Without someone ruling, there is no Royal Family, however modern and informed it is. Those opportunities for change, to make a difference, to be heard, melt away if no one takes charge.

Harry's relationship with Meghan has swept across the world's front pages. It's natural that we are all interested in the love life of the prince as he is a much-loved high profile figure. Whoever he marries will assume a large role on our country's stage so it is not a position to be taken lightly.

Princess Diana Never Ceased to Love Her Husband Says Her Former Private Secretary

I still cannot believe that I have the privilege to know and work with Patrick Jephson, Princess Diana's first and only Chief of Staff. Few days shy of her 18th death anniversary, I sat down with Patrick to discuss the Princess's life, achievements, as well as the mysteries surrounding her tragic death.

Historical Novelist or Criminologist?

The lawyer's work and that of the detective's long hours is how many mysteries have been solved -- or not. And then DNA entered criminology to add to the writer's magical box of solutions. Here is an example in my own case.

Harry: Prince of Propaganda

From Las Vegas to Camp Bastion, Harry's headlines - both good and bad - build a modern heroic monomyth around him. He may be a professional soldier - but am I alone in preferring to read about his rock 'n' roll hedonism rather than this latest "I killed in Afghanistan" meme?

Do We Really Need to Know What Harry Did in Afghanistan?

Soldiers are required to do just one thing. Kill the enemy. It's their job. Everyone knows it's their job. It's obvious it's what they do. But when you are a member of the Royal Family... should you actually say that you have?

Paul Emsley and Kate Middleton

This is, quite simply, the most brilliant piece of public art in recent years. It's performance art, and mass outrage is an integral part of the show. It doesn't look like Kate Middleton - but then nor do the fuzzy telephoto pics from France, or, for that matter, the airbrushed poses condoned by the palace

The Royals Must Not Let Their Zygote Be Seized by the PR Zeitgeist

Rest assured that this is a very early present for the PR industry. PRs will be peddling their wares and attaching products and brand events onto the media charabang at every opportunity. Sales speak stronger than sentiment, and the baby care PR pixies have been stat-spinning like a tribal dervish overcome by super-strength hallucinogenic cacti.

20 Years Ago Today... The Windsor Castle Fire

Today, 20 November is the 20th anniversary of the fire at Windsor Castle. It was a sad day in 1992 when, during refurbishment work on the 900 year old castle, a spotlight was believed to have overheated and caught fire to one of the curtains by the altar.

There's No Divine Right, Charles

The chances of Prince William leapfrogging his father to the throne increased dramatically this week. As the Prince of Wales heads further and further into unconstitutional waters by demanding his letters to government ministers remain private, William started to look like a much more eligible candidate for kingship.

Prince Harry's Lessons for Leveson

I could make a strong argument that, by inviting to his suite a large gaggle of girls, most, if not all, of whom were strangers, Harry compromised his own privacy. There has been undue focus on the photos. They are but the icing - rich and delicious, it has to be said - on the cake.

A Republican in Defence of a Man They Call a Prince

Harry's just a human being and as such I believe he should have no more or less rights than everyone else and human beings deserve the right to privacy and to reveal their naked bodies to people on terms they agree. The taking and sharing of naked pictures without permission is to me a form of abuse, and for me, Harry is a victim.

The media has gone wild sharing some delightful puns such as "he really has put the crown jewels on display" and he "bares all," and is demanding some reaction from The Palace. But The Palace walls have seen it all before. Prince Harry is not the first royal playboy and he certainly won't be the last.
