Prince Harry getting a lot of salutes for naked photos

Facebook group encourages people to support the prince by saluting in a nearly naked pose

Prince Harry may have taken a lot of flak for showing his royal jewels, but a lot of people also have his back - not in the same way that woman in Las Vegas had his though.

Former British Army soldier Jordan Wylie started the Facebook group "Support Prince Harry with a Naked Salute" one day after the prince was snapped in Sin City.

"This group was started after a few serving and ex military lads started posting naked salutes to each other in support of Prince Harry," reads the website Salute4Harry. It's currently the fastest growing Facebook group page.

Tens of thousands of people have joined the group with many posting photos on themselves mostly naked and saluting as the page suggests doing.

"Please cover your crown jewels, tag yourself in your photo as proof of your support to the nations favourite Royal!" reads the Facebook page. "This is for fun, friendly harmless fun."

The page was initially just open to current and former members of the military, but is now open to everyone.

In addition to soldiers the group includes babies, kids, dogs, cats and stick figures. Many people use flags, gun or military wear to cover their parts.

"I salute you Harry!" wrote Wylie when posting the first picture of himself saluting while holding a Union Jack.

Thousands of people have also reportedly complained to Britain's Press Complaints Commission about the photos being printed in the Sun newspaper.

Prince Harry has the Army rank of captain and served 77 days on the front lines in Afghanistan. He was pulled out after an Australian magazine ran a story of him being there.
