Prince Harry has been caught on camera smoking from shisha pipe.

The cheeky royal lived up to his name as he partied with friends onboard a yacht in Abu Dhabi.

In images published by TMZ, the 30-year-old monarch can be seen sampling the flavoured tobacco. His friends watch on as Harry puts the hookah to his lips.

Although Shisha is not a drug, its ability to make users feel "mellow" makes it popular at social gatherings. Royal watchers will be happy to learn that although Harry let his hair down, he kept his clothes on for this event.

Back in 2012, he became embroiled in a scandal after images of him naked in a Las Vegas hotel were leaked online. The snaps were reportedly taken during a game of strip billiards with six young women. At the time the "Party Prince" was enjoying a break in Sin City.

Harry, who was in Abu Dhabi for the Formula One Grand Prix, was in the celebratory mood after watching Lewis Hamilton race to victory.

After congratulating Hamilton on winning the world championship, calling him "an absolute legend", His Royal Highness found a new friend in Fast And Furious star Tyrese Gibson.

Gibson shared a snap of the duo grinning side by side with the caption: "Prince Harry.... #AbuDhabiNights Oh what a night!!!!!! He asked me for a selfie with me on HIS PHONE!!!!!!"
