Thoughts of a middle aged man…..17 September 2012

Normally I would wait and write tonight but as today is my day off and I can foresee nothing exciting happening I thought I would indulge myself a little early.

I make no bones about the fact that I am a one-eyed Royalist and the current generation of the British Royal Family are all very interesting people, royal voyeurism aside the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry are all excellent ambassadors for the Royal Family, and indeed for the United Kingdom,  and do wonderful work for their charities.

Let’s take Prince Harry, nude photo scandals aside as I have already voiced my opinion on that, not only has he taken up where his mother Diana left off, but he is on active service in one of the most dangerous countries on Earth. I am not trying to single him out as the macho prince, but having lost so many of our own diggers we know how dangerous the mission is Afghanistan is, you have to take your hats off to this young man, I am sure the Royal Family could have had him released from this mission somehow were it not for his own determination.

There has also been some criticism that Prince William is not fulfilling his role as a Royal Prince, what a load of rubbish, remember he is also on active service as a search and rescue helicopter pilot, and has been involved in many emergency situations. What do you think should come first, his royal duties or his military service. I think he is doing an admirable job of combining both.

Now for the latest Royal scandal involving the Duchess of Cambridge, a vivacious, beautiful young woman who has not put a foot wrong since marrying Prince William. Is she not entitled to her own privacy, she was not standing at her balcony window ala Lara Bingle for all the world to see, (how I hate to even put Lara Bingle in the same sentence as the Princess), this photographer was a great distance away, whatever happened to an expectation of privacy.

I am not surprised the Italians are leading the way with this, the country that has had more governments than I have had hot dinners, a Prime Minister involved in a sex scandal, and they once elected a porn star to parliament. Say no more. I hope the Royal Family sues the pants off the lot of them.

Thank you for reading.
