St James's Palace has decided not to complain to Britain's press watchdog over The Sun's use of naked photos of Prince Harry in Las Vegas.

A palace spokesman claims lodging a complaint would distract Prince Harry from his duties in Afghanistan and so "would not be prudent".

Makes sense. Like the Cambridges, Harry has won in the court of public opinion and most people have moved on.

I think there might be a little public outrage over too loud a complaint. I think most of the world, or at least the bits I have information about, sees it as what it is. Harry was silly and got busted. Unpleasant, not nice of the other party who released the photos, but still - it was ... silly.

And Harry himself has not uttered a word of complaint. For me, this is the rub. The wronged party, in this case Harry, has not said "no" and he had no real expectation of privacy amongst strangers in a strange land, so to speak.

YMMV

I just hope it doesn't stop him from visiting the US again. Though his sister in law was photographed naked in France so it could happen anywhere. I guess the moral of the story is keep your clothes on.
