Prince Harry nicknamed Elvis
Nov 9, 2012, 12:02 GMT
Britain's Prince Harry has been nicknamed Elvis by US Marines in Afghanistan.
The 28-year-old royal is currently in the war-torn country, serving as an Apache helicopter pilot, and the elite American soldiers have given him the rock 'n' roll moniker because of his recent party antics in Las Vegas.
Harry - who was pictured naked in a Vegas hotel after playing a game of strip billiards - has also impressed the soldiers with his grounded attitude.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: 'Harry has become a real celebrity around the camp. At first the Marines thought he would be a sit-at-home soldier, but were shocked when he just kept notching up the missions. He has been on some hair-raising runs, but refuses to be treated any differently from the rest of the lads.
'A lot of the boys are trying to get Harry to go on another trip to Vegas when their service is done.'
Despite the scandal over the naked picture, Harry - who will spend Christmas in Afghanistan - refused to let it get to him and told friends he would just carry on 'living my life' and not worry about what others thought.
