Did Prince Harry party with hookers & a coke dealer in Las Vegas?

I really have to wonder if all of the speculation about Prince Harry’s “gigantic” scandal-to-come is just coming from my list of possible scandals. Not only did Radar report that Harry might have been in the room while cocaine was going around in his Las Vegas suite, now Radar claims that an actual coke dealer was probably partying in the suite too. And hookers. Did I bury the lead? Hookers were probably there too. Dude knows how to party, I’ll say that for him.

Hookers and a known cocaine dealer were in Prince Harry’s Las Vegas hotel room during his now infamous naked romp, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. This new bombshell brings the Royal family scandal to a new level amid Radar’s report that the Prince’s wild night was caught on tape and piggyback’s the eyewitness account of party-goers doing drugs in Harry’s Wynn Hotel & Casino suite.

“A really good friend of mine is a cocaine dealer and texted me from the hotel room while the party was happening and said, ‘Guess where I am?!?’” a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com. “Turns out he was in the Wynn suite with Harry, his pals and all those girls.”

RadarOnline.com has confirmed that at least one of the women partying in Harry’s suite has been known to prostitute and accept money and gifts for sexual favors.

“My friend won’t give up any of the details about what happened in that hotel suite, including whether or not Harry was doing coke, but he was definitely there,” the source concluded.

[From Radar]

I really don’t mean to sound crude or like I’m making a gross generalization about Las Vegas women, but I think there are probably a lot of women in Vegas who “have been known to prostitute and accept money and gifts for sexual favors.” Vegas seems to encourage that kind of thing as part of their “big-spender packages” – a prince (like Harry) would get a nice suite, a private club cabana, and of course the hotel would send over some “complimentary girls” for his enjoyment. And even if that’s not what happened here, it could be that some girls who sometimes escort just decided to party with a prince.

Also – Radar reports that Prince Charles is already “over” his youngest son’s scandal:

Prince Harry has been told to forget about publicly apologizing for his naked photo scandal by his dad Prince Charles, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. The 27-year-old ‘Party Prince,’ who planned on saying sorry for his Las Vegas hijinks has now been asked not to say anything in the hope the latest royal scandal blows over.

In a heart to heart with his son, Charles admitted he too got caught up in some embarrassing bad-boy behavior when he was the same age and that he accepts boys will be boys.

“Of all the royal family, Charles was the most accepting of Harry’s behavior,” a source revealed. “In his younger years he was just as much a playboy as Harry is now, so he’s more understanding when it comes to this sort of thing.”

Charles also believes that the sooner Harry joins his military unit in Afghanistan the sooner it will all be forgotten.

“While he told Harry to be a little more responsible, he didn’t chastise him because he didn’t think he did anything wrong,” the insider said. “Charles doesn’t believe there’s any need for a public apology and instead said to Harry he should go to Afghanistan as soon as he makes an appearance at the Paralympics and join his rank.

“The quicker he goes out there, the sooner this will all blow over,” the source said.

[From Radar]

Prince Charles is just thinking of himself – Charles was never really a “playboy”. He was in love with Camilla and they kept seeing each other even while she was married and before he even met Diana. That being said, Charles might have a point – most people in America and the UK seem to think Harry’s scandal is just a big “meh” in the grand scheme of things. Most people even seem to like him MORE now.

Meanwhile, today marks the 15th anniversary of Prince Diana’s death in Paris. Where were you? I still remember waking up and watching CNN. I remember everything about that week in which it felt like all of England stood still, mourning their princess. And the outpouring of grief from around the world… it was one of the most incredible moments I’ve ever lived through.

    “Boys will be boys” ? *puke*

    • Rice says:

      Right there with you Ruby. If this was a princess, the roof of Buckingham Palace would have blown off by now.

      • Me Too says:

        So true! So tired of the boys will be boys bull! The double standard lives.

      • andrea says:

        Well, whose fault would that be? Ours, the public’s. One of the female royals so much as wears an unusual hat and we all laugh and meme it to death. Personally, I could care less if this happened to Harry or Eugenie or Beatrice. They’re young and therefore bound to do something stupid. Having a lot of money and a life of privilege only multiplies the level of possible jackassery. For me, meh. Whatever. It’s not so much boys will be boys, but kids will be kids.

        By the way, I just have to comment that Charles WISHES he was as much of a playboy as Harry when he was young.

  2. DavidBowie says:

    I was on a train coming back from the U.S Open and people were talking about it. Everyone (including me) had tears in their eyes. It was surreal.

    • bluhare says:

      I was at home on Saturday evening when CNN broadcast that Diana had died. It was about 9:30pm Pacific time. It was the first (and last) time a public figure’s passing got to me. Stayed up all night and watched her funeral which was one of the most beautiful and saddest events ever.

      • Zigggy says:

        I was fairly young (William’s age) so I don’t remember exactly where I was when I first heard, but I remember what followed- the shock and the outpouring of grief.
        But what I remember most is the envelope left for her by the boys- the outside simply labeled “Mummy.”

