5 APRIL 2008

After his tour of duty in Afghanistan, it was time for Prince Harry to let his hair down and enjoy a night out in London.

With beautiful girlfriend Chelsy Davy still in South Africa, soldier Harry turned to glamorous cousins Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie for company.

The trio – joined by Beatrice's boyfriend Dave Clark – spent the night dancing at the glitzy Mahiki nightclub in London's Mayfair.

His skin lightly tanned from his recent romantic holiday in Africa with Chelsy, the prince cut a handsome figure on his first excursion onto the London night scene since returning from active service.

Also showing off her bronzed skin was 19-year-old Beatrice. Dressed in a black ruffled smock and sporting Christian Louboutin heels, Prince Andrew's eldest daughter looked the picture of health following a two-week trip to Thailand.

All eyes, however, were on her younger sister. Sporting a sleek brunette bob, the Princess, 18, showed just why she is getting a reputation as the royal trendsetter with her manicured nails painted an eye-catching cornflower blue to match her floaty dress designed by Kate Moss for Topshop.
