This is a charity that is a partner of those in the Royal Foundation of the Cambridges and Harry. What a great place Tedworth House seems to be. Beekeeping, working at creative skills in the open air, like building the Iron Age house together, it all assists these ex servicemen. This is a terrific cause and I'm glad Harry's giving it some publicity.

Prince Harry runs with homeless youngsters in London
Prince Harry has been turning heads in his running gear - as he went for a jog with a group of young homeless people.
He donned tights, shorts and trainers to pound the pavements in Willesden Green, north London, for a 17-minute run.
The royal drew double-takes from motorists as he stepped out with young people and volunteers from the Running Charity.
The charity helps young people develop life skills through sport.

Great that Harry did three separate engagements in the north west of England today. This area doesn't get many Royal visitors and it's good to see that people turned out to see him. Harry interacted very well with people at his engagements and really listened to what they had to say. He's superb at public engagements, interested and enthusiastic, jokey when he needs to be and empathetic with those he talks to who need to be heard.

Prince Harry talked cars, not giving upon your dreams and the perils of social media on a school visit today.
In fact there was barely a subject the chatty royal didn't touch upon as he dropped into Hamilton Community College in Leicester.
Unfortunately the only topic not on his lips was that of his girlfriend Meghan Markle - although her touch seemed to be evident in his sharp jacket, trousers and shoes, all in varying shades of grey.
The 32-year-old prince, who arrived by train for a day of engagements in the city, was at the school to learn more about the personal development courses it offers for students.

Oh, right, tell the kids it will get better and all is well.  Is he for real these days, appears he has lost his marbles big time since he took up with the lying, deceitful murk marble.  Ridiculous thing to say to a kid who has just lost a parent.  Here he is, bleating on about still missing is own mother, and still grieving, etc etc etc, and he tells a kid "it will get better". Didn´t get better for him did it, or are his recent "revelations" a sympathy vote to try and get some popularity back. Sorry to sound harsh, I feel so very badly for the bereaved children, and mean no offence to them, not one bit, but haza, dear me, he is sinking as low as bill medd these days.

Post by: YooperModerator on April 30, 2017, 09:17:53 pm
Speaking as someone on the far too many receiving ends of grieving, the one person in the royal family who did this the best was the Queen Mother.  Her simple, "I know. I know." is perfection and goes a lot farther than anything else.  It still stays with me how she did that and I have had comfort from them even at this distance.  Harry, for all, I'm sure, the best intentions, missed the mark this time.  And the fact is, life doesn't ever get "better", it just gets "different" and you grow up and into it.  That's a fact.

Some pretty scathing comments  -  many think he is, once again riding the coat tails of his mother to gain popularity, hoping the "dopey" public will buy it  -  not many are and can see right through it, thank goodness.  Too many have seen how badly he behaves.  The other thing that irritates me is that it was his mother, Diana, who started supporting the HIV effort, her famous photo of shaking hands with an HIV person went around the world, she was not scared to touch him, or any other HIV person.  This is all old hat, and PD should not be raked up, yet again, to make him look good.  He got himself into this pr mess, let him get himself out of it.  They keep using PD for the wrong reasons, and very selfishly  -  to give them pr when they have made the popularity an all time low all by themselves, with no help.  No wonder the rf are no longer that highly thought of, especially the younger generation, they are so petulant, childish, lazy and want it all done for them.  Garden party for the kids, yes, we will do that   -  probably never even saw the whole thing until they turned up, not one bit of effort went into it, other than they attended, they most certainly did not do any of the hard, donkey work, or the clearing up.  But they got the pr glory  -  or so they though, most of the public saw through that as well.

http://rarehistoricalphotos.com/princess-diana-aids-1991/

It really gets on my nerves when they try to get pr with something Diana has already done, and her name used for pr for their own purposes.  Used to like haza, but since the murky murkle debacl he really has showed his true colours, without even trying.

It's been one event after another for Harry, but it's clear that the spark just isn't there anymore. Grown ups know what's up. I try viewing him in the same light as well but all I see is Prince "Nobody wants to be King" who sneaks off into the night bed hopping.

His escort's face says it all, really. No one is falling for the act this time, no matter how many bus loads of kids KP brings in.

^ Those kids weren't bussed in. The children Harry was greeting came from military families. He was visiting an RAF base in Suffolk to present new colours and greet graduating gunners. That's why Harry was wearing his uniform. And there were a ton of photos from that engagement and an earlier naval one that showed that people, both adults and children, were very pleased to see him.

I hope my post isn't seen as flame bait. It's just an observation of what looks like quite the stark difference in people's perception of Harry pre- and post-statement and interview.

