3 600 complaints over nude Harry pics

London - A press watchdog says it has received some 3 600 complaints over The Sun's decision to publish nude photos of Britain's Prince Harry.

The tabloid was the only national newspaper to carry the pictures, which first appeared online and quickly became an international talking point.

They captured the third in line to Britain's throne frolicking in the nude with an unidentified woman after what was alleged to have been a game of strip billiards in his Las Vegas hotel room.

Royal officials argued that the photos were a breach of the prince's privacy, but the officials weren't among those who'd filed complaints with Britain's Press Complaints Commission.

That makes it unlikely any action will be taken against The Sun, which said it published the photos in the public interest.

    The photos printed in The Sun was in poor taste and Harry should be entitled to his privacy, Prince or no Prince! He is human!

    Indeed in poor taste but let's not forget that he is a public figure and his holidays are paid by the tax payer which makes it perhaps correct to know what his up to ??

      that's a load of croc arthur.salvado...every public servant & military officer is paid by tax money. that does not entitle their privacy to be invaded. The tart who took he pics and sold them is the disgrace here.
