Prince Harry's Nazi uniform

  • #1
The 3rd in line to the English throne, prince Harry, has caused an outcry by wearing a nazi uniform to a fancy dress party. (He is going away to Sandhurst to train as an army officer in May, perhaps there is a connection?).
He is a known prankster, but is this just a harmless bit of fun?

Forget about the uniform. I just want to know from a reliable source (you? :eek: ) whether he is, you know, a bastard son.

Nah, I've never heard any rumours of that kind, but its not the kind of thing I'd take a lot of notice of if I did hear it.

There's a supermarket tabloid that had asserted he wasn't Charles' son. But those rags, excepting the Enquirer, are totally without cred.

You're not thinking of Harry Potter, are you? He's a right annoying little b******, and no mistake.

I heard he was 12th.

P.S. It was a harmless bit off fun and the media invaded his private life. It may not have been the right thing to do by any stretch of the imagination but we as the public should not judge when we do not like being judged ourselves.

Once again the media has blown everything out of proportion. Who cares if he dressed as a Nazi? Nazis are a part of history. Would there be the same outcry if one of the Bush daughters dressed as a confederate soldier? It was a sh$tty costume anyway.

A confederate soldier's uniform isn't in the same league as a Nazi uniform. I'm sure this was just a prank, but it was idiotic at best.

It's a little different. The confederates didn't have a lot of hate behind them the way the nazis did. Wearing a nazi uniform would be a little bit more like wearing a KKK uniform.

Anyway, I don't think it's a big deal. He probably just went a little too far with a joke. The media would cut him just as bad if he dresses as an abortion doctor for halloween - basically just medical clothes, rubber gloves, and a coat hanger :tongue:

Remember when anemia was the only sign of royal inbreeding? Now we have diminished mental facilities. Wearing that costume was, in my opinion, one of the stupidest moves I've ever seen. Even I put more thought into something before I do it.

"They keep the sun out of my eyes" said the young prince goofily.
"No, your highness, royal ADvisors, not royal Visors." corrected the tabloid reporter.
"OFF WITH YOUR HEAD!" replied the prince.

Perhaps you mean hemophilia ? :smile:

Royal pedigree is an anachronism. I would much rather the whole thing be done away with.

This article doesn't even deserve to be in the media, it's so pointless, why do all you anglophones get so upset every time nazi's come up. So what? Someone can dress as an axe murderer and get away with it but a swastika on your shoulder and your branded for life.

Okay, since I don't follow the new about the British royal family, what was the occassion he wore this outfit for? Was he supposed to be wearing a proper suit, or was this for a costume party? Smurf's point that you can dress as an axe murderer for a costume party is a good one. Afterall, depending on the theme, finding a good scary costume may have been just what was required, and a Nazi uniform would qualify as a scary costume. The idea of costumes is to dress as something you're not. Now, if this was a formal event, and he was supposed to be wearing a regular suit, then this would be cause for shock. It's probably really hard to get into much mischief growing up under public scrutiny as he has. Give him a little leeway to be a stupid kid once in a while. And for being a stupid kid, I recommend my usual punishment, the 10 page essay.

Natives and colonials? Those royalty sure come up with lame themes for costume parties! In that case, the kid was off his rocker completely. It doesn't even fit the theme! I guess he really was going for shock value (or was he costumed as a skinhead...we've got them over here in the "colonies.") Okay, a 10 page essay isn't punishment enough. For that level of stupidity, it's a 50 page report on atrocities committed by the Nazi party and modern social issues associated with Nazi symbols, 12 point Times font, double-spaced, 1 inch margins...and I'm going to check every page with a ruler (hey, I know all those font and margin tricks, no using Geneva font because it takes more space, or making the margins just a tad larger than 1 inch). :devil:
