Thousands of Facebook users salute Prince Harry

Not long after TMZ posted photos of a nude Harry in an exclusive Las Vegas hotel suite, a Facebook page appeared called “Support Prince Harry with a naked salute!” in collaboration with

“If you have served, or are serving, in the military,” the page says in an invitation to its 16,000 members, “I want to see a naked salute in support of Prince Harry uploaded on this group.”

Thousands of photos and counting have appeared.

The site was recently opened to everyone, though its creators have a simple request: “Cover your crown jewels (and) tag yourself in your photo as proof of your support to the nations favourite royal!”

Prince Harry, who has kept out of the press since returning to London after the scandal broke Aug. 21, is expected to “attend select events” at the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, a representative of the royals told TMZ.

Events begin tomorrow.
