Prince Harry, The Paki And The Raghead

by | 10th, January 2009

THE News of The World says Prince Harry three years ago did call a person a “paki” and referred to others as “ragheads.”

St. James’s Palace says Prince Harry did not intend much by it – it being him joshing about.

Here’s the round-up. And – get his – Harry is now Jade Goody…

Is he racist?

How racist are you?

NOTW:

The soldier prince pours shame on the Royal Family as he calls an Asian squaddie “our little Paki friend” and tells another officer cadet jokingly wearing a camouflage veil off duty: “F*** me, you look like a raghead”—an offensive term for an Arab.

DAILY MIRROR:

The shocking comment came during an Army training course – and was captured on film taken by Harry HIMSELF.

DAILY MAIL – context:

Celebrity Big Brother was rocked by a race row in 2007 when the housemates, including Jade Goody and her then boyfriend Jack Tweed, sang racist rhymes alluding to the word ‘Paki’. Their fellow housemate was the Bollywood actress Shilpa Shetty.

ASIAN LEADER

The trainee officer – identified as “Ahmed” – was unaware of the racist comment as officer cadets made the recording, it added.

Racist? Fool? Soldier? All three?
