British Royalty physically abused by paparazzi

The younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, Prince Harry was hit in the face by a camera during an overnight scuffle outside a nightclub that left a photographer with a cut lip.

The 20-year-old was leaving Pangaea in London's West End early Thursday when photographers attempted to take pictures of him.

A spokesman for Clarence House, the office of Harry's father Prince Charles, said the third in line to the throne was defending himself when the incident happened at around 3 a.m. "Prince Harry was hit in the face by a camera as photographers crowded around him as he was getting into a car," the spokesman said, reports CNN.