    • Elizabeth says:

      I had gone home the night before and just relaxed with no TV or radio or anything. Then I got up early the next morning to walk my dog in the rain on Queen Street West in Toronto. As I rounded the corner at Spadina Avenue, I saw a newpaper & mag vendor there with his stuff under plastic cover. I looked over and saw Diana’s face with a headline saying she was dead. I didn’t even know about the accident from the night before. I was stunned.

    • Rice says:

      God I loved that woman, and I’m not ashamed to say it. I remember one of the boys wrote a note to her labeled “Mom” and placed it on her coffin. Damn near broke my heart because it made me think about how it would feel if I had lost my mom at such a young age.

      • bluhare says:

        It was the most heartbreaking part of her funeral seeing those flowers on top of her casket with just “mummy” on the card. They were from Harry.

        And the silence as her catafalque was pulled through the streets was eerie. Such a beautiful day and so quiet.

    • OriginalTiffany says:

      I totally remember. Just got home from work and was so sick and tired with my first pregnancy I laid on our couch and watched for about 2 days…between puking.

      • skuddles says:

        I remember it clearly too. I had just gotten home from a long day at work and was digging into my favorite Vietnemese food when the news flashed onto the tv screen. Although it didn’t say she was dead, just that she had been injured (and the driver killed) in a terrible accident in Paris. I flipped to CNN and watched live footage of the tunnel emergency rescue (well what you could see). The initial report was that she had a broken arm and possibly some other non-life threatening injuries – so it was a terrible blow to later learn she had died.

    • cmc says:

      I was about 12, watching Saturday Night Live with my brothers. The show was interrupted by breaking news, and I ran downstairs and woke my mom up. My mom and I cried.

      • lrm says:

        Mine’s random: I was at Pacifica Graduate Institute in santa barbara, doing a dream workshop….and someone called on a payphone, to their spouse [this was before cell phones were standard for everyone all the time],to say hello, and when they were talking they screamed out and told people in the hallway-

        After our break, the professor leading the seminar refocused the topic on Diana’s legacy and discussion of her as an archetype and effect on the psyche of the world…
        [hey, this is the institute where Joseph Campbell placed his archives....it's all archetypes and mythology].

        So, it was a befitting setting to learn of and grieve-right by the pacific ocean, in a tranquil estate. Random memory….

        Just like when Mandela was released, I was with one other ‘white person’-who was puerto rican/half american-in a bar in the caribbean-we stepped into the bar to see the footage live…..as it was the middle of the day, in fact we may have been the only females….
        Such specific memories….(:

        That photo of harry at the service in this post, is still heartbreaking; i sort of wish it was not still available for publication; seems so invasive even now….

      • Pandy says:

        I was watching SNL too. With my boyfriend – now husband. It was surreal. Those boys look gutted in that pic.

      • iseepinkelefants says:

        I was Harry’s age too (actually I’m a year younger?). But I remember seeing it. When you mentioned SNL that must have been what I was watching (it was a ritual in our house) and I remember just seeing footage of the tunnel, the guardrail, and that. For days they kept analyzing how that stupid guardrail was complicate in the death. For some reason that’s what I remember the most, them going over the hit point by point.

        I only watched snips of the funeral but Harry’s “mummy” card/letter was probably the thing that everyone remembers. It seemed cruel to make them walk behind. They were children who just lost their mum and yet they were put on display (no doubt for the monarchy’s sake because everyone had turned on it at the time).

        This Scottish guy I’ve talked to swears by his account of the accident. He said he’d just come home from the pub with some friends and he sat down and turned on the tv and was stunned by the news. He said at some point the BBC had gotten access to the hospital and he SWEARS that they must have swung the camera around or focused it on a room because he SWEARS he saw her lucid on a bed. Frankly I think he just had too many pints, but he’s so serious about the fact that the Scottish BBC footage from the night is proof that she was still alive. He says it was the middle of the night so not many people probably saw it but you would think someone in the world would have had a copy of it if it were true (I was after all one of those annoying people that recorded EVERYTHING just in case I ever come down with Alzheimer’s or something I guess. I don’t know it was a weird obsession in the vcr age).

      • CooCooCatchoo says:

        yep – watching SNL. I remember doing that when I heard the news, too. Then I called my mom, who said, “That’s not funny.”. She thought I was joking.

    • Shannon says:

      I was in college and home in bed. I remember flipping past CNN and seeing the ticker reading, “Princess Di dead at age 37″ (I think was the age). I remember hoping it was some sick joke, but it wasn’t.

      I watched the entire funeral with tears in my eyes.

      I will say when Steve Irwin died I was also broke up, but Princess Di’s death has lingered with me. I still get misty eyed when I see pictures of her.

      That last pic of the boys at the funeral….heart breaking.

    • Emily says:

      I was nine, and a friend’s dad told us when he picked us up from choir practice. I didn’t believe him until I heard it on the radio. It was such a nice day, I couldn’t believe she could’ve died when it was sunny.

  3. DavidBowie says:

    Oh, and, that’s advice coming from a guy that wanted to be his lover’s tampon. Yeah, ’nuff said.

