Bad boy Prince Harry has a past that is far from squeaky clean!
As OKmagazine.com has reported, Prince Harry released an official statement today condemning racist and sexist attacks on his African-American girlfriend, Meghan Markle.
However, the prince has a sordid history of his own when it comes to race relations!
Back in 2005, Prince Harry attended a "colonials and natives" costume party dressed as a Nazi, just two weeks prior to Holocaust Memorial Day.
After a swift backlash, he said he was sorry "if" he offended anyone.
"I'm very sorry if I have caused any offense," his statement read. "It was a poor choice of costume, and I apologize."
That was not the only racial incident reported in his past. In 2009, he filmed a video in which he referred to his South Asian military comrades as "raghead" and "our little Paki friend Ahmed" — both considered slurs.
The prince's spokesperson later explained, "Prince Harry used the term raghead to mean Taliban or Iraqi insurgent," and that "Paki" was Ahmed's nickname.
Years later, in 2012, Harry was photographed naked in Las Vegas playing strip billiards with six women prior to his deployment to Afghanistan.
The prince later explained the incident, saying, “It was probably a classic case of me being too much army and not enough prince.”
However, despite his wild and at times offensive past, Harry has changed a lot over the years, not only with his fierce admonishment of racist trolls, but with his work.
Walking in his mother's footsteps, Harry has since dedicated a great deal of time to charity, focusing on helping veterans returning home from battle.
