Heard a report on a London radio station this morning which claimed that Prince Harry was involved in a scuffle with photographers qafter leaving a nightclub in Piccadilly at 4am this morning. He allegedly put one of them up against a wall after being touched on the nose by one of thier cameras.

Full details to appear in the Evening Standard so they say.

Bit of a nightmare for Harry if this is true, where were his body guards? and had he had a skinfull?

You can tell he isn't at Sandhurst yet, otherwise it would have been a Bracknell nightclub.

Prince Harry was hit in the face with a camera in a scuffle outside a London nightclub on Wednesday night, royal officials said.
The prince, third in line to the British throne, also cut a photographer's lip after pushing a camera away, Clarence House said.

Prince Harry hit the headlines earlier this month after allegations that he cheated on his A-Level coursework.

In September, the royal passed entrance exams to Sandhurst military academy.

4 am. Good skills for a Wednesday. Still, when you only live down the road, you are at least spared the un insured, un licensed mini cab journey home.
You know the one; it looks like it failed even the Iraqi MOT and smells like a small selection of stoats are living in the boot...

I wonder what 'command appointment' he'll be given when he's CIVPOP on Terra Firma? The tramp?

He's just like his "dad" really. I seem to remember he got in a few rucks recently. Alledgedly...

"Most people will agree that even a royal, and a 20-year-old one at that, is entitled to a little bit of privacy and at three o'clock in the morning to be able to go home without having to worry about a photographer."

"Paparazzi should lose their human classification."
"The boy should be issued with a handgun and a license to kill these fecking scum."

Wrong - they're for the most part decent enough blokes trying to make a living, same as the rest of us. Press phots get paid a pittance on retainer, only making any dosh when they get an exclusive picture.
Would you rather the market was dominated by dodgy Frenchmen and Italians (who are feckin' gits) or by the UK press pack, who are a little more restrained in this area?
Like it or not - he's a public figure. Tough - it comes with the territory and this will have been explained to him again and again by his advisors.
The pictures were taken on a public street and if he clobbered one of them then he was in breach of the law - it showed in that his minders whisked him away rather than filling in the photographer...

Decent blokes or not there is nothing decent about lunging with a camera into a man's face at 3am while he goes about his private business WHOEVER HE IS. He may indeed be a public figure but he is a Royal Prince not a wanted criminal or a celebrity courting attention and this sort of behaviour by the press is a gross invasion of his privacy.Just because people buy the papers with these intrusive photo's in them does not make it right. Enough is enough I say.

Enough is most definately enough, those camera-wielding vultures would follow him into the cludgie in order to get one of him having a dump, if they thought they'd get away with it.

Anyone got any more int on which Regiment might be lucky enough to get the ginger ninja when he's spat out of Sandhurst. I feel sorry for who ever gets him in his Company/Squadron. Not because of the nause of the bodyguards, paparazzi and constant phone calls from Daddy but because you would have to put up with the smell of a multi-storey car park stair well in the lines.

That would include those that turn up outside some grieving sod's house to ask them - or their neighbours - "how they feel"? So they can film it for the six o'clock news?

I wonder what proportion of tabloid journos and associated photographers have the decency to occasionally back off, or whether they excuse it to themselves under the heading of "I was only following orders (from my editor)" / "the public want the pictures/story so they can sympathise".

Welsh Guards presumably? I suppose Para Regt is an outside possibility...

Bu-u-u-ll-shite! Decent enough blokes my arrse; UK papparazzi are at least as intrusive, and then some, as the Frogs and Dagoes. Remember that France has effective privacy laws these days. These 'people' are maggots: Harry should have shoved the camera up that photographers ********, zoom lens and all. :x
