One Direction have defended Prince Harry following his nude photo scandal.

Prince Harry caused controversy last month after pictures showing him naked after a game of strip billiards in Las Vegas surfaced on the internet.

However, the boyband's members have now told E! Online that they sympathise with the royal.

Louis Tomlinson suggested that Prince Harry is a "strong figure, because he's real", while Zayn Malik admitted that a "downside" of being the third in line to the throne is having "to be aware of people's opinions".

Liam Payne added: "A lot of people would have gone away on holiday and whatever, it doesn't matter to them. For him - it matters."

Lady GaGa and Rupert Murdoch are among the other famous faces who have offered their support to Prince Harry, while the royal joked about the scandal at a recent public appearance.
