Prince Harry is one of the better-liked Royals.Charismatic, like his (supposed real redheaded) father.Fun.He not only bared his ass, he put it on the line for Britain as a forward fire controller in Afghanistan.
What's the point of being a prince if you can't party naked when you want?
Harry won't appreciate the "salute to Harry" pics when he gets back to his day job. Having serving soldiers mock an officer is not career enhancing. Apparently, their top General turned to the Army Chief and told him to deal with it. Yeah, Harry is a Prince, but he's also an Army Captain, and Army Captains aren't supposed to show their equipment to the locals. Conduct unbecoming a Queen's Officer. He'll meet with his Regimental Commander for (I love the phrase), an 'Interview without Coffee'. Having had several such interviews, they aren't pleasant. There won't be any yelling, but there will be lots of verbal disappointment expressed at his gross lack of judgement and his having embarassed the Regiment, the Service and the Queen. While standing there, It will be pointed out that such conduct demonstrates he does not have sufficent judgement and control for positions of increased responsibility. He'll likely be encouraged to make a donation of pay and told to go and sin no more. The other meeting that I expect will be unpleasant is the one ith Prince Phillip, who will likely express his disappointment and that of the Queen.
People just love to get naked and take a picture of it. I really don't get it.
Jeez. They named him "Prince Harry!" What did they expect? Didn't they read King Henry IV?
Before there was Prince Harry, there was the Royal Dragoon Guards!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIRerGVrEeg
As the bard said "We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints,Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints; While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, fall be'ind", But it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind, There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind, O it's "Please to walk in front, sir", when there's trouble in the wind."Inquiring people want to know if the pictures of Harry turned Titus into a "huge" fan. On second thought, no, we don't
psThe quote is from Tommy by Rudyard Kipling, who surprised me by being a prolific poet.
Yeah, but when Kipling wrote "Tommy," I don't think he was referring to members of the Royal Family.
I think Soldier of the Queen is better. the last 2 stanzas have great relevance:If your officer's dead and the sergeants look white,Remember it's ruin to run from a fight:So take open order, lie down, and sit tight, And wait for supports like a soldier. Wait, wait, wait like a soldier . . . When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,And the women come out to cut up what remains,Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains An' go to your Gawd like a soldier. Go, go, go like a soldier, Go, go, go like a soldier, Go, go, go like a soldier, So-oldier of the Queen!
Like his uncle, Andrew, Harry put it on the line in combat, but feels it necessary to make a reputation by making an ass of himself.He might take a look at the low esteem in which his uncle is held while he's still young
My point that no matter how gussied up you make royalty, people are people. They do good, they do bad, they do stupid. Hopefully the stupid isn't too bad. I would rate this a "minor" bad.I mean look at Prince Jug Ears. He was married to Diana, who was, lets face it, waaaay out of his league. And he dumps her to knock off a little with Cammie Bowlegs. And that woman is bulldog ugly.(worse than coyote ugly)
Supposedly, Di was dumber than a box of rocks, a Valley Girl whose only talent was shopping.Maybe Camilla tells a mean elephant joke.And maybe she's Hell in the sack.BTW, you can always turn off the lights.
@DSargeIt's kinda funny how the muj never seem to forget any little slight or battle in history, and the West never seems to remember. We as a country have been fighting the muj since out inception. I'm not even going to get into the crusades.
e: "He might take a look at the low esteem in which his uncle is held while he's still young."Uncle? He can look closer than that: his old dad.His father screwed around, then blamed his "uneducated" crazy wife for being silly. As if his courtesan mistress was any better educated. As if it makes any difference to the idiot himself.I don't think Harry has done anything a royal hasn't done before. His mother sunbathed naked on her boyfriend's yacht.Harry's fault is looking a bit flabby. He should do some P90X first before he bares his butts in public again.
Commoners gonna hate.

@edutcherSo is Jessica Simpson, I still ain't dumpin' her for Roseanne. (I can always put a sock in her mouth...or somethin')PsJessica with post baby boob's is smokin'!
Don't know how the pic snappers got past the bodyguards. You'd think they'd be watching out for this kind of activity and at the least smashing phones.
"Having serving soldiers mock an officer is not career enhancing."I didn't think it was mocking so much as genuinely supportive.Yes, and funny.No doubt someone will fail to have a sense of humor, someone always does.
