Prince William's bachelor party a.k.a. "stag do," in British parlance, went off without a hitch over the weekend, the Daily Mail reports and a source at St. James's Palace confirms.
Wills, along with Prince Harry took over a Norfolk estate along with 20 other guys, including "James Meade, who Prince William met at Eton, and Thomas Van Straubenzee who attended Ludgroe Prep School in Berkshire with the Prince. Hugh Van Cutsem, whose father owns a large estate in Norfolk, is also understood to have been present. Cutsem is one of Prince Charles' godsons," the Mail writes. And, of course, "bad influence" Guy Pelly was on-hand.

We understand, really. Prince Harry was believed to have prepared a trip involving water sports in Exmouth, Devon, but those plans were scrapped after word leaked to the press.
The Daily Express writes that the low-key festivities did not exceed $4,000 (or 2,500 British pounds).
Prince William's stag weekend was in marked contrast to that of Peter Phillips, his cousin and the son of the Princess Royal, in April 2009. The Prince arrived at the event by RAF helicopter with his brother before enjoying several drinking games in which he reportedly downed pints and dropped his trousers.
Sounds like that was a jolly good time.
