Harry Situation

The Press Complaints Commission, apparently prodded from the shadows by Buckingham Palace and Clarence House, has warned the British media not to publish photos of a nude Prince Harry cavorting in his Las Vegas suite with his friends and some lovelies. The UK press complied. Nevertheless, the pix are widely available on the internet, courtesy of TMZ and other sites. In addition, the Irish Evening Herald, a paper across the Irish Sea, published the pictures.

Now, the tabloid paper the Sun has broken ranks and published the photographs, and complaints have poured in to the PCC. It's not clear what, if anything, the response of the PCC and the Royal Family will be.
