GIRL ABOUT TOWN: Is Harry set to emigrate Down Under? | Daily Mail Online

What's the bet that Abbot is paving the way for yet another English royal to get something they don't need or deserve at Australia's and Australian's expense? Looking for a cushy job down under is he?

Interesting numbers. 64 percent of people think Harry should have a regular job in addition to royal duties.

I doubt very much that Harry will be getting any job in Australia with or without Abbott's help. Why should he? His life's in Britain with his family.Harry will be serving on assignment for a few weeks, probably enjoying the climate and friendly Aussies and then will be off to Africa.

And you see what are the main charities he is doing. Aids and people (service man and woman) losing limbs.

I'd love to know how many people voted, was it a "real" poll or just a DF "click" job. Either way that should really read "Majority of those who voted" say Harry should get another ordinary job. This, say 64% of that poll, should be combined with his official duties.

But let's face it, Cressida Bonas used the celebrity of being Harry's "girlfriend" to further her career, while both Beatrice and Eugenie find it difficult to have an "ordinary" job in the UK, being the default "Royals" when everyone else is unavailable for "news/scandal/speculation".

So, just what job is Harry qualified for? Probably more than we think but you can bet your last dollar that if he did gain "ordinary employment" within months, if not weeks, he would be accused of "using the BRF" to further his "Career".

And, of course, thank you very much to the Daily Fail for once again making his mother his raison d'être. Harry is a mature man and has been exposed to and involved in charity work his entire life. That it should factor into his future is hardly surprising.

As to a second gap year? Well just because William had one doesn't mean Harry will. So long as he doesn't "disappear from view" as William did and their PR people keep everyone informed on what he is doing, it shouldn't be a problem.

The poll indicates, however, that what William is doing is likely exactly what the British people want him to do - combining his royal duties with an actual difficult job. I'd bet good money if you asked the public would you prefer him to do that or to become a full-time 'working' royal there would be no contest.

The vitriol from Australian posters towards Harry suggests to me he just shouldn't go. Doesn't seem he'll get much of a warm welcome anyway. Just stay at home Harry, why bother?

He will get a very warm welcome

There is a difference between him coming here at his own expense or that of the British government and spending a bit of time here to staying here permanently. I am not sure he would actually meet the immigration requirements to come here - no family, no usable skills (we don't really need helicopter pilots and he has no other skills - no trade and no university qualifications).


He is welcome for a holiday but not permanently or in any official capacity. For those roles we want Aussies and those committed to Australia - not those who actively campaign against Australia and Australian interests as Harry and his family do.

Just 2 months ago on this very thread Harry's supporters were saying the best thing for him was to stay in the Army. Harry was getting promoted to Major and eventually command the Household Cavalry. A soldier-prince.

My how things change. The same people have done a 180 and now the best thing for Harry is to leave the Army. It wasn't for him.

As many reporters on Twitter have pointed out this is a transitional year for Harry or as the tabloids like to say a gap year. Harry will undertake some occasional royal duties, volunteer, do some travelling and perhaps next year look for more permanent employment.

I hope he does get a job because Harry + too much time on his hands = disaster

Are there any reports or information on the Prince's current events/engagements in, say, the past week, or month? The things mentioned here seem to be way in the future...

In that case, I take it back. The entire BRF, not just Harry, no point visiting Australia again. You and your 'campaign' against Australia are clearly unwelcome.

I doubt very, very much Harry would want to emigrate to Australia anyway tbh. Too far away from everything.

I'm one who is disappointed to see him leaving the Army. I also share your concerns re Harry's future activities.

I hate to bring up a political discussion here, but are the Aussies becoming a bit like the Scots? Hold a referendum, decide to stay in the Union / keep the Queen as head of state. At that point, the matter should be over for a generation. Yet the endless carping just continues....

Ok, just my 2 cents here. I was surprised by the announcement of him leaving the army and the consequent "gap year"... I think it must be painful for him but I quite saw it coming after the "Invictus" games... I'm waiting to see what he is up next...

What buffles me is that (since there are some posts quoting "Harry's supporters" as something bad) while William was fiercely defensed when he was criticized for his gap years, Harry seems not allowed to be defended.

William's pr was pretty bad but this isn't an excuse. The path was the following: flying/part time job- ga year (everyone expecting him to be full time) and then.... back to flying! But hey, he was promptly defensed and excused:

he is youmg, he can spend time with his family, he is not king yet, he will do a lot fo other people instead of cutting ribbons.

Harry, on the other hand, cannot have the same excuses. But instead he can do nothing besides military life, someone even calling him a disaster!

Franky I would be more amaze at William for his gap year who will be King, than Harry who won't and will be quite irrelevant in the future of the monarchy. It really seems to me that some posters feel like doing their best to have a cat fight over William vs Harry... Just saying...

And yes, I compared the two of them because if someone was so desperate to defend William for his gap year, the same should be done for Harry. But for some William will always be the good guy, who cannot be blamed, while Harry is the black sheep.

Somtimes, I think some people are only jealous of Harry's increasing popularity. Rant over.

I defended William's gap year and am happy to defend Harry's. I see no need to trash Harry to make William look better, or vice versa. So long as the taxpayer is not directly funding them I, like I suspect the vast majority of my fellow countrymen and women, don't really care what they do day to day so long as it's vaguely useful.

William has been slaughtered, both in the media and these boards, for taking time to decide his next steps. Be in no doubt that he's had it easy. Yet, he is still voted the most popular member of the family on a regular basis, alternating with Harry and HM. The crisis over William was totally overblown and I have no doubt the crisis over Harry will be similarly overstated.
