PRINCE HARRY: Britain's royal family is standing behind Prince Harry after nude photos of him at a Las Vegas party last week were published around the world.

"He didn't do anything unlawful," a palace source told People.com about the 27-year-old prince, who is third in line for the British throne behind his father, Charles, and brother, William. "What he did was entirely his own business."

Harry, who is Queen Elizabeth II's grandson, has been keeping a low profile since the photos were published, but he is to resume his official duties in London by attending the Paralympics Friday and WellChild Awards ceremony Monday, People.com said.

"I've always wanted to be a mom," Madison, 33, told the magazine. "But I thought it would take longer!"

Madison is best known as one of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner's girlfriends, who were featured on the reality television series "The Girls Next Door." She also starred in her own reality series "Holly's World."
