Exactly!

From my memories of parties with Vietnam vets, I'm impressed that he was conscious at 10 am, much less well enough to go home then. He deserves to party, and to party hard, and long. I just hope we don't see any evidence of it. I hope he has learnt that much.

Lets not forget the last party he had "indoors"

Hopefully he will be able to enjoy himself, and everything will remain private

I just wanted to pint out that we don't know enough about Harry to know what kind of entertanment he had.
Mmm...by this definition I have NEVER partied. And all this time I though I was a yahoo who loves to party!

The more I read what he said, the more I think the MoD set a trap for him and he fell into it. He was relaxed and his guard was down, and he said things he should not have said, or said them in a way that appears flippant. For example, when he made the "take them out of the game" comment he was sitting outside with men running around behind him doing things and he kept looking around at them; his mind was on what was going on around him, not on the interviewer or the questions he was being asked.

Now that's interesting but the question is WHY would the MoD want to set a trap for him?

Good question as he is, after all, their premier "Poster Boy" for the Army. I can't see them shooting themselves in the foot.

By the same token I do not believe Harry shot himself in the foot either. It is just that every single thing he said, even his body language, has been put under the microscope and dissected to death. Words and gestures have been taken out of context, etc. Anything that can make him look like a bloodthirsty, infantile, sociopath, you name it. Any undesirable slant you could possibly imagine is being put on Harry.

It is not enough that Harry wanted to be a soldier, and not surprisingly, the best soldier he could be. Oh no, that started out as a big positive. Harry had officially finally "grown up" but now, after acquitting himself well in the theatre of war, his actions are being viewed in an entirely new, nasty, and not a little creepy way.

Move over Vlad the Impaler, here comes Hooray Harry, fastest gun in the west!

How literally does one take the term "current events" around here? Can we find out what he's doing right now, like some sort of Twitter feed?

We find out 99% of all royal engagements and outings because of Twitter. There are several people you can follow if you have twitter.
