Prince Harry's naked Vegas photos have gone viral on the internet and have created quite a storm, but the playful British bad boy is not the only member of the royal family to get into trouble.

In fact, the list runs long, and is reminiscient of erstwhile scandals of the ultra secretive royals.

Here are some other incidents that probably had the royal office running around for cover, or as in Prince Harry's case- controlling publication.

Sarah Ferguson

The Duchess of York, also known as 'Fergie', has had her fair share of embarrassing moments. Ferguson was married to Prince Andrew, but the couple agreed to separate in January of 1992 after six years of marriage.

Fergie wasted no time and let her spirits run wild. She made headlines in August 1992, just seven months after their separation. The Duchess was photographed sunbathing topless with her former financial adviser, John Bryan, who seemed to be sucking on her toes, as the Telegraph reported.

The real truth saw the light of the day only in 2011, when Sarah Ferguson's current financial advisor told the Independent that Bryan was, as a matter of fact, licking the Duchess' toe.

"He was pretending to try the slipper on my foot and I was Cinderella...and I said, 'Oh, ha, ha, it doesn't fit because you are not the prince," Fergie added to the explanation.

That was not all.

Sarah Ferguson almost sold her sould to the devil.

Things got worse for Ferguson in 2010, when she was caught on tape offering an undercover News of the World reporter access to her former husband for almost $700,000, ABC News reported. As she later told Oprah, Fergie “was in the gutter at that moment.”

Princess Diana

Prince Harry's parents have been under the pulic radar more often than not for their colourful lives. Both his mother, the late Princess Diana, and his father, Prince Charles, were caught having affairs while they were still married.

Diana, who earned the nickname 'the People's Princess', 'Lady Diana' for being one of the most down-to-earth royals, reportedly had a minimum of at least five affairs, including one with her polo-playing friend James Hewitt which she admitted to in 1995.
