While he probably couldn't get away with it, that didn't stop Prince Harry from wanting to be a "bad boy" growing up!
The 31-year-old royal visited the Ottery Youth Center in Cape Town, South Africa on Monday where he introduced himself as Queen Elizabeth's grandson and Princess Diana's son — and confessed he didn't love attending the highly-regarded Eton boys' boarding school:
"I didn't enjoy school at all. I would like to have come to a place like this. When I was at school, I wanted to be the bad boy."
LOLz! We would love to hear more about these bad boys ways…

The charming prince — who was visiting the center to encourage the young kids not to succumb to peer pressure and gang involvement — couldn't miss an opportunity to tease his older bro Prince William:
"If you've got an older brother that's not into gangs, that's a huge positive. Older brothers are supposedly the cool ones. I'm a younger brother, but I'm much cooler than my older brother."
One lad named Lucky even attested to just how cool Harry was, telling reporters:
"I thought [Prince Harry] was going to come here with a lot of bodyguards. But he didn't – he was a cool guy. My heart felt like I was in heaven."
That's awesome. It's always great to hear stories of high-status celebrities reaching out and mentoring underprivileged children around the world.
He may have been a bad boy, but he turned into quite the great gentlemen — if you ask us!