  4. Jeje30 says:

    Why is this shocking considering the fact HE WAS IN VEGAS….come on .I would have been shocked to read he went to church and hung out with nuns . Seriously who cares let him have fun he owes nothing to no one.

  5. Aud says:

    Don’t all the rich kids party with hookers and coke dealers in Las Vegas?
    I really don’t care about the fallout with Harry or any of these royal turds. Not only are they overpaid, they’re paid under the pretext or idiotic idea that they are better than anyone else, when in reality, their genetic lineage features a level of interbreeding that is disturbing and manifests in their dumb behaviour.
    I’ve loathed Harry ever since he thought it was so hilarious to wear a Nazi uniform for a fancy dress party. That act alone show what type of person he is. In a recent TV interview/news spot, he even mentioned the word ‘colonies’ in relation to a recent trip to Africa. He makes me want to hurl…a heavy object at his head.

    • bettyrose says:

      For the most part, I agree with you, Aud, except for the coke thing. Sex is part of being human, and young single people – famous or not – have every right to enjoy that fact. But he’s a role model – whether or not he wants to be – so the drug use should be kept to private sessions in the highly sequestered world of aristocracy, not done with randoms in Vegas.

  6. abby says:

    alright, who doesn’t do stupid crazy whilin’ out shit in vegas?? especially at that age? sorry but this is all being blown so out of proportion. nobody got hurt or killed so what’s the fuss?? Dude Harry will grown up to be a fine man and make his country proud!

  7. KellyinSeattle says:

    I miss Di so much. The boys were so cute. WERE…they’re starting to look more like Charles’s side. Frump in ten years…but Diana, I want her back.

  8. maemay says:

    Daddy Warbucks must have smoothed things over…no pics, did’nt happen.

  9. Nev says:

    I was realizing my love for someone wasn’t gonna be…I opened the door to leave and there it was on the front page newpaper…ugh.

    I remember feeling numb and was in disbelief all the way home.

    I always seemed to see the footage of her/them leaving the hotel in that revolving door…she/they were so happy it seemed.

    RIP Diana

  10. HappyMom says:

    My husband and I were staying with family friends and I was newly pregnant. We watched the CNN coverage (god-remember when Tom cruise calledin?!) and then we went to bed. Our friend knocked on our door to say she’d died-and I cried and cried. Pregnancy hormones and it felt like the passing of my childhood-I’d idolized her-kept scrapbooks, had all the books, had the haircut. I realized later how unbalanced and pretty manipulative she was-but in my innocence I just loved her.

  11. Jaded says:

    He’s been doing the same thing back in the UK for years only he didn’t get caught because his security ensured there were no camera-phones. Just because you’re royal doesn’t mean you behave in a more mature and responsible manner. Quite the opposite I’m afraid.

    I wonder if it still would have happened if Diana were still alive? I think her influence would have kept him more on the straight and narrow.

    • freya says:

      it most likely wouldn’t have made a difference or maybe for the worse. Seen as she was an unbalanced, manipulative, hysterical b****. never understood all this idolising of her.

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      Part of me thinks Harry would be a little more grounded, BUT Harry was a little hell raiser when she was alive.

      About 5 years ago WE and Lifetime went on this crazy Diana week and they showed some of those private tapes from her speech lessons (really interesting viewing by the way if anyone is interested), and your watching Diana talk on a couch but Harry and William must be in the room and you just see Diana get frustrated and she shouts “Harry stop!” and then you hear Harry giggle and William pleads with him to stop (William was so serious even at that age). It’s the cutest thing. She’s so exasperated with him and it’s such a normal mummy reaction I guess that’s what made it stick with me.

      You could tell Harry gave Diana grief from the youngest age. It’s his nature I guess. He’s the wild child/more outgoing of the Royal Family (which actually makes him more endearing and explains why the public rallied around him after his scandal because you know anyone else would be flayed).

  12. Bobby the K says:

    …hookers & blow will get you every time Harry.

    Yes, i suppose every young rich person parties something like this in Vegas. But Harry is NOT every young rich person.

    Now we’re seeing photos of him from his Nazi party again, and whatever stupidity possessed him in the past. The palace must be slapping their collective forehead over giving him a prominent public role when he is clearly not ready, and maybe never really will be. Is there anyone else who can keep it together over there?

    And a very happy birthday to the awesome Van Morrison!

  13. berry says:

    I was staying over at friends house when I heard it on the news about Diana, I was 11 at the time and remember that I almost burst into tears, it was just so sad. Also I don’t mean to sound rude but it wasn’t just England that stood still that day it was pretty much the whole of the UK.

  14. Anon says:

    Prince Charles was most definitely a playboy, whether he had a steady girlfriend at the time or not.

  15. Anonny says:

    Please do a separate post on the 15th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death. Mixing these two stories (and their comments) seems like a dishonor to her memory.

  16. I'mSupposedToBeWorking says:

    That picture of the two brothers at her funeral is just so incredibly sad. I forgot how young they were. Harry’s heartbroken little face, and the way William is looking at him – like a protective older brother just guts me.

