Prince Harry tipped for trip down under


PRINCE Harry is reportedly heading to Australia later this year to play polo and watch the Rugby World Cup final in Sydney.

The trip, planned for November, would be the first foreign visit the Prince has made on his own.

According to The Bulletin magazine, the prince will lead his Young England polo team in a special Ambassadors Cup match, to be held at the Millamolong polo ground, in central-west NSW.

The grounds custodian, Mr James Ashton, said he had received a request from British polos |governing association, Hurlingham, to host the cup.

“The principal purpose of the Ambassadors Cup, according to Ashton, is to enable the Young England side of which Harry is captain and which was recently soundly thrashed by the French to salvage some pride at the expense of Australias young polo turks,” The Bulletin reported.

The magazine said there had been speculation Prince Harry would do some voluntary work in an Aboriginal community but that the royal visit was timed more to coincide with the Rugby World Cup final in Sydney on November 22.

In London, a spokeswoman for St James Palace refused to confirm or deny the report.

“We havent confirmed any plans for the Princes gap year,” the spokeswoman said.

Some confirmation might be forthcoming in September or October about the Princes plans for his year between finishing school and starting at university.

Prince Harry's Cheeky Pick-Up Line Revealed

5 AUGUST 2003
While the average woman has been approached with every pick-up phrase in the book, the ladies who catch 18-year-old Prince Harry's eye are apparently on the receiving end of quite an original variation on the theme.

According to an article in Vanity Fair, the handsome teenager's royal status comes in handy when he's chatting with girls, enabling him to charm them with the quip: "Want to come back to my palace for a drink?" ( - Very cheeky indeed&#33

The magazine also claims that Prince Harry brings his newfound female pals to "Club H", his bachelor quarters - complete with bar and hi-tech sound system - at Prince Charles' Highgrove estate.

While there has been no confirmation of reports, a Palace spokesperson for Harry offered: "We have no comment, except to say that it is probably nonsense."

14 AUGUST 2003

Prince Harry's anxious wait for his A-level grades finally came to an end when he, along with hundreds of thousands of other British students, received his results on Thursday. St James's Palace has revealed that the 18-year-old, who is planning to apply to Sandhurst military college, got a B in art and a D in geography.

"I am very proud of Harry," said his father Prince Charles. "He has worked hard for these examinations and I am very pleased with today's results."

The young Prince had originally intended to take three subjects in the examinations, but he dropped history of art after his AS exams last year. He will spend a gap year travelling and working before beginning his military training.

"By achieving two A-Level passes, Prince Harry is able to continue pursuing his wish for a future career in the Army," said a St James's Palace spokesman.

"Prince Harry distinguished himself at Eton in the school's combined cadet corps and was promoted to the highest rank of cadet officer in May 2003. In the same month, he led a detachment of 48 cadets as parade commander in the Eton Tattoo."

What are the A-level marks? What do "B" and "D" stand for? "Bad" and "Dreadful"?

I have never understood the A/O level thing, but this board has inspired me to expand my horizons.

Apparently A-E are passing grades, with A being the highest. There is an article on the BBC website about it. If you are like me, trying desperately to avoid doing real work, you may wish to check it out.

BBC News "A-levels 'are not meaningless'"

Also:

From:http://www.studyinbritain.com/uk_educational_system.asp

The British pattern of education is similar to that of the United States, but differs in appreciable ways. The British pattern completes in secondary education with standardized examination s commonly called "O" (Ordinary) levels. After 11 years if study a student's education may be summed up in only four or five (but in some cases as many as 10) examination grades.

Those interested in attending a university must study for another two years and then take "A" (Advanced) Level examinations. This advanced level is similar to AP examinations in the United States, and is a transition between secondary and tertiary study. Many of these exams are monitored or graded by British examination committees under the auspices of British universities (for example, the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate in Singapore or the University of London School Examinations Board, etc.).

Bachelor's degrees in the British pattern are typically three years in duration. The bachelor's degree is completed after 16 years of primary, secondary, and postsecondary education. Bachelor's Honours degree students must take more modules and usually complete more independent study. Admission to the next level of education usually requires the Bachelor's Honours degree. Master's and Doctoral degree programs follow the bachelor's degree.

Prince accused of stealing Aboriginal motifs in his art

Peter Shadbolt in Sydney and Peter Collins in Perth
Tuesday August 19, 2003
The Guardian

In terms of cultural distances, they don't come much greater than Buckingham Palace and the deserts of Western Australia. But Prince Harry has unwittingly put the two worlds on a collision course with his Aboriginal-inspired A-level artworks, unveiled earlier this year as part of his 18th birthday portraits.

The images flew around the world. They may have sparked admiration at home, but by the time they reached the Aboriginal communities that had inspired them, that admiration had turned to anger. With a sense of cultural understanding worthy of his grandfather, the Duke of Edinburgh, Prince Harry - due to spend his gap year in Australia later this year - has offended Aboriginal people before he has set foot in the country.

Some of Australia's best-known Aboriginal artists have recently become aware of the prince's paintings of lizard motifs and claim he has stolen their culture. That the artworks have been valued at £15,000 each has compounded the insult to poor desert communities.

"He needs to get down here and see where it [the lizard symbol] came from," said Julie Dowling, who is among the top five contemporary urban Aboriginal artists. "He needs to figure out where that image came from, he needs to follow it back," she added, saying the lizard symbol had totemic significance in at least seven Aboriginal regions and many clans.

"What he has to realise is that when he does that, he's ripping off another family. His grandmother is the head of his church, he should show respect for other people's religions."

