Harry Party Stories 'Untrue', Say Royals
- Prince back from Argentina after alcohol and security scares

PRINCE HARRY has been flown back to Britain from Argentina, where his behaviour is said to have caused concern to the local police.

Reports in the Argentine media suggest Harry, third in line to the throne, regularly found himself drunk in nightclubs in the early hours and had become a target for both local girls and kidnap gangs.

In Britain, aides condemned such reports as "100 per cent untrue," adding that "accounts in certain papers in Argentina about Harry's alleged drinking and bad behaviour couldn't be more wide of the mark." But Royal spokespeople have confirmed Harry is now back in Britain. He flew back early due to an injury sustained playing polo, they said.

Though the story of a potential kidnapping has not been confirmed, police accompanying the prince on his trip are understood to have not wanted to leave things to chance. "If there is any risk at all he has to be removed," said a Metropolitan Police spokesperson.

The latest reports will polish Harry's image as the bad-boy royal. In recent years Harry has hit out at a photographer and admitted taking illegal drugs.
