Prince Harry Current Events 5: January-May 2005
Here's a new thread for news and pictures about Prince Harry. The old thread is here:

For anything relating to the Nazi Armband incident, please post on the "Prince Harry's Nazi Costume" thread, which can be found here:

Posts about Harry's Nazi costume on this thread will be moved to the other thread, since that topic is threatening to overwhelm the news about Harry at the moment.

Is P. Harry really going to join Sandhurst in May? The following article in News of the World seems to imply that he may further delay his entry to the academy:

EXCLUSIVE: Prince Harry reveals two new
injuries which could keep him out of the army

Harry's got 2
Nazi new injuries

By Clive Goodman

CROCKED Prince Harry is complaining of two new injuries which could keep him out of the army.

He will undergo a series of tests at a leading clinic tomorrow to try to get to the bottom of his latest medical problems.

The 20-year-old prince—who caused uproar by dressing as a Nazi soldier for a fancy dress party where a pal told a sick joke about the Queen—was due to start officer training at Sandhurst in May.

But he has complained of an "agonising" wrenched shoulder and an infection in one of his feet.

He is still being treated for a knee strain that delayed the original plan for him to join the Royal Military Academy this month after scraping through selection with the minimum two A levels — one at grade D. Harry's entire future in the forces could now be at stake.

"Sandhurst would accept one delay, but two and they'll start wondering how serious he is," said a friend.

Harry's foot is understood to have become infected after he gashed it badly during his Mozambique holiday with girlfriend Chelsy Davy.

"The strange thing about his injuries is they never seem to affect anything else he wants to do," said a pal.

"He can dance, ride, fish, ski and spend all day shooting. It's just Sandhurst he can't seem to manage." Harry is even expected to join his dad on a skiing holiday in April.

Last I heard (BBC news report, if memory serves), he was still going to Sandhurst in May. It's possible that's changed, but I think some of the senior royals will be applying pressure on him at this point.

The News of the World is a tabloid which isn't above making up stuff about the royals or printing out of date things as if they were new if those things will stir up a controversy and sell papers. Well, to be fair, most newspapers these days aren't above that sort of thing, but the tabloids tend to be worse than the broadsheets.

Wow Harry, why don't you just say you don't want to go already?

Is he still going to sandhurst?

Elspeth 01-23-2005 11:32 PM

Well, officially he is. I guess we'll have to wait until May and see if he really is. And if, once he's there, he manages to stick with it.

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-24-2005 05:48 PM

I've heard that he now has even more injuries.

I saw some picture of Chelsey, clearly out of her mind on alcohol, snogging some else at a party in South Africa during the week. I guess that's something else to add to Harry's misery.

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-28-2005 10:39 PM

Oh yes, I read an article about that. It was a friend of her brother. According to the article, she was getting back at Harry. Apparently, the same infamous night when Harry wore the Nazi costume, he was heavily flirting with some random girl.

Some people have too much spare time on their hands.

gaggleofcrazypeople 01-29-2005 10:13 PM

And are in need of real jobs.

Although I think Harry should be beat with a wet noodle for wearing that costume. Him claiming two more injuries is just bad news for him. Going to Sandhurst would give him a chance to learn discipline and get out of the public eye. Hopefully these don't hinder him from getting into Sandhurst.

How's gap year work? Isn't it supposed to be a year? It's like kids in bad neighborhood who don't have jobs and studies, they make troubles. Party is his job and study right now. It does not take a genius to figure it out.

gaggleofcrazypeople 02-01-2005 05:47 PM

Gap years are very popular in England.

Oh dear. When it rains it pours. Harry's girl seems to be taking his absence really hard:

Harry's girl goes to pot

CHELSY Davy, Prince Harry's Zimbabwean girlfriend, has been seen smoking cannabis at the island resort where they enjoyed a holiday together.

Journalists from Britain's Mail on Sunday saw her in a huddle with three friends passing around a joint late one night as they sat on a beach on Bazaruto Island in Mozambique.

Soon afterwards, a girl from the group was giggling uncontrollably in a bar and could hardly speak.

One of two young men who shared the joint with her and Chelsy sat with his head lolling on his chest. Chelsy, 19, stumbled across the beach to her bungalow chalet and was not seen again that night. "They all looked totally stoned. It must have been some strong stuff," said one onlooker.

The Mail on Sunday journalists had walked close to the group as they were looking out to sea and identified the smell of marijuana.

The friends had arrived from Zimbabwe a few days after Harry left for a family Christmas at Sandringham.

Images of Chelsy using drugs will upset Prince Charles, already worried about his younger son's rebellious behaviour and reckless group of friends.

Three years ago, he took Harry to Featherstone Lodge, a residential centre for drug users in South London, after discovering the young prince smoked cannabis and had been drinking heavily.

He believed the 20-year-old had learned his lesson, but the excesses on Harry's extended holiday with Chelsy give him further cause for concern.

The young lovers were first seen together in November at a ranch in Argentina, where Harry was reportedly spending some quiet time before enrolling at Sandhurst Military Academy – a move said to have been delayed by a knee injury. He then joined Chelsy at her parents' luxury apartment in a South African coastal resort and was seen larking around the pool and simulating African dances on the balcony.

The pair later flew to Bazaruto, where Chelsy's businessman father Charles owns fishing and other rights.

Harry was introduced to Charles, Chelsy's mother Beverly and other members of the family.

Paul Davy, Chelsy's uncle, told The Mail on Sunday the relationship was "very serious" and may lead to marriage.

Chelsy is obsessed with her relationship with Harry, daily checking her emails and the internet for any mention of it in newspapers and magazines. –The Mail on Sunday
