UK papers avoid naked Prince Harry pictures

St James's Palace has confirmed it contacted the Press Complaints Commission (PCC) over the possible use of naked photos of Prince Harry.

The palace had heard a number of UK newspapers were considering using them, a spokesman said. Not one has done so.

It believed publication of the photos - taken in a Las Vegas hotel room - would constitute an invasion of privacy.

Nick Higham looks at whether this restraint from the papers is here to stay.
