The latest snaps of Prince Harry in his hotel suite in Las Vegas have been published on the TMZ website, and show that he sports a bright red star tattoo on his backside.
The significance of the tattoo is not known for sure, but that has not stopped people speculating on the meaning. Some point out that it is effectively a pentagram - a symbol associated with witchcraft. Others, that it is a sign of communism or possibly spirituality in tarot. The most likely explanation however is that the Prince is a big fan of Rage Against The Machine, and the band and their fans use the red star symbol regularly.
There is speculation too as to whether the tattoo is a proper permanent one, or if it is one of the temporary kind that gradually fades and usually disappears after a few weeks. Its bright red colour indicates that if it is temporary, it must have been applied in the last few days.
In search of answers about the whole tattoo issue, we contacted St James's Palace. A spokesperson responded to our enquiries, saying "You idiots. That red star has been added to the photos by TMZ to preserve the Prince's modesty."
Well, that may be true, but even without the red star we think we can foresee another royal Anus Horribilis.
