Prince Harry Admits He Let Himself And His Family Down, Demands More Privacy

Prince Harry Admits He Let Himself And His Family Down, Demands More Privacy
Entertainment

After being named Town & Country’s bachelor of the year, Prince Harry has yet again been thrown back into the spotlight.

While this time around he is being shown under a different sort of light, it’s hard to forget that just a year ago we were looking at photos of him cupping his genitals in his Las Vegas hotel room.

In a recent interview, Prince Harry admits of a concerned Prince Charles reminding him of his duty as third in line to the throne. The younger prince confesses that he “let himself and his family down” after being photographer naked in Las Vegas last year.

While Harry admits that he ought to have acted a bit more “princely” he believes that the media should have respected his privacy and never have published “private” photos of him playing ‘strip billiards’ with a group of ladies he picked up at the bar- especially since the media knew that he was to ship out to Afghanistan shortly after.

“My father’s (the king) always trying to remind me about who I am and stuff like that. But it’s very easy to forget about who I am when I am in the Army. Everyone’s wearing the same uniform and doing the same kind of thing,” he says. “I have always said work hard, play hard. I will always be enjoying the job … however long it may carry on for, and then I have the other job to fall back on.”

Prince Harry is an Apache helicopter pilot and admits that he loves being one because it gets him out of the media spotlight.

“Certain people remind me, ‘Remember who you are, so don’t always drop your guard’. At the end of the day I probably let myself down [in Vegas], I let my family down, I let other people down. “But I was in a private area and there should be a certain amount of privacy that one should expect. Back at home all my close friends rallied around me and were great.”

‘Forrest Gump’ As Directed By Wes Anderson Is Perfect (Video)

Wes Anderson, he’s so hot right now. It seems the new wave of parodies for the time being is everything Wes Anderson (don’t worry, “Frozen” parodies aren’t going anywhere).

Singularity At The Cinema: ‘Transcendence,’ ‘Her’ And Fighting Against The Future

“Transcendence” isn’t a very good movie. It has the setup to be a thought-provoking, sci-fi, action flick, without any real action or thought of which to speak. It’s essentially the last 20 minutes of “Her,” spread glacially over a two-hour-and-twenty-minute run time. The biggest problem with “Transcendence,” however, is that it foregrounds and obsesses over its technology at the […]
