Billiards will never be the same. But what about the perception of the Royal Family?
Now that photos of a naked Prince Harry playing strip billiards at an after-hours party in his Las Vegas hotel suite have been seen far and wide – and from every other angle – questions arise as to whether what he did is conduct unbecoming for a prince, or strictly an example of how down-to-earth this child of extraordinary privilege really is.
Royal watcher Ingrid Seward told PEOPLE that being caught with his pants down gives the 27-year-old an "endearing" quality, while on Thursday's Today show, outraged British journalist Martin Bashir said his countrymen and women may not stand for their tax money going to protect members of the Royal Family who carry on in such a fashion.
