Better late than never, right?

Over five months after photos of Prince Harry's naked escapades were released, he's decided that what happens in Vegas doesn't need to stay in Vegas. Speaking publicly about the scandal for the first time, he declared that "I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down."

While Prince Harry admitted his behavior was "too much Army and not enough prince," he also felt it was wrong that the photos were leaked in the first place. "At the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should have been a certain amount of privacy that one should expect," he said, according to MTV UK. "The papers knew I was going out to [Afghanistan] anyway, so the way I was treated from them, I don't think is acceptable."

However, he has plenty of reason to celebrate other than the scandal being, umm, behind him. The Ministry of Defense revealed yesterday that Prince Harry has returned home from a five-month deployment in Afghanistan, where he served as an Apache helicopter pilot with the Army Air Corps.
