(AP) The prince has no clothes but British newspapers aren't running the pictures.


The country's scandal-loving tabloids devoted many pages Thursday to the story of Prince Harry's naked romp in a Las Vegas hotel suite. But all heeded a warning from royal officials that printing the images already seen by millions on the Internet would infringe on the prince's privacy.


Some media-watchers say a high-profile public inquiry into phone-hacking and other tabloid wrongdoing had tamed Britain's once-rambunctious press.


Former tabloid editor Neil Wallis said fallout from the hacking scandal had left newspapers "terrified of their own shadow."


The Sun tabloid came up with a creative solution to the photo problem for Thursday's edition, getting a staff member named Harry to recreate the naked pose on its front page.
