EPHRAIM HARDCASTLE: Surely Harry’s blaming of William and Kate for allegedly endorsing his Nazi uniform exposes his incapacity for independent thought?
Harry’s blaming of William and Kate for allegedly endorsing his wearing of a Nazi uniform doesn’t just upset the Prince and Princess of Wales. Surely it also exposes Harry’s incapacity for independent thought and his lack of a sense of history? He wore the offensive garb at a fancy dress party organised by William, who had set the ‘colonials and natives’ theme. Both brothers were rebuked by Prince Philip over the affair. His mother Princess Alice, an opponent of the Nazi regime, spent the war sheltering Jews in Athens and was honoured by Israel, granting her wish to be buried on the Mount of Olives.

During a 2009 interview with BBC’s Newsround, William was asked who’d win an arm wrestle between himself and Harry. ‘It’s not even a contest,’ he boasted. ‘Obviously I’d win.’ He added: ‘As the bigger brother you have that psychological power over your brother.’ Harry should have borne that in mind before his TKO.
Much glee in France at Harry and William’s fisticuffs as Bruce Toussaint, star anchor of BFMTV, the country’s biggest news network, chuckles: ‘First we had Will Smith’s slaps, now Will Windsor’s,’ adding: ‘It’s a good job Harry landed on the dog bowl rather than the dog.’ The Gallic sense of humour is no laughing matter.
Will former BBC Breakfast presenter Selina Scott, pictured, take part in the show’s 40th birthday celebrations next week after current hosts Charlie Stayt and Naga Munchetty cheerfully promoted footage of her bete noire Frank Bough fronting the first ever show? Selina has complained about his ‘smutty remarks’ to her about his manhood, saying: ‘He was a nightmare to work with.’
Lady Antonia Fraser admits she and her late husband Harold Pinter stole books from public libraries, including an early Samuel Beckett that ended up in the collection of Pinter’s books Antonia sold to a collector after his 2008 death. ‘The collector contacted me to say he had found a book taken out from Hackney Library in 1946,’ she tells Radio 4’s The Confessional. ‘He then wrote to Hackney Library and they said the fines were “terrific”!’ Antonia made a donation to the library rebuilding fund, adding: ‘It was an expensive way to borrow a book!’
Julie T Wallace, vengeful Ruth in the late Fay Weldon’s The Life and Loves of a She Devil on the BBC, fondly recalls her screen trysts with Tom Baker. ‘It was brilliant,’ she trills. ‘It’s just mad and then I’m screwing Doctor Who.’ Send for the Daleks!
Battleaxe Christine Hamilton berates former BBC war correspondent Martin Bell, who ousted her husband Neil as an MP in the 1997 election, for claiming that nothing he had encountered in the war zones of Bosnia had prepared him for the shock of meeting her. ‘This may surprise you but I don’t like confrontation,’ she tells a podcast. ‘I don’t like getting into trouble. Everybody thinks I wear the trousers [with Neil] but we do wear a leg each.’ Where does she put her axe?
