The teachers made a mistake, but it is uncouth that Harry mumbles and does not speak clearly. All that education at his fingertips and this is how he conducts himself.

Teachers should select speeches were the enunciation is clear and the students have been familiarized with the spoken accent or dialect and also not take simply a public figure because they are well known or deemed desireable or "cool" (by the youngsters).
The speech might have been chosen by the ministry though (don't know how it is for secondary school these days, but sixth form/ high school get their exams sent from the ministry, the teachers have no influence), then it's even worse, because likely they'll have selected randomly something...

There might be plenty of reasons why he'd deny or at least be quiet about his millionaire
/billionaire status, mostly not to draw attention to himself from the wrong sort,
and by that I mean that golddiggers are the least of his worries. There are loads of cases
of wives or kids of bankers being kidnapped & killed, so if you're smart you'll want to stay
as hidden from the public as possible as rich person.

He threw all that away the minute he dated and proposed to Pippa; Pippa loves the spotlight and won't let it go, so I am certain that he shouldn't think that he can just retreat back into a private life. He's attached to the BRF and he is certainly not at all going to end up living quietly. Pippa will want to jet set and be on the covers of magazines and they allegedly tried to flog the wedding to various publications for the sake of money and Pippa hired a PR expert. He is stupid to think that he can just retreat. He surely must not think that attachment to the RF will end up with a private life if he hopes to land the Duchy account or get accounts based on his connection to the BRF.

It looks quite nice. A bit decadent I can imagine how that can cost up to 1 mm. Though they have a tree addiction. Same as westminster abbey.

Airport procedures vary and can be easier for those with private planes, but not always.
Though just because someone owns a plane doesn't mean they for all flights they take. Could be they flew commercially.

Oh wow how did these pics come about? Would love to see what the reception was like and Pip's 2nd dress. Disappointing that she let her hair down like Kate if the articles are to be trusted. I actually like the way it looks inside the glass marquee. Maybe a bit overboard with the centrepieces, but nice nonetheless.

The teachers shouldn't have given these kids an audio with accent or incorrect use of words, of which Harry has both in his speeches, especially on the exam that determines in which university they can be accepted. Understanding accents, dialects non native speakers, improper or colloquial English - this is a skill expected at a higher than the intermediate level required for admission to Universities. They made a mistake.

Rather OTT.

Still as some forums suggesting Uncle G can rent it as a cannabis farm.

German pupils studying English complain about Prince Harry’s ‘mumbling’ in oral exam

PUPILS in Germany have launched an online protest at an English test with a speech by Prince Harry - because the royal was “mumbling”.
Around 100,000 17-year-old pupils in the state of North Rhine Westphalia took the English comprehension test - which makes up half of their final English grade - last week.

But many of the baffled teenagers said the speech was so garbled they could barely understand it.
Even some teachers found Prince Harry's diction “incomprehensible”.

Brigitte Balbach of the region's Teacher's Association told Der Spiegel: "It was too difficult, it was beyond what you could have expected.
