Wapping insiders claimed today that the front page picture of Prince Harry almost 'koo' starkers was a birthday present from Rupert Murdoch to his heroic wife, Wendi Deng.
Deng shot to worldwide fame in 2011 when attacking Johnnie Marbles Kung-Fu style, after the vigilante protester had thrown a custard pie at the 80 year old Murdoch as the News International boss gave evidence to the Parliament Select Committee about the News Of The World phone-hacking scandal.
Dirty Digger Rupe bought Wendi some diamonds and had flowers one day 'the most humbling day of his life' but he promised to give her 'anything' she wanted as an extra gift.
Deng wanted some naked pics of the worlds hottest ginger. RM duly ordered the Suns editor to oblige, despite the warning from Buckingham Palace that printing the pics would invade the Princes Privacy.
It is not clear if Deng is the 'dish' in the pic with Harry, as she has her behind facing the camera. It is thought that Murdoch was happy to print the pictures as a parting shot before the Leveson committee announce plans to reform the laws on UK newspaper standards later this year.
Wendi Deng is 42.
