Given that, I must say this: It’s more important for Harry to show a commitment to his patroned charities and to his military career than it is to stop doing what comes naturally to him.
Yes, those pictures taken of him were embarrassing for everyone, including his family and the military. However, what he does behind closed doors is none of our damn business. Las Vegas is called “Sin City” for a reason, and Harry kicked back with his friends and a few ladies like any guy in his twenties would do.
There were no reports of fighting, nor were there any accounts of the spare being rude to anyone during his stay. He was raised by his mother to be kind, personable, friendly, and most importantly, normal.
People are wondering why Harry’s personal protection officers didn’t confiscate phones. They are on watch to save Harry’s life, not guide him towards making smart decisions.
“Royal protection officers are there to protect him for security reasons they are not there to regulate his life,” Bernard Hogan-Howe, Commissionre of the Metropolitan Police said, according to the Telegraph.
Former head of royal protection for the Metropolitan Police said, “The role of a royal protection officer is to protect, and that should cover all aspects of someone’s life. But the Prince is third in line to the throne, just two weeks ago he was representing the Queen and I don’t think he does himself any favours when he lets his guard down like this.”
According to the New York Times, the Evening Standard took a random survey of tax-paying Britons in London after the “scandal” had surfaced.
“I think it’s quite funny,” said hedge fund manager John Daniels, 46. “I’m sure most people would like to be doing exactly the same thing, especially in Vegas. This is his own private time and people shouldn’t be taking photographs of him.”
Gordon Fleming, 79, from Scotland said, “He should be able to enjoy himself. If I was still a young man, I’d be doing it, too.”
Wait, wait. There are perspectives from the ladies as well.
“I’ve got kids. They do things like that,” 59-year-old Shirley Ashard told the Associated Press.”He’s a lad, for God’s sake.”
Majesty Magazine’s editor-in-chief Ingrid Seward explained, ”Of course it’s stupid, but it doesn’t make people dislike him — quite the opposite.
“It shows that he is a guy who gets into trouble and he’s the one people love to love. It could only happen to Harry — but we love him for it.”
My thoughts exactly. And for those of you asking: This has no effect whatsoever on the line of accession to the British throne. We don’t get to choose who wears the crown.
