Maybe that's the point.......Why should it matter just because he's living in a glass house? If folks don't like it that's their problem. Maybe that's why he wore what he wore.

I haven't seen it so I can't comment on that....but EVERY move of his is scrutinized...That's got to be tough. (Expecially when you consider his mum was killed trying to escape an overzealous papanazi ...er I mean papparazzi...)

There's nothing that will convince me the papanazi's were blameless in Diana's death.

Bearing that in mind do you think he gives a rats patutti what people think?

Hi,

For those not in the know, Harry turned up at a private party wearing an Afrika Korps uniform (fancy dress party had a desert theme) with a swastika armband.

It might just have been pretty funny but for the very unfortunate timing.

And, I agree to some extent with the intrusion; it was a private party after all and, presumably, some reporter crashed it.

Cheers,
Norris

Im not to bothered but I think people are upset because its the anniverary of the liberation of auschwitz in a week or so. He's just a teenager growing up but in the public eye and very high profile. They go mad in the papers over here for when he said he had a drink, cigarette and a joint. I thought that was normal for a teenager.

If Charles ever gets promoted to King I feel it will be a sad day for the UK, And yes I am a Brit.... he would be better off given a small copse so he can go talk to the trees.... BTW all you Brits have you ever noticed the familiarity between these two?

What we need is to be a proper constitutional monarchy which we are not. We merely have a set of leglialation governing our rights which can technically be removed. We also need to take the PM's rights which are given to him by the queen off him and not let anyone have em lol. You see dear old Blair can legally go to war whether its legal or if everyone in the entire country is against him. As he has the sole say in the matter and t he cannot be held accountable to the house of commons for any acts of war.

I met the Queen once, she's very short and had a big hat on. I almost walked into Prince Phillip on the way back to Cardiff Castle afterwards. He wasn't short and had lots of guys in black suits with little ear pieces round him, they scared me. He is ugly and has a dress sense from 1880.

Nah,

Even if he just wore it to upset the Press it was still a very badly thought out move. After all, he KNOWS that everything he does is being spied on by tabloid journo's and that it WILL hit the front pages. I sympathise with him for that, but he really should take on board the responsibilities of his privileged lifestyle.
With the 60th anniversary of the Auschwitz death-camp a week away, we have a member of the Royal family sporting an imitation of the symbol that stands for all the evil sh1t that went down just six decades ago.
Here in the UK we have laws against promoting racial hatred and any ordinary citizen would probably be fined or even gaoled .... yet this little pr1ck hides behind a weak apology and dodges back into his over-privileged background. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif
How did it go,I wonder? All out of Osama bin Laden costumes? Have to make do with this uniform with the fetching swastika armband? Well, anything to make the party go with a swing! The BNP - our own, odious fascist political party - will be loving the publicity and the seeming, tacit support it offers. On the other hand, the ethnic communities will be cringing for the same reasons.
But it seems like most people want to let it ride - think of his lovely mum, poor boy, blah, blah. Sure the Press push these things, but it's their job. Contrast that with the fate of German reporters who cricised the Nazi's in the 30's.
But none of this crosses the mind of our nitwit princeling......

Brando good reply...the bottom line is this:
He is SECOND in line to the throne after William. He IS a member of the ROYAL Family and whoever allowed him to appear ANYWHERE wearing a swastika as if it was innocent fun needs a severe kick in the butt. It's not a question of innocent teenagers out having fun, he is in the unfortunate position of being a LEADING Royal and in this climate where the BNP etc thrive, his wearing of a swastika WILL be taken as a nod and a wink in their direction. It really is a bit of a mess, and I'm positive heads WILL roll.

Do you know ANYTHING about the lineage of the Royal Family?? The House of Windsor came into being in 1917, when the name was adopted as the British Royal Family's official name by a proclamation of King George V, replacing the historic name of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha = GERMAN. It didn't go down well in WWI that the Royals were closely related to the Kaiser.... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Windsor
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Saxe-Coburg-Gotha

Prince Phillip:
Prince Philip is a grandson of Queen Victoria, and he is related to most of the current and former crowned heads of Europe, including seven czars.

The marriages of Prince Philip's sisters definitely strengthened the German aristocratic ties. During 1931-1932, Philip's four older sisters married as follows: Margarita to a Czech-Austrian prince named Gottfried von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a great-grandson of England's Queen Victoria; Theodora to Berthold, the margrave of Baden; Cecilia to Georg Donatus, grand duke of Hesse-by-Rhine, also a great-grandson of Queen Victoria; and, Sophie to Prince Christoph of Hesse.

Remember Queen Victoria's son Edward, later to become King Edward VII. His activities made Harry's escapade seem tame in comparison. Now, if Harry had any imagination, he would sneak into a girls college dormitory with a survival kit packed with appropriate gear for this type of mission. He would then appear two weeks later climbing down from a second story window on a rope made from bedsheets, the girls cheering him on all the while. The paparazzi could then take photos for all the world to see.
On second thought, if anyone looked like harry does... that person would be advised to bring a lot of cash to negotiate with. Hey, sometimes it IS good to be the prince!

