Face of the Day

Prince Harry has been deployed to Afghanistan, this time as a WSO in an Apache:

The 27-year-old arrived in Camp Bastion in Helmand in the early hours of this morning, where he will be based for the duration of his tour with 622 Sqn, 3 Regiment Army Air Corps.

His role will be to kill insurgents as he operates the aircraft’s weapon systems, which include Hellfire missiles and a 30mm chain gun. He will also be expected to provide air cover on missions by special forces.

Heh, I love how he is called Captain Wales by the Army.

What a proper gentleman

Prince Harry was just being a proper gentleman:

Pictures of a naked Prince Harry bear-hugging a nude girl in his £5,000 a night Las Vegas hotel suite were reportedly taken as he tried to spare her blushes.

A witness told The Sun newspaper that the prince’s actions were gentlemanly, and that he was trying to protect the girl’s modesty from onlookers.

The prince was said to have had around two dozen people in his suite when the pictures were taken at 4am. They were first published by US website TMZ.

A witness told The Sun the prince “went over to be a gentleman” and told the girl “I will shield you, I will protect you, I won’t let them see you.”

Yes there is

The UK Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt, reckons there is no public interest in nude photos of Prince Harry in Las Vegas:

There was no public interest in the publication of photographs of Prince Harry nude in Las Vegas, the Culture Secretary has said.

Speaking to BBC News this morning, Mr Hunt said: “Personally I cannot see what the public interest was in publishing those.

“But we have a free press and I don’t think it is right for politicians to tell newspaper editors what they can and cannot publish. That must be a matter for the newspaper editors.

“I just hope that people won’t remember this, but they will remember the amazing good work that Prince Harry has done.”

There is enormous public interest in those photos. We all want to know how big his chopper is.
