I fear that Harry - after all the salacious drooling has run it's course for those unused to seeing such things - has made a bit of a spectacle of himself. There is a fine line between the 'generous laugh with' (wink-wink-nudge-nudge) and being a laughing-stock. The man is not new to the celebrity game - this stuff is done as a matter of course - that he should be caught-out like this suggests he wanted to be caught - or doesn't care. I wonder why.

Excuse me but is that your interpretation of " party a bit" ? Really? So because he is shipping out or whatever it is he is doing its o.k. for him to just go mental and act like a lunatic? Sorry but I dont see it as a a " bit" of partying, that was all out doing it huge! And as for dear Arthur his friend, who is he to call the girl despicable? Go look in the mirror buddy. This is meant for PrincessKaimi by the way.

I know this isn't addressed to me, but IMO, getting drunk and playing strip poker (or billiards, whatever) hardly qualifies as "going mental and acting like a lunatic." Admittedly, it's not the sort of thing I would engage in, but it doesn't appear that anything illegal is going on. Seems like a kind of typical college-ish party to me (except in a nicer setting and with Harry of course being a little older than that).

You know, if I hadn't seen the pics of Harry after the fact, I might of wondered if there was not something deeper going on here, but I really don't think there is. It is what it is.

I'm sure Harry just did what thousands of young men do in 'Sin City' and I don't think it will be the end of the British monarchy. He's not the first young royal to show lack of judgement in a precarious situation, nor will he be the last. Actually what really worries me in this case is that his protection officers - I believe they were there? - apparently did little to do the thinking for him! Collecting cameras and mobile phones would have been a good start. Then again .. the logistics of a security line for a group of alcohol fuelled young people may not be the easiest thing to negotiate !

I remember Prince Andrew during his "Randy Andy" heydey in the early to mid-80's being involved in one scandal after another...some bimbo bragged to a tabloid about how they had made love in one of the Queen's rooms and then helped themselves to her chocolates and even jumped up and down on Mummy's bed!

Shortly after William's birth there was an uproar over Andrew being spotted in a kinky London nightclub called "School Dinners" where large breasted waitresses scantily clad as uber sexy school marms carried around paddles and whips...and would beat patrons who didn't eat all their food and clean their plates ("Misbehave and you'll feel the pain" was the establishment's motto)

The story was the rage Stateside for days...made People Mag and the Today Show. There was the usual tsk tsk'ing about what an embarrassment and a disgrace Andrew was bringing on the Crown. But then he went off to war and distinguished himself in the Falklands and all was forgiven.

I suspect it will be the same with Prince Harry...in the broader scope of Brit Royal Family missteps I just don't see this one being any worse.

Pretty much. It was a small party, a couple of mates, a couple of girls, a few drinks and some party games. Certainly not a huge party, just a few people having a good time.

What´s the point in saying this was nothing and they were just having fun? wasn´t he trowing up at a bar some weeks ago? What do you need the guy in hospital or something really serious to happen to him? I hope his family is more concerned about him and not the image of the monarchy as some here,w ho are more or less denying reality. Btw, he´s been partying for the last 15 days, he watched the Olimpics for 15 days, it makes a month. And he is supposed to be a soldier? What a joke. I hope they don´t send him to Afganistan to clean his image.

It is quite irresponsible for Harry to have acted this way.

He is 28 next month and not a child. To invited 25 people that he just met into his hotel room is stupid.

He was behaving like a total a**, during his stay in LasVegas. After playing strip billiards, he went into the casino & threatened to beat up the dealer if he lost. (He had been drunk for at least 5 hours by that time.)

Having fun is one thing but being cocky while drunk is a poor representation of the royal family or any family.

The Queen’s Jubilee year is ruined by his childish behavior.

His grandfather was in the hospital while all this was going on.

Does he even think or care about anyone but himself?

I’ve been to Vegas several times & I’ve never seen behavior like that.

Had he not been Prince Harry they would have kicked him out.

Prince Charles should not be dealing with this mess. Harry is an adult & he should fix his own mess.

