Proving that boys will be boys, even if the lads are from royal lineage, Prince William and Prince Harry were among the revellers who chugged back pints of brew during a bachelor bash weekend for their soon-to-wed cousin, Peter Phillips. According to the Isle of Wight County Press, the cozy, 16-room Rawlings Hotel was the group’s home base during a three-day stay in the seaside town of Cowes.
Transforming from princes into court jesters, the second and third in line to the throne and their coterie of chums made the prospective groom carry a doll as they popped into several of the town’s pubs, including the Painters Arms and the Anchor Pub inside The Anchor Inn, where real ale has flowed since the days of Queen Victoria.
Peter Phillips has one month to recover from his raucous weekend and scrub the black marker glasses and mustache drawn on his face by his partying friends. The son of Princess Anne will stand at the altar at Windsor Castle’s St. George’s Chapel with bride Autumn Kelly on May 17, 2008.