That said...

^ The fact that you needed to explain that only proves my point. Actions speak louder than words. As with the above links' case, the images just gave a powerful impression. And the context is already implied when I remarked about the children. The other day it was veterans, yesterday it was the sick, and today it's children. The PR machine is in overdrive and it's clear for every one to see. Well maybe not every one.

I think it's disturbing that he isn't at a higher level; by now he should be much more advanced and doing higher level work and have an established record of appearances stretching back to his teens. He should have an established bond with the people and should be well known and well liked and certainly, much more articulate. His presence is hardly cheering since he's not bringing more volunteers and he could in fact have more of an impact if he were seen there working and somehow attracted more volunteers. Pity he isn't at all someone who chose to stand on his own two feet and make the most of his years that would have ended up a seasoned royal. Instead he threw the best training years away on booze and cheap women who didn't nothing at all for him.

Let´s face it, it is not as though he does a lot anyway.  Yes, he turns up at events, smiles, mixes well with people, but most of the time that is it, nothing more.  Who plans the Invictus Games, does all the leg work and donkey work, stresses about how it is all going, will it be ready in time, is everything in place, and etc. etc. etc.  Not haza, not at all.  So maybe he does go to a metting to discuss it, and have ideas, but he doesn´t plan the meeting, put out an agenda, take minutes, and put ideans/actions into place.   A lot  of work goes into it all, he turns up and joins the games, very noble of him, but still he is not doing the work is he.  Probaby enjoys it all.  Rather like the Terrible Twin of his, turns up, does a better job than bill medd I grant you, and then he goes. Driven or helicoptered there, taken back, end of, changes clothes and off doing his own thing.  Not difficult, what an easy numberand the rewards are more than sky high.

The Invictus Games was Harry's idea, adapted in an international format, from the Warrior Games in the US. One of his biographies I have on Kindle goes into detail of how he argued for the Games, sought funding and was in on the planning from start to finish, of the London based Games, the first IG. He also began Sentebale, at 19. What charity has William ever begun, or planned for, or overseen?


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2017
Post by: Kuei Fei on July 29, 2017, 04:09:40 pm
No biographer is going to state that Harry didn't do much. I don't think he does all much by himself and I don't think he has the brains to handle the details and the logistics. I also do not think that Harry had to struggle all that much to get it going since he is a prince and he is certainly not at all without a voice. I don't think he even knows how to do a purchase order and I do not believe that he struggled to get money or backers. It is a great idea and a great focus, but he didn't struggle.

Let´s face it, it is not as though he does a lot anyway.  Yes, he turns up at events, smiles, mixes well with people, but most of the time that is it, nothing more.  Who plans the Invictus Games, does all the leg work and donkey work, stresses about how it is all going, will it be ready in time, is everything in place, and etc. etc. etc.  Not haza, not at all.  So maybe he does go to a metting to discuss it, and have ideas, but he doesn´t plan the meeting, put out an agenda, take minutes, and put ideans/actions into place.

I don't think he can even stay sober, much less handle and run the logistics of something like the Invictus Games; it has become grand in a very short time and I don't believe that he's been able to actually initiate and sustain that kind of growth in such a short time.

Exactly. His volunteers who run themselves ragged don't get an ounce of the credit and I do think he was unable to handle the "King Harry" reaction he got. I do think he gets off on the good press and he has made himself much of the center of attention.

^ When was the last time Harry was seen drunk, or even clubbing? There is absolutely zero evidence that Harry is a drunk. He had enough brains to fly Apache helicopters and it does take nous and considerable organisational skills to draw money out of people for your charities and causes. Prince Charles has spent a considerable amount of time in the last thirty years doing precisely that.

This. With his many blunders, the people are finally distinguishing the mask from the real person. It's quite a rude awakening for everyone, really. Most unfortunate for the people he is supposed to serve, those that actually took pride in him not 24 months ago. I agree, kudos to him for having the intention. But he will always end up relying on others with more skills and experience to see them through. The thing is, no one and nothing is keeping him from learning from the sidelines. We hear about their father griping about how his sons won't assume responsibility for The Prince's Trust--and for someone who is supposed to be big on charity, who wouldn't want a ready-made foundation with such clout? It's not about Sentebale or Invitus, either. It's not as if his foundations won't benefit from the added boost.

And then we hear about ELF on the verge of leaving. Is he really that thick, to be willing to let go of practically the only individual at court who has looked after him and put his welfare first?

