Default A Prince of a Guy...

So, it's been over a week, since Harry flashed the world in Vegas. He is home hanging his head,& laying low, closed his Face book page, as did William. "They" say there are more pictures & videos to come, so what's your take on his Vegas escapade?

Many are giving the Prince a pass, as this is just another Harry gone wild episode....do you?

Harry's actions were probably the same as most 27 year olds which I don't have a problem with.
However I do have a problem with the people who took the photo's etc.
They have no idea about respecting Harry's privacy and his position even though there were a lot worse cases throughout the royal families history.
No camera's back in that past.

I too have a problem with whomever took and posted the pictures. I also have a problem with his so called "security" who had to be there. The British tax payers pay these guys an awful lot of money to "look out for them". It shouldn't be too hard to find whoever took the pictures as it was a stagette and the girls have already come forward to brag about being with the Prince. ( by the way they should be made aware that he is not "the Prince of England!!!!" tsk tsk. )

I hope they throw the book at these stupid girls.

I thought we fought a war back in 1776 so we no longer had to pay attention to these guys.

The Vegas tourist association will now have to change their motto to:

and the British take is generally 'who gives a damn'.

The biggest scandal here was that one of the lowbrow newspapaers, and I use the word 'news' in the loosest of terms, decided to post the pictures in the name of freedom of the press. They are apparently all over the web, so if anyone was interested, they had free access to them.

As has been mentioned, let's just be glad it was a camera & not a gun. Had He told his security to let these guys in, or had they simply failed to bother to carry out their duties?

I was shocked he could cover his jewels with one hand.

Seriously, we have so much to worry about and so does Europe.

Sure would have loved to be in the room when Granny got hold of him.

Don't you think that it's a bit much to classify all of us as being brash and mishaved?

I have met many people from the UK and I don't put them all in the same category.

Default Who Cares??

Seriously who cares??

PH walks on water as far as the UK public are concerned.

I haven't looked at the pics and have no interest in looking at the pics - funny none of my friends or family have looked either.

August is the 'silly season' as far as the UK media is concerned and surprise, surprise it was a Murdoch rag which published them.

PH is only 3rd in line to the throne and once the Cambridges have children - further down the tree he goes.

Someone on another forum said he brought disgrace to the Royal Family which prompted the retort of Charles and Camilla ?? At least he is not married or got involved with a married lady.

Anyway as we say, we wrap chips in the newspaper now.

Annie

Perhaps he wants a normal life .The idea of him becoming King of England in 60 years (after his father and brother) may not appeal to him .
If he were John Doe nobody would pay attention to what he does.

King of England???

If William has children, it is unlikely he will ever become king - but I think you are correct - he doesn't want the job.

Annie,

Do you see a time when the UK doesn't need or want a King, and Queen?

Hi Luanne

How are you?

To be honest - not in my lifetime.

I don't think it is a question of need, what is the alternative?? President Tony Blair or President David Cameron - omg no - I guess that would be the cry.

The Royal Family were not very popular just after the death of Diana - they were very badly advised until Tony Blair stepped in.
Everyone views William and Harry as Diana's boys - say no more.

Credit where credit is due - the Queen since the funeral of Diana has not put a foot wrong and Camilla after her marriage to Charles - has kept a low, quiet profile. I am actually warming to her.

So who knows - a lot will depend upon the children of William and Kate.

While I am here, may I say I don't think Scotland will separate from the UK - if we did - we would still maintain the Royal Family.

My own opinion - we make more money out of the Royal Family than they cost - certainly people don't bow and scrape as much as they used too.

Annie

Hi Annie, I am doing well, and I hope you are the same.

It is nice to get the opinion of someone envolved with the situation.

Take care of yourself.

I admit, I DID go look at the pics, but thankfully...They had his "jewels" covered with a star symbol..lol I say he is just young, a prince and having the best possible time a prince can have at his age...No biggie to me. However, I think Grandma had a cow and probably pulled him up by the ears when she saw him afterward

You know, its funny....

Nobody talks about what likely happened after he got naked with several young females, and the curious 10-legged animal they must have turned into. Or the nasally-ingested party favors that were consumed in abundance.
Thats all okay.

But. Naked pictures!!! well... OMG... we need to draw a line now.

I say that if you are the Prince you had better either NOT do these things or be very sure you know who you are partying with.

The problem with huge fame is that people will want to entice you with "favors" and you have to be very careful about what those favors from strangers will lead to...

Royalty is taken very seriously in Britain, he needs to be more careful.

The handling of the issue by Murdoch's newspaper was the issue - not Harry.

Harry who??

I saw them on TMZ which I assume anyone in the UK with a computer could have seen them.

When you are a young handsome nad rich you are not going to live the life of a Monk.

The fact that he is a Royal means that he has income for life and he does not have to be concerned of being fired from his job.

Most people who critisize him are just jealous of not being in the same league as he is.

I have been naked in Vegas myself, but no one wanted my picture.

TMZ??

Honestly Luanne - I know of no-one who has looked for them - I certainly haven't.

The fuss reminds me of last year's Royal Wedding - USA is fascinated more by the subject than we are.

I have said before - PH is Diana's son and can do no wrong. The Murdoch empire publishing the photographs made a HUGE mistake IMO - he only published them to make a political point.

Our PM left his daughter in the pub once - who cares?? - we get on with our own lives.

I don't think either William or Harry are on the civil list - their mother's fortune (divorce settlement) provides the income.

I think his Army bosses will have a few words.

His father was no saint.

Is he any different from a Kennedy misbehaving??

When we were in Hawaii last year Marj was pouting that she was going to miss the Royal Wedding because it was on our checkout day. I told her due to the time difference it would be on midnight the day before live on cable. She was a happy camper.

I have heard the name

Luanne - I suppose whether you look or not depends on how caught up with celebrity you are or dare I say bored??

TMZ still draws a blank with me - I could google but I might just resist

It was not a matter of "do you want to look" I opened the web site, and there was Harry's Butt.
