Firstly, Pippa Middleton, looks like a sweet girl, all those photographs of her at friends weddings, and walking down the street, or attending an event with her sister... So why am I reading about Miss Middleton crying her eyes out because she's no longer the centre of attention? Not only this but peoples comments about how she's an attention seeking idiot. Yes because she really has posed for magazines and done multiple paid interviews where she does a tell all. *cough*
I'm sorry but her first ever interview was when she was at a ski resort, because she paid the photographers to follow her there and to interview her. Yes she paid those photographers to follow her walking to and from shops during the day. Because she deliberately went to events with her sister knowing she'd be photographed. (Please note the sarcasm in this paragraph, is quite hard to portray through writing.)
Because she did all those things on purpose....
It's not her fault that she was a maid of honour for her sister's wedding, which mine is for me, and that her sister picked out a beautiful dress that made her look gorgeous. I'm sure Kate didn't pick that dress out thinking "This one will make Pippa out shine me", and I'm sure Pippa didn't see her dress and think "Now this will shoot me into stardom".
|I'm sure not every soldier is well behaved,|
but should we forget their service?
Now to the second section of my ranting. Prince Harry (it's all about the poor royals right now), and his naked photos. Because I'm sure no one else has ever gotten their kit off and had photos of them taken. Yes he has a position that he was born into which should demand responsibility, but as the old saying goes, you can't pick your family.
Prince Harry is third in line to the throne, behind his dad and brother, but as soon as Prince William has a child, Harry will be fourth in line, and depending on how many children Prince William and Kate have, will determine his new rank, as Wills and Kate have more kids, the further away from the throne he'll get.
So all this talk about the pressure on him and what not to be a mature man, come on, he's 27, what were you doing when you were 27? I'm sure you weren't staying home on a friday and saturday night out of respect of some embarrassment that may befall your family, I'm sure you would stay completely sober on a trip to Vegas.. Yeah right.
Shock horror, people are calling for his title to be taken off him, supposedly cause him less pressure to act properly, because it's done so well so far. He can go back to afghanistan, he can live a normal life? The media will stop following him?
No, the fact is, whether he cease being His Royal Highness Prince Harry, and becomes Harry Wales (as the royal family do not have set last names, they take the name of their fathers title, his father being the Prince of Wales, Wales is used as their last name). His title will not change his blood line, will not erase who his father and mother are and who his grandmother is, nor will the media forget all the years watching him grow up to not be interested when he does get married years down the track. I think not.
Unfortunately for Prince Harry, this is his life, and I'm sure he's accepted that, he does not have to participate in royal events, his untitled cousin Zara Philips is still photographed. So the title or not will really not make a difference.
The only thing that will help Prince Harry not make an embarrassment of his family, is for the media to not right a story, if only people cared more about the damage they were doing to people then about making money.
Well that's been a longer post than I expected. I just hate it when people abuse others who are in magazines, when they DO NOT know the whole side of things.
I wont say poor Pippa and poor Harry, this is their lot in life, and they'll be a hell of a lot stronger then the people throwing them abuses.
I will say poor us, poor us for believing that they do these things on purpose, that because they are famous means that are somehow superhuman and above mistakes, poor us for being more interested in the actions of these people then the fact that half the world is still starving, why is that not the leading story on the news? Poor us.
"I'm starting with the man in the mirror,
I'm asking him to change his ways,
And no message could have been any clearer,
If you wanna make the world a better place,
Take a look at yourself and then make a change."
