Celebrity website TMZ has posted photos of what appears to be the bachelor royal, stark naked, during a game of strip billiards in a hotel suite.
The Prince has been in Vegas winding down after a busy few weeks on royal duties at the Olympics.
One picture shows Harry, stark naked but for a wristwatch and a necklace. His hands cup his genitals. His face is turned toward the television set in the suite. And his body partially shields that of another person, also naked.
According to CNN,a second photo shows him hugging a woman from behind next to a pool table. Both are naked.
Buckingham Palace hasn’t yet responded to the leak to confirm if it is in fact Prince Harry. A royal rep said: “We have no comment to make on the photos at this time.”
However, the man in the photos is wearing the same necklace as one Harry was spotted wearing earlier this week.
TMZ reports: “Harry, along with a large entourage, went down to the hotel bar and met a bunch of hot chicks… and invited them up to his VIP suite.”
Britain’s Daily Telegraph newspaper website said the publication of the photographs “risks embarrassing Buckingham Palace and raises questions about the Prince’s security arrangements.”
It has also been reported earlier that the Prince challenged US swimming superstar Ryan Lochte to a swimming race in a nightclub pool at 3am one morning.
According to The Telegraph, Harry was said to have won the race after an Essex holidaymaker clung on to the legs of Lochte, a five-time Olympics gold medallist.
Prince Harry dived into the pool at 3am still wearing his jeans. Lochte beat the royal in a breaststroke race, before raising his hands in the air and hugging him.
However, in another race, described on Twitter by Essex holidaymaker Adam Aley, who was at the club with friend Tom Sims, Harry apparently beat the Olympian.
The race comes five months after the Prince challenged Jamaican sprinter Bolt to a 30m race in Kingston during his official tour of the Caribbean – discovering that the only sure-fire way to beat him was by cheating.
27-year-old Harry, who is third in line to the throne, is no stranger to controversy.
In 2002, 16-year-old Harry faced accusations of under-age drinking and cannabis use. Three years later in 2005, photos of Harry were splashed across the front page of The Sun newspaper wearing a Nazi soldier’s uniform to a fancy dress party, accompanied by the headline “Harry the Nazi.”
Harry later apologized for the incident: “I am very sorry if I caused any offense.”
The pictures of naked Prince are unlikely to please his Grandma.
“Prince William shows his cojones by rescuing stranded women in the ocean. Prince Harry shows his cojones by, well, showing his cojones,” tweeted Jennifer Burke with Canada’s CTV network.
She refers to the fact that last week, Prince William helped save a teenage girl who was in danger of drowning off the coast of Wales in his role as Royal Air Force search and rescue pilot.
“The Queen must be sooo proud that Prince Harry showed us his crown jewels!!!! Lol,” said Danielle Monaro, part of the Elvis Duran And The Morning Show, a syndicated radio program.
