Britain's Prince Harry, who is a military helicopter pilot on leave, may face a reprimand following his latest misadventure -- cavorting nude with an unidentified woman in a Las Vegas VIP hotel suite, Us magazine reports.

Us said that the prince "will be reprimanded" by the army because officers "should never bring the service into disrepute, whether on or off duty."

The magazine said the "display of social misbehavior has raised eyebrows," but that Harry will not be dismissed from the Army. A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense would not comment to Us when asked about disciplinary action.

It's hardly the first time the prince -- who allegedly disrobed as part of a game of strip pool -- has been filmed in a compromising situation, The Associated Press reports.

The third-in-line to the throne was famously photographed wearing a Nazi uniform for a costume party, and in another photo gaffe he was seen cupping the breast of a female TV presenter.

While Harry may be on the army's bad side, Londoners don't seem to have a problem with his Las Vegas adventure, according to The Associated Press.

Craig Martin, 38, a construction worker said: "He's the prince. He can have any bird he wants!"

Caregiver Shirley Ashard laughed at the news of Harry's naked adventure, dismissing questions about the propriety of running around a plush hotel room in the buff with a boys-will-be-boys shrug.

"I've got kids. They do things like that," the 59-year-old said. "He's a lad, for God's sake."

The blurry, low-resolution photographs -- which were posted Tuesday night on TMZ -- appear to have been snapped from inside a hotel suite, and it isn't clear that the prince was aware that they were being taken.
