Since when has the British press shied away from happily splashing photos of a royal scandal all over their pages?

In the wake of the News of the World phone-hacking scandal and after a warning from royal officials to not run photos of nude Prince Harry in Las Vegas, not one British paper has used the cheeky photos that were leaked to TMZ.

Several outlets went with the story, but none has dared show the scandalous photos of the spare heir caught mid-strip billiards.

"British websites, newspapers and television stations were prevented from reproducing [the images] after Prince Charles instructed lawyers to threaten legal action for infringing Prince Harry's 'privacy,' " the Daily Mail wrote.

But the ban has led to creativity in some newsrooms.

The Sun used one if its own staffers to re-create one of the nude photos (complete with nude woman behind him -- an intern).

But the lack of local coverage isn't likely to help Harry's cause.

The prince is reportedly in trouble with his dad and, of course, his grandmother.

"She will be unhappy about it," Arthur Edwards, royal photographer for the Sun, told ABC News. "She probably choked on her cornflakes when she heard about it."

And according to TMZ, his handlers are in hot water as well.

"Harry's team acted like a bunch of amateurs," a source said.

Vivienne set to appear in mom's film

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie aren't the only movie stars in their house.

Walt Disney Studios confirmed Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, 4, will play the child version of Princess Aurora in "Maleficent," the live-action, updated version of "Sleeping Beauty," which also stars the tot's mom.

According to People, Elle Fanning, who plays the grown version of Aurora, will play the majority of the role. Vivienne's part will be very minor.

Viv isn't the first Jolie-Pitt child to star in a film with one of their parents. Shiloh Jolie-Pitt had a small cameo in Brad's film, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," in 2008, playing -- who else, but Brad's character's daughter.
