Because things like this don’t happen to you or me, (and I certainly don’t wish it on anyone, let alone my most favorite redheaded royal) I thought I would recap what a strange week it must have been to be Prince Harry.
Starting off his week, a pair of inept burglars attempted to break in to the home he shares with his brother, Prince William, as they complete their military training in the Shropshire area of the UK. The wannabe thieves are believed to have been clueless to who lived at the special house with 24 hour surveillance and armed guards. Seriously… duh!
Then comes word the brothers may have had their phones hacked by journalists. Two years ago, a private investigator and a former editor from England’s News Of The World magazine were sent to prison for the breach of privacy of some aides and secretaries to members of The Royal Family including their father, Prince Charles. New evidence is suggesting that the princes’ phones may have been compromised as well.
Detective Chief Superintendent Philip Williams, from the Metropolitan Police, raised the possibility at the Commons Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee.
When asked if he suspected journalists had hacked into the princes’ mobile phones, Mr Williams told the committee: “Yes, I think they may well have done.”
While that is disturbing and creepy, Harry can breathe a bit easier as the Taliban chief who threatened his life has been assassinated. A member of the Australian military found his approved target and killed Mullah Abdul Karim. Karim stated that Harry was “… our special enemy” when the prince was deployed to the Helmand province of Afghanistan in March of 2008. Karim was reported to be a heavy recruiter for the Taliban, disrupting election procedures and directly responsible for many attacks. The Australians ended his life on August 10th, but are just releasing the information now.
On top of all of that, Princes Harry and William have the anniversary of the fatal Paris car crash that took the life of their mother on August 31st, 1997. Princess Diana is missed by many people all over the world but certainly no one feels the loss more than her two sons.
After all that, kudos to Harry for keeping a low profile and his head on straight while all the madness and sadness erupts around him.
