The Duchess of Cambridge does
wonders for the British high street – and now it appears Prince Harry’s
frivolities are having the same effect on Las Vegas.
Since Prince Harry’s touch down in Sin
City, holidays and tour firms are reporting a huge surge of interest in Las Vegas as a travel destination.
In the 24 hours since the risque photos of Prince Harry partying in his hotel suite were revealed, Hotels.com has seen a massive spike in searches for Las Vegas – with a 123 per cent increase in the number of searches carried out compared to the equivalent day in 2011.
Virgin Holidays has also seen a spike in interest across all channels,
as Las Vegas enquiries rocketed by a third compared to the same week
Prince Harry's Vegas frolics have led to a 30% rise in holiday enquiries from holidaymakers hoping to have as much fun
Dubbed the 'Prince Harry effect', the
surge of interest has made the Las Vegas page the most visited on its
website this week, as
holiday makers look to banish the post-Olympic blues and follow in the
party loving Prince’s footsteps.
It was billed by those who took part as the ‘road trip to end all road trips’ and it seems everybody wants to hop on the partying bandwagon.

Taking in a private island, one of the finest hotel suites in the world and several hundred surgically-enhanced young blondes, Harry's trip did not disappoint.
And Virgin are so grateful for the Prince's influence that to say a special thanks, the company, which is known for its Rockstar Service, hoped to deliver a special care package to ensure that he parties (and recovers) in true Rockstar fashion.
The Virgin Holidays Concierge team
in resort were hoping to personally deliver the travel kit to The Wynn
hotel where the Prince was staying.
The care package includes: an energy drink, sunglasses and comedy disguise, a complimentary brunch, and swimming trunks (because apparently he lost his).
