LATEST: British royal Prince Harry has been to ditch one of his friends by father Prince Charles following a drunken party at the weekend (24/25MAY03).

Harry, 18, who admitted to underage drinking and drug taking last year (JAN02), was seen attending the same society bash as pal GUY PELLY - who was snapped stripping naked at the raucous party.

And now Harry has been ordered to drop Pelly - who was accused of introducing the Prince to illegal drugs - from his circle of friends to protect his battered reputation.

A royal aide tells Britain's The Sun newspaper, "Harry has been told he has to lose Perry as a friend. His behaviour was totally unacceptable for someone who associates with the Prince.

"Charles understands Harry had nothing to do with what went on but Pelly is still his friend. He shouldn't be in his circle anymore."
