OK, so some people will say my defence of Prince Harry is wrong; he is a Royal, can’t have a normal life, has to behave appropriately, yaddah, yaddah, yaddah.
However, I think the scandal surrounding Harry’s “Vegas romp” has been blown completely out of proportion. Some people have expressed disappointment at Harry’s behaviour, saying that him being chosen to represent the Queen at the closing ceremony of London 2012 showed a more mature, trustworthy Harry. But, let’s face it, how many of us have done something as a duty call? How many of us can say that we are the same around our grandparents as when we are on holiday?
It’s said that Harry’s flying back to the UK for a dressing down from his father and granny. I can imagine a lot of people being in trouble if their parents found out what they got up to on holiday! Which is why we should all be sympathetic to Harry’s plight.
I think all Harry wants is to be a ‘normal guy’. His stint on the front line in Afghanistan was proof that he didn’t want any special treatment. Why should he (and other members of his family) be treated differently just because of who their grandma happens to be?
Fair enough, I can understand why the palace doesn’t want nude pictures of Harry being printed but let’s be honest – would you want your holiday pictures publishing for the nation to ogle?
I don’t see what all the fuss is about – he’s a single guy on his holidays! And it was all meant to stay in Vegas 😉