    It’s still hard to believe she’s dead. She was many things, but what I remember most about her was how very much she loved her sons.

  17. Lushus L. says:

    Rest in Peace Diana and Dodi

  18. Sam says:

    It was my 20th birthday when Diana died and i was leaving the next day to go to my second year of college. I am forever linked to her by this. Today is my 35th birthday and she was 36 when she died. I cannot believe how young she was. It was devestating and i remember watching all of the funeral footage. I will never forget that.

  19. c0ke says:

    no. he partied with librarian and a preacher! duh?! :)

  20. DemoCat827 says:

    I’ll always remember that day. I bought a green Dooney & Bourke knockoff on a Wichita street, and then my husband and I went to see the Lemmon/Matthau movie, “Out to Sea.” I was at the computer upstairs around 11:30 p.m. when my husband yelled, “Princess Di died!” Stunned, I headed downstairs to the TV, and I was glued to it for the next week. The summer of their marriage I was entrenched in a deep depression, and staying up all night to watch the wedding helped my mood. I always felt Diana and I would have been friends, had we ever met.

    As for Harry, I take a sterner view. He is getting too old for this sort of nonsense and should know better. I guess as someone who has never had more than 15 drinks in her whole life and has never smoked or taken any illegal drugs I’m a goody-goody.

  21. Genevieve says:

    I would be STUNNED if coke and a few paid sisters were NOT a part of the bargain in Las Vegas.

    He’s young, hot, a wildass AND a prince…in Las Vegas?

    Color me shocked. ;)

  22. kay says:

    I was standing in a bar with friends, and it flashed on the TV above us. The whole bar went quiet, and then you could hear people start to cry.
    We had a toast to her, to her life and all she accomplished.
    Outside was dark, people milling around, some crying, hugging. The out pouring of grief brought together strangers for one night, and it was unforgettable.

  23. Booboocita says:

    I was on vacation, visiting my parents. We had gone out to dinner, and when we came back, my stepdad turned on the TV and a pic of the tunnel and wreckage came up. My mom, who is slightly psychic (no kidding), said, “Oh my goodness — I’ll bet it’s Lady Di.” About fifteen minutes later, the news anchor confirmed it. Both my parents had quite an admiration for her, and they were both quite upset.

  24. angelic 20 says:

    Its radar online so I don’t trust a word they say, people who were playing strip billiards with him said he was not even drink forget about cocaine, they are writing all this without even watching the video and if this is what he was doing them how come one has bought it already? And why exactly a british newspaper will refuse to buy this because this is in public interest not naked photos.if this video actually evicted Murdoch will be all over it because he loves a scandal.this is just a stupid gossip site making stuff up without any proof and people taking their word for it.

  25. G says:

    Uh, I hate admitting how old I am, but Charles WAS a playboy in his day.

    BTW, I’m totally perplexed by the idea that Harry isn’t entitled to f*ck like the rest of us. And, like the rest of us, when “someone” sells nudes photos of us, that “someone” is a privacy violating dirtbag.

    • Elizabeth says:

      Charles was a “playboy” because of his title and money. It was not based on his (not good) looks or his charm. Doesn’t a real “playboy” actually have to have some charm or handsomeness or something? He had none of those and women wanted to sleep with him because of who his mother was. Yuck, no real playboy there as far as I’m concerned.

    • Emily says:

      Yes to all of this. Harry’s an adult, he’s not married or even in a serious relationship, and he was partying with other enthusiastically consenting adults. Why is anyone supposed to be scandalized? If there was cocaine involved, I suppose there’s a bit of a scandal there, but the cocaine angle looks like it was invented somewhere along the line by someone trying to make this into a scandal when it’s not.

      And yes, reprinting the pictures the gross people who sold him out took is vile. Just because Harry happens to be a public figure, that does not mean he consented to literally show his naked body and sex life to the entire world. Reprinting the photos is disgusting, as disgusting as it would be if someone did that to any of us. It’s too bad that he won’t sue.

      • Hmmm says:

        If he ran around naked in front of 25 people or more, and it’s no big deal, then why is it a big deal that the rest of the world sees this ‘no big deal’?

      • G says:

        It’s a big deal, because everyone, including Harry has the right not to have nude photos of themselves taken and sold to the press.

        When unauthorized nude photos of Erin Andrews were circulated in the internet a couple of years ago, she was rightly and widely thought to have been violated.

        The only difference here is that some feel entitled to judge the behavior of consenting adults because they have an axe to grind about the Royal family and celebrity perks. As if, that was Harry’s all fault.

        He was on his dime and his own time.

    • Elizabeth says:

      @ G
      Erin Andrew’s photos were taken through a remote camera while she was ironing her clothes in her hotel room. Erin was not playing strip billiards while drunk strangers walked around her room. She had a right to feel violated. I think Harry only has a right to feel stupid.

      • G says:

        So, it”s ok to sell nude pictures of a person in their room, where they have a normal expectation of privacy because he was cavorting sexually?

