Nude Photos of Prince Harry Surface Online

Stuart Wilson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Pictures of a naked Prince Harry at a Las Vegas hotel that surfaced online are real, Buckingham Palace has confirmed.

TMZ posted photos overnight of the prince playing pool in a hotel suite room fully naked.  In one of the photos, reportedly taken on Friday, Harry is seen standing and covering his genitals with his hand.  An unidentified woman, who also appears to be naked, is standing behind him.

In another photo, the 27-year-old prince is bear-hugging a naked woman.

Prince Harry has been on holiday with friends, letting off steam before the next phase of his military duties, sources told ABC News.

The palace said it won't be making any further comments about the nude photos.

"Everybody knows better than to party naked in a room full of strangers without confiscating the cellphones.  That's just Hollywood 101," said ABC News public relations consultant Howard Bragman of Reputation.com.  "There's always deniability, but once the photos are taken, you're caught."

Harry's time in Las Vegas had been low-key.  Harry and Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte faced off Monday in a swimming battle at a pool party, according to video obtained by the New York Daily News. The impromptu faceoff occurred at the XS Nightclub pool at the Wynn Hotel.  Lochte can be seen in the video raising his hands in victory, just as if he'd defeated former rival Michael Phelps for gold.

Harry, third in line to the British throne, has been in Vegas since the weekend.  The prince was spotted on Saturday chilling out a few bungalows away at a pool party Jennifer Lopez hosted at MGM Grand's Wet Republic, according to People magazine.

Israeli Women Strip to Support Egyptian Who Posed Nude

Zoonar/Thinkstock(TEL AVIV, Israel) -- Thirty-eight Israeli women posed semi-nude on Saturday in Tel Aviv in a gesture of solidarity with Aliaa Magda Elmahdy, the Egyptian activist who posted nude photos of herself on her blog last week and was widely criticized, the Israeli news site Ynet reported.

“I felt that when a liberal, enlightened woman in Cairo cannot express herself and gets threats from her state, I should show solidarity,” Or Tepler, the photo’s organizer, told Ynet.

Tepler, 28, created a Facebook event inviting women to gather and pose for a photo “to show support in a non-violent and legitimate way for a woman who is just like us -- young, ambitious, full of dreams,” according to Ynet.

The women are seen holding a banner saying “Love Without Limits” (in Hebrew) and “Homage to Aliaa Elmahdi. Sisters in Israel.”

Elmahdi has not reacted publicly to the photo. Ynet said an email Tepler sent to Elmahdi was unanswered.

A question posted to Elmahdi’s Facebook page asking for comment on the Israeli photo was unanswered.

The photo adds another layer to the already complicated story of Elmahdy’s post and the reaction to it, a story often pitting individual rights, gender, religion and Egyptian politics against each other.

Many Egyptian liberals denounced Elmahdy, either for violating Egyptian norms against nudity or for giving hard-line conservatives a campaign boost just before crucial parliamentary elections.
