Prince Harry laughs off nude snaps

London – Britain’s Prince Harry has made light of his recent exploits in his first public appearance since naked photographs of him in a Las Vegas hotel room surfaced on the internet.

Speaking at a London awards ceremony for seriously ill youngsters and their carers, Harry conceded it would be difficult to adequately describe their achievements.

“But never one to be shy in coming forward, I’ll give it a go,” he said to laughs from the audience last night.
However, the prince acted swiftly to ensure a six-year-old boy, who earlier threatened to embarrass the royal, behaved himself.

Alex Logan was asked by ITV News before the ceremony what he would say to the royal and replied: “I’m glad you’ve got your clothes on Prince Harry.”

Debbie Logan, the youngster’s mother, later revealed that Harry said to her son “you keep looking up at your mum, looks like your dying to say something but you know she will tell you off. I heard you were on ITV earlier, you said something cheeky, let’s not talk about that here,” added the prince.

Harry (27) was photographed naked with a mystery woman during a game of “strip billiards” in a Las Vegas hotel suite.

The images, first published on a US website last Wednesday, rapidly went viral and caused a furore in Britain.

Harry was speaking at the awards ceremony for WellChild, a UK-based charity of which he is patron.
