Prince Harry Naked In Vegas: 3,600 Complain About The Sun Printing Nude Photos Of Royal
There have been 3,600 complaints to the press watchdog about naked photographs of Prince Harry published in The Sun.
The Press Complaints Commission (PCC) said they all came from members of the public and none from St James’s Palace or any other representatives of the royal.
The tabloid became the first British newspaper to carry the pictures on Friday, arguing that the move was in the public interest and a “crucial” test of the country’s free press.
The naked pictures scandal has left Prince Harry red-faced…but who’s to blame?
The pictures of him frolicking in the nude with an unnamed woman while on holiday in Las Vegas made headlines around the world but St James’s Palace asked UK papers, via the PCC, to respect Harry’s privacy.
Sun managing editor David Dinsmore said the paper had “thought long and hard” about whether to use the pictures and said it was an issue of freedom of the press rather than because it was moralising about Harry’s actions.
