Naked Prince Harry appears in the Sun (+video)

The Sun newspaper became the first British tabloid to print nude Los Vegas pictures of Prince Harry and an unnamed woman, Friday. Defying a request from the royal family's lawyers, the Sun said its readers had a right to see the images.

The Sun tabloid on Friday published photographs of Prince Harry naked in Las Vegas, becoming the first British publication to defy a request from the royal family's lawyers.

On Thursday, newspapers in Britain did not publish the images of Queen Elizabeth's grandson naked with an unnamed woman while on holiday in Las Vegas, following a request from St James's Palace, the official residence of the prince, through the Press Complaints Commission to respect his privacy.

But, almost half of the front page of Friday's Sun newspaper shows a photograph of the naked prince covering up his genitals with his hands while an apparently naked woman hides behind his back. On Thursday, the Sun published a similar photo that was staged, but wasn't actually the prince or one of the women in Las Vegas.

The Sun, part of the British arm of Rupert Murdoch's News Corp, said millions of people around the world had already seen the pictures and its readers had a right to see them.
