Prince Harry's nude romp in a Las Vegas hotel may have led to girlfriend Cressida Bonas breaking up with him, according to reports.

Bonas, 23, a model and heiress, had been dating the prince over the summer, according to Britain's Sunday Mirror newspaper.

Harry, the third-in-line to the British royal throne, and Bonas — the daughter of '60s cover girl and banking heiress Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon — were seen embracing last month at a Batman movie premiere.

And Bonas had reportedly joined Harry on a holiday to Richard Branson's Necker Island before he flew to Vegas.

According to Reuters, that trip — to celebrate the 27th birthday of Branson's son, Sam —featured non-stop tequila-fueled partying.

Another guest, heir Arthur Landon, posted a picture on Facebook of Harry apparently passed out in the sand, captioned: "The perfect start." 

Bonas, meantime, uploaded a photo of herself wearing a bright yellow bikini top, neon pink shorts and a matching pink wig, Reuters wrote.

However, less than a week later Bonas was said to be "humiliated" by the photos showing Harry giving a naked bear hug to another blonde woman, reportedly during a game of strip billiards in Sin City.

Sources wrote that Harry would be summoned to meet with his Commanding Officer over the incident when he returned to duty with the British Army.

The UK's Daily Star newspaper reported that Harry — an Apache pilot — was in danger of losing his role in the military he had so angered defense chiefs. 

"You need a cool head and sound judgment to fly an Apache. Harry showed none of that in Vegas," the Daily Star quoted a royal aide as saying.

"He accepts he behaved stupidly and there is no place for stupidity in an Apache cockpit. Whatever is being said publicly by defense officials to smooth things over, the Army Air Corps will be carefully monitoring his behavior in future.

"Any more of this and he'll be grounded. These are big destructive machines. You need an ice cool brain and have to know how to behave." 

Sources told the Mirror, meantime, that Cressida, a Leeds University graduate, wanted a break.

"Harry has blown it. Cressida saw a future with Harry but then he went and embarrassed her like he did in Vegas," a friend reportedly told the newspaper.

Meanwhile, an American PR company told the newspaper that one of the women who partied with Harry on the 63rd floor of the Wynne 
Las Vegas and Encore Resort Hotel will soon appear on TV, possibly having signed a $1 million deal.

The woman had apparently hired a PR fixer who set up deals for people with stories on Charlie Sheen, Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.

She had also vowed to take a lie detector test.