During their twenties Harry and William should have been working for the Prince's Trust, but foolishly decided to just party all the time and fancied they would be able to handle it all or start in their thirties. Life however doesn't work like that and frankly I believe that both threw a huge chance at an easy introduction to charity work via their father's foundation. As for Sentebele, it gives him an excuse to hang around Africa playing at being a desert warrior and as for Invcitus, it enables him to mingle with heads of state and travel the world in style and for a reason other than idling.

As for Sentebele, it gives him an excuse to hang around Africa playing at being a desert warrior and as for Invcitus, it enables him to mingle with heads of state and travel the world in style and for a reason other than idling.

I agree. They should have been 'working royals' while still in their twenties. But Chucky was (is) too busy trying to cram Cammie down our throats to bother with his sons. And Liz is too weak to do anything. But they had the means and opportunities to do so much, they just blew it.

Neither brother was partying through their twenties any more than any other young men of the same age. They were performing public duties as well as following their careers. If they 'blew it' they'd hardly be undertaking full time royal duties from now on. They didn't 'blow' anything in fact, and their numbers are up from last year and the year before, when both undertook tours.

In basketball, there's a thing we like to call "Empty stats." It's when a Player displays numbers that would seem impressive for those who are just checking the box score. In reality, they may score the highest points but a closer look would reveal that they didn't really contribute to winning. That's what these boys have been doing, they only Go through the motions and Show up for the shallow applause. They do not "play to win." Harry used to. Not sure what happened. Maybe it was too tiring for his spoiled, holidaying *ss.

Thing is, I don't really see the need to Look back to their 20's. The point is that they could easily make up for it NOW. Ball don't lie.

William and Harry have jet-setted all the time and frankly neither could have remained in the military with all their partying; normal military men live on base and don't live in a mansion with servants and trips to foreign climes soon after their wedding. Harry wasn't living on base when he was in Vegas and he wasn't living on base when he was in the States. Charles was jetting around as a young man, but he wasn't fronting at being a serving member of the armed forces; they haven't done a sliver of what Charles did as a young man and frankly it's not like either WKH are in meetings, none of them can barely read or articulate a speech.

When Harry was in Vegas he was on a 'pre-deployment' leave - something given to all British serving personnel who are about to go to an active war zone. He had the money to take himself and his friends to Vegas for a blow-out time.

He didn't always live on base due to the RPOs declaring that the bases weren't up to the security required for a high profile royal. Not everyone doing training in the US lives on a base (I have a cousin who spent six months doing a training course on a US base and he was put up in a nearby hotel for the time due to his father having the money for him to stay there rather on base and he preferred it as it gave him more freedom and as long as he didn't miss any training he was fine.) These men weren't in basic training or officer training but later training and so had a greater freedom to stay where they wanted - just like they would have in their home countries. Surely not all US servicemen and women live on base?

William and Kate went to a 'foreign clime' soon after their wedding for their honeymoon. Surely no one can deny a couple a two week honeymoon? William's father took over two months with Diana - to sunny climes such as Egypt and elsewhere in the Mediterranean and then Balmoral.

The overseas visits they made on behalf of The Queen - such as the Jubilee visits - were also part of their military service. That is standard practice and Charles and Andrew were also on official military duty when they undertook such visits while they were active serving officers.

The British military, particular the officers, have a culture of working hard when on duty but partying hard when off duty and that is exactly what the princes did.

In Britain many officers live off base - if they can afford to do so - which many of them can do as they already come from wealthy families. The Duke of Kent and Prince Michael didn't live on base and nor did Captain Mark Philips. James Hewitt didn't live on base either. It would be more unusual for officers to live on base in the UK, particularly when married.

Pre-deployment in the US is taken pretty seriously.  Yes, you get, usually, 2 weeks, a month max (after that, without an extension, you are UA/AWOL) to get prepared but you are still in a state of "combat readiness" so Harry's behavior in Vegas was not only reckless and embarrassing but would have fallen under disgracing the uniform here.  Pre-deployment is an unknown.  If deployment had been announced that night, for any other human being, charges would have been issued.  But, he's special!  Deployment can happen at any time so he behaved really badly under the circumstances.  If you want to behave like an a$$ you do it on base.  Letting off steam on base is acceptable and supported.  This was markedly insulting to those with families to consider. 

The whole point of pre-deployment leave is to be with family, get your affairs in order and do as anyone would do in the face of possible death or dismemberment.  It's a time of respect and preparation.  Parties like Harry's are for after discharge or if a war has ended.  He knew that.

As for housing, basic training and deployment military stay on base.  Period.  Families can receive housing pay off base, of course and all officers and others after training or upon return from deployment can stay on or off base.

