Sorry, Royal Family!
Once a nude photo of a celebrity is taken, even YOU can't stop it from finding its way into the public sphere!
But according to new reports, they're going to dry their damndest to stop JUST THAT from happening!
On behalf of the Queen and company, London-based law firm Harbottle & Lewis has sent legal letters to ALL of the big newspapers and publishers in Britain that claim that the naked photos of Prince Harry taken during his trip to Las Vegas over the weekend are in breach of the Press Complaints Commission code, essentially with the goal to put a media blackout on the country and block their release!
But as we all know by now, all one needs to do to find the snaps is poke around the internet for all of .3 seconds!
“In an effort to sweep this under the carpet as quickly as possible, Harbottle & Lewis have told the British papers not to run Prince Harry’s naked pictures. The lawyers said any one publishing them would be in breach of the PCC. The media outlets were also warned that their privileges for access to media events featuring the royal family could be restricted if they did use the pictures. Of course, the British media is very careful when a royal scandal is revealed nowadays and has to bow down to the royal family’s demands. But despite the ban on the UK press, the pictures have already circulated around the world on the internet. Everyone has seen them, so Harry’s blushes will never be spared – not in this day and age.”
Seems kind of pointless, really!
If people want to see it, they're going to seek it out and find it, regardless of whether or not it's published in the papers!
But hey! Maybe they all need to approach this whole thing for a different angle!
In fact, if anything, Harry has made MANY people around the world VERY HAPPY!
Embrace his beautiful ginge body and let the public keep on enjoying it! LOLz!
