How so funny about Harry's hair getting cut a little bit too much.

According to tradition, umbrellas are carried but must not be unfurled, meaning the siblings were soon soaking wet as they walked the half-mile route. The grim weather did nothing to dampen the spirits of the royal soldiers, though, who joked with army pals and veterans before the start of the march.
It sounds like the princes had a fun day at the march.

We hear these stories frequently. I can't imagine that they would be signing up using their real names or anything close to it on these kinds of sites. Anyone can sign up using any name they want.

In fact because of the warnings the police in our area give about these kinds of sites, my teenagers and their friends don't use their real names or provide any factual information about where they live or go to school. They are also cautious about who they communicate with.

^I agree with you. He is a really private person so I cant imagine him doing that. I think its all facebooks work, trying to make good publicity.

The facebook account is gone now. So I guess we'll never know. It gave a lot of publicity to facebook for a few hours though.

They both look good in their bowler hats. Their matching ties, are they special ties for the Household Cavalry? All the men wore ties just like them?

About facebook, I doubt the princes use it even though many of their society are on it (for real) like Holly Branson, Guy Pelly, Harry Walsh.... I use facebook and I found many of their friends but I am not a friend of them so I can't say anymore about it (you can't see their profiles unless you are their friend). That is why a lot of the well-to-do people like facebook; their profiles are private and for viewing only to their chosen friends' list. It's a lot better for them than myspace.

The only "vicitms" here are the star-struck and gullible who will believe anything they see on the Internet.

Oh come on, did anybody actually thought for half a second that William would be looking for the next Queen of England through Facebook?

Maxima has some wit on her. I like that.
But yeah, I thought it was a hoax the first time I read it. Something about it seemed off to me.

Today's news:
Another one on the swimming and mountain rescue patronages.

The Sun Online - News: Prince Wills, hills and pools
Now they have to get their digs at William too over the non-sending of Harry to Iraq.

Quote:
PRINCES William and Harry should resign their commissions now...
Harry and William should immediately quit the army and return to their alternative career - nightclubbing.
Mirror.co.uk - News - Voice of the Mirror - SURRENDER ARMY ROLES
And last but not least, although most of this article was about Harry, I was interested in reading their description of William's squadron.

Quote:
He will now join his brother William in D Squadron of the Blues and Royals, a holding unit destined never to go to war. The squadron, which has far fewer men than his original A squadron, is made up of injured soldiers unfit to serve or those preparing to leave the regiment.
Makes it sound like the place where everyone is a misfit and has no real purpose and no place to go. How mentally refreshing that must be every day to hear that you are serving with the group of people who are unfit to serve and don't fit in anywhere else. I'll hope the writer just lacked the writing skills to correctly describe this squadron D.

Harry's new war role: looking after the injured | the Daily Mail

I guess that's all.

I understand some members are fascinated by Facebook, but as it was a hoax and didn't have anything to do with William, we should let the subject drop.

thanks,

They are soldiers recovering from injuries and those who would be leaving within the tour dates. They are well thought of and working with a purpose to their lives, continuing to train, trying to get fit to return to active duty and people who have already risked life and limb who are preparing to leave and take on the challenge of civilian life, certainly not misfits!
