Prince Harry bares all for Las Vegas

CREATED Aug. 22, 2012

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- What happens in Las Vegas does not stay here anymore.

Prince Harry is learning that the hard way this morning.

We heard that Prince Harry made an appearance at MGM Grand's Wet Republic Pool this weekend.

He met Olympian Ryan Lochte there and challenged him to a race in the pool, which he lost.

Now there is this.

This morning, the Buckingham Palace is confirming that Prince Harry -- the third in line for the throne -- can be seen in a pair of racy pictures that surfaced on the popular gossip website, TMZ.

Prince Harry appears to be completely naked, cupping his "crown jewels" in one of the photos.

There are also unidentified women in the pictures, either naked or nearly naked.

According to TMZ, the pictures were taken in a private suite at the Wynn Las Vegas last Friday night. The prince and his entourage reportedly met a group of girls at a bar and invited them upstairs for a game of strip billiards.

This is not the first time that Harry has been caught in a controversial position. There were reports of him drinking and using drugs when he was still underage.

In 2005, photos surfaced of him wearing a Nazi uniform to a costume party and a couple of years ago, video of him using ethnic slurs while on military duty surfaced.

We don't know if Harry will have to apologize for this latest matter. All the palace has said is that the prince is on "private holiday."

TMZ has also reported that Harry has returned to England.