AtorianPaladin,

You think he looks like a US Marine in the dress blue uniform????? Helloooooooo!!!!!
Did you SEE the photo? The only thing blue there is his blood.

I kind of feel sorry for the kid as far as having to act like royalty 24/7. But he knew what he was doing, even if it just was a statement of rebellion against having to live a life he didn't choose.

I'm an American, and don't understand the whole situation, but I've seen the movie "The Last Emporer" enough times to understand that royalty does not always "live like a king". Nonetheless the monarchy role is important to many people, if not a whole nation, and the boy needs to learn that others are more important than self.

Some of you guys really don't have a clue about monarchy and its role and responsibilities, or the effect seeing a member of the ROYAL FAMILY wearing a SWASTIKA, has on the British nation.
It really is a VERY serious matter and may actually help to tip the great british public into a querying of the whole role of the monarchy....there is a definite whiff of constitutional crisis about this one ESPECIALLY as the british press are baying for blood, most of them would love to see the royals dis-established.

If I do something foolish involving Nazi memorablia and alcohol the other half freezes me out for a couple of days and I get some funny looks when I next got to the pub but I don't end being called a tw*t by virtually everyone on the planet. Man, that would burn, I cringe just thinking what the poor sod must be going through. Not that I would really dress up as a Nazi, I feel dirty flying Luft.

And who could doubt, looking at his regal moniker, that there's a direct genetic link betwix Harry and Mad Duke Phil in there?

Hmmm, wasn`t going to comment here (somewhat pointless). But I would always cringe when some kid would pop up and say,"can I have an SS skin please, cos I think it looks cool!" I guess this is the same way our Prince chappie was thinking...

I mean let`s be honest, how many of these kids watch a documentary on the Third Reich, WWII or the Haulocaust? Do any of them read even one small book on it? Do they even listen to their elder`s warnings?

The greatest danger is of kids who get into these things and do not understand what it actually meant in reality. Then become adults thinking, "It wasn`t really so bad."

finished now, thanks.

Hi,

For those not in the know, Harry turned up at a private party wearing an Afrika Korps uniform (fancy dress party had a desert theme) with a swastika armband.

It might just have been pretty funny but for the very unfortunate timing.

And, I agree to some extent with the intrusion; it was a private party after all and, presumably, some reporter crashed it.

BTW guys....I don't know the source of that picture, but there is no reason why a guest at the party couldn't have taken it, after all everyone has mobile phones with cameras, or even has small compact digital cameras, it doesnt look particularly good quality and a small resolution camera would have been more than capable of taking it. I suspect whoever did get it will never have to work again... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

agree with Aimails statements, however, dont beleive his putting his point across in the best way, and could do with a little less aggression. I think what he's saying is that people tend to point the finger at Germans all being Nazi. This is what i have so share with you from my study of the subject. They was not. Hitler was born in Austria so if your going to point fingers at a country then you should include Austria too, (Austrians were known to be more Nazi supportive than Germans historically, Hitler was using the more vast resources of Germany rather than Austria). However to tarnish a whole country would be wrong because Nazi's were a political party and they wasnt neccessarily voted in. Another point to make is that if a group of people hold a gun to your head saying wear this armband or die, what would you do? do you think the average German citizen had an option in the matter? i think for the most they didnt. WW2 was a sad loss of many lives. Sad for both sides, and probably more so for the Germans who now have to live with amateur historians tarnishing them with the all Germans are Nazi's brush. Which is so wrong.

On a lighter note thats, a cool Harry skin tetra, lol. good to see some creative humour http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Well, as Einstein remarked, "The universe and stupidity are infinite". However, Harry is still a young lad, and like the majority of us, will learn many things in life the hard way.

Now I will dig in my heels and spit out my 2 cents worth on this BS, and I don't give a hoot who likes it or not. I have been quite interested in and read WW1 and WW2 history for most of my life. Over 120 million died in WW1, and 40 million in WW2 - give or take a million here or there - you get the picture. Death is death. If you die from a bullet, bomb, fire, hunger, or other untoward event, you are dead.

Jews suffered from direct targeting in WW2 and more than a million lost their lives. Howver, 20 million Russians lost their lives as well in WW2. Again, death is death, and the mechanism really doesn't matter when you lose your life.

I heard someone make a profound statement many years ago - at least in my books. Essentially, they suggested there were really only two kinds of people; those who forgive, and those who do not. It took a long time for me to figure out who was who in this regard, and it made a lot of sense. WW2 ended almost sixty years ago, and most countries in the world have forgiven its enemies and moved onward - some have not.

This thread reinforces the notion that there are really only two kinds of people.

I think it was a stupid idea from someone quite young (isn't he now 20, though?). But given who he is I think a personal apology is required. With the advantages of being a royal come responsibilities.