Regardless of the rules for living on or off base, the statement that security wasn't as good on base as off makes no sense to me whatsoever. How can on base security/ living on base not be secure? And I remember well that he was not allowed to live off base when he was with Chelsy, but he got different rules and did live off base, which no one else was allowed and it still remains forbidden (when he was still in training at that point; the fact remains that rules got bended a lot for him and his gf at the time, so I don't take anything as normal from them, ever. They always get special rules and reasons are given, but the reasons are fabrications to pacify the masses).

Blowing off steam I realize, but I do find it weird what different cultures and people see as "normal" when doing so (I remember in psychology class a study that was about culture clashes between US soldiers and British women ca 1945 - the US men being "slower" whilst the GB women much "faster" during dates (ie sexual relations), and for both their approach was normal/ the other's abnormal. I was just surprised that women -and therefore men- coming from a culture that was famous for gentlemen and ladies was in fact so brash; whilst the US people widely known for their brashness being much more reserved and romantic - in fact, actually gentlemanly and ladylike). Many things go way beyond boundaries and are unacceptable to me, which are put down to by many as "that's what soldiers do to blow off steam" or "lads, eh?" / "boys will be boys!". Erm.. No.
Just like I don't get the wh*ring of soldiers past and present. Brothels would always grow like weed during wartime for soldiers. But heaven forbid a woman had a tete-a-tete whilst her man was off for years; but him going to brothels and bringing back fck knows what to infect his wife with or fathering children abroad and generally him being blatantly unfaithful is somehow fine.
The world is a funny place, don't try to make sense of it.

Just because Harry could live off base, doesn't mean he should; bases are loaded with soldiers with weapons and an eagerness to get into war and it doesn't get any safer than that. He has his family just doesn't' want to obey any boundaries and be one of the crew.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2017
Post by: meememe on September 01, 2017, 11:29:20 pm
Pre-deployment leave in the US sounds very different to pre-deployment leave in Britain or Australia. It is a 'holiday break' and the person is free to do whatever they want. Married people will probably spend it with family (we often have children missing school because their father/mother wants to take them away for a two week holiday) but for singles they can and will go somewhere and have fun e.g. go to Bali or Fiji and get drunk and no one will care. The only reason why anyone cared with Harry was that is was made public. There were other officers from his unit there with him doing the same thing but no criticism of them because they aren't Harry.

Pre-deployment leave also means they know exactly when they are being deployed - date and time of leaving. They can't be called up to go earlier as they have been given their orders and so long as they are at the meeting or embarkation point, whichever it is, on time and correctly attired and equipped they are totally fine. They will usually have their families with them at that point as well. Harry didn't do anything wrong in terms of what he was allowed to do in the lead up to being deployed. Had he been John Smith no one would have turned a hair. The reason people criticise Harry is that he is a prince and therefore isn't allowed to do the things that other people in his situation are allowed to do, according to his detractors.

I am no fan of Harry's, or William's, but I refuse to criticise them for doing what is normal for men with those orders and will judge them by the standards of the UK military not the US's.

Harry was not in basic training in the US but specialist training and I know Australians who have also done specialist training in the US and they didn't stay on US bases. They aren't expected to stay on the base in specialist training anymore than they are expected to live on base after finishing their basic or officer training. It seems that this is simply let's 'bash Harry' for doing what others do rather than looking at the facts.

The argument that he should live on base because there are other soldiers there falls down because 1. most officers live off base if they are able to afford to do so 2. there is limited space on base and so he would be taking up a room (and more than one at that as the RPOs would also need to be accommodated - so he would need at least 3 rooms - one for himself and two for the two on duty at any given time. The RPOs would be the only ones armed most of the time as in the UK, like Australia, the soldier's don't have active weapons with them all the time. In my own time in the army I only ever carried a weapon loaded with live ammunition on the range. The rest of the time it was either totally unloaded or we were using blanks so not that secure.

^No soldier ever expects to know exactly when deployment will take place.  They are given instructions and dates but know full well that can change at any moment based on a zillion different reasons.  Only top brass know.  For Harry to not know this as active military is preposterous.  He would have to cancel all work events until further notice as well.  It's war not an invitation to a scheduled garden party.  Again, he knows this.  Or should.

Post by: meememe on September 02, 2017, 12:16:58 am
I know many many servicemen and women - having been one myself - and the deployment rules are clear - once given the orders they can not be changed. That is why the pre-deployment leave is as close to the deployment as possible and why people are encouraged to go away with family. As I said we regularly have children who are out of school with their parent on - pre-deployment leave and often they are out of the country or even 'go bush' so not contactable.

Different rules may apply in the US. I can only comment on what pre-deployment leave meant to me and those I know (both UK and Australian).

