Even notorious tabloid publications have complied with a warning to not publish the nude photos of Prince Harry which emerged yesterday.
The royal family have urged the British media to "respect the privacy of the royals," and in the wake of the Leveson Inquiry, all have complied.
The 27-year-old, formerly dubbed the "Playboy Prince" for his wild partying, was snapped naked inside his hotel room during a trip to Las Vegas.
The images were leaked to Hollywood gossip site TMZ.com and circulated around the world in minutes.
The palace has stated that since the images were taken in a high rollers suite at the Wynn and Encore hotel complex costing up to it would be a breach of the prince's privacy to publish them.
British media have spoken out against the gagging order, but many sites have provided links to places viewers can see the photos.
The Daily Mail has listed 15 alternative websites, and The Telegraph has titled their headlining piece "Palace tries to ban naked photos of Prince Harry".Commentators have called the blackout hypocritical.
