Prince Harry news and pictures 6: Nov 2005 - Jan 2006
 
Here is a new thread for news and pictures of Prince Harry.

Here is the old thread:

So back to what was posted on the old thread. I kind of don't believe that.

I just ran into a Brit who said it was common knowledge in England that Harry is James Hewitt's son. I didn't know it was such a certainty but he said it was.

So what's the opinion in England? what the man on the street thinks?

Elspeth 11-18-2005 11:33 PM

Well, if the tabloid press keeps on about it, I assume that means the man in the street is going to believe it. That doesn't necessarily mean anything. Since Diana stopped giving the Mail an inside track to the royal family, it seems to have compensated by making things as sensational as possible, as has the Mirror. Now they don't have new Diana stories to make money with, they've got to find something.

People must be dumb to believe he is james hewitts son. He looks so much like Charles and Phillip its creapy sometimes.

No, I know that, Elspeth. I always find it curious though to hear how perception of people can really be different sometimes.

He seemed to like all the Royal Family, thought Diana and Charles were a mess, but liked them both, and liked Camilla too.

I was just shocked the way he said it, so nonchalantly, as if he were saying why are you really asking, everybody knows that.

Most of the people I know believe that he is Hewitts son, unless they release the DNA test results that were apparently done on him and people can be sure they are the actual results, the rumours and certainty (right or wrong) of a lot of the UK, will persist.
It wasn't helped by the programme Hewitt did recently.

Perhaps he's a relative of the couple a TRF member met who said that Prince William had "come out"?

LOL :D Warren

That's what I was thinking, skydragon. I didn't know they did actually do the DNA tests but it seems cruel to Harry if they have the proof to let the rumours persist.

If there indeed were DNA tests done as rumored, and if they were published/released, it's still likely that those who prefer to believe the alternate paternity rumors would simply claim that the tests/results were fixed or falsified.

Sadly the whole question of Harry's paternity will go on though, personally speaking, I do think he's Charles's son. Have you ever seen the sideways on portrait of a young Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor? Majesty magazine printed this particular image alongside one of Harry and he does share a similarity with Edward VIII as a young man, even down to both having a slightly upturned nose. Also, re. Harry's red hair (the reason so many think he's Hewitt's son?): I saw film footage in the early 90s of a young Harry at the British Grand Prix with his Spencer cousin. They were like twins as both had the Spencer red hair. They were so alike that one of the newspapers or magazines actually put Harry's name under a photo of the cousin.

Having said all this...James Hewitt was 'hypnotised' for a rather tacky British TV programme a few weeks ago. If I remember rightly wasn't it then said that, under hypnosis, Hewitt said his relationship with Diana started in 1982, not 1984 as was always claimed. So....the dates would add up. But.....I don't think any of us can trust Hewitt to be telling the truth...I don't even trust his subconscious! :D

For what it's worth Diana always told everyone who asked that Harry was definitely Charles's son. Sorry if I'm being naive but I do actually believe her.

Even if Diana did start her affair with Hewitt in 82 which I think has a good chance of being true. I dont think Diana would ever let herself become pregnant with another mans child to get at Charles or for whatever reason. William and Harry were planned I presume. The heir and the spare. I dont think Diana would have let herself get pregnant by James Hewitt. Plus, Harry looks like a Windsor.

Apparantly years ago, long before the hypnosis, Hewitt approach a publicist for advice on how to handle it, if the details of his affair starting in 81/82 ever got out. I havn't read Cliffords book (where he details this).
What made me think about the Hewitt programme was that after the hypnosis, he said that he was sticking to the dates that were 'public knowledge', as if to say, that it was not necessarily the truth.
We will never know the 'truth', as I said earlier, it would have to be proved that they were the actual results before everyone would believe them.
Knowing that people will allways speculate about his parentage, can't be nice for Harry, it is a terrible situation for a child to be put in and if DNA tests were done, the results should be released by the authorities. Charles is his dad to all intents and purposes, he has loved him, supported him through good times and bad and has always been there for him. They are the things that really matter, especially as he will not be the heir to the throne. All of this is IMO.

Yeah, selrahc4, that is true. I was just thinking of the vast majority that don't have an agenda either way and may just accept that Harry is Hewitt's son because that's all they hear. If the DNA tests were released, then at least Harry wouldn't be confronted with the suspicion with most everyone he meets-just the few people with their own agendas. Then he could just ignore or avoid them.

gaggleofcrazypeople 11-19-2005 11:31 PM

I had always heard that their marrige didn't go bad until after Harry was born. But a paternity test would help. Does anyone know how you could get acess to the blood types of Harry, Charles, Diana, and James? Because that could possibly solve the entire dilema.

Iluvbertie 11-19-2005 11:37 PM

Recently I saw a photo of a young Peter Philips. It is in black and white and at first I though I was looking at Harry.

In addition I have seen a painting of the entire Royal Family painted in 1977. In that painting there is a 13 year old Prince Edward - who did I see when I first glanced at the painting - Prince Harry.

In addition looking at photos of a young Prince Andrew of Greece (Philip's father) again I see Harry.

As much as I would like to believe that Diana would have had a child by someone other than Charles to spite him I don't believe that she did.

branchg 11-20-2005 12:19 AM

Harry is Charles' son. End of discussion.

Royal Fan 11-20-2005 01:19 AM

My thoughts exactly.:)

Just to play the devil's advocate.

Let's say Harry, Charles and Hewitt take the DNA test "to put the matter to rest" and satisfy our curiosity. And the result shows definitively that Hewitt is Harry's father. Should Harry be stripped of his HRH and his lifestyle (and all the money he inherited from the Queen Mother) and then be known as Harry Hewitt or Harry Spencer?

FYI, I think Harry is Prince Charles' son, although he, like William, has the good fortune to resemble the more photogenic of their parents, and I wish people would let this subject go. It causes more trouble than it is worth, and it probably bothers Harry quite a lot.
