As if a whole week of bad news for Prince Harry hasn’t brought him enough shame, now word comes that his girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, has dumped the prince. An insider claims that Cressida felt “humiliated” by the nude photos of the prince who reportedly also played strip billiards with at least one other naked young woman, and partied with several other women. At least four young women have come public in the last few days granting interviews about the wild weekend in Vegas with the prince.
And Rupert Murdoch has put in his two cents about the scandal as well, ordering his SUN newspaper to print the naked Prince Harry photos, laying down the gauntlet to the British government that he’s willing to challenge them despite getting his sails trimmed somewhat with that major phone hacking scandal. Most newspapers in the UK didn’t print the nude photos of the prince out of fear of what the government might do to them. Murdock argued that the UK needs something similar to the American Bill Of Rights to defend a free press in the UK.
And word comes that more nude Prince Harry photos may yet leak out, only giving this latest royal scandal more legs.
In Britain, you pay up to 99% of your income in taxes. And the royal family is supported by a portion of these taxes. For any of our readers in the UK: Your tax dollars at work here? You work hard so the royals can cavort naked in Vegas with young women on your dime?
This is a scandal that the royal family didn’t need after things had gone so well recently including the highly successful 2012 London Summer Olympics.