Prince Harry has wandered into one of the most contentious new issues in Aboriginal communities - the problem of intellectual property rights over cultural works sold in an unregulated market.

Buckingham Palace said the paintings do not "purport to be an aboriginal piece of work. We haven't received any formal complaints and it's never been the intention of the prince to cause any offence."

Downing pointed to the work of Turkey Tolson, who sold a painting for $2,000 (then around £750) just before he died in 2001. The work was resold in 2002 for $500,000. "We're talking about an amazing piece of cultural heritage - it was a complex piece that said a lot of things - that just went overseas," Dowling said.

Such stories have sparked a new kind of Aboriginal activism, with Robert Eggington, of the Dumbartung Aboriginal Corporation, investigating alleged cases of cultural exploitation.

"When we see our symbols - important symbols for us that represent lightning, stars and waterways and other important religious entities - being used on underwear or toilet seat covers, it can be very disappointing. The only thing we've got left is our culture and when we see this it strips our work of its integrity and its dignity," he said.

"There is a world demand for Aboriginal art but unfortunately people sometimes buy works to go with their carpets or curtains. When you see people mimicking our culture, for instance people playing a didgeridoo as if it were a toy, it's very offensive."

Mr Eggington took elders from his Bardi clan, based in Western Australia, to Hollywood to confront author Marlo Morgan, who claimed to have gone walkabout in the outback with a primitive tribe, but whose book was later relabelled as fiction. The book, Mutant Messages Down Under, a pastiche of Aboriginal lore that paid scant heed to anthropological veracity, became a hit in the late 1990s, rocketing on to the bestseller list with the endorsement of media stars such as Oprah Winfrey.

Mr Eggington travelled across the outback but could not find Aboriginal people who could corroborate Morgan's story. Anne Loxley, a Sydney-based curator specialising in Aboriginal art, said she expects a large test case about indigenous intellectual property in the near future.

"With the law going the way it is, even Prince Harry could spark something off," she said, adding that the prince had made the fatal error of appreciating the aboriginal works for their aesthetic value alone.

"You might be able to defend him on the grounds that he was copying one of the great masters and brushing up his technique. But there's no way you can do that with the abstractions of contemporary Aboriginal art. At best his work is quaint but misinformed, at worst it's really quite regrettable. Considering how well known Aboriginal art is, and the presence it has on the modern art scene, you'd hope that one of the world's most prestigious schools would have better informed art teachers."

Royals with a taste for the arts

· Prince Charles
Has been a keen painter since the mid-1980s because he felt an "overwhelming urge" to express what he saw with watercolours. The paintings mainly depict natural landscapes but he has said that he does not think they are much good. In 2001 he won a special award at the the Florence International Biennale of Contemporary Art

· Prince Albert
Had a keen appreciation of painting and was one of the first collectors in Britain to buy so-called primitive Italian and German painting. Through the crown jeweller Garrard, he designed many gifts for his wife and family. He also had a keen interest in architecture and was behind the building of the Royal Albert Hall, which was completed after his death

· Henry VIII
Was said to be a great music lover and composed many songs and hymns, possibly including Greensleeves, though many historians dispute this. He also wrote poetry and was a skilled lute player.

Harry dash to aid car girl

GALLANT Prince Harry became a knight of the road — when he went to the aid of a stranded woman motorist.
He tried to fix the young blonde’s conked out car as she stood open mouthed. And when he failed to start the red Ford Fiesta Harry asked his minders to see if they could get it going.

A royal source said: “She completely freaked out when she saw who was looking under her car and she had to be calmed down by his bodyguards. Harry had a look at the obvious things to make sure everything was connected and there was nothing stopping the car from starting.”

Harry’s good deed happened as he stopped to fill up a VW Golf at a BP petrol station in Oldbury on the Hill near his home at Highgrove in Gloucestershire. He spotted the helpless girl cautiously peering under the bonnet of her car on the forecourt and volunteered to help. But he was unable to get it started and she waited for a breakdown service.

A royal aide said: “This sounds like Prince Harry. He always tries to help other people when he can.”

Harry, 18, who has been celebrating passing his A-levels, has spent most of the summer home alone at Highgrove as brother William, 21, travels with pals in Africa. Harry has been playing polo and drinking with friends at local pubs. The Prince is flying to Australia next month to begin his gap year, which will include a spell on a sheep farm. But the trip is marred by a row over his artwork which helped him achieve a B grade in his A-level. Aboriginal artists claim he “stole” their traditional lizard motif for his coursework. St James’s Palace said: “Like many artists Prince Harry was inspired by other people’s work.”

From Hello Magazine:

Prince Harry Faces Regimental Dilemma


22 AUGUST 2003
Speculation is rife over Prince Harry's future after press reports that he may not join the Welsh Guards after all.

The 18-year-old had been expected to choose the regiment of his confidant Mark Dyer, but it now seems he may opt for the Household Cavalry or the Queen's Company of the Grenadier Guards. The first option would afford Harry the chance to indulge his passion for polo, but the Windsors have strong links with the latter.

"Everyone has been saying that Harry will join a cavalry regiment, but don't count your chickens on that," said a source at the Grenadier Guards. "Don't forget there are strong family connections to the Queen's Company. Harry's grandfather Prince Philip is the regiment's colonel, and the Queen is the company commander."

While there is intense interest in which path the young Prince will follow, he still has some time to make up his mind. Harry is planning to take a gap year before beginning officer training at Sandhurst, and he doesn't have to choose a regiment until just before he graduates from the facility.
