Prince Harry has always had a sort of a wild reputation, with various paparazzi photos documenting some of his drunken outings and crazy antics. This time, though, he's gone all the way, down to and then off with his skivvies – and the Royal Family is in shock.
Harry is now in Las Vegas with friends and, perhaps trusting the saying that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, he and a friend picked up girls at a bar and proceeded to their suite for a game of strip billiards, TMZ
As it happens, a camera was on hand (not a professional one, mind you but, these days, a cell phone will suffice) to snap the historic moment of Harry's losing.
The photos are now available over at TMZ, which notes that they're genuine. And, yes, Harry lost the game by the looks of it, as also did one of the girls.
“It all went down Friday night during a raging party in a high rollers hotel suite. 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,” TMZ writes.
The hotel in question is the swanky Wynn resort, where Harry arrived that same day.
“Once in the room, things got WILD, with the group playing a game of strip pool that quickly escalated. No word on who the women are... or if they got Harry's phone number,” TMZ jokes.
“A rep for the Royal Family tells us, 'We have no comment to make on the photos at this time',” adds the same.
The Daily Beast
notes that this is the answer the Royal camp is giving to any media outlet that comes asking about the embarrassing pics, but the truth of the matter is that everybody is appalled and shocked.
“The reaction to the pictures from the British corridors of power was one of stunned shock today. Rather panicky royal press officers were simply repeating the line that there was no comment to make, but there will undoubtedly there will be huge disappointment at Harry’s latest idiotic caper, which will undo years of good work on the part of him and his team,” the publication argues.
The “no comment” response is just a means of buying some time to think about damage control, it goes on to say. You can count on it happening any minute now.
