On Radio 4 just now, relating, of course, to everyone's favourite ginger squaddie being sent back home to suffer mojito waterboarding, after not being allowed to go to Iraq beforehand either:
(in sad voice) This is the second time that he has been prevented from doing something because of his status.
OH MY GOD IT'S LIKE RACISM

I've been prevented being third in line to the throne because of my status. That was just the once, though. Harry is twice as oppressed as me.

It's dreadful, isn't it? What we need now is a Rosa Parks-Windsor.

I get the sarcasm thing, I know the Royal Family is a favorite barrel-fish for folks in the UK. That said, did Harry volunteer for military service? It's kind of messed up that they'd deny him being able to go places with his unit like he's just one of the guys. I guess it's also understandable, but still messed up. This kind of favoritism is one of the big reasons you guys don't even want a monarchy anymore.

That's terrible. All royals should be permitted, nay, encouraged to die for their country.

Would you like a list of ALL the things I've been prevented from doing because of my status? I'm on item 350,971 .....

On the other hand, I could give you just as big a list of things I could do if I were a princess .....

Poor Harry

I've had an idea. The Prince of Wales could become a Muslim, take three more (much younger) wives, have lots more children - then instead of the "heir and a spare" there would be lots of others in line to the throne and Harry could do as he liked.

After all, there is no objection - MI5 and MI6 were quite happy to see Diana with Dodi.
