As Prince Harry faces the music at home for his Las Vegas antics, it seems stripping off in a game of 'naked billiards' could be the least of his worries, after it was revealed he was not charged for his stay at the luxurious Encore Wynn resort.
The young royal allegedly racked up a bill of £30,000 as
he partied in a palatial eight-room suite with his two friends, but didn't have
to pay a penny according to a hotel source.
Billionaire Steve Wynn, who owns the resort and dined with
Prince Harry at the hotel's SW Steakhouse back in November 2011, reportedly
