Apparently, there is a huge buzz about Prince Harry attending a costume party in … (gasp) a costume! Okay, it was more than just a costume, it was a Nazi uniform complete with swastika armband… but come on people – it was a friggin’ costume party.
Harry said he was “very sorry if I caused any offense or embarrassment to anyone.”
“It was a poor choice of costume and I apologize,” he added.
Cut the kid some slack… he was at a costume party. People attend costume parties in all sorts of getups – some are quite offensive… and that is half the fun. The ability to take a joke is far more important than worrying that Prince Harry is making a statement condoning the actions of the Nazis.
The media, pundits and yes, fellow bloggers need to just relax a bit. THIS is not something worth getting your cockles up about… (I’m not even sure what a cockle is… but I seem to remember it being British so it seemed appropriate)
