Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
« on: September 01, 2007, 10:13:23 AM »
I think Prince Henry/Prince Harry did a wonderful job at his late Mother's memorial service. I found it curious that he delivered the address and not his older brother Prince William.

I agree, Prince Harry did brilliantly.   It is reported that he searched everywhere for something which he felt would sum up his feelings, but failed to find anything he thought suitable.   He therefore decided to write something himself.   

He did the right thing - what made his short eulogy all the more powerful is that it so obviously came from his heart.

Yes I thought Prince Harry did a fantastic job with the speech it was very beautifully said. It did not sound boring at all it sound realy sweet and very caring message for their mother. It shows how much Harry realy loves his mother and misses her. I am certain that the message came from his heart. Becuase he did not use flash cards or memorize anything he just spoke out there without using nothing.

I thought he was more articulate during their brief speech at the concert earlier in the summer - perhaps he's just more comfortable with public speaking? Without making any actual judgments about sentiment, I think his speaking comes across as more genuine (less stilted?) and it was definitely an occasion where one wouldn't want to be criticized for performance or delivery.

Harry gets an ear-bashing: What happened when he forgot to pick Chelsy up from the airport

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/showbiz/showbiznews.html?in_article_id=480263&in_page_id=1773

As Chelsey "walked out of the arrivals gate at Terminal 1 there was no sign of her boyfriend. As photographers swarmed around her, she couldn't hide her thunderous expression and sought refuge in a nearby Costa Coffee bar where she punched Harry's number into her mobile phone. The apologetic prince insisted that he hadn't overslept but had been waiting at the wrong terminal and sent half a dozen uniformed police officers to protect her. Five minutes later she walked out of a side entrance - and into the arms of her boyfriend, who looked as if he had just got out of bed....Harry...put his arm protectively around his girlfriend's shoulders and remonstrated with the photographers. One onlooker said: "There was a lot of effing and blinding mostly, it has to be said, from Prince Harry. He was got quite red in the face. "Eventually he and Chelsy made it through the crowds to his car and the two sped off." "

He looks dirty and grungy - doesn't he have someone to iron his clothes?

I agree Grace his clothes look rinkled up and messy. Obviously, the iron the clothes did not matter I would think at least he has a servant to do the iron for him, I guess he was too busy rushing to get his girlfriend since she was angry that he did not pick her up from the airport on time. It was a real long flight from South Africa to United Kingdom 11 HOURS is so long I know it will be boring for me being on a plan she may have had a couple of flight stops before she cam to the United Kingdom.

Hmmm... I am not sure how I feel about this work of art. I wonder how Harry feels about it, did he comment on it? Something puzzling about it though. The article says that "the Prince's head is earless, in reference to reports that militia leaders said they planned to send him back to his grandmother 'without his ears'". But it is obvious that the bronze prince has his ears... What's that all about?

This is just garbage...those who 'wanted to serve in Iraq but were unable to' don't need any kind of 'memorial', let alone one of a dead prince who in reality is very much alive.

Tacky and a waste of time, in my opinion.

This proves that he doesn't learn from past mistakes, wouldn't you say?  The next thing, he and his brother will be whingeing about bad publicity or press harrassment again.  I've totally lost patience with the young royals.  They have their hand out for all the privileges their titles bring but in turn do nothing but discredit the monarchy with their behaviour and refusal to realize that they have the responsibilities of duty and to act with reasonable decorum which come with being royal.  There is simply no future for the monarchy after Charles (and that will be bad enough) as far as I'm concerned - none.

Yes, I think Harry can do better than this!   My question is though this was obviously a very private Party.... who leaked those Photographs? And some friend?
