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 naked billiards in Las Vegas over the weekend, were in breach of the Press Complaints Commission code.
However, despite the ban imposed on the British press, photos of Harry’s rear end have circulated around the world from U.S. to Australia!
“In an effort to sweep this under the carpet as quickly as possible, Harbottle & Lewis have told the British papers not to run Prince Harry’s naked pictures,” a source revealed.
“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.
“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.
“But despite the ban on the UK press, the pictures have already circulated around the world on the internet. Everyone has seen them, so Harry’s blushes will never be spared – not in this day and age,” the source revealed.
In an attempt at working around the ban, British tabloid The Sun staged their own reenactment. They hilariously snapped one of their reporters standing in the nude, clutching his private parts with a mystery girl behind him.
As RadarOnline.com previously reported, Harry, the third-in-line to the British throne, was caught in a naked photo scandal in Las Vegas.
The rebellious royal, who once dressed up as a Nazi officer, invited a group of party revelers to his VIP suite at the Wynn Hotel and Casino to play a raucous game of strip pool.
However, unluckily for Harry, he appeared to have lost and in one photo he can be seen completely naked with just his hands covering his modesty, and in another bear hugging a girl from behind.
As soon as the scandal broke Tuesday, Harry booked a flight home where we’re sure he will face a stern telling off from his grandmother, the Queen!
