Prince Harry issued an apology on Saturday after a British newspaper posted video footage on its website of him using offensive and racist language and mocking his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth.
In the footage released Saturday by the News of The World, Harry, third in line to the British throne, is heard calling fellow soldiers two different racial slurs while filming them.
The newspaper said the footage was from three years ago during various times in the prince's military training.
Britain's St. James's Palace — the office of Harry and his elder brother Prince William — said Harry was sorry for any offence caused.
"Prince Harry fully understands how offensive this term can be, and is extremely sorry for any offence his words might cause," spokesman Patrick Harrison said in a statement.
