Naked Prince Harry Earns Las Vegas a Fortune
Prince Harry has helped Las Vegas earn a fortune in free publicity.
It is thought that the recent scandal involving his naked pictures gave the city $23 million worth of free publicity as the images were viewed by over 154 million people.
It seems that the scandal has not affected his chance of becoming King.
The odds on him being next on the thrown have remained the same at 16/1 at Paddy Power; he is behind his brother William (11/10) and favourite his father Charles (4/6).
A report from the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority (LVCVA), Harry’s strip billiards incident has given Las Vegas a major tourism boost.
According to TMZ.com Tom Collins, the LVCVA Board Chairman said “God bless Prince Harry. He made us a bunch of money”.
The city took a risk on a tourism campaign connected to TMZ’s posting of mobile phone pictures of Harry naked in his $8,000 a night suite at the Wynn and Encore hotel.
Apparently it is not known exactly how much Harry’s latest scandal boosted profits in Las Vegas, but officials have said that there is no doubt that Harry’s naked antics had a positive effect on the city’s economy.
