The chick’s name is Carrie Reichert, a fellow Brit, and word has it that Prince Harry went out of his way to woo the lady (though, let’s be honest, would it really take all that much to woo anybody at all when you’re Prince Harry?), and though they had some fun, it was “nothing serious.” From the UK’s Mirror:
“We kissed, he was naked at the time, and pretty open. It was a drunken fumble. It wasn’t romantic, just fun. He was a gentleman, but he was so wasted. The alcohol affected him. I was there for 15 to 20 minutes.”
So I’m assuming we can go ahead and draw our own conclusions that they didn’t sleep together, and that they probably would have if Harry … well, if Harry hadn’t drank so much that evening. Interesting, to say the least.
Carrie’s thirty-two, and this is her:
Here’s more from the Mirror:
Carrie, 32, is the only girl to come forward to reveal her story of what happened on the now-infamous night when Harry, 27, was caught on camera frolicking naked with a girl after a game of “strip billiards”.
She first spotted the prince and his upper-crust pals when she was by the swimming pool at the Encore At Wynn hotel earlier that evening. Carrie, from San Diego, who was visiting Sin City with girlfriends, said: “They were walking around and I knew exactly who he was. “I was born in England and I’m pretty familiar with the royal family, but I didn’t know the guys he was with. I was the only one who knew who he was. Everybody else was like, ‘Who’s that?’ And I’m like, ‘Oh my God, that’s Prince Harry!’ It was pretty clear who he was.”
Later one of Harry’s entourage approached Carrie and asked if she wanted to join his party in the penthouse. Carrie said: “They said ‘Hey, would you like to party with Prince Harry?’ I’m not going to pass an opportunity to party with Prince Harry. At first you think it’s a line. People will say anything to get you to go anywhere in Vegas. There was a bunch of us, it wasn’t just me and my girlfriends, it was just random. They were just picking really pretty girls, about 10 of us.”
Without being checked by security staff, Carrie and the group were taken upstairs to the VIP room where they found the party in full swing. Beautician Carrie said: “We all went up to this huge VIP high-roller suite, and went in and the music was going, alcohol was flowing. “Harry was already undressed. It was just crazy. He looked actually delirious. There was a pool table and he was playing air guitar with pool sticks.
“He was screaming out, ‘Somebody get me a glove! I’m going to do a Michael Jackson impression!’ He would just randomly walk up to you and hug you. He was just really friendly and there were just really random naked hugs. It was funny.”
Talking about the mobile phone pictures of naked Harry cuddling a mystery girl during the game of strip pool, Carrie said: “I didn’t actually see them play the game but it was there and it was going on. I saw the girl, there was just a lot of hugging and maybe some kissing. Just a lot of laughing. It seemed like he was overbearing a …
… little bit, and she was kind of shy and very timid. I didn’t catch her name as we were all drinking. She was an American girl. She was very slender, really cute and pretty, kind of shy and she also seemed really drunk. I saw her trip over a couple of times. But he was laughing and thought it was really funny. And there were pictures being taken. I didn’t take any personally.” Carrie says Harry’s pals encouraged him to behave outrageously.
She said: “He was being egged on. They thought it was hilarious. It was just, ‘Oh, Harry! Go play some pool while you’re naked!’ and just egging him on like, ‘Go hug her’. It was happening in the living area. Where the gaming room was. They were holding each other, talking and kissing and stuff.” The naked girl whom Harry hugged has remained anonymous despite the pictures going global.
According to Carrie, Harry wasn’t the only guest with no clothes on. She said there were naked girls and some of the men were half-dressed. She insists it wasn’t an orgy but Harry was encouraging his guests to strip off. She said: “There was billiards being played. Harry was being randomly funny, going from the billiards to the bedroom. He wasn’t the only one naked. There were girls naked. The guys were half dressed.
“It was not like an orgy going on, it was just sexy naked. It was like almost a game. He was trying to get everybody to get naked. That was the whole point of him being naked. “Girls were getting naked, he was screaming out ‘Everybody get naked!’ Just randomly doing crazy stuff. “He was pressing his body up against the window and saying ‘Look at me Vegas!’ because he’s got this huge window and of course you can see all of Vegas down the strip. Just pressing up against the window just like, ‘Look at me Vegas, these are the royal jewels’.”
It wasn’t long before Harry fell for Carrie’s charms. The pair talked about England, where Carrie was born while her father, a US serviceman, was stationed at Lakenheath, Suffolk. Harry, an Army Air Corps captain currently based at Wattisham, Suffolk, even joked that they could be related. Carrie said: “ I introduced myself, and right away knew he was completely wasted, very intoxicated. I had to let him know I knew who he was, and that I was born in England and right away he was like ‘Oh my Gosh, that’s amazing! I can’t believe you’re here in Vegas, we could be related’. I have blue eyes and he was going on and on.
“And I was like ‘Ah! He likes me!’ He was happy-go-lucky, yeah, just going with the flow. He gave me a huge hug and I introduced myself, and yeah, the party’s going.” Then Harry took Carrie’s hand and led her towards his bedroom while the other guests partied in the living room. Carrie said she took her dress off to reveal her bikini and kissed him. She said: “We both walked back together, and he grabbed my hand and walked back toward his bedroom. I found my way back there with him. We were talking and we had found some similarities and some interests him and I had together. And I was interested of course. Yeah, I followed him back to his bedroom. He was fixated that we had something in common and we kept talking, I spent seven years of my childhood in England and it played a big part of my life, so we had lots to discuss.
“He said that he liked my eyes and was just going on and on about the military. He didn’t make too much sense. Then he grabbed my hand and we went back to his room. There was not very much talking at that time, his clothes were off. I had a bikini on. A string bikini. I had a party dress over that, and that came off. And I just had a bikini.” Carrie and Harry then had what she describes as a “drunken fumble”.
Carrie added: “We kissed for 15 to 20 minutes. I am sure somebody stumbled in as there were people going in and out of rooms all the time. We kissed again and he said ‘That was great’. He told me I was beautiful and gorgeous, which was sweet. Then we kind of nonchalantly returned to the party and kept drinking.”
“We went back into the living area and I assumed people knew but everyone acted like nothing happened. A little bit after some girls passed out on seats, and I felt I needed to go back to my room so I did.” After his party, Harry continued his Vegas visit for three days, taking in MGM’s Wet Republic Ultra Pool and the XS nightclub before the nude photos emerged.
Thoughts? You guys buying it? My favorite part, personally, was when he was exposing his “royal jewels” to the strip. Because my God. I can just see it (or rather, I wish I could just see it).
