Prince Harry reportedly gulped down beer through a hosepipe before saying goodbye to booze for his "dry year".
The third in line to the throne, who is honing his flying skills to become a pilot of the meanest attack machine in the British Army, is said to be required to follow strict rules that include staying away from the bottle for months at a time.
A witness has revealed that the party-loving soldier prince, who flew down to Mauritius for a holiday, was spotted "putting the length of hose to his mouth, swallowing the ale in seconds.""Harry and his friends were having a great time. They were daring each other to down drinks through the pipe," the Sun quoted the witness as saying.
"Harry didn't go first but it looked like he was one of the more experienced drinkers. He looked like a man on a mission to enjoy a few pints.” If he has a dry year, who can blame him for knocking them back here," the onlooker added.
