The story of Prince Harry in Las Vegas has longer legs than members of the bachelorette pool party he crashed during the recent romp. But he's reportedly got the support of the palace behind him.
Nude photos of the prince surfaced online last week (in case you hadn't heard), sparking Internet commentary and minor outrage over a wild night he spent in a hotel suite at the Wynn casino.
What started as a look in the other direction from the royal family has become an endorsement of Prince Charles' youngest, and a plea for privacy.
"He didn't do anything unlawful," a palace source told People. "What he did was entirely his own business."
And big business, too: Harry has dominated newspaper and tabloid covers in his native Britain and in the U.S, with social media exploding in his favor.
