    Perhaps he was thinking of his great grand-uncle Edward?

    I liked this comment about the stupid boy:

    Andy Pike, from Unite Against Fascism, said: “Prince Harry has had a very expensive education, is supposedly fit to be an officer serving in his country’s armed forces and one would assume he is not a complete idiot."

    “One would be very surprised if he were not aware of the significance of wearing the swastika and the amount of offence that would cause."

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's Prince Charles has ordered his son Harry to visit Auschwitz after he caused outrage around the world by wearing a Nazi uniform to a party, the Sun newspaper reported on Friday.

    The paper said heir-to-the-throne Charles was "incandescent with rage" with the 20-year-old grandson of Queen Elizabeth and wants him to make a private trip to the concentration camp to learn more about the Holocaust.

    I think it would have been acceptable if he were also in drag -- you know, a short skirt and long blonde wig.

    But seriously, this mega-gaffe is akin to Jenna Bush going to the NAACP New Year's Ball dressed as Aunt Jemima.

    "Prince Harry said in a statement:"I am very sorry if I caused any offense or embarrassment to anyone. It was a poor choice of costume and I apologize."

    One of my BIGGEST pet peeves are FAKE APOLOGIES that are more about ettiquette than remorse. How do I determine a "fake" apology? The presence of the word "IF" in the apology. Semantics? Not at all. To me, its a real indicator of a real apology versus something you say to make someone stop bothering you.

    Try this one, Prince Harry:
    "I am very sorry to those I have offended or embarassed. It was a poor choice of costume and I am truly sorry for my bad judgement that night."

    This "I'm sorry if you felt bad" crap is pretty sad. You might as well as "I'm not SURE why you felt bad... I'm just sorry if you did. Did you?" By his statement, it sounds clear he's not sure whether he caused any "offense or embarrassment"...

    Heh, interesting Nexus. Makes alot of sense.

    For a 20-year-old "educated" British Royal to not have the foresight to see the offensiveness of it all and to fail to foresee a massive negative backlash from, well, just about everyone and anyone, the kid has to be quite a retard. Which I understand is not uncommon in royal families.

    is he educated?
    Two A-Levels: Art-B, Geography-D (He dropped Art History after Year 12)
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/3150649.stm

    With reference to the scandal concerning his qualifications, doubt was cast on the validity of his art grade, but Edexcel's inquiry turned up no irregularities:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/3734544.stm

    In relation to the rest of the UK (apart from Scotland - different exam system there), that puts him just within the top 30% in terms of academic achievement. As for common sense, that's another matter....

    For our American friends, A Levels are roughly the equivalent of taking an AP course, followed by a SAT-II in that subject, used to determine suitability for university admission.

    Typically, a student will study 3-5 AS-level courses in Year 12, and then continue 3 of them through to the full A-Level in the following year. Only about 40% of students stay on after GCSE to study A levels.

    For further reference, Mike Baker's article at: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/education/3154181.stm is as good a place to start as any...
