LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- St. James’s Palace has confirmed that Prince Harry is indeed the person featured in a series of nude photos that surfaced on Tuesday, the BBC reported.
TMZ posted photos of the British Royal, 27, without his clothes on, while playing strip poker in Las Vegas over the weekend with pals and some ladies they had reportedly just met.
In the first photo, Harry can be seen covering his nether regions with his hands, while looking at a TV. A young lady in a similar state of undress is cuddled up behind him.
The second photo shows Harry’s backside, as he cozies up to another disrobed doll near a pool table.
The website reported the partying happened on Friday night in a fancy hotel suite.
Beyond confirming that Harry is seen in the photos, the Palace is not commenting any further.

The photos were first met with some speculation as there have been plenty of look-a-like photos that have surfaced of fake royals and royal associates recently.
In late February, the UK edition of Cosmopolitan ran a photo that featured look-a-like Prince Harry and Prince William partying – naked – after a polo match.
And, in November 2011, months after the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate, photos were published of look-a-like Pippa and faux Harry looking disheveled, the morning after, wearing different clothing. Click HERE to see those shots.
