Prince Harry, that model of royal poise, went to Las Vegas this weekend and showed off the royal family jewels.

Harry invited a crew of partiers up to his VIP suite on Friday night, and they decided to play a not-so-innocent game of strip pool. Harry and (at least) one other woman ended up getting completely naked. Some of the partiers snapped blurry cell phone photos of the Prince, which of course ended up on TMZ.

A rep for the Royal Family says they're not pleased with the behavior of #3 in line to the throne, and The Guardian has suggested stripping Harry of his title:

Imagine being the Queen today. It's your diamond jubilee year and you've clocked dozens of hours celebrating round the country, standing in the freezing rain on a Thames barge and pretending to parachute into the Olympic stadium. From a PR point of view this has been one of your best years ever. Until now. You were back on top. And now this. It's tiresome and embarrassing and has nothing to do with all the work you've done. But it's become the story and you have to deal with it.

Dai Davies, the former head of royal protection at the Metropolitan Police Service, told the Telegraph that providing security for someone like Prince Harry must be a nightmare: "British security costs in excess of £120 million a year but on the other hand, [royals] have to have a life and they didn't choose to be royals...I don't envy their [security officers'] job. It must be a nightmare at times, trying to ensure that he doesn't get into these kinds of scrapes."Prince Harry's other extracurricular activities this weekend includedracing Ryan Lochte in the hotel pool.
