Prince Harry in trouble again

The new row comes just a month after Prince Harry was accused of racism when it emerged he had referred to a Sandhurst colleague as "our little Paki friend".

It was also recently disclosed in The Daily Telegraph's Mandrake column that the, Prince William and the Prince of Wales affectionately refer to their Asian friend Kolin Dhillon, a fellow member of Cirencester Polo club, as "Sooty".

Prince Harry was also heavily criticised in 2005 after choosing to wear a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party.

In the latest incident, Prince Harry allegedly told comedian Stephen K Amos that he didn't sound black after his performance in the 'We Are Not Amused' show which was staged  for the Prince of Wales' 60th birthday celebrations in November 2008.

In the privileged society that Price Harry was brought up in these sort of remarks are presumably not regarded as insulting. It may be that the Prince is a bit out of touch with the sensitivities of modern society. Surely that doesn't mean that he has to be pilloried for every remark he makes.
