(Newser) – The chastisement continues for poor Prince Harry after he was caught buck naked on film. He even "let himself down" when he took off his clothes while playing strip billiards in his Las Vegas suite last week, say friends. "He's very disappointed with the fact that he allowed it to happen," a source tells the London Times. It's likely his planned appearance at the opening ceremony of the upcoming Paralympic Games will be scrapped, reports People. A friend of his late mum, though, defends the party prince. "He is absolutely entitled to a private life," said Rosa Mocton.

The photos of the nude prince, first published by TMZ, burned up the Internet in the US. But because of strict privacy laws in Britain, Rupert Murdoch's Sun was the only British newspaper that dared to publish the shots on the other side of the pond. Some observers believe it was Murdoch's way of proving he's still a force to contend with, despite being battered by the phone hacking scandal, notes the Guardian.
