Prince Harry gets silly in Las Vegas
Once again, Britain's Prince Harry has a bit of an image problem.
In his younger days he was in the news for the wrong reasons for smoking marijuana, drinking under-age and wearing a Nazi armband, but that was supposed to be behind him.
A holiday in Las Vegas, however, can cause a young 27-year-old man to do silly things.
The celebrity website TMZ has the story:
"We're told Harry, along with a large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks ... and invited them up to his VIP suite.
Once in the room, things got WILD ... with the group playing a game of strip pool that quickly escalated into full-on royal nudity.
Some of the partiers snapped photos of the madness. In one photo, a fully nude Harry cups his genitals while a seemingly topless woman stands behind him.
In another photo, a naked Harry is bear-hugging a woman who appears to be completely naked as well."
The two images were taken at the Wynn Resort in Las Vegas, the website said
Yesterday, a spokesman for the British royal family admitted that the nude photographs of Prince Harry were genuine.
A royal source told the UK's Press Association news agency that Harry had been "letting off steam before the next phase of his military career".
