These days, when most people think of Prince Harry They can put a picture of him in a clean suit giving a speech with his wife, Meghan Markle, They may think of her charity work or her divisive choice to relinquish her royal duties.
What people may not remember is that the Duke of Sussex had a reputation as a royal troublemaker of a different kind, and was the face of many scandals growing up. And now, her most abusive romance is coming back to bite her.
it never stays in vegas
In late summer 2012, Prince Harry went on a wild trip to Las Vegas, Nevada, where he certainly hasn’t shied away from all the evils of the city. After losing his clothes in an apparent game of strip-billiards, someone photographed a naked prince. Unexpectedly, the shocking photo made its way to TMZ Where tabloids flocked to him like vultures, implicating the future duke in royal scandal for centuries.
Flash forward ten years and Harry is a duke, husband, father, and philanthropist—but Vegas hasn’t changed. Now, a former exotic dancer by the name of Carrie Royale, who claims to be present at that ceremonial game is auctioning a royal gift: Prince Harry’s underwear.
According to Royale, she currently rests on Prince’s discarded undergarments and is now ready to cash in. It has announced that it aims to reach a bid of $1 million before the auction closes on September 30, and it has been reported that Bidding has already reached $250,000,
But why is she doing all this? Well, his answer might surprise you. “I am holding the auction to help remind him of his funny side, the side that his wife Meghan has tried to control,” Royale announced.
And as much as Harry probably wants to keep his nose out of crude exposition, Royale is making it difficult. The artist has announced that she will donate an undisclosed portion of the proceeds to the Duke’s charity, the Archwell Foundation.
A great story… if you can prove it
But we have an important question: how do we know if Is this Prince Harry’s underwear? From where we stand, Royale can auction off any old couple and no one will know the difference. Other than enlisting a forensic scientist’s colleague and a very cooperative member of the monarchy—both of which are certainly better uses for their time—there’s no way to confirm Royale’s wild tale.
Plus, we’re sure Harry will completely forget that night in Vegas. months after the incident Finally gave his perspective on the scam, “I probably let myself down,” lamented Harry. “I let my family down, I let other people down.”
But the prince made an interesting point that still applies to Royal’s actions after all these years. “At the end of the day, I was in a private sector and there has to be a certain amount of privacy … the way I was treated … I don’t think that’s acceptable.”
And it’s true—Harry is far from the first person to get carried away and do things he regrets. Her actions weren’t illegal, and while this is an unnatural look for a prince, it doesn’t bode well for those trying to humiliate her.
But this saga is not over. In the meantime, we’re still waiting to see if anyone will actually pay $1 million for a pair of underwear that may or may not belong to the sixth in line to the British throne.
