They are nice couple but these are not the best photos specially of Harry.

IMO, you can really see the resemblance between Harry and Charles (and Harry and Philip) in the most recent photos, especially around the nose/eye area...

Do people in the UK know that "squaw" is a very rude word? I see it pop up in tabloids and magazines. Even MAJESTY has used it.

But I guess it has been the slow season with hardly any royal stories for the last 4-6 weeks over summer, and they have to fill the pages.

No, is it? Here it is an American Indian female.

It's always amusing to read about Harry's familial resenblence to the Windsors in the same papers practically decided his paternity is anything but fromm the Windsor line.

It's not used here except as a term of derision.

Most americans do not consider the word Squaw as being anything other than a female Native American. Interesting article about the origin of the word. One can only hope that with time unenlightened individuals will perhaps enlighten themselved about the Native Americans enough to only use the word as intended.

Chelsy the Chav: Prince Harry's girlfriend pictured wearing a baseball cap, tracksuit and tasteless jewelry | Mail Online

I wonder which "public website" these pictures were gotten from? The Mail really is scraping the bottom of the barrel for royal stories these days.

(When I say "scraping the bottom of the barrel," I mean that they don't have any reputable sources, not that the pictures are that bad.)

A uni student went to a party... This is news to the English media. They obviously never went to school or University.

I'm wondering about this "tasteless" jewellery which apparently includes - gasp! - hoop earrings. Surely that's enough to disqualify her as a potential royal bride!

You actually needed to ask?

Good grief man, hoop earrings, even at a theme party . . . . (gasp) with crimes against fashion on that scale I can only surmise that she is completely beyond redemption.

Frankly, what I find more troubling is the fact that obviously a fellow student or acquaintance of a fellow student, who took part in this event, has posted the pics anonymously. I'd probably get paranoid, wondering who it is, wondering where I can go to, when it will happen next.

I think Chelsy has made her peace with the consequences of being Harry's girlfriend. There was nothing in the least inappropriate in the photo's or they would have been splashed across the headlines around the world. As Kbear said "A uni student went to a party... This is news to the English media".

She is not stupid enough to really let her hair down at such a "do". She already knows that cellphone cameras are everywhere and the net is forever!

I do not know but I assume the pictures were taken from facebook like all the other pics of Chelsy partying with her friends that ended up in papers before. This looks like a private pre-party at home not like an "official" student party with many strangers in attendance. Those were probably taken by a "friend" and then posted on facebook or a similar site.
I do not understand why the DM would consider them newsworthy but I guess since there's not much Royal news currently and they apparently didn't land the exclusives of Will and Kate in Salzburg they went with those.

Chav themed parties are pretty standard these days. A friend of mine recently had one of her 30th birthday parties on the same theme.

I have to write a thank you note to Daily Mail; they have enlightened me that being a chav and wearing a baseball hat at a friend's party is the same thing. Boy, they did have a very slow news day, didn't they?

This Chelsy chav story is just another way to fill their papers. Absolutely right, Isana. The DM can't grab exclusives (Salzburg wedding / camera theft), so they print non-news from facebook pictures of Chelsy and James Middleton.

Anyway, more drinking stories about Harry and Chelsy...

If it's true that Harry spent $10,000 (sorry, no "pound" key here, and so I'm using the North American equivalent) on booze, I'm disappointed in his and Chelsy's behavior. Harry isn't just another rich young man who can spend his money recklessly without people finding out.

First of all, I don't see how anyone could have found out exactly how much the bar tab really was. Most places, expecially ones catering to high-end clientelle are very tight lipped on what their patron's spending habits are. Second, it's not a secret that Harry is a rich young man. He doesn't need to pretend penny-pinching. People who have a problem with his being rich should find some other hobby to preoccupy themselve.

The story seems to be an extension of the club visit from last week. Harry looked pretty sober when leaving Boujis, leading Chelsy to the car, and quite steadily in both the photos and videos I've seen. So the claim of being tipsy is just ridiculous.

You don't need a pound key, ALT 156 does the trick:
