Prince Harry. Oh dear. It’s finally dawning on him that unnecessary legal battles over ‘he said, she said’ costs money.
Frankly, it’s money he needs to keep hold of, judging by how well he and his missus are currently being received over in the States in the crumbling Montecito Empire.
Whilst the Royal Family have been diligently and admirably getting on with the job, the King with his enlarged prostate, which all credit to him, he shamelessly overshared as a way of encouraging men to get tested.
Hearing it felt like when you discover your parents have sex. But I’m proud of him nonetheless. And Catherine is stepping back until Easter following her operation.
Prince Harry has taken the sensible decision to get out while he still can and withdraw from his legal action against The Mail on Sunday with a relatively low legal bill in comparison to the millions it was likely to cost him to take them to court.
The case has already racked up an estimated bill of £750,000 and his decision on Friday was made just hours before he was supposed to be handing over relevant documents to the High Court. His reasoning?
By pursuing the claim he’d be giving a continued platform to what he called The Mail’s false claims made two years ago. Apparently, he now wants to focus on his legal action against the Home Office last year and on the safety of this family.
Pull the other one! I’d say he’s done more damage to his own safety, revealing his kill count in his tell-all memoir Spare.
More like his lawyers have done the responsible thing, even though they would have bagged a fortune whether he won or lost, and told him how unwise, risky, and expensive it would be to carry on.
Or perhaps Megan has had a word. I mean, their earning power appears to be dwindling, and with three more cases on the go, it’s not cheap.
In the meantime, the Royal Family has gone from strength to strength, even quietly getting a bill passed to ensure that only working royals can take the helm if the King is incapacitated.
Which in layman’s terms simply basically means that neither Andrew nor Harry will be allowed to take charge, or it won’t be easy for them to do that.
King Charles learned a lesson from his outstanding mother, the late Queen, who I have yet to hear anyone say a bad word about.
That’s an example you want to follow, but sadly Harry seems to have learned absolutely nothing. Well, at least he has his Living Legend of Aviation award, which he was personally handed by John Travolta.
I wonder how his mates who fought with him in Afghanistan feel about that. I doubt they’ll be impressed. In any case, a medal won’t pay his bills.