I know that August is sacrosanct vacation time, but I thought that was because the entire RF was supposed to be together all the time, as is family tradition. I do believe that if Harry had spent August with the BRF and had in fact at least spent time with the public doing duties, he wouldn't be getting flamed as he is now. His entire life has largely been one long vacation and I know it is frustrating, but he has to be seen to be getting involved in duties and his charities. He has to prove himself. He has to do his duties and live a public life, since his actions affect nations. He is WAY past the age where this is intimidating and he is WAY past the age where he should have been engaging the public regularly. This is his purpose and as for wanting more, he is not going to get it since he hasn't yet proven himself. I find it ironic that he is too good for duties, but not too good for the low types he hangs around.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2017
Post by: meememe on September 02, 2017, 02:13:38 am
August is their summer holiday time but it has not been 'all together' since the Queen's children reached adulthood.

From when Anne and Mark married there have been lengthy times when one or more of the children and now grandchildren aren't at Balmoral.

Over the last 20+ years it has been the Queen and Philip there for the entire two months - August and September - while other members of the family visit for a weekend or maybe a week but rarely are they all there at once. In some cases they go up for the weekend and then leave during the week.

Andrew and Sarah usually visit when The Queen is there before Philip arrives and it is rare for Andrew to visit again unless one or other of the girls is also going. This year, for instance, Beatrice hasn't been at all yet and Eugenie was there with her parents for the weekend before The Queen officially went into the Castle - i.e. before Philip arrived.

Like 'Christmas at Sandringham' it is a matter of the Queen and Philip there for the entire time while the others visit. Charles and Camilla will be spending the next longest period there as Charles has Birkhall and he will spend a lot more time there than the Queen and Philip spend at Balmoral.

The Wessex's regularly go to Spain in August as well to take the kids on a summer holiday - no photos of that this year but doesn't mean they haven't gone.

Where Harry decided to spend the summer break is done to him and would be done with The Queen's permission and approval. He has spent most of the summer in Africa for the last couple of years so nothing unusual there for him to do so again this year.

Harry is lazy - no doubt about it. When he does duties he does them well but he, like his older brother, are determined to reduce the number of engagements and to work with only a few causes for a few years and then move on. It is their way of 'modernising the monarchy' and they have the support of The Queen and Charles with their approach. Both of them believe that the BRF has become 'bloated' but they don't want to stop the Queen's cousins doing what they have always done thinking that would be ungrateful on their behalf as well as the nation's but in time the numbers will reduce and if Harry and William stick to their guns then the 'norm' will be around 200 - 250 per year for the monarch's consort and monarch's sibling/s and around 400 for the monarch, due to the 'behind closed doors' things that the monarch does e.g. receiving new ambassadors and high commissioners. The idea of 4000 in total a year will drop to an expected around 1500 by the time William is King and possibly even further with George.

The Prince will officially open Northern Ireland Ambulance Service’s new £5.6 million station, which combines Ballymena Ambulance Station and North Division Headquarters.

In the afternoon he will head to Belfast where His Royal Highness will spend time at Co-operation Ireland, an organisation which aims to promote interaction and practical collaboration between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

Harry will hear about the NI National Citizenship Service and the Amazing the Space programmes, which bring young people together who would otherwise not meet.

The Prince will later be among hundreds of guests at a garden party at Hillsborough Castle. The event, which was attended by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge last year, has been hosted annually by the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland since 1984.
Hillsborough Castle is the official residence of the Royal Family when they are in Northern Ireland, and the home of the Secretary of State since the early 1970s.

Exactly.

There is a reason that the BRF had to resort to recruiting a naive nineteen year old virgin (Diana) and a jaded party girl (Fergie) for the role of Princess of Wales and Duchess of York. No prominent family wanted to offer up their daughters (families of real royals, not just ambitious aristocrats) to be used and then discarded on the scrap heap of the tabloid pack and then treated like dirt to the point where they NEED to make the break and get out. Then get vilified and ostracized and driven out of the country and then people sincerely do think that they're going to be assassinated.

No wonder no sane woman wants anything to do with them.

So it's hard to now believe that he wants a divorced tacky indiscrete user like Meghan who'll continue to overshadow and disrespect his good works.

The royal, 33, is joining forces with the Defence Secretary today to tell soldiers that dealing with mental health is just as important as learning new combat skills.
Harry is launching a new partnership designed to improve the mental health of current and former Armed Forces personnel by rolling out support to veterans and those still serving across the three services.

The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry will provide advice and resources to the Ministry of Defence to improve training and education.
Resources will be integrated into staff training courses and briefing processes across the Armed Forces from the middle of 2018.

They will also be widely available online, to strengthen the mental health support and services already available to Defence personnel.

