(Newser) TMZ has posted photos of a handsome ginger fellow stripped down to his altogether in Las Vegas—and now Clarence House confirms the nude in question is indeed Prince Harry. The clothes apparently came off during a very important mission: a game of strip billiards with a crew of lovelies the royal party boy invited to his VIP hotel suite. Unfortunately for him, a few of the guests snapped souvenir photos. Whatever will the queen say?

"At this time we don't have a comment," a spokesman tells AFP. "We may do later." The confirmation is a rare one from Clarence House (the Prince of Wales' private office), AFP notes, adding that the photos may indicate Harry's security is questionable. One picture shows the prince wearing just a watch and a necklace, though he's covering his private parts. A second shows him hugging another naked person. Harry's Vegas trip also yielded video of him racing Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte in a nightclub pool.
