There were several people there. They were having a party and apparently playing strip billiards.

There's no "trust" poolside in Vegas. Everyone and their brother has a phone camera, and there will never be a time, in Vegas, where there is privacy. One should just assume that. I suppose one can trust some of the better hotels to have highly screened staff (doubt it), but seriously, doesn't everyone know that in the age group that attended that party, there will be people with cameras - who are used to posting anything/everything they think is remotely interesting?

If Harry doesn't know this (I say he does and simply doesn't care), he needs to wise up. It's very hard to believe he's that naive. I prefer to think he's simply a free thinker.

From what I've read, this was part of a party in a suite with a pool or at some other near poolside venue in Vegas.

Looks like a bunch of young people got naked and went swimming in the hot desert of Nevada.

He partied hard there last year when he was with his military friends, he must have liked it.

Which hotel was it, does anyone know?

I believe the article said Harry and his two friends met some girls at the bar and invited them to their suite. So there were a bunch of people in the room.

He stayed at the Wynn. Supposedly they started off the trip in Necker Island and then went on to Vegas. The DM is saying that Cressida was with Harry in Necker.

Naked Prince Harry pictured cavorting with nude girl in VIP suite during raucous Vegas holiday | Mail Online

Accompanied by the prince’s new romantic interest, blonde beauty Cressida Bonas, daughter of a four-times married and divorced aristocratic 60s ‘It-girl’, the group flew out first class en route to Sir Richard Branson’s private British Virgin Island paradise of Necker.

They enjoyed a week-long holiday to celebrate his son Sam’s birthday (a spokesman for Branson confirms the trip but insists that Harry paid for his own flight).

As a mother who has raised 2 boys, my first thought was 'Oh, Harry, Harry, Harry, what WERE you THINKING!". Followed by "Obviously, you weren't thinking at all, were you?".

My sons are just about the same ages as William & Harry & I pounded into both of their heads that the internet is FOREVER & that no-one is 'safe'. While I trusted my older son, who at one time was in the public eye, to not get himself in this type of situation (the stories he told me about what went on when he was on tour!), I can so see my younger son getting himself in a 'Harry-like' predicament due to his more spontaneous and fun loving nature.

Unfortunately, in the future when Harry gets engaged, married, has a child, or does anything positive, someone somewhere will drag these pictures out for show. I feel sorry for him for having been so careless. He's entitled to sow his wild oats & I don't have a problem with his private antics, I just think it's too bad someone was mercenary enough to take pics then sell them!

Which brings me to my third & final mother-of-boys remonstrance: "Well, I hope you've learned your lesson now. Maybe next time you'll listen to me!" Or in Harry's case, whoever it was that was saying "Are you sure this is a good idea?". And I'm sure there was someone saying that. There always is!

It was reportedly at the very expensive Wynn Hotel and Casino.

As my friend says. Really Harry,Really lol. Come on Son
If they had hired such a person, then the scandal would be that they'd spent money making sure there were no pics of Harry in Vegas.

If Harry wants to go to Vegas and live free, it's kind of a no-win, can't please everyone situation.

That works best when it's one's own event or room.

My understanding is that this is not taking place in Harry's room.

he problem however, is that at some point these very same posters are going to wonder why such very, very ordinary people are in such extraordinary positions, and they're going to wonder why such a very, very ordinary man who did not earn the position, is fit to represent them. What is so special or different about him? If Divine Right is well and truly dead (which, along with modern technology, allowed Harry's forefathers to do whatever they pleased), why are men like Harry in such extraordinary positions of privilege? He was not elected to his position, he did not earn it through sweat and tears. If monarchies are to continue in the 21st century the people in such extraordinary positions will have to earn it somehow; and it will have to be through living exemplary lives like the Queen.
Hmm, I think I have to agree with this.

There wouldn't be a scandal, because the PR person will see to that. No one would be any the wiser.

This is the issue that these photos highlight, IMO. I have no doubt that some of Harry's forebears and relatives did exactly the same thing and probably much worse, but they didn't have the benefit, or burden, of the sort of technology that Harry lives with. These photos prove that Harry is just an ordinary young man, and a lot of his contemporaries are going to question why he and the other younger members of his family enjoy such extraordinary privilege without have to earn it somehow. One of the ways to earn it is to prove you have the good sense to not behave this way in the presence of strangers you've just picked up in a bar.

Agreed. It's like 5 steps backward. They were really having a great year.

The only thing I could see them doing to combat the mele, is too simply not acknowledged what happened. No comment. No comment and keep it moving. They will never get those pics off the internet, so they should not have even tried. We can talk here, let Twitter and facebook blow up, but the Palace should stay mum on the subject.

If you are not a fan of nudity, then please stay away from New Orleans during Mardi Gras, especially Fat Tuesday in the French Quarter.

Women stand on balconies expose their breast to complete nudity for plastic beads thrown by guys on the street below. You won't see this many boobs in a strip club.

On one of my visits, Men were flashing their junk all over the place.

It happened, too late to close the barn door. Harry will have to live with these pictures forever on the Internet.

I have to say I find this comment to be very offensive; not so much because it is disrespectful of the Queen, but because it's disrespectful of the elderly.

Some people must think they themselves will never get old!

Sorry, I am old, so I can comment. First of all Harry did nothing that most young men of his age and ability would do. Secondly, it would not be a scandal, in most families as they don't see themselves as Holy as the Lord. The you can't touch the queen crowd, has to realize we have come past all that nonsense, everyone is who they are. He is a nice young man and he is letting off some steam. The issue is most people would not make the front pages. I am past 70, and can see the levity in this.

It's not about the nudity or the partying, at least not for me. It's the fact he let that get out on the internet. He has got to be smarter than this. This was just unbelievably stupid.

When I come on the internet, I know I how I have to conduct myself, because I know things can get back to me. I am not in the public eye, and I know this.

I am not talking about Harry's Vegas trip; I was referring to the previous poster's comment about the Queen and the Depends! I don't find that funny; just wanted to say so.

I totally agree. I actually don't see how this could cause a huge scandal. Now if it were William in the pics then yes there would be hell to pay.

I honestly think everyone needs to give Harry a break. He was drunk. We all do stupid things when we're drunk. And at least he didn't get his butt kicked in France......
