Nude images of the British royal partying in a Las Vegas hotel room emerged on Wednesday (August 20) on US website TMZ, and have since appeared in publications worldwide.
However, St James's Palace quickly told the British media that it believes any publication of the images would constitute an intrusion into the Prince's privacy.
Coming under the headline 'Heir it is!', the photos carried the sub-heading 'Pic of naked Harry you've already seen on the internet'.
What do you think of The Sun's decision to ignore the Palace's request to keep away from the photos? Should they have respected Prince Harry's privacy, or were they simply protecting "the freedom of the press", as managing editor David Dinsmore has said?
