Are raves themselves illegal, or is it the conduct that typically goes on inside one?

It depends, some are legal with an application for a temporary event notice. The problem is that many do not apply for a license and there seems to be some question as to whether the event Harry attended, involved the organisers breaking in.

Fair point, but is anybody ever likely to do any detective work to ascertain whether the said Mr Gaba exists? I doubt it.

No, just the one Paul Gaba from that area.

..... though the "guest list" was not confined to the area, as a certain Prince Harry from London SW1 travelled to E1 for the event!

The amount of time spent trying to disprove the one and only Paul Gaba in the whole of London is not the party organiser named in the Mail, in an effort to disprove Harry's attendance at an illegal rave, has been hilarious to observe.

I don´t know anything about these so called raaves, only what I have read but surely it is a danger to crowd people into what was described as a dilapidated apartment which had been sealed off because of complaints from neighbours, the door had to be broken open for the festivities to start. It sounds like a dangerous situation for any young person, let alone the third in line to the throne.I gather that now Harry is a young officer these have been dispensed with?
The photographs of the place shown in the paper indicated it is a small space, and it seems there must be some reason for these young well to-do young people to attend other than a friendly get together. Perhaps they are bored with their usual palatial surroundings and enjoy the novelty of "slumming it".

Ah, if your concern is about the venue rather than the event I certainly think this is a legitimate issue. There is definitely a health and safety hazard about partying in run-down places and it's not making his minders job any easier.
That would be my only problem with the event but admittedly that's a big deal.

Oh definitely. Let's 'slum it up' but among toffs only. The way it was described it sounds like a glorified house party not a real rave.
Nothing sinister but severely lacking in originality in my humble opinion.

I think this topic has been flogged to death, but here are my two bits for what it is worth:

1) Breaking into or damaging a property is clearly not on, and is deplorable

2) There does not appear to be any concrete evidence that Harry was actually there, despite the (credible?) quote by a Mr Gaba to a tabloid that he saw Harry.

3) Even if Harry was there, I don't see this as a major issue. His firends, Guy Pelly and co, were headed to a party, and Harry went along as well. This was not a major opublic engagement, just a one-off social occassion. I do not think it is for Clarence House to "check" whether each venue has received the necessary licenses etc. before Harry visits. Since this whole discussion is based on speculation and poitentially less than credible reportng by a tabloid, it may well be that it could be as simple as some of Harry's friends asking if he wanted to come along to a "cool" party in the East End and he just popping in there for a bit. However, given the relatively few crediuble facts surrounding this evening, it could just be anything else!!!

From the article
Quote:
It would appear old habits die hard for Prince Harry and former girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
The pair, who separated three months ago, were partying within a mile of each other into the early hours of yesterday.
Only a mile!

I'm sure Harry can raise lots of money here in the U.S. from American socialites eager to rub elbows with a real royal. And who might be desirous of landing a big catch for their daughters now that the prince is apparently single again.

Another grant of 'special leave'. I begin to wonder if he will ever become a fully fledged pilot.

Here is the Telegraphs article

The 24-year-old is to participate in a charity polo match in New York as well as taking part in a series of official engagements.
The match will act as a fundraiser for Sentebale, the charity supporting African Aids orphans he set up in memory of his late mother.

The African motorcycle jaunt in October is one that immediately springs to mind
