The very recent episode of “The Naked Prince in Las Vegas” amply demonstrated the commercial value of a celebrity's personal life. The party girl, who revealed naked snaps of Prince Harry online, has reportedly been offered a 1 m$ package for the mobile footage of the entire party. Was the secret filming planned or simply opportunity seized! I guess we will never know.
Privacy can easily been compromised with a mobile or spy camera. There have been many instances of where such footage has been used for blackmail, sold to porn sites or used by media.
Celebrities are most at risk, when they move out of closed social circles and try to socialise like normal people. It must be difficult for royalty, who are caught between the need to adhere to tradition and personal life.
