd vote in our poll:

Prince Harry ...
