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."

So....the prince's handlers are to blame? Does the prince need handlers to keep his clothes on? I see...the prince needs handlers to TELL him to keep his clothes on. Riiiiight. Yeah, it's all the handlers' fault. Uh HUH.

So Harry doesn't have a brain of his own to know right from wrong, he has to have BABYsitters? Harry's that immature age age 27? He knows cell cameras exist, this guy must be a totally dumb doofus to be that stupid! How about some self-respect for himself and his family instead of acting like a fool 17 year old? Doesn't matter if it's "Vegas", that's just stupid, where you're at has nothing to do with common sense and decency. Harry is an idiot and the family has a right to be totally embarrassed. Harry is a total embarrassement, no one wants to see their kid act like a naked fool plastered the world over. Wonder how many sexual diseases he gets from that sexual escaped? Like it just stopped with the photos? No way!

Uh    

It is against the law to publish a picture of someone in a private area.(in the UK) without their consent.. The tabloids are going nuts as they can't legally publish "Harry" pictures. Harry has always reminded me of a stupid kid with a silver spoon up his butt who never grew up. On top of that, he looks like Howdy Doody.. As far as the situation, it isn't a big deal here, but over there it is a major calamity. One can experience all the pomp and cir***stance of his linage, but it comes at a price.

I think this accentuates the difference between the mentality of what a U.S. Secret Service agent or agents would do vs. the U.K security team. the U.S. Secret Service people would do***ent what he/she witnessed, write a manuscript, and then contact Simon and Schuster to see if they would publish a biography or memoir after either the protectee left office or after the agent left their job. with the U.K security team, you find out maybe a week after the snafu took place.

If a 28-year-old army officer can't behave himself without a constant team of babysitters, he has some serious issues.

This only bolsters prince Harry as an Alpha-Male. Rough, ready, and fearless. Not unlike his uncle, the Duke of York, Prince Andrew. He will be a valuable asset to his brother, William, once William is King.

Makes sense to be pissed at his security, they should have made sure those pictures were never taken or at least never made public. Don't blame Harry, he is young and has his mom's crazy fun side to him and after serving in Afghanistan, he wanted to have fun. The Royals obviously know he likes to party, perhaps they need a better security detail around him to make sure leaks don't happen.

Pissed at his handler? What is he a animal that is on a leash? Be pissed at him. He isn't 14. He is a grown man and should have known this wouldn't stay private. With all he has had at the expense of the British at least he could have some sense of what is considered proper behavior and not be an embarassment

Like most of you said........he is a 20 something dude enjoying life. His only issue is he is famous. Kudos to the guy for living life as he wants. And yes alot of us Americans are too uptight and making way too much out of this incident.
