Hmmm... i can't help but feel a tiny bit sorry for him...
oh, I love Harry. He's such a boofhead.
okay wut do they do again?
I thought "royalty" only took place in the like 1800's england. seems backwards
haha. Harry's gone kookoo. YAY!
So do I.
I sort of don't blame him... he seems like a nice boy, but he just attracts a lot of really bad media attention.
I feel bad for the kid. How would any of us feel if we were chased around by goons with cameras all the time. The dude can't even fart without it heading up a tabloid next day: "Royal Progeny Flatulent--too much chips-and beer?"
Granted, shoving the cameraman, no matter how satisfying it must have been, was a foolish move, because now the photographer could take legal steps against the prince, but I can see what inspired him to do it, nonetheless.
I mean how do you cope?
Understandably, he wishes to do things normal young men his age do, such as go out dancing with his friends. His mother did her best to ensure that he and his brother could have as normal of childhood as possible. She took them to shop for underpants and school supplies at Marks & Sparks and was supportive of the notion that the boys go away to school, rather than be tutored at home. With his father's insistance (backed by legal clout) that the paparazzi back off the boys while they were growing up, Harry has grown up with expectations of living a relatively unfettered, un-hassled life, and now that those expectation are being thwarted, it is not hard to understand that his reactions would be dismay, anger, and rebellion.
Being pestered day in and out by assholes with telephoto lenses is no way to live.
Hell, I should go crosspost this in the MK & A threads.
^ well said, As You Like It!!!!
well said... I do wonder if harry might have been better off going to uni. william has escaped so much of the crap just because he's been at st a's where everyone leaves him alone...
Well said. VERY well said. :: applause ::
Reminds me of what Hugh Grant said on Oprah today about paparrazi and how they change the way you go about your life.
I dont feel sorry for them. Paparazzi are just doing their job(when it goes to tooooooo far thats not right). They get paid for taking pics of celebrities and the royality get paid for doing absoultely nothing.
i dont blame him
press photographers can be so rude, they will do anything to get the photos they want
Well, he was taking a gap year, right? I suppose he's working his ya-yas out now. I think more kids ought to take a couple of years off of school after high-school and work (either volunteer or just a crap paid job) and get their partying out of their systems so that they can concentrate on their schoolwork at university. There's a level of seriousness and maturity really needed to get a good university education, and a LOT of 18-year-olds are not ready to commit to that. That's why there are so many stories of freshman students ketting kicked out for never doing their work and being drunk all the time. They needed to not go to school and waste their money, but spend some time working a crap job and drinking beer on the weekends, where little would be at stake.
If Harry is, as he is reported to be, kind of impulsive and a cut-up, it might be better for him to raise hell for a year or two to get it out of his blood, then buckle down at university after he gets his partying over with.
boofhead, I love it...
but no comment, on my end.
