Pictures of a naked Prince Harry, grandson of Britain's Queen Elizabeth, cavorting with a nude young woman in a hotel room in Las Vegas were published on a US website on Wednesday, in potential embarrassment to him and the royal family. A royal source confirmed that it was Harry in the photos, which were taken after he started playing a game of strip billiards. One photo published on the celebrity gossip website TMZ shows Harry, an Apache helicopter pilot in the British army, covering up his genitals with his hands while an apparently naked woman hides behind him. The other shows the year-old prince, third in line to the British throne, pictured from the back hugging what appears to be the same naked woman.

Prince Harry has a reputation as the playboy prince. Now there are photos to prove it -- straight from Las Vegas. In one photo, the prince uses his hands to cover his privates while a naked woman wraps her arms around his middle. In a second photo, he appears to be playfully wrestling with a woman near a pool table, and is bent over her.

TMZ posted photos overnight of the prince playing pool in a hotel suite room fully naked. In one of the photos, reportedly taken Friday, Harry is seen standing and covering his genitals with his hand. An unidentified woman, who also appears to be naked, is standing behind him.
Whatever the royal family may think of his exploits in Las Vegas, many Britons can barely hide their support for Prince Harry, posting naked pictures of themselves online in tribute. A Facebook group entitled "Support Prince Harry with a naked salute! The group sprang up after 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.
