Family divided over scandalous snaps

The royal family are understandably miffed about naked pictures of Prince Harry being posted on a US website.

Harry, 27, is shown starkers playing strip billiards and hugging a girl in the shots taken at a wild party during his Las Vegas holiday last week.

Prince Charles is reported to have told his son to keep his head down for a while until the scandal blows over.

Charles is not impressed with Harry’s antics and thinks he should have known better,’ a source tells the Daily Mirror.

He has advised his youngest son to lie low and not be seen falling out of any nightclubs. He gave him a talking to as any protective father would because he wants to make sure this kind of thing doesn’t happen again.

But he wasn’t too unkind. Harry is embarrassed enough as it is.’

Just like his dad, Prince William is also said to be not impressed’ by his brother’s behaviour.

Yet the cousin of Wills‘ wife Kate Middleton has defended Harry. Burlesque dancer and Playboy model Katrina Darling thinks that slamming the photos sends out a bad message about nudity.

I was shocked that the public were surprised that there is a young man having fun, partying and being comfortable with his body,’ Katrina, 21, tells E! News.

I don’t think anyone should be sending a message that it is wrong or sordid to be nude. It’s not.

Shaming someone for being nude is not a positive attitude to teach people, the human form is a beautiful and amazing thing to be celebrated.

He didn’t choose to be a role model, he’s human and living a life that most can only dream of.’

Harry is due to appear in public again during the Paralympic Games.
