Prince Harry racked up whopping £30,000 bill at Las Vegas hotel where he was photographed naked, but he didn't pay it
According to royal biographer Katie Nicholl, the Prince had gone on a spending spree during his stay at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas back in 2012.
Prince Harry once racked up a bill of £30,000 while staying at a hotel in Las Vegas, but the owner just waived it off, according a new documentary which reveals royal secret spendings.
According to royal biographer Katie Nicholl, the Prince had gone on a spending spree during his stay at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas back in 2012. It is the same hotel where he was picture naked in photos that were soon leaked online.
Nicholl, in the Channel 5 documentary, ‘Spending Secrets of the Royals’, claimed that Steve Wynn, the billionaire owner of the hotel refused to take the money when Harry tried to clear the bill, and instead, “just wiped the slate clean”.
Nicholl has claimed that this isn’t the first time the prince had to pocket his wallet wituhout paying the bill. While on a night out in London’s Mayfair, in 2007, “Prince Harry tried to pay with his Army identity card”, after billing a pretty high amount for a party with his friends and his then-girlfriend, Chelsea Davy.
Nicholl mentioned, “The barman called for the manager to see exactly what to do about this transaction and the bill was waived.”
Yet, the prince’s largest party till date continues to be his wedding day last year.
According to the royal biographer, “Harry and Meghan’s wedding cost over £32m’ and the ‘majority would have gone on security, which was the biggest single expenditure”.
She added: ‘“286,000 or thereabouts was spent on catering for the evening event, £193,000 on drink alone, a further £100,000 on the flowers which beautifully adorned St George’s Chapel and then £387,000 on Meghan’s wedding dress”.
The documentary also claims that the Queen Mother also lived in an extravagant fashion during her years at Clarence House.
Royal wine waitress Pippa Penny revealed in the documentary: “At the age of 97, she was in the hospital having an operation on her hip and she smuggled 12 bottles of Krug champagne into the hospital to make her stay a little more comfortable and enjoyable. A bottle of Krug can fetch up to £150.”
As a result of such extravagant spending, Queen Elizabeth had to ‘subsidise her mother’s spending to £1.5m a year’, according to Katie Nicholl. She said: "When the Queen Mother died, she actually had an overdraft with Couts's bank of £4m which was left to the Queen to clear."
