I agree with Warren.

The last surprise photograph (Harry on the bike) was intended to make him look like a regular guy, like the young man next door who loves to race around on his bike. And you like that guy. It's part of the modernizing of the monarchy for the next generation. (Bet you don't see Charles buzzing around on his motorbike any time soon!)

But does everyone own a motorbike? They get kind of pricey.

Those who are interested in bikes but don't have one may aspire to own one. And as we know, "aspiration" is the basis of most modern marketing. If one is not a bike person, then we have Harry looking upright and smart in his uniform which is much more reassuring. Women will probably relate to the Wills and Harry pic in arty black and white. The latter pic is also resonant of those old pics of Diana and the children, also in black and white. Co-incidence?

Harry

ORIGINALLY POSTED BY kpusa1981

What do you all think about if Prince Harry had enlisted in the British Army once he had enough GCSEs marks and done his A-Levels and the CCF at Eton?
Then he could still have done his Officer Training at RMA Sandhurst when he did.

Does Harry even ride a bike? I'm all for marketing to the masses but its nice if there's a little truth to it.

I did some reading on this. Harry and William both have motorbikes. Harry posed on William's bike (don't know why). William's bike can go up to 165 mph (let's hope William doesn't go 165 mph!).

in the interview thing from somewhere, harry stated that he couldn't ride around in the field because he couldn't wear a helmet for the picture. i don't know why he didn't pose on his own bike.

Both boys do seem to use the same photographer as Diana. Can't remember his name though.

The picture of Will and Harry reminds me of one of them with Diana, I am looking for it but I can't seem to find it. The one with them behind the wall and harry is sitting on it.

Yes thats it. I think they use him because it makes them feel closer to their mother.

I think they know he can deliver a reliable product. His Diana pictures were so beautiful. They probably have some comfort in working with him too, since they've known him so long.

IMO, his pictures of William and Harry are not as successful. Rather plain and cliché (especially the two pictures of Harry which were first released and the pics for William's 18 birthday).
But I love the one were they are the three Wales in a tree (I think it was a new year card). Was it from Testino (it looks like him)?

Back to harry: there a article in the BRF news tread about a life portrait of the Royals (Will and harry included). The artist says about Harry:

Quote:
'For Harry sitting for the portrait meant an hour off Latin classes so he was delighted.'
