LOL, too funny Tyger !!!
You might go to Costa Del Sol or Ibiza or Mykonos or even Brighton if you want to see a really blow out party. Lots of drinking/dancing/partying/nudity. Great fun, although I do believe similar parties can even happen in several areas of the US (New Orleans has already been pointed out by American posters as a great place to party)

Agreed! This to me, is the real issue of the matter.

At least nine people shot at randomly in NY City - that's more important
Greece in economic meltdown - way more important to Europe
And if you want a royal story, Prince Philip is not attending the Paralympics opening ceremony.
It's not CULTURAL differences, it is mostly generational, although there are some younger Conservatives on this site. Thanks for pointing out there are more important things going on. Nekkid Harry has nothing to do with any of those things. Harry is amusement, laughable, helpless and hapless.

I agree, but this is a royal forum. And this is the biggest royal story of the week. And they were kinda scandalous pics. And we are talking about the guy who's third in line to the British throne. And I had to see these pictures while trying not to spit my morning coffee all over my dog, furniture and husband.

So, let's acknowledge that it's totally reasonable that lots of people would have an opinion...

Opinions are fine, as long as they don't tread all over mine.

And I think this is one of my problems with this whole thing. This, "he's only having fun" attitude only extends to the males. A female royal wouldn't be able to get away with it. I mean as it is, they can't even go to engagements without someone commenting on the length of their skirts or whether their blouse is too low.

Any one of us are free to take a timeout from this thread and go to others we consider more important.

I would say the shock is less moral and more about "common sense"...

Now that I agree with, particularly in regards to Beatrice and Eugenie. People would be unforgiving in all aspects.

He's done one, one more to go and he should be fine and dandy.

I am beginning to realize that some people still have quite Victorian notions about sexuality - something I don't encounter in my day to day life. I have relatives I rarely hear from on Facebook who are upset about this incident and in general they couldn't care less about royals. But something about sexuality gets people worked up, whereas the fact that someone is participating in (for example) a war, is perfectly fine with them.

I'll never understand it.

Some people are definitely looking at it this way, Zembia - and I too think he had a little glitch in that area, but that's why people go to Vegas!

From my point of view, it's possible to be overly concerned with common sense, and it's likely that the young royals have been expected to be very very sensible. It's natural to want to just go outside the bounds of common sense and have a party.

Now, if we hear he was having unsafe sex or a little royal baby shows up in Vegas next year, I will certainly doubt his common sense in general.

Exactly! Hit the nail on the head. I am Harry's generation, and that is exactly where I am at this. Just plain common sense.

Boris has his own take on the matter:

Well, I'm hoping that someone got/gets a picture of her to be splashed all over the internet and television and newspapers. It would be good to see what a true sleaze bag looks like.

How very true. People on here seem to really get upset when a members opinion doesn't agree with theirs. Quite immature, actually.

Thats a good one! Yes where are the pics of this brilliant up and coming starlett of Vegas? I would also love to see what she looks like. Im sure she is the talk of Vegas right now. Her friends are all envious because she was the "chosen one". Oooh, we should all be so lucky, dont you think?

Me thinks the chosen one isn't the one who made the photo's as she's in them. Perhaps this was a jealous friend???
