I agree with you, lucy. He really seems like the only royal who actually isn't living in a rose-colored world. Even William has become, in my eyes, exceedingly elitist these past few years. It's nice to see Harry getting off his haunches and doing something with his life. I think everyone's proud of him.

Harry is also my fave Windsor. And wow, now that I realize it, it does seem like William is becoming an elitist.

What does everyone think about this recent set of stories on Harry? True? Or a bitter teacher trying to get attention brought to herself?

A bitter teacher! This one probably thought that they could get their five minutes of fame by accusing Prince Harry of this. But as my mother and Ray Romano's father from Everybody Loves Raymond says, education is a scam.

I don't know. I think it's a little of both. I read an article about it on CNN.com - must be big news when it makes the front page on that site! The article I read talked about a tape on which Harry admits to only writing a sentence or so and the teacher doing the rest. So, then I think there has to be some truth to it. Or, it could just be a quote taken out of context. Who knows?

I also think that it could be a teacher trying for her 15 minutes. She would have to know that something like this would make headlines are create quite a scandal. Although, I have to think that if this story is true, it makes her look bad as well (at least to me), for not standing on principle and refusing to go along with it in the first place.

Here is the article that I saw on CNN.com

READING, England (AP) -- A former teacher who claims she was unfairly dismissed from Eton College after being ordered to help Prince Harry cheat in an exam has tried to prove her allegation to a tribunal by playing a secret tape recording she had made while talking to him.

The former teacher, Sarah Forsyth, 30, has told the tribunal that she wrote nearly all the text of an art project that Prince Harry submitted to pass an important exam in 2002. On the tape, he can be heard saying: "It was a tiny, tiny bit. I did about a sentence of it."

Forsyth claims that Prince Harry, the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, was referring during this segment of the brief tape to the amount of work that he had done on the course materials submitted to the exam board.

The grade that Prince Harry received for the course work helped him win admission to his next school, Sandhurst, where he is now training as a military officer.

Nigel Giffen, a lawyer for Eton, on Thursday called Forsyth's conduct "pretty grubby."

Paddy Harverson, a spokesman for Prince Charles, told the hearing: "This is incredibly unfair on Harry. Miss Forsyth's lawyers have given the court a brief extract from the tape and placed their own interpretation upon it."

"The tape ... contains barely audible half-sentences, and it appears to have been edited. It is also difficult to tell what Harry is saying and what he is referring to, due to the poor quality of the recording and the disjointed nature of the tape. The fact remains Harry did not cheat. The allegations have been independently investigated and proven unfounded," Harverson said.

Thursday's hearing was held to prepare for next year's tribunal on Forsyth's alleged unfair dismissal.

Forsyth claims that she was fired on June 16, 2003, as a teacher at Eton, one of Britain's most prestigious private elementary and secondary schools, after being harassed by Ian Burke, then head of Eton's art department. She said Burke ordered her to carry out some of the work on Prince Harry's art project.

She said she secretly taped her conversation with the prince in her classroom, knowing that she was about to be unfairly dismissed from her job. "It was very difficult to talk to Prince Harry because he was always closely guarded by bodyguards," she testified.

Robin Allen, Forsyth's lawyer, said she got Burke's order after the school announced she would be given a one-year contract in the future, not a permanent teaching post at Eton.

"She was not happy about the order to help Prince Harry," Allen said. "She feared that if she complained about it at the time she would be victimized."

Previous complaints Forsyth had made about Burke's conduct were ignored, Allen said.

"She said she felt it was unethical and probably contributed to cheating, and she felt she had been asked to do it because of Prince Harry's position at the time," Allen said.

Giffen told the hearing that the "Harry issue" bore no relevance to the unfair dismissal case and should be excluded from the evidence. He argued that Eton headmaster Tony Little had been unaware of the taped conversation at the time he decided to dismiss her.

Allen disputed that, saying Little had known about the tape, that it played a role in her dismissal and therefore was central to her argument of having been mistreated.

Giffen said Forsyth's ultimate goal was to win more than the £10,000 ($18,000, €14,500) that Eton had offered her to terminate her contract.

READING, England (AP) -- An examination board said Friday that a tape recording in which Prince Harry allegedly admitted cheating on an art exam was insufficient to warrant a renewed investigation.

A former teacher who claims she was unfairly dismissed from Eton College after being ordered to help Prince Harry cheat on an exam tried to prove her allegation to a tribunal on Thursday by using a secret tape recording she had made while talking to him.

Sarah Forsyth, 30, has told the tribunal that she wrote nearly all the text of an art project that Prince Harry submitted to pass an important exam in 2002.

Her attorney, Robin Allen, quoted Harry as saying on the tape: "It was a tiny, tiny bit. I did about a sentence of it."

The examining board, Edexcel, said the teacher's evidence was not enough to warrant a new investigation.

"Edexcel has now reviewed the tape both by listening to it and reading the transcript provided for the tribunal," said board spokeswoman Stevie Pattison-Dick.

"It has been determined that the tape is inconclusive and not sufficiently evidentiary grounds to warrant the reopening of the malpractice investigation in this instance."

Forsyth claims that Prince Harry, the son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, was referring to the amount of work that he had done on the course materials submitted to the exam board.

Eton later released its own transcript of the tape, with Prince Harry something slightly different: "I was, like, a sentence in it."

The grade that Prince Harry received for the course work helped him win admission to his next school, Sandhurst, where he will train as a military officer.

Paddy Harverson, a spokesman for Prince Charles, said Thursday: "This is incredibly unfair on Harry. Miss Forsyth's lawyers have given the court a brief extract from the tape and placed their own interpretation upon it."

As far as I can make out these allegations were delt with at the time. There seems no reason to bring them up again. However our press it seems, are hell bent on making Prince Harry out to be some sort of rebel. They probably haven't liked all the good works he has been doing lately and so couldn't wait to knock the poor guy down again.

It really irritates me that the press has access to private issues. Prince Harry has a right to privacy. Because he was born into the royal family does not mean that the world has the right to pry into his life.

I couldn't agree more.
