The young Royal behaved in appropriate way in his first public appearance since his scandalous Las Vegas party photos leaked two weeks ago.
The Prince was seen fully-clothed in a suit and tie â laughing with kids and getting hugs and kisses from one enthusiastic little girl at the WellChild Awards in London, reports The New York Daily News.
After a little six-year-old boy, Alex Logan, appeared on a British TV news report saying he would tell the prince, “I’m glad you’ve got your clothes on,” Harry preempted the youngster.
“You keep looking up at your Mum. It looks like you’re dying to say something but you’re worried she’ll tell you off,” the Royal said, wagging his finger at Logan. “I heard you were on ITV earlier and you said something cheeky but let’s not talk about that here.”
Logan, who suffers leukemia, was one of the children honored this week by the charity, which has had Prince Harry as a patron for many years.
However, the child did not end up making the cheeky comment when he met the prince. Harry himself drew some laughs from the audience when he said that he was “not shy.”
“All of you – children, families, nurses, doctors, carers, volunteers – are, quite frankly, too remarkable for me adequately to describe with mere words,” the Prince said. “But never one to be shy in coming forward, I’ll give it a go.”
“He was very calm and composed. You’d never know anything had happened,” an insider said of Harry, who has had the support of the palace since the revealing photos were published. “He was hugging every child.”
Harry, 27, was spotted naked with a mystery woman during a game of “strip billiards” in a Las Vegas hotel suite two weeks.
The PrinceÂ has been in Vegas winding down after a busy few weeks on royal duties at the Olympics.
One picture shows Harry, stark naked but for aÂ wristwatchÂ and a necklace. His hands cup his genitals. His face is turned toward the television set in the suite. And his body partially shields that of another person, also naked.
According toÂ CNN,a secondÂ photo showsÂ him hugging a woman from behind next to a pool table. Both are naked.
A woman who partied with Prince Harry later revealed the details of now-infamous night.
âHarry was already undressed. It was just crazy. He looked actually delirious. There was a pool table and he was playing air guitar with pool sticks.â
The woman continued: âWe kissed, he was naked at the time, and pretty open. He was a gentleman, but he was so wasted. The alcohol affected him. I was there for 15 to 20 minutes.â
âHe wasÂ screamingÂ out, âSomebody get me a glove! Iâm going to do a Michael Jackson impression!â
âHe would just randomly walk up to you and hug you. He was just really friendly and there were just really random naked hugs.â
The pictures of naked Prince are unlikely to please his Grandma.
âPrince William shows his cojones by rescuing stranded women in the ocean. Prince Harry shows his cojones by, well, showing his cojones,â tweeted Jennifer Burke with Canadaâs CTV network.
