Prince Harry’s Wild Vegas Adventures

HERE’S A PIECE OF SHOCKING NEWS: Prince Harry likes to party and so do most 20 and 30 year olds. But his late night revelries are scrutinized more closely than everyone because he is a member of the royal family.

So it was not surprising to hear the outrage and anger emanating from England, when Prince Harry was caught on video challenging USA gold medal winner, Ryan Lochte, to a swimming race in the middle of a giant pool party, and subsequently photographed in the nude hanging out with women in his hotel room. I guess the old dictum that “whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas” doesn’t apply in the Facebook and Twitter age.

While his behavior isn’t abnormal for someone his age, and his family should take comfort in knowing this, he is deserving of the criticism leveled at him. First, part of the English taxpayer money is used to provide for his security detail. I can’t imagine that the British are eager to subsidize Prince Harry’s wild forays into the Las Vegas nightlife. More importantly, though, Harry’s behavior reflects poorly on his family. Being part of the royal family comes with certain expectations and responsibilities. Because of the family he was born into, Prince Harry can’t simply act like ‘one of the boys’ if he isn’t treated like one of them.
