"Remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Except herpes. That shit'll come back with you."

Ah, yes, that old chestnut. 'What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas'.


Except... when it doesn't (because you're too damn famous for people to keep quiet about you!)


Who, me??

Oh, boy. That fun-loving party animal of the Royal family, Prince Harry, has been caught with his pants down and then some. Apparently Hazza picked up a group of nubile young women last weekend while in Vegas and invited them up to his private VIP suite for a game of strip billiards (or as we would say here in Australia, Strip Pool). Photos have since been leaked showing Hazza flashing the royal birthday suit, including a particularly revealing full frontal view of him cupping the crown jewels with both hands while an equally naked young woman cuddles his princely body from behind. As you would. Ahem.



*insert funny throwaway one-liner here.* (Mental note:  Come back later if I think of one.)



Let's get this party started!

The Palace has said nothing other than confirming that the photos ARE in fact, genuine. *chuckles* Oh to be a fly on the wall of the PR department at Buckingham Palace. Can you imagine the conversations? And the reaction of the Queen? *snorts* One might imagine she'd be a little perturbed by such behaviour. Bet you anything though that Prince Philip is secretly proud. He'll be the one to joke about it at the Christmas family gathering.



Because he's a bit of a rebel, that Harry. And someone who obviously enjoys life. Possibly because he's the spare, not the heir - not as much pressure about duty and all that falling on his regal shoulders. And he's also got a rather endearing cheekiness about him too. In short, he looks like he'd be brilliant to hang out with. And I think that's why so many people (me included) can't help but like him. He's that bloke who can spin a yarn and keep everyone hanging on to the very last word, that guy with a well-tuned sense of humour who's not afraid to use it, and the man you could depend on to banish the word 'boring' from your vocabulary.


Last drinks?

So what do I think about this latest adventure? I'm okay with it. Harry's a single man, he's not breaking any law and everything looks pretty consensual in those pictures, so good luck to him. He's probably a little red-faced about letting photos of this particular night get out  - that wasn't so smart, I'm sure his security team won't be that happy - but he's got testosterone in buckets and should be allowed to have an actual life, other than the royal one. To his credit, he does his bit for charities and the monarchy plus he's still a serving member of the British Defence Forces, so I reckon he deserves to let his hair down on holidays. Don't we all?




What do you think? Has Harry gone too far and embarrassed the royal family or is he just doing what any hot-blooded male would do if he got the chance?

  1. It must be difficult to grow up in the Royal family, with all your mistakes displayed in public. I'm not sure it was the brightest thing to do, but agree if everyone was happy to be there and participating then it's not a crime.

    1. I wouldn't want to be a member of the Royal family or ANY celebrity for that matter for that very reason! I value my anonymous life as Mrs Average living in Suburbia thank you very much. Harry will no doubt be summoned to the Palace for a 'chat' with his Grandmother but I don't think this incident will do much damage to the monarchy as such. If anything, it may actually increase his popularity!

  3. I agree: Harry has buckets full of testosterone -- and a cute butt. Can't imagine Grandma being pleased to see his cheekiness though. (Granddad, on the other hand, WILL probably be laughing tongue-in-cheek while his wife gives their grandson a piece of her mind.) But I imagine the truly snide comments will come from Diana's rottweiler.

    1. Harry will probably get a bit of stick from his brother and cousins I reckon, but he doesn't seem to be the type of guy who'd sweat too much about it. And really, it's not a big deal when you get right down to it.
