Prince Harry loves cigarette, tobacco, and liquor.
What kind of model is he setting for his people?

Royals did not ask to be role models for their people...they were born into a position where there is constanlty media pressure...so while people want a Royal to be this really well put together role model for their people they are not.

Thousands upon thousands (more then that, I am just putting it mildly) of people smoke and drink, and it is ones personal choice not too...if people think that just because Prince Harry smokes and drinks they need to, they need to have their heads examined. Prince Harry is acting as any normal 19 year old would...in fact many who are younger act this same exact way.

Besides even if Harry wasn't into those sorts of things, there are tons of other public figures who are...it can be picked up anywhere...and to think people pick -up the habit, simply because their Prince Charming does, is, I find, quite silly.

Harry to rough it in Africa
By PAUL THOMPSON
Royal Correspondent


PRINCE Harry is to find out what it is like to live among poor people — during a two-month trip to Africa.

The 19-year-old royal will take part in a community project helping poverty-stricken villages.

He will build homes and teach young mothers and children new skills.

It will mean eight-hour days lifting building materials in fierce heat.

The Prince has already spent part of his gap year as an Aussie cowboy.

A Palace insider said: “He doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty. He knows it could be a tough two months but he’s more than up for it.”

His exact destination has not been revealed for security reasons.

FROM HELLO!

22 JANUARY 2004

Prince Harry is to head off to Africa for the next stage of his gap year. The young royal will spend two months on the continent, working on community projects to help some of the world's poorest people.

For security reasons, the exact location has not been released yet. But Clarence House has revealed that Harry will be helping to build homes and teach new skills to mothers and children in the communities he visits.

The work will be physically as well as emotionally challenging, because the 19-year-old will have to spend long days lifting building materials in the fierce African heat. Palace insiders say he isn't afraid of getting his hands dirty, however, and the trip reflects the teenager's desire to help those who are most in need.

It is expected that Harry will visit a number of projects being run by international aid agencies. He is no stranger to tough physical work, having recently spent several months working on a cattle ranch in the Australian outback. The Prince will eventually go on to begin a military career when he enrols at Britain's Sandhurst officer-training academy.

I am really pleased with Prince Harry lately.

I am so happy to know that he is spending his gap year with a very logical and important purpose. It's rare to see people like that with such a good deed.
And Africa is indeed a nation that needs everyone's attention and help right now.
Especially with poverty and other social problems spreading and even growing.
So, I am happy and hopeful that Harry's presence and help would contribute a big effect to the people of the country he would be going..

I am also happy because he is not that over-acting type of royal. We can't evade the fact that not all royals are very good and easy to be with people. So, that's a nice trait of him. He is really like his mother, the late Princess Diana.

You maybe partly correct there gaoshan1021.

Prince Harry should be a role model to all people especially teenagers by practicing or living a healthy life away from smoking and drinking especially this time that those practices can lead to various serious diseases just like cancer.

But we have to revere or respect Prince Harry's decision with his own life. Whatever path he wants to walk in with his life, it's in us if we oppose it or just support him. It's also his own decision to either smoke or drink but I do hope that it would not lead him to being a chain smoker or a hard drinker because that's already bad for someone's health.

And besides, Prince Harry should also be careful and logical with the way he makes decision and does things because he is carrying the name of the Royal Family. Whatever positive or negative things he does, it greatly affects the whole royal family of Great Britain.

Is there a difference between cigarettes and tobacco? Many people, especially when young try nicotine and alchohol. It doesn't make them bad role models, or at least not as bad as those who get divorced in their late 20s.

Anyway, Prince Harry is a real Prince of Hearts and Kisses:

If Harry is not an "over acting" type of royal then he isn&#39;t much like his mother who has to have been the greatest actress of all time.

Perhaps he take more after his Aunt Anne who gets on and actually does things in places like Africa. She doesnt turn up in designer jeans, faultless makeup and with a hairdresser in tow.....?

British Royals Defend &#39;Horrible&#39; Prince Harry

Reuters
Friday, February 20, 2004; 6:59 AM


By Andrew Cawthorne

LONDON (Reuters) - Britain&#39;s royal family rounded on a columnist on Friday who had branded Prince Harry "a national disgrace," lazing his way through a year off in Australia and Africa and touching up girls in nightclubs.



The office of Harry&#39;s father, heir-to-the-throne Prince Charles, sent a furious letter to the Daily Express saying Carol Sarler&#39;s attack on his son was "unfair" and "nonsense."

"I understand that columnists are paid to express their opinions vigorously and with style, but the piece entitled &#39;Spoiled and lazy Harry is one of a kind"&#39; was grossly inaccurate and ill-informed," Charles&#39; new communications secretary Paddy Harverson wrote.

Harry, 19, is no stranger to controversy after dabbling in drink and drugs a couple of years ago. The youngest son of Charles and the late Princess Diana, he is currently in Lesotho following three months in Australia on a gap year after school.

In an extraordinary tirade against the prince, Sarler began her column on Wednesday: "That Prince Harry is a national disgrace is scarcely news.

"His exploits have been making headlines for years: the drinking, the drugging, the yobbing, the waste of the costliest education in the land, the explicit disdain for the lower orders, the increasingly sexual public romps -- we&#39;ve seen it all, we&#39;ve heard it all."

Calling him a "thoroughly horrible young man," Sarler said Harry "has rarely lifted a finger unless it&#39;s to feel up a cheap tart in a nightclub or shoot some harmless critter."

The columnist said Harry spent his time in Australia slumped in front of a TV waiting "to behave badly" at the next rugby match, while in Africa "he has reluctantly agreed to spend a bit of the trip staring at poor people."

A newcomer to the frequent spats between the royals and Britain&#39;s feisty tabloid press, having just been poached from Manchester United soccer club to run Charles&#39; PR efforts, Harverson took on the Express point-by-point.

In Australia, Harry spent most of his time working long days in high temperatures on cattle farms, where "his employers found him to be a hard and conscientious worker," Harverson wrote. He took a "deserved break" to see England win the rugby world cup.

In Africa, Harry has insisted on working on projects for disadvantaged children and their families rather than just making VIP-style visits, Harverson added.

"Like any other 19-year-old fortunate enough to be able to spend time traveling and working abroad, Harry should be allowed to enjoy and benefit from his experiences without being subject to the kind of ill-informed and insensitive criticism made in your paper by Ms Sarler," he wrote.

The Express column was a rare piece of vitriol against Harry who, like his older brother Prince William, has been treated relatively kindly by the media since an appeal for sensitivity following Diana&#39;s 1997 death in a Paris car crash.

Princes Harry & Wiliam really do make me draw a wry smile. Nethier of them have the faintest of intention of carring out Royal duties at any time and the media seem to fall for it at every turn. Wait until the "gap year"; "uni year" & in the future; "army/naval year" is over and then take pictures they cry&#33; these two boys are plying for time. They clearly have no wish to live in the spoylight at any time aqnd I wish that they wouuld stop stringing the public along I
