What Harry Does in Vegas . . .

by Kate Collins


What Harry did in Vegas obviously did not stay in Vegas.  Seriously, in this age of instant cell phone communication and Facebook photos, did Harry really think it would?  You have to wonder what crossed his mind as he slowly stripped down to his birthday suit. “Who’s going to care if I’m buck naked?” or maybe “Who’s going to notice?” or even “What are they gonna do, shoot a pic of me?”

On the other hand, maybe he was too far gone for anything to cross his mind.

Surprisingly, at least to me, a full 68% of Brits surveyed said Harry’s antics were acceptable for a young man on a private holiday.

Even a “Royal?” Apparently so.

I was expecting him to receive a severe dressing down from his grandmother the Queen, but if she gave him one, then what happened in Buckingham Palace clearly stayed in Buckingham Palace.

I’ve heard that Las Vegasians are up in arms over this violation of their code of honor (you know, the what happens in Vegas thing) and are trying to smoke out the person who snapped those pics of Harry. I sure wouldn’t want to be in her or his shoes right now.

What’s your opinion? Should a Royal, even a young one on holiday, remain dignified wherever he finds himself or be able to let loose and git nekkid?  Do you agree with the whole "What happens in Vegas" mindset?

I can't find my earlier comment but I think that Harry was just influenced by new friends, drink and environment. And youth! It must be hard to be him but it sounds like he tries to forget who is watching! What would he do at Mardi Gras? LOL

The only cause for concern is that his security people didn't do their jobs properly. Other than that, who cares about a young, single man and what he gets up to on holiday? It was hardly an orgy.

Well, it is a bit stupid of him of course, and a "good" friend to do such a thing. But I do think he is entiteld to be human.

I personally think people (particularly most U.S.-ians) tend to be too uptight about nudity in general. For heaven's sake - he was naked in a hotel room.

As the anonymous poster said, I think the most concerning issue is that his security detail fell down on the job -- not that his pants fell down.

I hadn't even thought about the security issue! Thanks for mentioning it. I'll bet some heads will roll.

One more vote for "he's a young, single man having fun and his security team needs to be replaced." Come on, like all other 20-something red-blooded males don't try (or do) the same thing when in Vegas. Harry's become my favorite royal.

He's old enough to know better! As many parties as I had gone to when I was really young, and as drunk as people got, okay, we weren't ROYALTY, but no one ever seemed to have a predilection to "git nekked"!LOL

Kate Collins said...

Do you agree that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, or do you think people need to be more accountable for their actions?

Lizzie said...

Accountable. We all do things at some point in our lives that are questionable...but being able to face it and own up to it and say that you learned from it is all part of being an adult. I think it helps us grow:)

This is not the first of Harry's embarrasing escapades, and I think his problems result from excessive behavior, with alcohol as a common thread. Instead of blaming his bodyguards - who admittedly fumbled the ball on this occasion - I would like to see the 27-year-old prince take responsibility for his actions. While he may never be king, like it or not, he has a high position and everything he does reflects on the royal family. He is human and should be able to have fun away from the camera, but I'm a firm believer in "to whom much is given, much is required."

I don't care what Harry does...but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to remember than everybody and anybody these days has a cell phone camera...and that pics of any kind can be shared in less time than it takes for even the bodyguards/handlers to intervene. I don't think Harry is that dumb...I'm worried that there may have been more involved here than alcohol for there to have been such a slip up. If you take a look at the history of the monarchy, there are many kings and queens who were never supposed to be king and queen...Harry's mom is one of them. Harry definitely should take responsibility for himself and whatever he's gotten himself into, but the security breach is tremendous.
