My contacts at the Palace tell me that "Granny" is backing Prince Harry in his latest stoush with the British Media and Political Correctness.
His relationship with the person he allegedly "slurred", a Cadet at Sandhurst with him from Pakistan, is best exemplified by these few lines from Henry V by Shakespeare
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day.
And it is this crass jealousy of the comradeship of arms that is at the root of the pursuit of Prince Harry, a fine young man, doing a fine job for his country, and the Coalition of the Willing.