If he really did threaten to beat up anyone, dealer or fellow player, while drunk or sober, then he has some serious issues. Enough excuses already! I think Harry's a little too comfortable and happy with the fact that there are so many who are willing to defend him and make sure the mess is cleaned up. He'll never learn if someone, whether a family member or a commanding officer doesn't put forth some sort of consequence. He's being babied; plain and simple.

I'm disappointed by Prince Harry, as I think he's old enough to have more discretion than this. On the other hand, I'm a little surprised to see how little people care. I was listening to a discussion of Harry's antics on a radio call-in show the other day, and some people were actually congratulating him.

It made me realize how much times have changed...I can't imagine that callers back in the 1980s would have just brushed off Prince Andrew if he'd been caught partying naked. And I certainly can't imagine the Duke of Edinburgh getting away with something like this when he was Harry's age...actually, when Prince Philip was almost 28, he was married with a son.

If people don't hold members of the royal family to a higher standard than the general public anymore, I don't think it's a very good omen for the future of the British monarchy.

I am not making excuses for him...even though I think the incident has been overblown.

But I am 100% sure that he was not being serious when he said he would beat up the dealer if he lost...he is has never shown the slightest tendency toward being aggressive or violent!

BBC incident was from 2004 and the reporter in the JustJared article actually speaks out and says the push wasn't aggressive and if Henry hadn't been drinking he would have kept his balance and nothing would have occurred.

The Queen's jubilee year has not been ruined at all, it's very sad if you think one incident can dent what happened over the summer.

The Henry photos were taken in a private hotel room, how exactly would he have been kicked out when management had no idea what he was doing? Same goes for all hotel guests, they could be doing anything but they won't get kicked out for it.

Exactly what mess is Henry in for Charles to fix? He hasn't broken anything, nor stolen anything or got into trouble with the police. He's had pictures taken of him with or without his knowledge we'll never know and they've surfaced in the papers. What exactly is Charles going to do about that? Henry can't do anything either?

The palace is doing and saying nothing, which is the best tactic. When William and Catherine go abroad in 3 weeks time, they'll be the headlines.

Today's sun newspaper headline is that Katherine Jenkins had an affair with David Beckham.

Actually Henry was out of the UK for just over a week, flying out for Sam Bransons birthday on the 13th and returning on the 21st, apparently. He was not at the Olympics for all 15, he did not attend events all throughout each day. I repeat that Henry is allowed 38 days+ a year for holiday.

re the 2004 incident:

Quote:
The paparazzi photographer involved, Chris Uncle, said Harry had "deliberately lashed out".
Mr Uncle, 24, told the Evening Standard newspaper: "Prince Harry looked like he was inside the car and we were all still taking pictures.

Witnesses said Prince Harry pushed the photographer

"Then suddenly he burst out of the car and lunged towards me as I was still taking pictures. He lashed out and then deliberately pushed my camera into my face." The photographer claimed that royal bodyguards dragged the prince away.
A witness, another press photographer Charlie Pycraft, told BBC News 24 that the prince had lunged at Mr Uncle.
"He was half-way getting into the back of the car when he suddenly reacted and lunged at him and grabbed his camera and pushed him against the wall."
He said Prince Harry was restrained by his bodyguard and two doormen from the nigh
Who knows for sure re the two previous incidents.......no matter what booze and Harry sure isn't a good combination.

He would have been kicked out because:

He threatened to beat up the dealer if he lost. (Las Vegas police would have been there in within minutes had it not been Prince Harry and he would still be in jail.)

He was already drunk before he went back into his room and came down later even more intoxicated.

What you do in your room is one thing but on the casino floor or in the night club can get you kicked out real quickly.

He may have threatened to beat up the dealer, nobody knows that's true. Las Vegas Police throw people out for a drunken threat? Seriously? Yet they lax on things that a really important.

Also, it's Vegas, if you're not drunk it's no fun. I don't see how he's going to be thrown out for doing something everyone does.
