  Harry back at Eton after drugs shock
Updated 14 January 2002, 07.29
Prince Harry
Prince Harry starts back at school today after he admitted drinking and taking drugs over the weekend.

He spent Sunday with his father, Prince Charles, and older brother, Prince William, after a Sunday newspaper broke the story.

The News of the World reported Harry, 17, had been drinking heavily and smoked cannabis over the last year or so.

He met recovering addicts

But St James' Palace insists the problem is in the past and Harry does not smoke cannabis anymore.

The young prince is said to be embarrassed and ashamed that it has gone public.

Prince Charles sent Harry, who is third in line to the throne, to meet recovering addicts at a drug clinic, after he admitted taking cannabis.

The media has been asked to respect Harry's privacy now he is back at school.
