Prince Harry

Royal Fam PISSED

at Prince's Handlers

8/23/2012 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Picture of Prince Harry partying naked in Las Vegas.The Royal Family is FURIOUS over the Prince Harry naked photo fiasco ... and the anger isn't  directed solely at Harry -- we're told the family is also pointing the finger at the Prince's minders and personal security team. 

Here's what we know.  The night of the naked Vegas hotel party, Harry was hanging with two male friends ... after some boozing, the group decided to bring a bunch of chicks they had just met back to Harry's VIP suite at Encore.

That's when Harry's people dropped the ball.

When the girls entered the room,  we're told the ladies were NOT asked to surrender their phones ...  an epic failure considering Harry's well-documented wild side.

As the party fired up, several girls began to snap pics on their cell-phones ... and one of Harry's minders lackadaisically told the women, "awww, come on .. no photos."

Sources who were there tell TMZ ...  the minders were asleep at the wheel, enjoying the party more than protecting the Prince from himself.

After more boozing, the clothes came off ... and more photos were taken, in plain view of the handlers, yet Harry's people did nothing. 

TMZ spoke with several people in the Las Vegas VIP scene who tell us they see situations like this every day and it could have been easily contained, but as one source put it, "Harry's team acted like a bunch of amateurs."

Or maybe Harry knows the way to become famous in the US is by leaking a sex tape or having naked pictures of yourself posted online and allowed the pictures to be taken.

Really? The handlers? Isn't it time at almost the age of 28 that Harry learns how to control Harry? This seems like the stuff 18 year olds do. He is almost 30 and should get his act together. I don't find this charming or cute, just totally self-indulgent and irresponsible. And what is exactly is he getting away from with this vacation? He was just partying away at the Olympics and lives surrounded by "yes" people and tons of money. Pathetic.

Its always someone elses fault. Please. First of all I dont see the big deal, nudity is normal & he was in a private enclosed space.Harry is not a child. Im so over this royalty stuff anyway. These ppl might be rich but theyr human beings. If its anyones fault, its Harrys. Im sure more pics will surface soon, and I hope those might be more revealing, he does have a banging body!!

I guess you would need a hnadler when you monkey around. The boy was just having some fun and got photographed doing it. I'm sure glad there wasn't camera cell phones when I was sowing my wild oats.
We can all learn a lesson from this and that would be "not everything you do in Vegas stays in Vegas"

Instead of blaming the guards, blame Prince Harry! He partied naked with several female and male persons .. Obviously this is self-inflicted by the Prince himself.

can TMZ confirm if its really true this particular hotel charge up to $8,000 per night?? I swear the world is gone crazy. Some people have way too much $$ - all handed down by "royal" decree. while others have none & continue to suffer. Personally I cant see myself playing any nude game/romp with a group, much less random strangers!! But to each his own. Live your life Harry. We hope to see the other pics soon!!

I was wondering about a security team and how, if he had one, they allowed this to happen. Guess they're looking for a new job....I'll apply for the opening....get away b1tches!

And the Royal Fam isn't pissed at YOU, Harvey, for starting all this mess? Just because someone sends you pictures doesn't mean you have to post them for the world to see. Yesterday I admit this seemed kind of funny, because Harry is smokin' hot, but after a day of thinking what this will do to Harry, after all the work he's done - and he really has -he brings the humble, normal human being side to the monarchy - was it really worth the money you made, Harvey?

I can see you doing this to some azzhole like Charlie S., but Harry is a nice kid. He works very hard, is humble, likes to hang with normal people -- he's made normal people like the monarchy again. This could ruin him. He really has done some fantastic work. Yes, he's young and has a wild streak, but what soldier doesn't?

I mean, if you're going to expose someone for being a fraud, go for it. But just like David Letterman, Harry has never pretended he didn't have a taste for the ladies or the drink -- and Harry IS single. We all know he's a playboy, but what prince ISN'T? Charles was even a playboy back in the day, if you can believe that.

I wish you'd just pick your battles -- fight the fight that needs to be won, and things like this -- there's no winner, Harvey. The monarchy will probably hide him away somewhere, and the good that he was doing won't get done. His life will forever be changed, and for what? So you get a lot more clicks on your website?

The handlers FAILED at their job. Were they drinking and handling the women as well??? Harry needs to GROW UP. He has failed the British citizens that pay for his safety.

How much did TMZ pay for these photos? Do all the other outlets that published them pay TMZ??? Was causing this problem for the royal family and Harry profitable to TMZ?

This kind of talk about minders and personal security just goes to show that neither Harry or William are really actively in the military. Their service is just ceremonial. If they were really active duty military officers, they wouldn't be able to get off work as often as they do. They can go to the Olympics and party whenever they want to.

Do you really believe they are in Afghanistan for months at a time or away from home for months or years at a time like normal active duty soldiers?

Hell no. They are special.

Harry has no shame, he shouldn't be behaving that way, he is embarrasing his family, I don't think they are too pleased with his immature antics!

AREN'T YOU GOING TO TAKE THESE PICTURES DOWN? WE ALREADY KNOW THAT YOU MOST OF YOU WISHED TO HAVE SEEN THE REAL THING BUT THIS IS HARDLY A SUBSTITUTE. HARVEY, WE KNOW THAT YOU LOVE LOOKING AT THESE PICS BUT IT IS SICKENING TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. BE A LITTLE MORE DISCREET.
