Prince Harry: The Worst Member of the British Royal Family Since Richard III

Posted on | January 11, 2023 | Comments Off on Prince Harry: The Worst Member of the British Royal Family Since Richard III

Consider this: If it weren’t for the prominence of his family, nobody would give a damn about Harry Windsor. Which is to say, all the respect accorded to any member of the royal family is based on their inherited dignity. Why, then, would Harry go out of his way to trash his own family’s reputation? Of course, we can blame that bitch Meghan Markle, but what does it say about Harry that he would choose such a woman as his companion, and join her tacky talk-show “celebrity” trip?

My brother and I were riding to the store when I saw the latest headline about Harry and Meghan, which caused me to erupt in an angry rant: “Tell-all memoir! What a damned idiot! Never trust anyone who speaks ill of their own family. Oh, your dad is a bum and your brother’s a bum? Well, the nut don’t fall too far from the tree, so I reckon you must be a bum, too! ‘Tell-all memoir,’ my ass! Yeah, buddy, the stories I could tell, if somebody paid me to write a ‘tell-all memoir’!”

At which point, my brother interrupted to remind me that he was driving, and if we were to get T-boned at the next intersection — a semi-truck ramming into the passenger side of the Nissan — the cops would never doubt it was an accident, if you catch my drift. But of course, this was merely a joke, because I would never in a million years think to write a “tell-all memoir,” given my own (alleged) role in various disreputable shenanigans. Sometimes I’m tempted to tell tales, but then I remember the Miranda warning: “You have the right to remain silent . . .”

Harry is to the Windsor family what Fredo was to the Corleones. He’s banging cocktail waitresses two at a time and defending Moe Green, so to speak, and where’s the royal Michael to issue the warning?

“Don’t ever take sides with anyone against the family again. Ever.”

Michael understood the value of loyalty, just like he understood the code of omerta. And the Corleones knew how to enforce their distinctive Sicilian concept of honor, which the Windsors don’t understand, or else Harry would be taking a ride to the airport with Clemenza.

Putting aside fantasies of Harry getting “whacked” by a royal enforcer — an MI6 man, discreet and reliable, arriving in a stylish Aston Martin — isn’t there a lesson here for us all? Only a fool would imagine he could benefit by bringing dishonor to his own family, yet such fools are everywhere nowadays, marching around in parades to proclaim how proud they are of their preferred perversions, while denouncing their parents as “bigots” for not celebrating their decadence.

Harry’s reached the Iowahawk “skin suit” phase of degradation:

The British monarchy will survive Harry’s disgraceful behavior, and future generations will spit on the ground at mention of his name.