^^That’s because it is political.  The donations garnered through the summit/foundation go directly to Super PAC funds for the Democratic Party (DNC).  Harry is an idiot.  This is as clear as day to anyone paying attention in the States.  Bad move.

Harry seems to be on a self-sabotage mission.   There's his unpopular girlfriend, and then his chumminess with the Os.  First of all, the involvement of Barry and Mooch with any veteran charity makes me want to hurl.  No president has done more to damage the American military than B. O.  Even to the point of blabbing information that put troops at risk.  So why in the Sam Hill is Harry welcoming this presence into his work?   Unbelievable.

And, it is amazing that the Os are going to actually appear in Chicago.  Finally.  They have been gallivanting about with their billionaire friends [Branson] since they FINALLY left the White House.  So kind of them to take a moment out of their glitzy globetrotting to go back to their neighborhood and help struggling people there. 

They are disgusting.  And I once was so fond of Harry, but the people with whom he is choosing to associate is causing me to lose my sense of humor.    :sigh:

I can assure you that everything the Obamas do is political. The younger members of the RF seem cozy with them, and if that's okay with you, then who am I to judge. Just think though, how it would be perceived if this was a former Republican president Harry was attending events with and such.

^I *despise* to disillusion anyone but Rebecca is 100% correct.  Absolutely everything the Obamas do is politically motivated  or to influence his or her own political agenda or anyone coming up in the ranks within the Democratic Party or anyone who needs monies, articles, a slick side statement to tarnish or destroy anyone on this earth who opposes the Obama agenda. 

Harry is being very very ill-advised or influenced to get involved with this.  A bill will come due at some point and as sure as the sun rises in the east it will garner no positive impact for the BRF, which is Harry's job.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2017
Post by: windsor2 on October 14, 2017, 03:24:35 am
At the end of the day, I'd think that the BRF would know what they're doing at that level; dealing with a former president and keeping the family members out of sticky political situations. When the Obama's were invited to dinner and met George in his bathrobe, or when they went to stay with the queen at Buckingham Palace whilst he was still in office, I don't recall posters talking about the BRF is being foolish dealing with the Obamas because they're all about the politics. I'm not pro Obama or anti Republican, I just don't see them as always pushing their political agenda. Anyway, we'll see how this plays out on the day.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2017
Post by: YooperModerator on October 14, 2017, 03:49:34 am
^It may be helpful to understand that in the US there is a vast difference between an elected official, in office, and a private citizen promoting political ideologies.  Former Presidents know that their role is to remain neutral, work on severely scrutinized fundraising initiatives and only when a national election comes around and they are invited by the Party Committee, do they speak up and either endorse a candidate or choose not to.

Obama, at this point, is using his "star power" for a select party and highly financially so.  So, things are vastly different now than they were when he was POTUS.  Only the DNC can be involved in handling and soliciting monies.  That is outside of Obama's jurisdiction. 

For Harry to align himself in any way at this juncture has a high probability of his being used in a variety of projects that are only for the benefit of the United States' Democratic Party.  That is the difference and that is why this is problematic.  Obama is the first former president to operate this way and it's highly suspect.

suspect and self serving in his kissing up to any
royal who will have him. I have never seen a President
current or ex be so besotted with fame and trying to upscale

^^Harry went on camps in the army so he is used to it. I do think toasted marshmallows are and certainly were when Harry was a boy more a North American thing than something popular with British campers. Toast, sausages in a frying pan over an open fire, yes, toasted marshmallows no. Here in Australia I don't think they're very popular either.

^ Harry has not married a Fergie type nor do we know how Meghan will act as a member of the BRF. He is not a monarch's favourite son. He's never been called Air Miles Harry, never been accused of corruption as a trade ambassador for Britain, never had a wife who was unfaithful with two Americans and probably never will, is not fat, has never had a huge house built for him that he sold to an oligarch, and has never been accused of Pedophilia.

At Harry's age Andrew hadn't done most of those things either - sure he had married Fergie - but the rest - no.

He was a highly respected serving officer in the RN in which he served for over 20 years, something Harry claimed he wanted to do and then he quit six months later.

British royals, like royals elsewhere, regularly visit other countries. This time it is Harry visiting Denmark. Next week Charles and Camilla go to Singapore, Malaysia and India. Later this year William and maybe Kate are to also go to Scandinavia. Andrew, Anne and Edward have also done a number of overseas visits this year - it is what they do. Although there is the 'Brexit' claims going around I am not convinced because this is simply a normal years' work with William, Kate and Harry replacing people like the Duke of Kent and Princess Alexandra on the overseas roster.

scary' Prince Harry warns young people spend too much time on social media

Prince Harry attends visits school during trip to Copenhagen

He said during a visit to a mental health charity discussion held at one of Copenhagen's leading chain of bakeries: "It's crazy and scary."

