Prince Harry’s nude photos shot during a wild, drunken partying spree in Vegas created a furor in the viral world late Tuesday. Apparently, the repercussions on him personally and professionally have been swift.

Understandingly, the Royals are not too pleased with the third-in-line to the British throne’s scandalous antics. Among those feeling let down is elder brother Prince William, who found out on Wednesday morning that Harry’s nude pictures were circling the web.

A royal insider told Us Weekly that Duchess Kate’s husband "William was told about the photos this morning. He's not impressed." Naturally, the staid Duke of Cambridge is quite disturbed over the entire unsavory episode. After all it’s a question of the royal family’s reputation, which has been riding high following Wills and Kate’s wedding and the recent Olympics.

TMZ published two pictures, taken in a Las Vegas hotel suite showing Prince Harry in the buff partying with two naked women (or possibly one lady snapped twice). While Buckingham Palace confirmed that the pictures were indeed those of Prince Harry, but refused to comment on it. But these images could seriously dent the royal family’s reputation, reports Huffington Post.

Also as of date there is no word about how other members of the royal family namely Prince Charles, Queen Elizabeth or Harry’s favorite, sister-in-law has taken to this latest scandal to hit the British royals. Probably they are biding their time, hoping the scandal will just blow off.

In this context one inside source disclosed to The Huffington Post: "The Palace is just hoping no more images emerge. As cheeky as these pictures are, they are just happy his crown jewels were not exposed … at least for now."

Meanwhile, what about the fall out of Prince Harry’s hard partying, professionally? After all, the British prince is a qualified military helicopter pilot. He is a Captain of the British Army Air Corps, who happened to be on leave during the scandalous weekend. Naturally, he will have some explaining to do to his superiors.

"He will be reprimanded [by the army]. Officers should never bring the Service into disrepute, whether on or off duty," a senior military source told Us magazine. "This display of social misbehavior has raised eyebrows."

But, the same source assures that while Harry may be censured he "won't be dismissed" from the army. “This type of behavior is not expected of someone his age and rank. They will call him in when he gets back and want to talk to him about it." When asked by Us about taking punitive action, a Ministry of Defense spokesman would not comment.

However, one high-profile royal watcher Lady Gaga is ‘not mad’ at the shocking pictures, in-fact she’s more empathetic opining that royals are human too. The maverick pop star tweeted to her makeup artist Tara Savelo on Wednesday "HOLY MOTHER HARRY LOOKS FIT ... I hope no ones mad at him for that, I'm certainly not ‪#RoyalsArePeopleToo."

In fact Gaga, who is no stranger to nude photos, was against Prince Harry’s personal life being splashed all over the web and in the print media "But truly," she added, "f*** off to whatever s***ty friend took those picture and leaked them." The royal family might agree with the sentiments expressed, though they may not necessarily use the same words.

Meanwhile, singer Boy George sent out an amusing tweet writing, "Prince Harry, where was his security? People are so cheap, such rubbish photos! The Queen should behead TMZ and send the bitches to da Tower."

Update: Prince Harry is back in UK and already the fall out has begun. British tabloids, newspapers or television stations will not be able to use the scandalous photographs of Harry, despite the ease with which it can be found with a simple Google search by any user worldwide.

The reason St James’s Palace has warned the British media that the Royal Family regards using the pictures as a gross invasion of the prince’s privacy and anyone misusing it will be issued legal notice by Prince Charles' lawyers, reports The Daily Mail
