Britons back naked prince

London - More than two-thirds of adults in Britain thought Prince Harry cavorting naked with women at a Las Vegas party was acceptable behaviour, according to a poll out on Sunday.

The YouGov survey in The Sunday Times newspaper found that 68% thought the third in line to the throne's antics were acceptable for a young, single man having fun on a private holiday, with 22% saying it was not.

About 75% still had a positive view of the 27-year-old army helicopter pilot.

While the two images of Harry are widely available on the Internet and abroad, only The Sun newspaper has published them in Britain, saying it was striking a blow for press freedom.

About 61% thought media baron Rupert Murdoch's tabloid was wrong to do so, with 25% saying Britain's biggest-selling newspaper had been right to print them.

YouGov sampled 1 731 adults on Thursday and Friday for the poll on whether Harry's behaviour was acceptable and 694 adults on Friday for the poll on The Sun publishing the images.
