Basically, due to strict laws on the media, British tabloids didn’t want to publish the actual naked photos of Prince Harry. Yesterday morning, we wondered what they would do. Now we know at least one response.
The Sun has used two stand-ins to recreate the photo: their photo editor Harry Miller and a fashion intern Sophie Henderson. Both Miller and Henderson were “happy to strip,” but just in case that wasn’t enough to calm readers, here’s their full statement made Thursday:
“For anyone worried about whether we were forced against our will to strip off, we are pleased to be able to set the record straight. Please be assured, there is no cover-up at Wapping. It was a bit of harmless fun and we were delighted to have played our part in making the readers laugh,”
Journalism! Or, I guess, “journalism.”
