There are three (!!!) stories on Harry almost on top of page of DM atm.
Where the fuck were you last week?
Now now, you know the answer the DM wants you to remember the party and his ‘complicated love life’ and not the charity work.
So of course they are going to be put front and centre and the Invictus Games further down.
Need to stick to the programme.
They spoil the useless and downgrade the worthy (at least the one trying …)
Prince Harry exits the passenger seat of a Landrover Discovery at the Jaguar Landrover driving Challenge, the first event in the Invictus Games on September 9, 2014 in Gaydon, England.
The International sports event for ‘wounded warriors’, presented by Jaguar Land Rover, is just days away with limited last-minute tickets available at www.invictusgames.org
But when Harry, who had earlier told Mr Nixon that he just wanted to ‘chill out’ and watch the show, spotted the tearful Isabelle, he swung into action.
'He recognised her from earlier in the day and saw she was getting upset because she couldn’t see the band,' adds Mr Nixon.
'He approached us and smiled at me and just literally picked her up and just started to dance so she could see the stage.
PLATELL’S PEOPLE: Time this reluctant royal heir grew upBy: Amanda Platell
Last September Prince William quit his role in the military for a ‘transitional year’ to find himself. Now we learn he is to side-step his royal duties yet again by signing up as a civilian air ambulance pilot for at least two years.
We are told William ‘passionately believes this is a way of giving back to the country as he continues to support the Queen in her work’.
Some support. He has carried out just 77 royal engagements in the past 12 months, compared to the Queen’s 300 and Prince Charles’s 537.
While some may applaud him for now getting a proper job, I detect a worrying pattern emerging. Once again, William has balked at taking on his royal duty, preferring a ‘normal’ family life.
Well, as ‘normal’ as a man can be with a £25 million personal fortune, a dad who still bankrolls him and whose luxury homes are upgraded at taxpayers’ expense.
And I can’t help but think that his latest career move is a slap in the face for the Prince’s Trust, his father’s charity that has done such magnificent work helping hundreds of thousands of young people, and which could have offered William a perfect platform to ‘give something back’.
The nation has been very patient with William. We understood his reluctance as a young man to take on the royal mantle after the death of his mother. We respected his request for privacy while at university, then in the military. We indulged his little whim to undertake a course at Cambridge in agriculture.
But the reluctant Prince — who’s known to have inherited his father’s petulance — now appears to be becoming a rather selfish one, still dodging the royal draft, but keeping all the privileges that come with it.
And surely at 32, William is too old to be taking another few gap years away from the royal front line.
The brutal truth is that with Charles now 65, it is not inconceivable that William could be king in ten or 15 years. Yet, as time goes on, he worryingly seems less not more inclined to want to be a full-time royal.
The sad truth is that many are beginning to suspect William just does not have the duty gene — and that it may not be his great-grandfather George VI’s blood that pumps through his veins, but that of Edward VIII.
”We respected his request for privacy while at university, then in the military”
just a clue of the difference of treatment of W vs H, for the newcomers and those who wonder, for instance , why good W was able to happily settle down and ”naughty” H has not …yet.
