Prince Harry has at least one fan of his nude photos. 

Kate Middleton's cousin, Playboy model Katrina Darling, is speaking out in support of Harry's naked Las Vegas photos.

PHOTOS: Nude photo scandals

Darling, who is the September cover star of Playboy, told E! News Thursday, "I was shocked that the public were surprised that there is a young man having fun, partying and being comfortable with his body."

Totally nude photos of the single 27-year-old prince hit the internet Tuesday after he enjoyed a weekend in Las Vegas. The photos reportedly captured the young royal playing a game of strip billiards with friends (including an apparently nude young woman).

"I don't think anyone should be sending a message that it is wrong or sordid to be nude. It's not," Darling said. "Shaming someone for being nude is not a positive attitude to teach people, the human form is a beautiful and amazing thing to be celebrated. He didn't choose to be a role model, he's human and living a life that most can only dream of."

But the royal family may not agree with Darling. "This is a mess," a source close to Harry told Us Weekly. "This was not the type of fun he was supposed to be having. He's in trouble."

As for Harry's big brother Prince William's reaction to the photos? "He's not impressed," a royal insider tells Us.
