Nothing against any of the royals personally, but is anybody getting tired of the "Windsor" media-control?
Take Prince Harry, probably the most likeable royal male, at least according to the press propaganda.
I have some friends and family (mostly female) who go into vicious motherhood protection mode whenever Harry has another laddish scandal.
The poor lad - he's just a young man in the spotlight who wants to cut loose, and just because he's a Prince he shouldn't be judged.
So goes the tongue-lashing from the ladies whenever Harry is caught in a pickle (or perhaps, rather pickled).
The latest scandal included pictures of a naked Harry frolicking in Las Vegas, but one could probably compile a list of similar incidents.
All of them were quite macho and minor transgressions, where the public sympathy swamped any criticism.
And then come the pictures of Harry in uniform, apparently going to Afghanistan.
Seemingly he was there about 4 years ago, but his service was apparently cut short because the press broke the silence of his service, and thus
That same press took some great shots of him however, before he was whisked away to "safety".
Now we see the same stuff again.
Not to question his achievements, but doesn't this all smack of propaganda?
It seems like such a forced way to put a human face on the British royals.
The "wild Prince" with his masculine derring-do and minor transgressions.
Even the most common and pedestrian people could relate to that.
For a family of what David Icke and other conspiracy theorists essentially expose as (Saxe-Coburg Gotha) parasites positioned by birth, he does
deflect this quite successfully.
A naked drunken romp this week - and off to fight with troops as just another hot-blooded male a week later.
I mean really, isn't that formula getting a bit stale?
