Prince Harry was photographed (naked) in a Las Vegas hotel room playing strip billiards. If you live in Britain you would’ve heard this story several times over and are frankly sick of it but I wanted to know what the big fuss was all about.
Now, who honestly thought the 27 year old was a virgin? Why can’t he join in the Las Vegas spirit and relax? Why are you so angry at the poor bloke?
Not only is everyone mad at the Prince for allowing himself to be exposed in such a manner but I’ve heard very few reports addressing the security.
Personally, I believe the poor guy should be allowed his privacy. And as for embarrassing the royal family I think in some areas of the UK and probably around the world he’s increased his ‘street cred’ and gained more respect. This behaviour surely shows he’s no different to anybody else. Using this logic, his privacy should be the same as everybody else’s, if semi-naked pictures were printed of a regular citizen they could sue and everyone would be in an outrage over the issue.
Saying this, the Sun found that after they printed the pictures with the excuse ‘everyone’s seen them anyway’ 3600 complaints were filed to the Press Complaints Commission from the public who thought the Prince had a right to a private life.
I read today that a few soldiers in the Army and their wives/girlfriends have photographed themselves naked or semi-naked in support for Prince Harry and posted pictures to a facebook group site. The group ‘Support Prince Harry With A Naked Salute’ has over 13,000 members and rising – a great idea though I don’t think I’ve got the confidence J
Prince Harry’s first public appearance after the scandal is tonight at the Paralympic opening ceremony and I don’t think he’s got anything to be ashamed of and can go out there with his head held high knowing he’s not the one in the wrong. Do you agree?