At the Lagkagehuset bakery in Copenhagen, Harry told ambassadors for the One of Us mental health charity: "People are spending far too much time online and it's like a mental running machine that they can't get off.

"You wouldn't put your body through such a workout. "I'm the last person to say ban it but people are suffering from mental fatigue and getting burnt out.

"We all need to talk to each other more."

As he entered the bakery in the suburb of Hellerup, Harry spotted a huge strawberry tart and said "That is one tart? I would only want a slice of that."

Reunited! Prince Harry and Michelle Obama Surprise Chicago High School Students
Quote
The pair stopped by to spend time with about 20 students at Hyde Park Academy, a high school across from the future site of the Obama Presidential Center on the city’s South Side.
Mrs. Obama wanted to bring Prince Harry to Hyde Park Academy to showcase the world leaders who will participate in the Foundation’s programming and events and visit the surrounding community.

Harry, 33, is scheduled as one of the headline speakers for the Obama Foundation event. Other speakers include Chance the Rapper and legendary activist Dolores Huerta.
http://people.com/royals/prince-harry-michelle-obama-chicago-obama-foundation-summit/
This is the kind of engagements that Harry's very good at. Put politics aside, Michelle's the kind of woman that Harry should strive for; someone who uses her education and position to help those less fortunate-the vulnerable youth of Chicago's South Side. Michelle's from there and now she's giving back to the community as well as her husband.

Prince Harry Said Princess Diana’s Death Made Him Question the Value of Philanthropy

The prince talked about why he “will always look up” to his late mother at the Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

Prince Harry spent his Halloween in Chicago, where the globe-trotting prince helped kick off day one of the Obama Foundation Summit with a conversation with businesswoman Mellody Hobson. Though he’s now devoting his time toward efforts like the Invictus Games and Heads Together, Harry admitted that when his mother, Princess Diana, died in 1997, it made him question the karmic value of philanthropic work. “I think what happened to my mom probably put me a step back, thinking, well, how could someone who did so much for the world and did so much for everybody else be treated like that by a certain institution?”

Personally I think he was talking about the press. Diana admitted that she played with fire regarding the press, so she wasn't entirely innocent in her treatment by them.   :cookie:  Now this crap with MM and her ilk will not bring him anything but bad press and a very damaged image where his charitable work will only be viewed as damage limitation. It was has been refreshing not seeing her pop up and overshadow his engagements. I hope that continues and that situation gets resolved as she's like a bad shadow lurking in the background.

As Fly says, it's really coming out more and more how Will & Harry feel, and they're not even trying to conceal it anymore and use any sort of euphemism...

Ok, that makes more sense regarding him talking about the royal family, but imo, it's more of the way Charles treated her than the institution. Charles never really had her back and felt threatened by her popularity.
I hope Harry gets it that he's indispensable and will be continued to be used to elevatie Wills and Charles. Look at who's now been seen as a leader. It's not Harry anymore, it's Wills; the future king.
Is he now been set up for a big fall regarding his participation with the summit and the MM situation now that Wills has Ms Quinn to deal with Waity and he can start being positioned in more high flying engagements that's heavy hitting for someone in his position? Will Harry now be regulated to the sidelines as Wills takes center stage and tries to shine? Harry's gone from being seen as king material and a mover and shaker after the inaugural IG in London to a bit of a loser struggling with mental health issues and a tacky "girlfriend" who has a very murky background.

The Windsors ALSO never really had her back and TOO felt threatened by her popularity. Diana herself said to Morton her time in Balmoral and Sandringham were the most stressful time of year to her, when she was supposed to be there to relax/holiday but for 10 years she had the most awful time there. The Queen and Philip, courtiers didnt appreciate her popularity and as she was the face of Monarchy in 1980s. Her former secretary wrote in his book as he was told Diana shouldnt to be seen in cancer, Aids, homeless charities and Diana had to ask to him for engagements like that. Ken W also commented as the Queen didnt want Diana involved in Aids charities. As Diana herself said in James Gilbey phonecall the Windsors were/are a 'fucking family'. I remember a doc showed as Diana was popular in 1980s and as every charity wanted her as its a patron and courtiers will try offer Charles as a patron but they (charities' head) wanted Diana. (I think the doc was 'Diana story of a princess')

BTW Meghan is pro-Obamas and a democrat

^true, so now it's Harry's turn to be marginalized by the Windsor's as Charles and Wills are supposed to be more in demand and popular than him. As I said, look at how far Harry's popularity and "star" power has dropped since the first IG to now that he's associated with SoHo House Hollywood trash MM. look at how Wills is out and about in the U.K. looking more stately as Harry's looking less so and as people keep fretting that he's associating with the Obama's are more political than just friends supporting each other. Harry's on a slippery Sloan whereas Wills seems to be ridding a smoother path.
This bs though should come to an end by next weekend; Rememberance Day because it should only be about the military service men/women being honored and not about the Windsor's and the rubbish people they associate with.

