Thanks for the memoirs

Well no not really, as who writes their memoirs at the relatively tender age of thirty six?

Attention grabbing young Harry that's who.

Prince Harry promises to share 'highs and lows' in memoir - BBC News

I'd thought such things were written it the Autumn of our years when we reflected on our lives, shared lessons learned and for good measure, chucked in a few anecdotes - but not so it seems and besides, who on earth would pay this old goat a reported £14.5million advance for them anyway!

Give me something by Snoopy any day. 🙂

“It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed. Suddenly, a pirate ship appeared on the horizon! While millions of people were starving, the [prince] lived in luxury. Meanwhile, on a small farm in Kansas, a boy was growing up.”

Re: Thanks for the memoirs

@shutter I'd rather read your memoirs than those Harry Windsor, as I said in the thread you cited you should consider self publishing on Amazon.

Re: Thanks for the memoirs

In June 2018, Prince Harry received promotions in all three services, becoming Major in the British Army, Lieutenant Commander in the Royal Navy, and Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force.

Can't wait to see if his memoirs of his time in the RN come anywhere near @shutter's, and Squadron leader as well eh.

Is there no end to the lads talents. 😆

I hadn't seen that thread before @shutter but have now read it, and very interesting it was too.  Thumbs_Up

Almost 12 years.....  officially, I "signed on" for "9 years from the age of 18"... but I joined at the age of 15 and 3 months.

For someone who wanted privacy he doesn't manage it very well.

@Mayfly 

If only the media and assorted tittle tattle followers would respect this and totally ignore this family and their books, TV interviews etc. etc. then every-one should be happy!

Privacy on his own terms @Mayfly 🤔

Easier said than done @Baldrick1 and virtually impossible given the influence of the media social and otherwise and our own inbuilt curiosity, no?

After all, even here we are reading about it and adding our own comments.

One mans holding others to ridicule is another mans stoking the fires of publicity but yes, you are right... sort of. 🙂

Re: Thanks for the memoirs

The guy is immature but not stupid and like a lot of celebrities it’s important to keep the verbal diarrhoea going as it keeps the money coming in, for those mugs silly enough to pay for it.

We are born into history and history is born into us.
