Prince Harry was given orders to “bare his bum” in a military parade by a colour guard sergeant intent on playing a joke.
SERGEANT: “Cadet Wales, drop your pants and show me your backside!”
HARRY: “Are you serious?”
SERGEANT: “Just get them off, I want to see if it’s true.”
Harry drops pants halfway.
SERGEANT: “It’s OK, Wales, I’ll take your word for it!”
Rumor had it that Harry’s girlfriend’s name was tattooed on his arse.
CLASSMATE: “It was the funniest thing any of us have seen for ages. Everyone had heard the rumour but no one wanted to ask Harry if it was true.”
