Even Prince Harry has made an embarrassing phone call or two while under the influence of alcohol.

New evidence presented as part of the News of the World phone hacking scandal, shows the red-haired royal drunk dialled his ex-girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, during "piss-ups" with army colleagues.

An email sent in March 2006, former News of the World royal correspondent Clive Goodman says, "She gets calls from him and he's completely not in a good condition ... piss ups," reports The Daily Beast. 

He would apparently "shout affections to her [Davy] down the phone", Goodman continued.

A prank phone call from Prince William to Harry was also documented as evidence in the trial.

The royal was recorded without his knowledge, speaking in a female voice, saying: "Hi it's Chelsy here. You're the best looking ginger I've ever seen ... You big hairy fat ginger."

The messages were from a collection of micro-cassettes recovered from private investigator Glenn Mulcaire's home.

Prince Harry dated Davy on and off for six years. They broke up after the royal wedding in 2011.

The Daily Mail reports the pair split because Davy did not want to become a princess. She wanted a career and a private life.

Prince Harry, 29, has been dating Cressida Bonas, 25, for almost two years now.

Wedding rumours have been heating-up around the couple but a source told the Tele-graph that while Harry would get married straight away, Bonas isn't ready. 

"People talk to her all the time about Harry and she gets quite cross and says 'I don't want to get married yet'," says the source.

"She hasn't been invited to meet the Queen yet, so she's not at the stage of an engagement being imminent."

The couple recently attended their first royal engagement together, We Day UK, held at Wembley Arena.

Prince Harry made a speech, while Bonas walked the red carpet.

"If you were expecting Harry Styles, I apologise. And no, I'm not going to sing," Prince Harry told the crowd.
