Though the incident didn’t prevent the royal from being named the world’s most eligible bachelor earlier this month, Harry still regrets it. “I probably let myself down, I let my family down, I let other people down,” he told People during a recent interview at his military base in Afghanistan. (You know, the context in which it makes most sense to talk about your nudie photos.)
Tag: Prince Harry (1-7 of 7)
Heavy may be the head that wears the crown, but hot is the head that’s third in line.
Prince Harry, 28, has been named the Top Bachelor, according to the editors at Town & Country, which named the current top 50 bachelors in the world. “Prince William’s baby brother flirts and flies Apache helicopters with equal aplomb,” the magazine wrote. The list isn’t very Hollywood specific (although both George Clooney and Jack Nicholson made the cut). Instead, in addition to the prince, people like Ralph Lauren’s son, Andrew, President Obama’s speechwriter Jon Favreau, and Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos (who has dated both Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton) snagged a spot.
Most hilariously, still-just-a-high-schooler Conor Kennedy made the cut. The magazine said it best: “A mere child to some, this Deerfield Academy junior and son of Robert Kennedy Jr. was a gateway to the compound for Taylor Swift. Now he’s lyric fodder.” Insert your own ‘never, ever wanting to get back together’ joke here. READ FULL STORY
Will the world soon welcome another itty-bitty British person who has to worry about inheriting the dreaded Prince Charles Hairline? Possibly, according to Internet chatter. Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, has reportedly been raising eyebrows by toasting with water at events celebrating Queen Elizabeth II’s diamond jubilee and sporting a “well-defined ‘baby bump’” at a public appearance in Singapore. Sure, rumors about Kate’s possible pregnancy have been floating around ever since she donned that sleeved wedding dress — but this time, they might actually have merit.
Especially if the following information is true.* See, my English spy friends have been keeping an eye on William and Kate’s family for the past few weeks — and what they’ve seen is a pretty strong indication that the Duchess really does have a bun in her royal oven. Here’s what I’ve been told so far:
- After downing a few shots with Ryan Lochte, Prince Harry kept talking about how he can’t wait to be the “cool uncle” who “teaches the kid how to play billiards.”
Prince Harry’s nude photo scandal has done anything but stay in Vegas. First, the photos were leaked online, then they were published on the cover of a British tabloid. Of course, no one actually seemed to be scandalized after the pics surfaced. If anything, many were all too eager to join in the fun.
The fun reached a new high this week with an online video game based on the royal’s Vegas adventures. Yes, you read that right. A game.
What happens in Vegas…starts a viral movement?
After Prince Harry’s Las Vegas nude-photo scandal, which is being totally blown out of proportion if you ask anyone who isn’t a member of the Royal Family, it seemed like everyone was eager to weigh in on his Sin City exploits. Over the weekend, Rupert Murdoch pulled a Chris Crocker and essentially said, “Leave Harry alone!”And while the scandal may not have thrilled the Queen, average citizens seem to be taking it all in stride. (I mean, was he doing anything that everyone wasn’t already assuming he was participating in?) Now, thousands of his co-people in uniform are joining in on the nude party.
Turns out what happens in Vegas doesn’t necessarily stay there. Prince Harry has been taking a lot of heat for appearing in a set of nude photos snapped in Sin City last weekend and widely distributed online. Even though the royal’s Little Windsor isn’t visible in the pics, they’re still pretty embarrassing for a family that values tradition and decorum over all else. (Unless we’re talking about Fergie.)
emperor prince with no clothes has one valiant defender: Rupert Murdoch, human embodiment of compassion. “Prince Harry. Give him a break,” the News Corp. CEO tweeted Saturday while slowly stroking a blindingly white Persian Longhair. “He may be on the public payroll one way or another, but the public loves him, even to enjoy Las Vegas.” Murdoch then cheekily advised the prince to “avoid playmates with cameras.”
Aw, how sweet! Except, wait: The “give him a break” tweet came just one day after The Sun, Murdoch’s own tabloid, published the grainy shots of Harry in his altogether. “Hello, kettle? This is Rupert Murdoch. You’re black!“
Poor Prince Harry.
Someone lucky enough to be in his majesty’s naked presence decided to take photos of the Prince’s “crown jewels.” (That was low hanging fruit, I apologize. And I’m sorry for that bad pun, too.)
Then — luckily for us — they decided to be even worse human beings and release the photos. Come on guys, really? You’re partying with a Prince and this is what you do? Not cool. (But also, thank you so much because otherwise we wouldn’t get to see them, so maybe I’m a bit hypocritical.)
Now, his grandmother might care. He is a royal after all. But the rest of us shouldn’t. And here are five reasons why.
