On his first weekend back in the UK, Prince Harry is reminding the world why and how he earned the title "The Party Prince." According to reports, the 28-year-old Apace helicopter pilot was celebrating his homecoming into the not-so-wee hours of the morning on Saturday. In a Jan., 27 report, the Telegraph reveals Prince Harry left a house party -- that started the night before -- at 10 a.m. The third-in-line to the throne is said to have hopped into a black Range Rover and was driven away by his royal protection officers.

Prince Harry's late-night partying, on his first weekend home from Afghanistan, is really no surprise. During an interview after disembarking on Wednesday, he made his desire to spend times with friends and family clear. "I really am longing to catch up with people behind closed doors – you guys aren't invited," he joked.
Prince Harry spent 20 weeks in Afghanistan after being deployed in September. The tour of duty was his second in the war zone. Following his return, he admitted to having a warped sense of "normalcy" and to having killed Taliban fighters during his deployment.
