The two of them looked remarkably happy.
My husband even noted it. He said look at how he looks at her. That boy is hooked.
I saw Harry get ready eyed at one point.
What's the obsession in seeing everything so negatively?

Re: "On the Up and Up" - This is exactly why they would apply the same rules to Harry - to perpetuate the myth that Harry is Charles' son.
I saw a great photo combo of Harry and James Hewitt here:
For comparison, Prince Charles' ear and teeth:
The rushing wind at Pentecost suggests the Spirit’s hidden power, giving the disciples the courage and strength to start preaching the Good News in a hostile world. The title ‘Holy Spirit’ also suggests God’s breath of life. Through the Holy Spirit we become alive in Christ, and share in the saving power of His death and resurrection.
The nature of the Spirit’s activity was not only revealed in the rushing wind, but also in the tongues of fire, which rested over the heads of the disciples. These obviously suggest the gift of eloquence, which would be necessary to preach the Good News to the whole world. The fire also suggests a source of light, which would illumine the way to salvation. In the power of the Spirit the disciples would burn with zeal as they carried out the mission Christ had given them just before He ascended to heaven.
It was most appropriate that the Holy Spirit should have been given on the Jewish feast of Pentecost. Originally this was a harvest festival, which later developed into the celebration of God’s giving the Law on Mt. Sinai, 50 days after he had freed His people from slavery in Egypt.
The Crown Estate belongs to the reigning monarch 'in right of The Crown', that is, it is owned by the monarch for the duration of their reign, by virtue of their accession to the throne. But it is not the private property of the monarch - it cannot be sold by the monarch, nor do revenues from it belong to the monarch.
The Government also does not own The Crown Estate. It is managed by an independent organisation - established by statute - headed by a Board (also known as The Crown Estate Commissioners), and the surplus revenue from the estate is paid each year to the Treasury for the benefit of the nation's finances.
Although the ownership of some property can be traced back to Edward the Confessor, the estate as a whole essentially dates from the time of the Norman Conquest.
In 1760, George III reached an agreement with the Government over the estate. The Crown Lands would be managed on behalf of the Government and the surplus revenue would go to the Treasury. In return the King would receive a fixed annual payment - what later became known as the Civil List.
Today, The Crown Estate operates under the auspices of the Crown Estate Act of 1961, which declares that the estate shall be managed by a Board who have a duty to maintain and enhance the value of the estate and the return obtained from it, but with due regard to the requirements of good management.
