Prince Harry can't stay in hiding much longer.

Though the royal has kept a low profile in the wake of his nude photo scandal, the Prince will have to report back to work this Monday, less than one week after his hard-partying Las Vegas pics hit the web.

A source confirms to Us Weekly that Harry, 27, will head back to the RAF Wattisham base to complete his duties as a helicopter pilot.

In the days since TMZ released Harry's in-the-buff shots, the royal has faced much criticism from his superiors. "This is a mess," a source close to Harry, the third-in-line to the British throne, tells Us. "This was not the type of fun he was supposed to be having. He's in trouble." (A sheepish-looking Harry was in L.A. Tuesday when TMZ released the photos.)

When Harry reports for duty, he'll no doubt have to explain himself to his military bosses. "He will be reprimanded [by the army]. Officers should never bring the Service into disrepute, whether on or off duty," a senior military source tells Us of Harry, who had been hiding out at the royal family's Balmoral Castle estate as of Thursday. "This display of social misbehavior has raised eyebrows."

On leave during his wild weekend, Harry is not expected to be dismissed from the army. A spokesman for the Ministry of Defense would not comment to Us when asked about disciplinary action.
