After naked pictures of him at a party in Las Vegas emerged online last week, British royal Prince Harry has deleted his personal Facebook account.

Prince Harry made headlines worldwide after he was photographed in the nude during a game of strip billiards at the MGM Grand hotel in Sin City.

According to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper, the third-in-line to the throne used the pseudonym Spike Wells on the social networking site; however, he has apparently canceled his account under advice from his private secretary Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton.

Buckingham Palace officials are reportedly worried that  photos of Harry taken while at business tycoon Richard Branson's private Necker Island property prior to the Las Vegas trip could surface online after they were published by a friend on Facebook.

The prince's close friends Tom Inskip and Arthur Landon also closed their accounts after posting pictures of themselves with Harry.
