Just when you thought the latest Prince Henry of Wales scandal was about to wane, a new image emerged yesterday of Harry’s trip to Vegas, again showing the boisterous Royal in a state of undress and up to no good. This time however, there was no full-frontals or unfortunate bending over shots, as Harry instead was snapped apparently good-naturedly abusing a police officer, by seemingly jumping out from behind a wall to scare the cop.
Well, either that or he was caught bragging about the size of something he’s clearly happy with…
Harry has already attracted a world of criticism after naked pictures taken on the “lads’ weekend” emerged online recently, and public opinion seems to have fluctuated wildly about the usually popular royal. This image is a lot less “adult” than the others, but it’s still hardly the kind of behaviour you might expect from a Royal, and it will no doubt attract similar attention, if not quite the same venom.
This begs the question – what the hell were the security team charged with protecting both Harry and his already dented public image actually doing while someone willing to sell these images to all and sundry were merrily snapping away. I mean, obviously, this one’s not quite so invasive as the others published a couple of days ago to mass hysteria and more than a few raised eye-brows, but surely at least one of his security team should have been briefed on minimising the opportunity for comedic/damaging photos. It’s Prince Harry for God’s sake!
Anyway, here’s to Harry, my personal favourite role, who clearly likes doing exactly what he wants, despite public outcry considering how much money its costing them to watch him party. What they miss of course is the fact that the Royals are supposed to be a spectacle, and now that the world has cruelly robbed us of the chance to see another It’s A Royal Knock-Out, and Prince Phillip has calmed down an awful lot with ripe old age it’s good to see Prince Harry keeping the lighter side of things up.
Look out for more amusing shots of Harry in future – we hope. Oh, come on, it’s not like he’s going to be the King.