        Is it OK for me to take pictures of you partying and sell them to a tabloid because you weren’t ironing? And what about the woman in the photo? Did she consent?

  26. Stephanie says:

    Not defending Harry at all, but it’s well-known in psychiatric circles that “anniversary dates” hugely affect behavior of traumatized people. It’s possible that, sub-consciously, his behavior is in direct response the date of his mother’s death. It would also make sense for him to lash out in a manner that reflects badly on the family that treated his mother so badly.

  27. Reece says:

    I like how this story has gone from drunk naked billiards to coke, whores and dealers. Because naked billiards isn’t salacious enough to sell???
    Btw, prostitution IS legal in Nevada so if they were and what ever way they got there…*shrug*

    I’m sure it’s a sad day for the boys no matter where and what they’re up to today.

  28. jferber says:

    A moral arbiter Charles is not, being that his cheating and marital betrayal indirectly led to the death of Princess Diana. He also stated in a television program that his parents forced him to marry Diana and that he never loved her. Wow. A coward and a selfish prick. Great way to talk about his sons’ mother in a way that they would be sure to see it.Diana was a brood mare for the royal family. Surely, they ruined and prematurely ended her life after they cast her aside. So that’s why I can’t accept any moral authority from that a-hole. He doesn’t even believe he himself did anything wrong, so why would he chastise Harry?

    • LAK says:

      Your comment is so unfair in it’s accusation and re-writing of the events.

      Here is a link to an obituary, written by someone who knew Diana AND Charles, who was witness to the entire relationship from it’s inception to demise.

      http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/princess-dianas-life-and-death-obituary-1282386

      No where does he say that Charles never loved Diana or that She was a brood mare. THAT is public speculation based upon a book that Diana, herself came to regret.

      Plus a remark taken out of context in their engagement interview which has come to be given greater significance than the context in which it was given.

      Watch the interview again.

      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wg_fib2gQaU

      And for the record, Charles has NEVER said a bad word about Diana in public. Go back watch that interview you quote. Nothing about bad Diana.

      I understand that you love Diana but please, let’s not embellish the truth.

      • Mira says:

        @LAK – I still don’t know or understand the whole mess Diana’s personal life was. Some accuse her of being manipulative, hysteric and such. But didn’t she get treated shabbily by the family and Charles from the get go? She got married at 20, had William at 21 and wasn’t Charles back to seeing Camilla like an year after their marriage? That’s pretty harsh for a 21-year old. And why didn’t Charles marry Camilla instead?

      • LAK says:

        @Mira – Diana was hysterical and manipulative. Her own childhood nannies said the same, but i also think she was damaged by her upbringing, and wasn’t equipped to deal with the situation she found herself in.

        Charles himself was damaged and ill equipped to deal with the situation he found himself in. He comes from a family that isn’t touchy feelly nor do they discuss difficulties amongst themselves.

        Together they created a big ol’ mess.

        One thing you have to know is that Diana was an all or nothing person emotionally. If you disagreed with her, it meant that you hated her, so she would cut you off. And she would embellish the tale so that it seemed like you had done something huge. She did this to Charles, her family, her friends, her kids’ nannies etc. She really demanded so much emotionally from people and if they fell short in any way, she would back track and say that they never loved her at all and she would cut them off.

        The royal family within their limited emotional capability tried to help, but Diana always felt that the help wasn’t enough or even good enough. And so she painted them as a house of horrors.

        I think Charles emotionally checked out of the marriage after one too many of these episodes BUT he didn’t go back to Camilla until mid-80s. The problem though was that he was in contact with camilla on the honeymoon which caused Diana all kinds of anguish but when she asked him to cut off contact he did. He really never saw Camilla alone for about 4-5yrs after the wedding although she remained within the social circle. I think Diana became obsessed with Camilla to point that she imagined they were still in touch through out the marriage. When she came to tell the tale, Charles had never left Camilla even though she couldn’t really back up that assertion. I do believe there were 3 people in the marriage as she said, but mostly because she was obsessed with Camilla to point it became an issue long before it was an actuality.

        To be honest we can have an endless discussion about whether keepsakes from former lovers constitues cheating and if those lovers remain in your social circle but you never see then alone, or your spouse’ obsession keeps your lover in your thoughts……

        All of that said, Camilla and Charles should have been allowed to marry the first time they met. There are all kinds of reasons as to why, but chief amongst seems to be that she wasn’t a virgin, she had lots suitors and she didn’t want to wait for Charles. Charles himself dithered on the commitment issue and so history went a different way.

        I think Charles was easily influenced by his father and grandmother and the press. He had feelings for Diana, but everyone kept saying she was the perfect POW which appealed to his vanity, so he never thought beyond that to Diana as a person.

        Diana was guilty of the same. She loved POW but never thought beyond to Charles as a person.

        At the end of the day, she was an insecure 19 when they started dating to his worldly 31. They dated for exactly 6months during which time they met only 13 times. They had nothing what so ever in common. The marriage was doomed even without the ghost of Camilla.

