Harry didn't exactly come from a very happy family. Plus, I've heard that the only reason why Harry smokes in public is to annoy his father.
IMO, he comes from a "family" that has become increasingly dysfunctional in recent years. A control-freakin' father with repressive and abusive ways who never loved anyone other than himself is not exactly a role model to have much less being left with as the sole parent. This is not a healthy nor happy situation for any teen to be confronted with, especially one who is so frequently under public scrutiny. With a parent like that it's only a wonder that Harry doesn't smoke in his sleep!

It's surprising that someone so keen on sports is a smoker, but teens do seem to think they're immortal.

However, since he comes from a broken home (that sounds as if it was broken from at least the time he would have been old enough to notice), a paternal line where appearances are paramount and emotions are repressed and where he's considered less important than his brother simply because of their relative ages, and a maternal line where emotional instability seems to be the norm rather than the exception, I suppose that turning to cigarettes and alcohol wasn't that surprising after all.

THE HORSE WHISPERER

Prince Harry demonstrated a touch of animal magic at a polo match in Gloucestershire on Monday. The young royal, who had come along to cheer on his brother William, was pictured blowing into the nostrils of the horses to help calm them down.

The 19-year-old would have played in the match himself, but he is still recovering from a knee injury suffered during a recent Army training session. Harry still did his bit to help the team, by soothing the animals before they took to the field. And his efforts have drawn comparisons to the legendary American "horse whisperer" Monty Roberts, who inspired a film starring Robert Redford.

Monty, who once had a meeting with the Queen, became renowned for his ability to win a horse's trust. But Harry is also well recognized for his equestrian skills, having honed his abilities during his time working as a "jackaroo" in the Australian Outback.

In the end the teenage royal's contribution wasn't enough to secure victory for Wills' Umbogo team, because they lost to White Hall. Perhaps they will fare better when Harry's knee gets better and he can join them on the field instead.

But i thought that Charles wasn't all that controlling and that was one of the reasons why Harry had done pot.

There's many methods of controlling others than outright having them on a short leash. A cunning controller will always make the outward appearance of being a "tolerant" reasonable, caring parent, they don't want to become a blatant case for Child Protective Services to investigate. There's also a difference between controlling and neglectful. In the case of Prince Charles, he's always managed to be both very well.

I don't think Sophie was responding to you. Her post follows a post that criticises Charles as a father; it doesn't follow your post.
