I was thinking of the latest news: Prince mocks gays and Asians in secret video

He does get away with a lot. I just think he's not a particularly intelligent person. He's no teenager so the guy must be quite immature. But come to think of it a lot of people say similar things (I've encountered it many times with taxi drivers) in private without the fear of being scrutinized by media.

What should be done to Harry Windsor?

Isn't he a Jehova Witness?
Ever since he joined that religion his music went down hill.
I remember the time where he didn't care about other people's criticism (like his Black Album).
Nowadays he doesn't have that edge anymore.

He is very strange and always has been. But he seems to have found some peace personally like so many music ans and stars as they get bored with the hype of celebrity and what it brings.

I believe you're thinking of the singer Prince. This is a different person. I think the link didn't work. Here it's again: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/jan/11

Another article on the same issue: http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2009/ja...ideo-pakistani

The Son of Prince Charles is not a JW

Thanks for posting the clarifying links.

Through my own kids, I happen to know a lot of kids in his age group in and out of the military. I'm happy to report they aren't as frantic to be politically correct as some people would like them to be. They are very verbal in saying it they way they see it. How wonderfully refreshing. For a long time I was afraid society was turning into a bunch of wheenies.

Just another instance proving how thin the veneer we call "civilization" really is.

Not saying he is right or wrong - but can you image being a public figure where every word that you mutter is scrutinized? Half the time - do we the public even care, especially when it is actors.

I sure question his ethics.

The difference between British princes and British actors are that actors usually do not become leaders of a nation.
