    I love Harry

    He should be able to have fun like anyone else but it does make you wonder who the people were that he had surrounded himself with. I don't think his 'minders' should be dragged through the mud though! I'm sure security checks were done, but mobile phones were probably not considered harmless??

    Let's see... in no particular order.... Caught smoking pot at age 17. Photos of him dressed as a ****. Photos of him kissing a woman who was not his girlfriend. Bashed a couple of photographers. And now nude photos. Not exactly the kinds of things the royal family wants to be known for, and all things that could easily have been avoided by someone with a bit more restraint or common sense. Or someone with people whose job it is to make sure those things don't happen, or at least don't get photographed.

    And if this was 1992 or even 2002, I might agree that someone might think cell phone cameras are harmless, but this is 2012. Even my 5-year-old POS flip phone has a camera, and there are now all kinds of social media that allows those pics to be distributed almost immediately.

    Bashing the photographers is the only one that I would say that he was acting any differently than any other guy his age, and he wouldn't be bashing photographers if they would leave him alone! (not saying you should bash people who won't leave you alone, but I certainly get the temptation.) The rest of it (including dressing like a Na.zi for Halloween - people dress up as all sorts of "offensive" things for Halloween - ever seen a pregnant nun?) seems like typical slightly rebellious kid hijinks, and not something that people should get all worked up about. He didn't ask to be a member of the royal family. He didn't run for office, he wasn't elected, he doesn't owe anyone anything as far as I'm concerned. I just don't see how that equates to him needing to be "saved from himself." It's not like he's a heroin addict or something. LOL

    He's about to turn 28. 28! Surely he is old enough to and should be allowed to make his own decisions. It's not like Prince Charles was the best of role models in regards to not bringing negative attention to the royal family. I just can't help but think if Princess Di were still alive she would be proud of the young man her son has become. Because there is no reason not to be proud of him as a person. The few examples of living his life don't define who is as a man. He served on the front lines in the Afghan War. His charitable/humanitarian work has been recognized internationally. Surely he's doing at least a few things right.
