Britain's Prince Harry has been named Man of the Year by Tatler magazine.

The 28-year-old royal – who caused a scandal when he was pictured naked partying in his Las Vegas hotel room in August – will appear on the cover of the society magazine next month to mark the accolade.

The photographs were taken in the Bahamas when he visited as part of the tours undertaken by the royal family to mark Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee.

According to the Sunday Express newspaper, Harry – wearing full military dress – appears on the cover behind the heading 'Dirty Harry' and the taglines 'Prince Harry. The girls, the gangs, the gaffes'.

An accompanying six-page article chronicles the prince's exploits, from his military and charity work to smoking cannabis and his infamous Las Vegas trip.

It is the first time in two decades that a man has appeared on the cover of the magazine.

The last time Tatler had a male cover star was in 1992, when Harry's father Prince Charles graced the front page.
