Prince Harry nude photos cause a stir

London – Nude photographs showing Britain’s Prince Harry in a compromising position with a young woman in a hotel room in Las Vegas caused a stir in Britain.

The pictures, which appeared on US celebrity gossip website TMZ, were taken on Friday after the prince and his entourage met women at a hotel bar and invited them up to his suite, according to the website.

The royal palace confirmed that the man seen on the images is the 27-year-old prince, but declined to comment further.

The images of Harry follow his very public involvement in the Olympic Games in London, which prompted commentators to hail the “responsible” roles adopted by him and other young royals in public life.

The prince has completed his training as an Apache helicopter pilot and is a captain in the Army Air Corps.

He has repeatedly said he wants to serve in Afghanistan.

Harry, who has a reputation as a heart-throb and is nicknamed the “party prince,” was “just letting off steam” before the next phase of his military career, an unnamed royal source told the Press Association.

Earlier during his private stay in the US, it was reported that Prince Harry “challenged” US Olympic champion Ryan Lochte to a pool swimming competition – which the royal lost.