I would not say Charles is more popular and in demand than Harry--or William. I don't think Harry can be marginalized for 25 years unless Charles decides to recruit the York sisters. Charles is not getting any younger, Camilla pulled some ugly faces on their tour today because the work was exhausting to her (all that sampling of food) William and Kate are lazy (she may want another child after this one), so how can Harry be marginalized? George and Charlotte won't do royal work for years and years.

I don't see Harry's popularity dropping. Meghan is expected to work if she marries Harry.

Where are the press articles criticising Harry for 'ordering MPs' to see him at KP as happens when the CC lists the same things happening by Charles or William. (It is normal practice and has been happening for centuries where the senior royals talk to MPs about things that they are interested in but when Charles or William do it they have 'ordered' the MP to visit but it seems that nothing will be said about Harry.

Indeed he does. However his engagement wasn't getting much attention as it was way down the page and had few comments. When the headline changed to his joking with one of the vets about MM, then the article started to get more comments. What's a shame about Harry is that he has to be in some sort of scandal or controversy to get attention from the press and the public. It's getting old.  :cookie:

^ It was Richard Palmer who said something like that. He's inferred over the last few years that things the younger royals do over and over, even the IG and annual events, cease to be newsworthy. William gets little coverage either on most of his solo engagements. It's only if something interesting happens or is said, that, according to Richard, editors consider a long article.

Harry used to be a lot more hands on in engagements so there was more likelihood of something unusual happening. In Kate's engagements at least reporters can write about her clothes, shoes, hair etc. They can't do that with males. Hence the media want Harry to get engaged/married;  lots of stories to be had, engagement interview, wedding, more clothes, shoes, rivalry with Kate hinted at for his wife.

Even so, there were lots of photos of the ceremony in the Fail, and clips of Harry speaking to people and the bulldog etc.

Post by: windsor2 on November 10, 2017, 12:13:41 pm
True, only as long as the woman will bring drama. CB did with her constant pr because she wanted to jump start her acting career and we know that the very unsuitable MM is doing that and using him to get money for product placement. The press would love for her to stay attached to Harry because every engagement will be overshadowed by her with the press salivating at what crass thing they can report about her next. It's a very bad that the press feel that him doing the same engagements every year's too boring for them to cover. They lose focus that it's about the participants like the vets at the IG.

‘It's days like today I miss her - they'd be thick as thieves’: Harry pays poignant tribute to his mother and says Meghan and Princess Diana would have been best friends

    Prince Harry said Diana would have been 'so happy' and 'excited' for the couple
    Harry also said: 'It's days like today when - when I really miss having her around'
    Meghan Markle said it was 'incredibly special' to have Diana's jewels on her ring

I do not want to diminish his love for his mother or his wish for her to be here; but really, I do detest preposterous stuff like "late XY would have absolutely loved / detested ABC", you just don't know. For someone to fantasize that their late granny, mummy, daddy, whoever would have reacted this way or loved this or that is all nice, but to claim you know it and that's how it is, is just beyond silly. I miss my granny so so much, but I cannot say she'd have loved my boyfriend or husband because frankly whilst he might be the best man ever and treat me like God's gift, she could have hated him on sight. Sometimes you just don't like someone and there needn't be a logical explanation, but please stop claiming you know someone and what they would want now, how they might feel now, when they can't tell you.  :angry:

Royal Honeymoon? Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Could Visit the U.S. After Their Wedding
After their May wedding, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could well make a trip to the U.S.

Harry has long supported Walking with the Wounded, a group that organizes veterans as they recovery from injury and invisible wounds. The group also sponsors Walk of America,  a three-month hike that is set to take place from May to July next year. Three Americans and three British wounded veterans plan to trek 1,200 miles from coast to coast over 14 grueling weeks.

The upcoming walk would be perfect timing for a post-wedding overseas trip, especially given Meghan’s American roots. Harry has previously joined the various expeditions, sometimes in treacherous conditions like the Antarctic. The last Walking with the Wounded project saw a team of veterans trek across Britain, with Harry joining them on one memorable day. At the time, the royal spoke with PEOPLE about the “amazing” support the team had received from locals.
