(Newser) – Prince Harry opens up about his naked Las Vegas photo scandal in video obtained by the Telegraph, blaming himself for letting himself and his family down. "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 says. But he adds that he didn't think it was "acceptable" for newspapers to publish the pictures: "I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect." In case he didn't have quite enough fun the last time he was in Vegas, the city's mayor thinks he should come back now that he's home from Afghanistan: "When he was here everyone was talking about it," Carolyn Goodman tells TMZ. "We welcome him back with open arms."

Harry's line about "too much army, not enough prince" didn't really impress Gawker. In fact, in an impressive piece, Caity Weaver rounds up quotes from all the interviews Harry did yesterday to mark his return home and declares the prince "remarkably poorly spoken." In case you don't quite get her meaning, she adds, "This boy dumb." Some of the other quotes she uses as examples:

  • On why he's such a good soldier: "You can ask the guys: I thrash them at [soccer video game] FIFA the whole time."
  • On finding someone to marry: "You ain't ever going to find someone who's going to jump into the position that it would hold. Simple as that."
  • On his brother expecting a baby: "I literally am very, very happy for them."
  • More on the baby: "I just only hope that she and him—but mainly Catherine—hopefully that she gets the necessary protection to allow her as a mother-to-be to enjoy the privacy that that comes with."
