London’s Manbar Mural of a Shirtless Prince Harry

A half-naked Prince Harry is taking centre stage at a top gay bar. The party boy royal has been immortalized in a huge mural painted at a London club.

Harry, currently on duty in Afghanistan, became a hit with gays after being named a “gay icon” by QX magazine. Club director Chris Amos said: “It probably began when we started seeing him in his army uniform.

“He’s a real man. He’s cheeky and sexy but he’s also decent.

“That’s what makes him a role model for us, as well as being a gay icon.”

Chris said revelers are queuing up to have their pictures taken with the undies-only image, which was painted by homoerotic artist Mikes Bliss at the Manbar nightclub in Charing Cross. Harry’s popularity among gay men rocketed after photos of him playing topless rugby were taken in Afghanistan. It was compared to 1980s blockbuster Top Gun’s famous volleyball scene.

His reputation also soared when naked snaps of him romping with a blonde in Las Vegas went viral on the web. Many were worried the snaps would dent the royal family’s reputation in the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee year. But the sensation actually made the 28-year-old prince more popular as it showed he is game for a laugh.

The Vegas romp was put in perspective just weeks later when Apache pilot Harry was sent back to the war zone.
