CAN I GET A LIFT TO BLIGHTY ? EXCLUSIVE Boozy Harry misses flight.

Byline: By Stephen Moyes and Gary Anderson

PRINCE Harry cadged a lift home with the England rugby team yesterday after missing his flight from Paris.

But he sheepishly tried to sneak off the back steps while Jonny Wilkinson and his team-mates lined up at Heathrow.

The Party Prince was nursing a royal hangover following a 25-hour booze marathon after Saturday's world cup defeat.

He carried on drinking on Sunday while Prince William stuck to water.

And when William left the hotel for his 7pm flight, Harry and his posh pal Skippy stayed for another pint and glass of white wine before leaving for the airport 90 minutes later. But at 9.30pm Harry slunk back into the bar, saying: "Oh dear, I missed my flight!" He was cheered to the rafters by the rugby stars who found it hilarious.

But hours after landing yesterday, Harry was on his way to an awards ceremony for ill children.

After quick change into a smart dark suit and tie, the young royal showed he had inherited his mother Diana's ability to bond with those in need.

He spent an hour chatting to children, including Christopher Anderson, at the do at Lords cricket ground for WellChild charity, of which he is patron.
