Prince Harry photos are splashed all over the world, Prince Harry in the flesh, quite literally, but are the British upset?
His fellow soldiers have set up a Facebook page to support the man.
The hide-bound officers are still in a lather over the Las Vegas strip billiards tournament that the Prince apparently lost. They don't see how a naked royal cavorting with a naked woman reflects today's British Army in a positive light.
Doesn't Harry's photo prove that it's a man's life in today's army? Why, it's a recruiting opportunity.
Back to Facebook. Soldiers and their wives (or girlfriends) are invited to salute Harry in a naked photo that will be posted to the page, provided there is no overt nudity. Like Harry, a gentleman is expected to cover his mickey, but other than that, let creativity be your guide.
Pictures are coming in from various units stationed in Afghanistan, where soldiers have time on their hands and not many ways to fill the hours, or at least to fill the hours in which they are not getting shot at.
It just goes to show that for some members of the British public, they don't much care that an unmarried man got naked. Like many celebrities, Harry failed to consider the possibility that someone would have a cell phone camera and see an opportunity to score some easy cash, but it isn't the first strip billiards game that's been played and it won't be the last.
The Prince is still said to be facing some sort of dressing down from his superior officers, but Harry has already been punished. It's said that his girlfriend, model Cressida Bonas, dumped him when she saw the pictures.
Sure it might not be much of a hardship on the lad. There's plenty of other fish in the sea, and not all of them play billiards or take pictures at parties.
