The 28-year-old royal will be skipping the city on his first trip back to the United States since that nude photo scandal erupted after his last visit in August. At that time, pics of the third in line to the British throne partying nude with equally bare ladies in a VIP hotel suite in Las Vegas leaked onto the Internet, sparking a firestorm of bad publicity for the royal family. (Prince Harry, a captain in Britain's Army Air Corps, has managed to stay out of trouble since then, largely because he was deployed to Afghanistan for four months, beginning in September.)
However, he'll be returning stateside May 9-15 for charity events, focused mostly on those that help injured servicemen and women from the U.S. and U.K. armed forces. He'll be in Washington, D.C., where he’ll visit Arlington National Cemetery and Walter Reed National Military Medical Center; New Jersey for meetings with Hurricane Sandy victims; New York City to play in a community baseball event; and will make additional stops for similar events in Connecticut, Denver, and Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Still, Harry could always make an unscheduled stop in Sin City, like he did last summer. Back then, he was supposed to be at a charity event in Southern California when a spontaneous stopover led him to that compromising position, which reportedly left his older brother Prince William "not impressed."

Prince Harry sounded sorta kinda regretful of the incident during a January interview.
"It was probably a classic example of me probably being too much army, and not enough prince. It's a simple case of that," he told People. "At the end of the day I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down."
Still, Harry noted that the pics should not have been leaked.
"But at the end of the day I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect."
Think Harry will be able to keep his clothes on this trip?