      • Mira says:

        @LAK – Thanks a lot for taking time to write such a detailed response. I get the whole story now. It was a mistake to marry a 20-year old and the age difference seems to have really played a major role in the demise of their marriage. In a way it’s nice that William and Kate have known each other for almost a decade, took detours in between and then decided to marry. Diana and Charles were a royal mess! RIP Diana.

      • Shannon says:

        It always gets me when people say Diana was manipulative, hysterical, etc. She was a young, immature girl when she married. Young, immature girls act like that. It doesn’t mean their unbalanced. It means they are still maturing. However, I will say compounding her immaturity with a loveless, Royal marriage was a recipe for disaster.

        I have always hoped she truly found peace and contentment in her later life. It seems like she did.

      • LAK says:

        @Shannon – I don’t judge Diana just for her negative qualities. Was she manipulative? Yes. Was she hysterical? Yes.It doesn’t take away from her good qualities. A person isn’t all good or all bad.Mother Theresa, who died the same week but was completely overlooked, had good and bad qualities. Neither woman was a saint, but they left a very powerful legacy and that is what we all connect with.

    I am waiting to hear any legitimate reason for thinking Harry did anything wrong. He played a game naked with a bunch of other adults who were very happy to be naked with him. There was also probably sex — again, with happily consenting adults. Whoop de doo.

    The “scandal” here is that publications are reprinting photos of a person naked that he did not consent to being either taken or spread all over the world. That is despicable. And claiming it’s okay because Harry should have known better is victim-blaming bs.

  30. jferber says:

    And as for people protecting Harry’s privacy? That’s primarily his job by not engaging in highly embarrassing situations. The world is not required to change for Harry. If he’d reduce his stupid/reckless quotient, he’d be fine.

  31. Mare says:

    I was on a school trip in Paris for a week and we came back late on saturday evening. I remember we stopped on a petrol station on a highway and I saw magazines with Diana and Dodi on front pages, photos from their summer holiday. On sunday morning I woke up and heard it on the radio. It was a sad day.

  32. Jay says:

    I thought professionals generally didn’t kiss and tell? Bad for business. The fact that photos were leaked suggests they weren’t hookers.

    • maemay says:

      i think one of the partiers was a hooker…so out of the vegas randoms one just happend to be a hooker, which considering vegas is’nt hard to do.

    • angelic 20 says:

      I agree jay, the fact the photos were published means no hooker because they are discrete even if prostitution is legal. And who believes that a newspaper like sun or news of the world will not buy this video of him doing drugs and prostitutes because if he was involved in something illegal then royal family do not have any privacy claims or case as this behaviour is in public interest and people have a right to know . This is just tabloids not letting this go and how come radar knows this when no one even watched the video.it’s getting ridiculous, if you have proof show otherwise just shut the hell up.just because he got naked or paired with strangers that does not mean you can just write whatever you want toand it will be true.if this video exist then british media will never ever in a million years let it go especially Murdoch, he is desperate for a come back in England and this would have been his golden ticket and help him justify all the bull shit he had been doing for years now.

  33. Kat says:

    Prince Harry and that Snow White :)

  34. Ari says:

    I totally cried when I was watching the news that day that she had been killed. She was a rare person in this ENTIRE world to be found.

    As far as Harry is concerned, the man deserves a break. He is young, dumb and full of (come lol) okay maybe not so dumb but he is in the military, he’s seen his fair share I am sure.

    I don’t know. I have friends who act this way at 38 much less his age, its all relative, I guess.

  35. DB says:

    I really hope he snaps out of this. He’s putting himself in some potentially bad situations. Opens himself up to sexual assault/harassment claims and potential drug-related claims as well. People like to take advantage of people who could be embarrassed if things like this came out. Blackmail is an ugly possibility. Shame to his family is another. It’s just not something he should be doing.

    He’s rich enough that he could do things like this on his own terms with professional women behind closed doors in a secure environment. If he has to do things like this, that might be a better way.

    Unless getting caught is part of the thrill. If so, he needs some help if he wants to stay a royal. Otherwise he could renounce to spare his family the difficulty.

  36. Eleonor says:

    Charles can’t blame Harry, of course, because of his own scandals.
    I remember Diana’s death…my mum is a HUGE Dianalooney,at the time I used to read ton of gossipmagazines about Diana’s messy divorce. I saw the famous BBC interview post split, and every special about the funeral. And the funeral too.

  37. melbese says:

    He has been getting away with this kind of behavior for years. It’s just escalating, and it isn’t cute anymore. He is a kook – just the same as his mother was. The apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree.

  38. graze says:

    Honestly this is probably the first and last time I’ll comment on this.

    I’ve been reading nothing but the following, seemingly everywhere, about Harry lately:
    - He’s just being a guy, leave him alone.
    - He didn’t hurt anyone, leave him alone.
    - He’s a royal, it comes with the territory, leave him alone.
    - It’s Vegas, crazy shit happens in Vegas, leave him alone.
    - He’s in the military, leave him alone.
    - People don’t care about this kind of thing, stop overreacting and leave him alone.

