NEWS.com.au — Britain’s Prince Harry has apologised after he was pictured at a fancy dress party wearing a Nazi soldier’s uniform.
The 20-year-old, who is third in line to the throne, is pictured on the front page of Britain’s The Sun newspaper in the beige uniform wearing a red armband emblazoned with a swastika.
In a statement, Harry said: “I am very sorry if I caused any offence or embarrassment to anyone. It was a poor choice of costume and I apologise.”
The Prince wore the outfit at a 22nd birthday party of a friend. Reports say there were 250 people at the party, which had a colonial and native theme.
Harry is the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II and the second son of the Prince of Wales, Charles, and Diana.
