I do think there is a public interest in the publication of the photographs, though.
And it lies in the question that, to a large extent, is remaining unasked or being suppressed by the media.
According to the BBC report:
The Sun said in a statement that in publishing the photos it was not making any moral judgement about the prince's activities.The unasked question is of course precisely the moral question that the Sun is disregarding.
It said: "He often sails close to the wind for a royal - but he's 27, single and a soldier.
Is it morally right for anyone - be they third in line to the throne, be they 27 years old, be they single or be they a soldier, or just any one of these - to be cavorting naked with others in their hotel room?
And it is interesting that, in so far as the BBC reporting does cover this aspect, the question being asked is not one about whether or not the behaviour is moral, but whether or not it is normal: Harry photos: Is it normal to drink and end up naked?
