British royal Prince Harry has been named Town & Country magazine's most eligible bachelors of 2013.
The youngest of late Princess Diana's sons, edged out award winning actor George Clooney, according to reports. He was recognised for being 'flirtatious' and for 'dressing up — in everything from ill-fated fancy dress to his birthday suit'.
"He's the wild-card royal, the naughty one, the one who goes out with rah women, hangs out with a fast crowd, downs too many drinks, and goes home at the wrong moment. That's why we all like him best,"
"Harry might not possess a towering intellect – he was a lackadaisical student at Eton, and he skipped university to go to Sandhurst, the English equivalent of West Point – but he is cooler and more appealing than his older brother, sweet as William undoubtedly is," the magazine was quoted by People as saying.
Prince William's little brother, who is third in line for the throne, made headline's in August last year when naked photographs of him in Las Vegas surfaced online.
The nude pictures published on celebrity news website TMZ were reportedly taken in Prince Harry's Las Vegas hotel suite.
A source told TMZ that Prince Harry with a 'large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks ... and invited them up to his VIP suite' TMZ reported.
The man believed to be Prince Harry stripped down after a game of strip pool with the group. In one of the pictures the man reportedly seen cuffing his genitals with his hands while a women also appearing to be naked, stands behind him.
In the second photgraph the alleged nude Prince Harry was seen 'bear hugging' a naked woman.
A representative for the family reportedly told TMZ: "We have no comment to make on the photos at this time."

According CNN the allegations published in a UK tabloid, Prince Charles allegedly took Prince Harry to a rehabilitation clinic due to the drug use report.
In 2005, photographs of the 28-year-old wearing a Nazi soldier's uniform were published on the front page of a British newspaper to a dress party.
"I am very sorry if I caused any offense or embarrassment to anyone. It was a poor choice of costume and I apologise," CNN quoted Harry in a statement as saying.
In 2009, Harry made headlines again after he allegedly made offensive remarks to describe members of his military unit, which he also apologised for.
