Nobody knew whether or not Prince Harry had simply arrived in London for the primary day of a four-day preliminary listening to in his case in opposition to ANL/The Mail. Contemplating how a lot media consideration Harry acquired for his shock look yesterday, it is completely taken inventory of him and the worldwide media is broadly reporting on the lawsuit and allegations Harry and different celebrities have leveled in opposition to the Mail. However Harry has a transparent message: This wasn’t only a stunt. Right now he arrived once more on the Excessive Courtroom. He’ll most likely keep for the entire day, similar to he did yesterday. Harry is telling the world: this is essential, please listen.
In the meantime, Harry’s continued presence in London highlights his household’s bitterness, laziness and incompetence, to not point out their continued collusion with the very media forces Harry is defying. The American media can also be speaking about it, similar to they did at QEII’s funeral final yr. Similar to they did when Harry’s father evicted him from Frogmore Cottage. The New York Journal headline was “King Charles pretends he is too ‘busy’ to see Prince Harry.”
King Charles clearly does not need to see Prince Harry proper now. I feel we are able to all relate: Who hasn’t averted a relative as a result of he did one thing heinous, like write a best-selling memoir that exposed a long time of household secrets and techniques? What’s not very comprehensible is King Charles’ failure to give you an excellent motive why he will not be seeing his son throughout his shock go to to the UK this week. The Telegraph experiences that the king is “busy”.
So what precisely is King Charles as much as? The Telegraph says solely that “it’s supposed to be at Highgrove”, which is just two hours’ drive from London. And his schedule might be fairly clear since he was presupposed to be in France this week however needed to postpone the journey as a result of protests in Paris.
If the palace was making an attempt to take excessive floor in its responses to Prince Harry, it could make sense. When you needed to present it a “Fk off” sequence, that might be cheap too. However after Spare, it is by no means clear whether or not the royals are deliberately snubbing Harry or just incompetent. When King Charles stated “Who?” in response to a heckler’s query about Harry, was he actually confused? Or was he making enjoyable of his son? Have palace officers averted naming Harry’s kids prince and princess for months to demean him? Or as a result of they did not know the Sussexes’ title preferences?
Saying the king is “busy” – with out additional element – when everyone knows he isn’t falls into this ambiguous class. Provide you with a believable excuse or insult us in an honest means. What is the level of hiring an entire crew of publicists if “busy” is all they will get?

Ouch! That is my favourite line: “It is by no means clear whether or not the royals are deliberately snubbing Harry or just incompetent.” It is so true! That is additionally one thing I wrestle with, making an attempt to find out if the Windsors are simply terribly incompetent or if they’re deliberately vile. By the best way, in one of many only a few tales revealed by the Mail about Harry’s look in London, they accuse HARRY of informing the Telegraph and telling the paper that his father is simply too “busy” to see him. No- what occurred is that Harry stunned everybody yesterday and Rota’s mice instantly ran to Buckingham Palace and stated “do you know he was coming??” and the palace needed to invent a lie. That lie was “in fact he advised us, and we advised him Charles was too busy to see him!” The Mail additionally claims that Charles and William usually are not within the temper to “indulge” Harry proper now. Excellent news for them, Harry does not give a rattling about them.
