Poor Harry, he can't get away from the fact that Royals can't do regular stuff... like visiting a lap dancing club. According to various UK tabloids this morning, he visited the Spearmint Rhino club and had his face between a Russian's boobs. Apparently he went straight for her when he saw the size of them!

If he's going to carry on like this, the least he could do is remove himself from the line of succession. The thought of him as HOS would be like the "alternate" 1985 in Back to the Future II, where biff is in charge.

Harry is also paid for by the British public. He has a responsibility to behave a certain way so long as his life is subsidised by the tax payer.

One of the lads? You mean Prince Harry or Prince William? No. It would be one of us as President.

"One of the lads" is a British term meaning just a regular person.

No kidding. Who cares what the Royal family wants, if he has no interest in the royal family, he can just up and leave and do whatever he pleases. If I don't like a movie, I get up and leave, if Harry dosen't like the royal family, he can leave, and even if he dosen't leave, he can still lead whatever life he wants.

"One of the lads" - perhaps, although of course one of the lasses would be welcome as well.

I agree with that statement. Personally I'm still very upset about Harry attending a costume party in a Nazi uniform and then allowing that photos of him in that outfit appear in the tabloids. I hope that Charles gave him after that a good history lesson. Didn't Charles take Harry to Auschwitz to show him the horrors of the Nazis because of this?

That being said, I thought that by going to Sandhurst, he would straighten up, but I guess I was wrong. At least William tries to be normal and at the same time, show that he can behave properly as the second in line for the throne, after Charles. Though I'm sure he did make mistakes, but none as bad as the ones Harry is doing right now.

Going to Sandhurst is no guarentee that he will "straighten up" as you so succinctly put it. Army officers, especially young ones, are renowned for their antics.

And, while he may be financed by the British Taxpayer, he has a right to be young and make mistakes like the rest of us. I would rather have someone like that on the throne than some po-faced, supposedly perfect prick who has no idea how the real world operates. I mean, look at Tony Blair. Big grin  stirthepot

So what? 21 year old in the army goes to a Spearmint Rhino's a week before he completes his training. Big bloody deal. Why is this even news?

Just because he's a royal makes not the slightest jot of difference. He's (gasp, shock, horror) a human being.

Anyway, I always think of what the Sydney Morning Herald commented after the Rugby World Cup final, which was (if memory serves): "Prince Harry; likes, a smoke, likes a drink, likes rugby. Make him King" Big grin

While I am in no way a fan of the Royal Family, your argument is flawed. The royal family (as pointless as they are), are more or less the UK's largest tourist attraction, and bring far more money into the UK than they take out. Theamount of people that visit the UK each year to see Bucky Palace, changing of the guards etc is ridiculous.

Anytime a group of men are together, they will often act in the worst ways, especially as to sexual beheavors. Prince Harry is no better or worse than any other guy and like almost all guys, he want's to show he is a 'guy'. He is well over 18 years of age. Peer pressure to be accepted by others around you can often lead to questionable beheavor. This can be very true in all-male or nearly all-male situations, like in the military. Problem is that as a member of the UK royalty, he is also subject to far more attention than 99.99% of the citizens of the UK. He needs to be around people, including security agents, who will advise him and keep him away from bad influences or worse yet people who may harm him. Yet too, he has to grow up like all of us did, making mistakes along the way. Don't forget that he lead a very sheltered and isolated life as a minor as part of the royal family due to security and just the lifestyle of being a royal, so he may engage in dumb beheavor as he just may not know any better.

Well it sure wasn't his fault that he was born into the Royal Family. I do understand your point, I'm sure that they don't like this behavior, but what can you ask him to do, put up some money for rent? If they don't approve of his behavior, then they probably can do something about it, he's never going to be King, let the boy do what he likes, just because your born rich and famous dosen't mean you can't make mistakes like the rest of us.

Except I'd imagine that he visited Spearmint Rhino on Army wages... so we technically paid for them all to go.

So what? He's 21, it's hardly like he broke the law in going there! I don't have a problem with him doing it, and I, as a taxpayer, funded this trip one way or another. What sort of night would he have had if his mates had all gone and he had stayed in simply to avoid the press?

It doesn't require such a person. Look at Richard Branson's daughter, look at the young Swedish Royals, look at the Danish royals, even to some extent Prince William. You don't have to be "perfect" to not make a public fool of yourself. He's paid for by the public, and so long as he is - he must expect that people will take keen interest in his affairs. He is a royal, a senior member of the royal family, high up on the line of succession. If he wants to forfeit the obligations associated with this, that's fine - he can forfeit his allowance of public funds - get a job, and buy a house like the rest of us.

One would hope that after his phenomenally expensive education - he would be able to better judge acceptable standards of behaviour as a member of the royal family.

Quoting Banco (Reply 13):
Why is this even news?

Because he's fourth in line to a throne that would make him the head of state of 16 sovereign countries. If a senior Minister did this, don't expect me to believe the public would put it up to a case of "boys will be boys".

Because we can't vote for these people, the best we can do in terms of having our will heard is to express disapproval at behaviour we would not accept from a democratically elected, and publicly funded leader.

Quoting Banco (Reply 13):

Exactly - and it absolutely wouldn't be a problem if he'd used his own money earned by him to go out partying at a strip club. But it was public funds. He has obligations and responsibilities as a royal - you surely can see this.

Pitt the Younger (almost) excepted, senior ministers aren't 21 years old. And if it was a senior minister, I don't recall anyone ever criticisng them on the grounds that we pay their wages. That side of the debate is never raised.

Firstly, you as an Australian don't pay towards Prince Harry, so you don't have a complaint there. It is his own money. Money he's earned as a soldier. How far do you want to take this? The Royal Family can't have a packet of crisps because it isn't good use of funds? If he'd gone out and bought himself the QMII, then fine, otherwise, fifty quid on a night out is irrelevant.

Secondly, Prince Harry isn't (unless I'm mistaken) on the Civil List, so we don't pay for him either, except in terms of his security and so forth. The only way it can be termed as us paying for him is if you put the same strict terms and conditions on every single Civil Servant nationwide. How dare the dustmen go down the pub and get pissed! That's our money they're spending!  Wink
