U.K. newspapers steer clear of naked Harry photos

LONDON — The prince has no clothes, but most British newspapers aren't running the pictures.

The country's scandal-loving tabloids devoted many pages Thursday to the story of Prince Harry's naked romp.

While all initially heeded a warning from royal officials that printing the images would infringe on the prince's privacy, the Sun tabloid said late Thursday it would publish the images in today's edition — making it the first British paper to put a naked Harry on display.

The pictures will run with the headline "Heir it is!"

The Rupert Murdoch-owned tabloid said it will run the images because the issue has become about freedom of the press.