    The whole response to this lacks a lot of nuance and context, to me. Looking at this incident, ALONE, by itself, is one thing. But looking at it in the context of other behavior (thinking of the Nazi thing here particularly) I think it’s okay to form opinions of PHG beyond “He’s hot” or “He’s awesome.”

    Can’t we be a little more complex? Can’t we admit that he’s hot, and seems like a generally nice and generous guy under a lot of family pressure – who can also do thoughtless, asshole-like things that demonstrate a lack of foresight or self-awareness at the least? Can’t we say, “Yes, he’s in an environment and lives a lifestyle where these actions and this behavior are acceptable, but I wish he set the bar a little higher?” Can’t we evaluate the problems he has in terms of something other than he’s a “scamp” or a “rascal”?

    Meh. I’m just surprised by how this has played out.

    • BeccaZ says:

      ITA.

      Harry seems like a charming guy with a lot of his mother’s charisma, but he might want to curtail this behavior in the next couple of years. Does he really want to turn into his uncle Andrew? I seriously doubt Diana would dismiss these antics if she were still alive. Harry is not a regular celebrity. He’s a representative of Britain. If he wants to do this sort of stuff, he might want to do it within the safe and discrete confines of his regular circle. If he wants to party with Vegas hookers, party girls/boys, drug dealers, why should they keep his secrets? They don’t owe him anything. Pretty naive.

      I do think there’s a whole lot of sexism involved here. Princess Beatrice wore a padded toilet seat for W&K’s wedding and took more heat than Harry over his naked, potentially drugged up with hookers romp. If this were Bea, she’d be crucified.

      • Carolyn says:

        YES to the Prince Andrew reference. Andrew is a laughing stock, a sad embarassing figure. His nickname for years has been Randy Andy.

        Ask any “European Royal” in their 20′s what they did last Fri/Sat night…what Harry seemingly did In Vegas would be what they do on a regular basis. Except they do it with other people of their class and no-one records it. Or if they do they don’t leak it to the press.

      • LAK says:

        @Beccaz – And yet whilst trying to defend B you insult her hat and by extension her…..

        @graze – unfortunately the lavel of debate these days has fallen to soundbites and very simplistic summation of a position where shades of grey absolutely can’t come into the discussion so Harry is either saint or sinner and nothing inbetween. Just how people debate in general.

    • Suze says:

      Graze, I think your evaluation of Harry and this whole stupid situation is spot on.

      But in the end it’s just gossip – and you have to admit a naked prince is good gossip. That’s why the story goes on and on in the press.

      Honestly, Harry can get naked in as many hotel rooms with as many people as he wants. No skin off my nose, I don’t care – but I do think he needs to get smarter about who he does it with. People will take photos and tell tales because he is famous. And we all love gossip – as evidenced by this site and the many like it. The market for gossip is enormous.

      I have a gut feeling Harry is a pretty good soldier. Is he still active in the armed forces? The Firm should let him soldier on. Good for the royal family and good for Harry.

      • flower says:

        Andrew was pretty good at the soldiering thing as well, if he had made the navy his career instead of leaving it for the lush life (at Fergies behest I believe)he may not have turned out so badly. He was at one time the charming, charismatic, most popular one in the family with big kudos because of his Falklands war heroics, alas it didn’t take long to get from Hero to Zero. The same thing could easily happen to Harry if he isn’t careful.

      • Suze says:

        Flower, I had forgotten about Andrew and his soldiering. You are right. Harry is on track to follow his uncle into louche irrelevance and that is a bad thing for Harry.

  39. nicensmiley says:

    God she was beautiful..

  40. Nancy says:

    Why should he apologize to me, you, or anyone else? Stupid.

  41. Jacq says:

    Look, with that kind of power & money, you’re going to get into that in Vegas – no apologies. That’s why it’s VEGAS. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. Do you think that came from the married father of three who lost $75 at the craps table? No. It came from a high-roller. Only the sluttiest, most well connected trick-turners in town were going to get set-up with that kind of access. And I know, from experience, that when you have enough cash & swing, you can get ANYTHING you ask for.

  42. pichounette says:

    A little off topic here but Camilla was mentioned. Doesn’t she have children from her first marriage? I have never seen them included in any events; as if they do not exist. I know they are not heirs and all that, but they shouldn’t be swept under the rug either.

    • LAK says:

      She has two. They attend events BUT they tend to either keep it lowkey or are cut out of the footage [picture & Video].

      And because they are low key, most people don’t know or don’t remember what they look like so don’t necessarily pick them out of pictures.

  43. erika says:

    I was there in London when Di passed, and watched the funeral weeks later. I felt ‘lucky’ in a sadly, tragic way, I mean, she was my idol, I connected with her in that although she was a ‘Princess’ she was also a regular ‘woman’ who allowed herself to be vulnerable, pained, and heartbroken.

    they’ll never be another Di…and that’s a good thing.

