The Royal Family knows the magnitude of the recent scandal and it also knows we live in a day and age in which it's basically impossible to keep a secret. Nevertheless, it's barred all British media from running compromising photos of Prince Harry.
Harry got himself into trouble again during a recent trip to Las Vegas, where he partied the nights away oblivious to the fact that the girls he was partying with had camera cellphones they planned on using when he was not paying attention.
The result of such carelessness turned out to be the leak of several shots showing the Prince in the buff, covering his modesty with his hands, during a game of strip billiards – which he lost, we assume.
Behind him cowered a mystery girl, one of the two Harry and friends picked up and brought up to their VIP suite specifically for the game in question.
As reports claim that Harry's handlers are getting all the blame for the scandal (for not taking the phones from the girls before the party started and for allowing them to take pictures), the Royal Family has come up with a solution (of sorts) to the problem.
They're just going to pretend that what the people can't see doesn't exist, as Radar Online
can confirm. All media outlets have been banned from running the incriminating pics.
“London-based law firm Harbottle & Lewis sent Britain’s biggest newspapers legal letters claiming that snaps of Harry, 27, covering his crown jewels with his hands during a game of billiards in Las Vegas over the weekend, were in breach of the Press Complaints Commission code,” the e-zine says.
“The lawyers said any one publishing them would be in breach of the PCC. The media outlets were also warned that their privileges for access to media events featuring the royal family could be restricted if they did use the pictures,” a source close to the situation says for the same media outlet.
“Of course, the British media is very careful when a royal scandal is revealed nowadays and has to bow down to the royal family’s demands,” adds the tipster.
Fortunately (but not for Harry), today, we have the Internet. Even if the photos don't make it in British publications, they're now available online – and have been so since the scandal started.
To make light of a serious situation, The Sun has opted to defy the Royals and is running its own recreation
of Harry's wild Vegas party, using two of its own editors.
