THOSE NAKED photos of Prince Harry went around the world yesterday after being leaked to TMZ. But the media in Britain were left in a bind, after the royal family reportedly threatened legal action against anyone publishing them.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the office of Prince Charles issued a stern warning to newspapers that publishing the pics would be “a breach of the prince’s privacy”.
But the photos – which according to the Times were being shopped to UK media for £5,000 – represented a huge potential payday. So what to do? Well, there were a couple of creative solutions.
