Prince Harry - normal naughty boy? Or complete twerp?

I'll precis for those who don't like to click through - he was in Las Vegas on holiday, met a bunch of girls, invited them back to his room, then played (and lost) at strip billiards - one of his 'new friends' took naked pictures of him (with a girl who was naked) and published them in the paper in the states.

It's definitely him.

Now as everyone knows I'm a bit fond of the Royal family - but blimey, I can't get my head around this.

Prince Harry was today flying back to the UK to face a firestorm over explicit photographs showing him cavorting naked with a mystery woman in a Las Vegas hotel room.

The third in line to the throne has been accused of bringing the Royal Family into global disrepute after the pictures were leaked to a US website.

The grainy shots, taken on a fellow reveller’s mobile phone, show the Queen’s grandson stark naked – apart from a distinctive thong necklace – playing a game of ‘naked billiards’ in his high rollers’ suite at the five-star Wynn Hotel.

If he was one of my kids and I found the pictures on Facebook I'd be cross - but really, what was he thinking?  Is he just a complete prank?  Or is it not fair he's under the risk of so much exposure and someone took the pictures?  I really can't decide.

Personally I think he's a young lad doing what all lads do, especially soldiers on leave.
if anything I think I will make he younger generation like the royal family a bit more.
To be honest he's not doing anything that he ancestors didn't do except in their day they didn't have the technology to be found out like we do these days. Aparently Queen Victoria's son was a lot worse that Prince Harry.

Sorry, he is just being a lad and I think davelisa is right. I had to laugh when I saw a tweet on twitter from 'his' account (it's a fake one) and it said - What happened to What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas! x

If he wasn't the Prince it wouldn't have been news. It's not like he has done anything unlawful and I imagine this sort of thing goes on all the time in the world. You think he would be abit more careful who he befriended but personally for ,me the girls he was with don't come out best in this.

I agree completely; he's just a silly young lad doing what millions of other silly young lads have done since before time began. Admittedly you'd think he ought to be a little more aware of protocol given his family, but odds are he's never going to be king, so it's less important for him to be as reserved as Charles and William. 

I wonder what would have happened had this been William. I'd bet my left leg on it those pictures would never have sen the light of day. Harry has a security and protection team, makes you wonder what they were up to while someone was taking pictures of him in the nip.

I agree it's a young lad having a bit of fun.

Wasn't there some pics of his father a few years ago, about 20!, showing off his crown jewels? granted he wasn't playing naked billards at the time.

Like father like son ;)

I wondered that OA, surely his protection officers should have been able to protect him, even if it meant erasing the pictures.

Hmmm I'm wondering if they were published on purpose, the "fun" side to the royal family while at the same time pretending to be annoyed at him....

They said on the news today he was flying home to a sh!tstorm. To be honest I can't imagine any of them giving flying figs about it, they do say that August is the slowest month of the year for journalists to drum up stories. Thank goodness for those Kardashian douches.
