Here are some photos of Prince Harry’s arrival in Australia yesterday. He’s going to be there for weeks during a military assignment and the UK papers are making a big deal about how he’s not going to be in England for the birth of his new niece or nephew. While Harry adores children, it’s not like he’s got a reputation for being in love with newborns. He didn’t spend that much time with Prince George when George was just days and weeks old, and we really don’t know how much Harry even sees of his nephew nowadays (my guess is not that much). My point? I doubt Harry cares that much about missing the birth of the next kid that will bump Harry down the line of succession.
Harry was well-received in Australia and he looked very dashing in his uniform. He spent about 20 minutes shaking hands and taking photos with fans but at some point during the rope line, Harry admonished some selfie-takers!
Prince Harry has arrived in Australia and has brought some sage advice with him. The handsome royal greeted hundreds of fans for about 20 minutes as he arrived to report for duty with the Australian army, and one lucky teenage well-wisher got to chat with him while braving the rain. But Prince William’s younger brother advised the admirer to stop the selfies LOL.
“Seriously, you need to get out of it. I know you’re young, but selfies are bad,” Australian television network Nine recorded Harry as the crowd laughed.
E! News also points out that the Queen does not care for the selfie trend. I understand it in the Queen’s case – I mean, she’s the Queen! She’s meant to be portrayed in oil paintings, not iPhone selfies. But Harry is younger, wilder, more fun. He’s been photographed naked except for a pool cue. Surely he’s down with the selfie trend? Guess not.
Last thing – here’s Harry giggling and moaning as he takes a joyride in a Spitfire. It was for charity! Or something.
