Why would he think that a perfect stranger wouldn't sell him out if friends of friends have in the past?

i agree. i also feel that what was his friends doing

The fact remains that he should have better sense than this. He should know that even private get aways are not private. Something somehow is going to get out. I dont care what pecautuions are taken, its bound to happen. Its stupid to think he can do anything he wants without someone not taking advantage of the situation.

Just heard about the naked photos.... Wonder what Prince Phillip had to say? Oh, to be a fly on Palace walls!
With his illness, this is all the poor man needs!

His protection officers can only do so much though. Like his former RPO said, "If he chooses to bring a pretty blonde back to his room and she happens to get her camera or her phone out and takes quick snapshots then it would be almost impossible to prevent this.”

According to the Met commissioner, the RPO's aren't there to regulate his life.

He probably needs a good laugh! which he will do and then leave it to Charles to sort out.

Its Vegas mentality unfortunately. Money is the name of the game and it doesnt matter sometimes what you have to do to get it. This really sucks. He should have known better and his so called friends should have protected him, yeah,right. All in it was a HUGE mistake and total lack of good judgement. Im sure the people who are getting paid for these pictures are thinking Harry was an easy target and they are Im sure laughing all the way to the bank. As for the women, they got what they wanted. What a terrible situation to be in. I cant believe Harry is so gullable to think that people wont betray him if given the chance or does he do it on purpose? Is he wanting negative publicity? I would hope not. And as for being young? Hogwash. He knows better. He knows all eyes are on him. Come on Harry. Please.
Dramatic much?

Personally, I think Harry could've gone to Vegas with a few mates, say, 5 years ago and stayed more or less anonymous. Unfortunately for him, with the royal wedding, his tour of the Caribbean, the Jubilee and the Olympics, Harry is now much, much more well known abroad. All of these events were covered extensively in the US and elsewhere.

He's basically at the situation now whereby he can't trust anyone other than the very old friends whom he knows won't leak stories or pictures to the press for cash. That makes meeting new people, particularly women from outside his circle of friends, and building meaningful relationships with them almost impossible. I think that frustrates Harry who's clearly a very sociable, outgoing person, but he's just going to have to accept it.

No they are not. Harry has to regulate his own life, (again he is a grown man) which he seems to be incapable of doing.

I am sure more pics will surface. The tides have turned on "Willy's Winky" from a few years ago.

I think that's BS...every normal bodyguard type gets this done for stars of lesser caliber than Harry. And even if they refused, his friends should've been more aware and handled this better. But, of course, Harry should've used his brain. He has a Facebook, he knows the score. Nothing is private anymore.

I guess the Palace could buy them all off. Oh what a tangled web. Harry, Harry. I wish I could say he will learn something from this, but he won't.

The whole thing will obviously die off, but seeing him making a speech etc, I will just be thinking of him hiding is unmentionables for awhile lol.

Exactly. Not sure why this is so hard to understand. The palace should hire some Hollywood PR person. This would never have happened with a really good PR person. They would of got those dam cell phones etc off those people before anything happened.

As my friend says. Really Harry,Really lol. Come on Son

I am old enough to remember Princess Margaret's frolics in Mustique with a much younger lover and the uproar they caused, and I also remember a young and ohhh so handsome Prince Andrew(he looked like a film star back in the day-so much hotter than Harry, imo!) seeming to be in constant hot water.

Good observation Iluvbertie. This too shall pass!

Looks like Clarance House and Buckingham Palace will be working in over time to do some serious damage control. I hope that Prince Charles, William and The Queen all have a nice long chat with Harry.

There is nothing "wrong," on a moral or ethical level with blackout drinking or anonymous sex among consenting, non-committed adults. But it's disturbing to me that so many younger people think that drinking to excess is a great regular past time. It's a sign that something is remiss in their own lives if this is done on a regular basis.

As for Harry's exploits in Vegas, well, it appears from various message boards and comment sections that the Brits don't have an issue with a young man enjoying himself. I personally think that the "atta boy" attitude has a lot to do with Harry's youth, charisma and looks. (Had the Prince Andrew of today been caught in a similar position, I think the commentary would have been far, far different, and as for his daughters... shudder).

he problem however, is that at some point these very same posters are going to wonder why such very, very ordinary people are in such extraordinary positions, and they're going to wonder why such a very, very ordinary man who did not earn the position, is fit to represent them. What is so special or different about him? If Divine Right is well and truly dead (which, along with modern technology, allowed Harry's forefathers to do whatever they pleased), why are men like Harry in such extraordinary positions of privilege? He was not elected to his position, he did not earn it through sweat and tears. If monarchies are to continue in the 21st century the people in such extraordinary positions will have to earn it somehow; and it will have to be through living exemplary lives like the Queen.

Am I the only one who is doing the math? 1. Harry 2. The naked blonde 3. who is taking the picture? There is a third person taking pictures in the room of the two naked people. That suggests a threesome, no?