    For Harry, COME ON! ‘Meh meh meh’ get over it, how can you go to Vegas and NOT party w/ hookers, coke dealers…??? really!

    it’s VEGAS. come on, lay OFF the lad, he didn’t do any harm, millions of light years away from a Charlie Sheen incident. Lay OFF- the British truly are so uptight.

  44. dagsohyoumeandogs says:

    The first time I did blow in Vegas, I was at the Tropicana. I’ll never forget it. I remember walking outside and wondering why it was so sunny at 2am and why everyone was so sad (turns out that was because it was noon and I was high as sh-t).

    RIP Diana.

  45. Bess says:

    If Harry goes back to Afghantistan will the British army need to assign a very experienced pilot to watch out for him during missions?

    It seems like he would be a huge target and his presence would cause additional danger for the rest of his unit.

  46. flower says:

    I was living in London when the news of Diana’s death broke, everyone thought it was just a terrible mistake that it couldn’t be true and we stayed glued to the television for days, at first hoping that it the news bureaus had got it all wrong and then watching for days the whole aftermath unfurl, the seemingly uncaring royals continue their holiday , the Diana’s body return to the UK, everyone in the street silent or in tears , grief and anger in equal measure across the city. We lived about an hours walk from Kensington Palace so like everyone else took some flowers to lay at the palace gates, my abiding memory of those days is the huge mountain of flowers that appeared literally over night at the palace fence it was at least 6ft high and maybe 10ft deep and at least 50meters long . For days after when we opened the front windows of our flat you could smell the flowers 4kilometers away.

  47. Amy says:

    I was actually in France when it happened on vacation visiting my grandparents. Since the accident happened in Paris, it was HUGE in France. The next morning after it happened my mother told me Princess Diana had died. I was very young at the time (9 years old) and I remember on the plane ride back to New York everybody was reading newspapers and all there seemed to be were articles about Diana. I didn’t believe my mother at first because it just didn’t make sense. I think I was too young to comprehend the magnitude of her death but I was a huge fan of hers even at a young age.

  48. shannon says:

    I don’t get the BFD. If it was my son (or daughter), at that age, having proven to have a work ethic and kind heart, I probably would give a cautious pass. I would freak out over cocaine, though. Otherwise, huge MEH to me. It’s not like the man is the second coming of Charlie Sheen.

    Also, I was on the couch and sleepy, writing letters for my big son (who was 2 at the time). I remember not thinking she’d surely be okay. Woke up the next morning, turned on CNN, and was stunned. The pictures of William and Harry at her funeral break my heart still.

  49. Deeana says:

    I think I’ve read every book ever published about Diana and in addition some about other Royals – especially the Queen.

    Yes, Charles is reported to have had his “playboy years” – but nothing ever so public as this. There was another married woman, along with Camilla, prior to the arrival of Diana on the scene. If I remember correctly, the woman’s name was something like Kanga Tryon and she ended up committing suicide by jumping from the roof of a building.

    I’ve also read insinuations that Charles was not exclusive to either Diana or Camilla during the marriage. But I don’t recall any names being mentioned.

    Re: The night Diana died, as I remember it the initial announcements said she had been injured in a car accident. I stayed up glued to the TV. It was only afterwards, after several “unconfirmed reports of her death” that it became official.

    I was in Washington DC that following week and there was a huge amount of flowers outside the British Embassy there also. Over husband’s strong objection I insisted on a cab ride past the Embassy so I could see them.

    I’m sure Harry will be just fine. And that all guests who get near him will have cell phones checked from now on. I think the bodyguard who seems to like to party hearty with him on foreign trips will be reassigned.

  50. msw says:

    Partying with coke and hookers sounds like a good party.

  51. Christine says:

    Special thanks to @LAK and @flower for answers re- Diana on previous story.
    It would seem daughters of Earls only have one marketable strength, and that is the lineage. The Spencer lineage which appealed very much to the Windsors.
    As we’ve reached the 15th anniversary of Diana’s death, I believe her death wasn’t murder (people can survive car accidents), however I also believe it wasn’t a straightforward accident either. It was a warning.

    • LAK says:

      No one ever talks about the survivor of this accident, Trevor Rhys Jones.

      • Christine says:

        Rees-Jones wrote a book. In it he describes the fact he couldn’t recall anything once the car left the Ritz, except for one auto and a group of others on motorbikes following.
        He also describes the fact he can’t recall the speed of car (Mercedes) which ultimately crashed into the thirteenth pillar.
        He also says he suspects he survived due to the airbag.
        The lack of any memory before the crash may suggest the following:
        - something scared (PTSD memory loss unrelated to head injury memory loss) Rees-Jones prior to the crash
        -Rees-Jones knows the details leading up to crash but feels scared to disclose all events leading up to crash
        - or something else, we’ll never know

  52. Ginger says:

    kaiser I live in Vegas and work for a legal office…you are correct. There are plenty of prostitutes here from the lowest class to the highest. I’m going to assume that the ladies in his suite were the expensive kind.

  53. Carolyn says:

    Diana possibly would have survived if she had been wearing a seatbelt, as Trevor was.
