Prince Harry is kind of synonymous with mischief isn’t he? We have watched the jovial redhead make light of otherwise dignified situations, seen his naked shenanigans in Vegas – definitely the less serious of Prince Charles’ sons. In the midst of a News of the World hacking trial one of the messages that Prince Harry left for a former aide is making headlines and catching attention.
According to the BBC, back in 2005 when Harry was at Sandhurst military academy he left a voice mail message for Mr. Lowther-Pinkerton, a former SAS man that was acting as his private secretary. In that message Harry requested information on the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege in London. The transcript that the jury saw included the words: “Just wondering if you have any info at all on siege on the Iranian embassy because I need to write an essay quite quickly on that. I need some inf. Have most of the stuff but if you have extra.”
This leads us to wonder if Harry did his own homework and wrote his own essays or did aides like Lowther-Pinkerton consider it park of their job to make the Prince sound a bit wiser than he might actually be. If Harry had a touch of help in writing those all important essays then that would mean that he cheated, right? If you or I were caught accepting someone elses words as our own there would be a hefty penalty. Do you think that Prince Harry had a little help getting through some of the more tedious parts of getting his education? Would he actually stoop that low and ultimately have his essays written for him? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
