If Harry wanted to assert a right of privacy, all he had to do was keep his trousers on.

I'm sure that, as a royal, Harry has been briefed on the need for discretion.

It was his decision to get drunk. It was his decision to get naked. It was his decision to allow photographs.

And, apparently, he is also lousy at billiards.

Most of us have had our say about Harry and his capers. Whether we approve or disapprove is not of much consequence.
Neither is it any of our business, that is, if he paid for it out of his own pocket. He ran up quiet a bill for a few nights fun. £30,000, so the story goes. This is not the first time Harry has been free with money, like that ancestor of his Edward V11 he has a penchant for booze and pretty women and I'm certainly not one to complain. As I said before, if it's his money he can do what he wishes with it. But is it his own money? With what the army pays him I think that's highly unlikely. It is taxpayer's money.
I for one, and I'm sure no other member of the general public would willingly put a hand in the pocket and dish out dosh so that Harry or any other parasite connected with the Crown would spend it on urinating against a wall. No! But we have it taken from us and poured into the paws of this dross to do with what they will.
As with all countries we have a well-paid head of state but do we have to fund such a host of parasitical family members? Prince This, Princess That, Duke of Here and Dutchess of There, the list goes on, all living lavish lifestyles at our expense. The Sun can publish pictures of Harry in his pelt in the interest of press freedom and its concern for our right to see what the whole world had already seen, or so it boasts. It would be doing us a real service if it published the figures of what it truly costs us for the upkeep of the entire shower.

Totally agree with you Elmer.
I think a lot of people are missing the point. And I'll never understand the need some people have to place this load of leeches on a pedestal.
It isn't so much that this over privileged little twerp frolicked naked in Vegas, it's the fact that he thinks it's OK to do so at the taxpayer's expense.
No doubt the PR chaps at Buck house are mounting a campaign to salavage his public image even as I type. Ensuring enough public sympathy - poor fallible lad (huh) - so he can bounce back as Prince cute and lovable.

I agree, I can not understand how people can look up to these people, Royals do not live in the real world, they are an outdated institution which many other countries have abolished in one way or another over the centuries. No doubt the Royal PR department will be busy telling us all what a good egg Harry is and how he is the victim.

The tax payer should no longer fund the Royals, then lets see how they cope

It dates back to when looney King George agreed to let parliament claim the rents from his lands in return for an annual salary for him and his family. This tradition has continued from subsequent monarchs. The value of the rents far exceeds the money paid out in salaries - the net result meaning that the Royal family saves us money.

I don't condone Harry's actions - but if it were any other 27yr old, we'd all be saying 'So what?'.

I doubt that it would, do people visit Stratford Upon Avon, York, Bath, Lake District because of the Royal Family? Even in London people come to see the Tower of London, St Paul's, Westminister Abbey, Hampton Court. They do not come to see the Queen.
