Kate Middleton to Support Prince Harry After Scandal [PHOTOS]
After the shocking set of Harry's nude photos leaked the Internet, his sister-in-law, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, has offered her full support despite the humiliation and shame it has caused the royal family.
Not long ago, photos of the dashing Prince Harry sans his clothes went viral after the royal spent some nights partying in Las Vegas. The photos were allegedly taken by a guest in the same suite where the Prince took part in a game of strip pool.
In the blurry photos first released by TMZ, the prince is seen lollygagging with a naked lady in his arms. The woman is believed to be part of a group that the Prince invited up to his suite.
Now that the scandal is heating up and discussed in gossip sites all over the world, Harry is shaken and has brought distress to the royal clan. Unlike others who have condemned the royal, the Duchess of Cambridge seems to be in full support of his brother-in-law.
"She's promised to support him as much as possible and offered to help him come up with a recovery plan to get his public image back on track." a source told ContactMusic.com, as posted by the Hindustan Times.
Catherine and Harry has always been close to each other, even before Kate married William in April last year. Unlike her other members of the royal family who seemed to be fired up with the whole fiasco, the sympathetic Duchess proved how much she loves Harry by telling William to take it easy on the naked royal.
"William called Harry straight away and gave him a bit of a telling off. But Kate pointed out he had already been through the ringer and deserved their sympathy," the source added in the same post.
