Magazine crowns Harry's nude pictures

Kiwi magazine readers can see the nude photographs of Prince Harry - almost.

Woman's Day bought the rights to the controversial photos of Prince Harry romping in the nude during a party at his Las Vegas hotel suite but has run them very small inside its latest edition with a strategically placed crown covering his front and back.

The photos, which the Herald on Sunday understands went for well under $5000 because of the prominence they had received online already, don't even make the front cover of the magazine.

Publisher Paul Dykzeul said, "These photos were the most talked about images of the week worldwide, with millions of people viewing them online already. Clearly they're of public interest. Our Woman's Day readers are entitled to see them too."

The magazine was being handed out at the open day at The Block houses in Takapuna yesterday.

It is understood the NZ Woman's Weekly would not have published the nude photos of the Prince.

In the UK, the Sun has been the only paper to print the pictures, under the headline "Heir It Is", and by yesterday nearly 900 people had complained about the tabloid's decision.

Meanwhile, there could be more to come for the wayward Prince - a prominent British public relations guru said he'd been approached by two women who claimed to have more material on Prince Harry from his Vegas visit.
