Mayor of Las Vegas to Prince Harry: COME BACK!

EXCLUSIVE

The Mayor of Las Vegas is making a serious plea to Prince Harry now that he's back from Afghanistan -- COME BACK TO VEGAS, ASAP!!!

Harry completed his 5-month military stint in the Middle East this week ... and once he got out of the war zone, he finally broke his silence about his Sin City naked photo scandal to the U.K. media ... saying, "I probably let myself down."

But TMZ spoke with Mayor Carolyn G. Goodman ... who thinks Harry deserves a Vegas do-over ... and tells us the city is ready to roll out the red carpet for His Royal Highness when he's ready to come back.

"We’re absolutely excited he’s home," Goodman says ... adding, "Prince Harry is always welcome in Las Vegas. When he was here everyone was talking about it. We welcome him back with open arms.”

Breaking News

It took 5 months, but Prince Harry is finally talking about his infamous game of strip billiards during his Las Vegas party weekend ... telling the media, "I probably let myself down."

Harry spoke with U.K. reporters after completing a 5-month military stint in Afghanistan -- and that's when someone asked about the pics ... first published on TMZ.com.

"I probably let myself down," Harry said ... adding, "I let my family down, I let other people down."

He continued ... "At the end of the day, I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy ... The way I was treated ... I don't think is acceptable."

"Back home all my close friends rallied round me and were great."

Harry said he considers the incident a "classic example of me probably being too much army and not enough prince".

We broke the story ... Harry had invited a bunch of random women he met at a hotel bar up to his VIP suite for a party back in August ... and during the shindig he stripped down to his birthday suit after losing a game of strip billiards.

Prince Harry Naked Scandal GREAT for Vegas

Breaking News

Prince Harry's penis is being hailed as a HERO by Vegas officials ... 'cause experts say the free worldwide publicity Sin City enjoyed from the naked billiards scandal is worth roughly $23 MILLION.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority issued a report, in which it says the pictures of Harry romping around his hotel room with a hot naked lady has reached an estimated 154 MILLION PEOPLE worldwide since TMZ broke the story back in August.

The agency says it's unable to track how much tourism has been generated due to the publicity ... but LVCVA Board Chairman Tom Collins is clearly optimistic ... saying at a recent board meeting, "God bless Prince Harry. He made us a bunch of money."

FYI -- The LVCVA had launched an advertising campaign for the city earlier in the summer warning tourists to "know the code" ... what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

When someone broke the code and shared the pics of the naked Prince, some officials felt the timing couldn't have been better.

Attempts to reach the Prince were unsuccessful ... 'cause he's fighting in the Middle East.

Prince Harry Royal Palace Won't Sue Sun Over Naked Pics

Breaking News

The Royals apparently believe Prince Harry has a place in The Sun, because they've decided not to take legal action against the U.K. tabloid for publishing Harry's naked pics.

The Royals have concluded, "We remain of the opinion that a hotel room is a private space where its occupants would have a reasonable expectation of privacy. Prince Harry is currently focused entirely on his deployment in Afghanistan, so to pursue a complaint relating to his private life would not be appropriate at this time and would prove to be a distraction."

The Royals tried to put the kibosh on the pics -- obtained by TMZ -- which were taken in the hotel room where a number of people were partying with the Prince.

Prince Harry PHOTO PARANOIA After Naked Romp

EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry realized he made a huge mistake by allowing girls with cameras into his Vegas hotel room Friday night -- because just two days later in Sin City ... he was INCREDIBLY camera shy, refusing to pose for any pics with fans.

TMZ spoke with one of the girls Harry was hanging out with at a pool party Sunday night -- two days after the naked pics were taken -- and when she asked him to pose with her and her friends, Harry politely refused, saying. "No photos please."

It's a big shift in behavior from Friday -- when Harry invited several strange girls into his Vegas suite, and stripped naked in front of their cameras.

It didn't end there either, Harry happily goofed around at Wet Republic the next day -- probably the most photographed pool party in town.

But by Sunday night, Harry had grown tired of all the cameras.

As for his security ... our source says Harry was SURROUNDED -- in fact, she noticed at least 10 handlers around the pool. According to her, one of the security guards was even in the water with a waterproof cell phone (for aquatic emergencies).

But photos or no photos -- our girl says Harry was really flirty ... saying he was glad she made it to the pool party, and nodding to her bikini.

Harry, you dog.

EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry can now get naked in Vegas and actually get paid for it ... 'cause the people at Chippendales were so impressed with the nakie pics, they've officially offered him a job.

A rep for the bowtie bunch tells TMZ ... "Chippendales at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino are reaching out to the royalty to gauge his interest in being our next guest host."

"We figured that since he seems to enjoy taking his clothes off in Las Vegas, why not do it on stage at the #1 Male Revue in the World."
