The PR people and spin doctors who are charged with the gargantuan task of presenting the halfwit prince; Captain Harry as a young man around whom they can create a believable myth are once again in despair. Their latest wheeze following his most recent portrayal as a brave young patriotic combatant is to once again show us his ordinary side, his ordinary guy, man of the people persona if you like. They must surely be reaching the point where they have to pack it in. Today he appears clad in fatigues joshing with the ordinary chaps with whom he will; it is inferred risk his life. This is a rerun of their attempt to show us the heroic Prince Harry fighting in the desert against the horrid Johnny Foreigner an episode which quickly and predictably descended into lies and farce when it was discovered that he never got closer than 6 miles to the actual combat zone and he was at all times ensconced in a heavily fortified concrete fortress. In addition to which he never spent a second without his personal body guard of 6 highly trained combat ready troops.
In today's pictures he has typically forgotten to remove his wrist watch before throwing on the combat fatigues to pose with the squaddies whom someone has volunteered to have their picture taken with their new chum. I'm sure that all his chums in the unit he will be in will be proud of the fact that Soldiers serving in the British Army are issued with watches like the one that Harry is displaying on his limp wrist. The watch? what that old thing? It's a Rolex Explorer 11 – a snip at between £4,000 to £15,000, It'll all be over by Christmas right?
