Prince Harry will return to “business as usual” this week as he attempts to shake off the furore after naked pictures emerged of him during his infamous Las Vegas holiday.
The Prince, who is an ambassador for the Team GB Paralympics squad, will attend a series of Paralympic Games events over the coming weeks before returning to his job as an Army helicopter pilot.
The 27-year-old is not expected to change any of his official commitments in the light of the controversy over his drunken weekend in Las Vegas, which resulted in photographs of him playing a game of “strip billiards” being published around the world.
“It is just business as usual. There are no changes to his programme at all,” the Telegraph quoted a Royal source as saying.
St James’s Palace will announce on Tuesday which Paralympics events Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall will attend.
“He will be watching the events, meeting the athletes and their families, and celebrating Team GB’s success,” a St James’s Palace spokesman said.
“He has got a number of engagements lined up for the next few weeks, which will be announced in the usual way.
“Then his focus remains on training ahead of the possibility of deploying to Afghanistan later this year.”
