To think that it's odd that the royal family just brush this under the carpet?

Tbh I don't give much of a shiny shite about the royals generally, but saw Prince Harry on TV this morning and I've been thinking about him today with regards to his questionable parentage. I say questionable but anyone with a pair of eyes can see that he's James Hewitt's son - he's the absolute spitting image of him. Also he looks nothing like Charles or William.

Obviously this has been raised by the tabloids before, but I find it a bit weird that the whole thing is flatly denied by anybody involved even though the truth is staring everyone right in the face.

It raises some interesting questions: surely Harry has a right to know who his father is? If it transpired he was not Charles' son then would he still be a true part of the Royal Family? Would he still be 2nd in line to the throne? It's a right can of worms.

I thought the dates didn't marry up?

He's not second in line to the throne now. I'm ignoring the rest of your post.

If they had ever had real concerns then I'm sure dna tests would have been done

My mum and dad had black hair. Mine was blonde, my brothers is ginger
The milkman/grocer was ginger

Genetics are funny things. My nephews dad is black. My nephew is white with ginger hair. Who cares?

Surely at his age and with his influence if he had any doubts he could check. It's not really anyone's business other than him / possibly Charles?

I think you will find he takes after the spencer line. He looks v much like Dianas' brother.

AnyFucker Mon 07-Sep-15 21:02:13

he is the spit of Charlie

but I don't care anyway

< yawn >

Even if there were any truth in the rumours, I'd praise the Royal Family for realising that family is about relationships, not genetics.

What i think is odd, is a complete stranger thinking they are an authority on another person's parentage and how matter is being/not being death with.
Get off your high horse, stop spreading malicious rumours and mind your own fecking business.

I think he looks just like Charles. More and more as he gets older. They share the same eyes and bridge of nose.

He looks like Diana's brother.

ohmyeyebettymartin Mon 07-Sep-15 21:03:11

You almost have a point except for the fact that he is the spit of his maternal uncle who looks not unlike Hewitt. And the fact that he is very clearly Prince Philip's grandson. Oh and then there's the fact that it's none of anyone else's damned business.

How would you like to have your parentage discussed on a public forum? biscuit

annandale Mon 07-Sep-15 21:03:40

I don't think he is James Hewitt's son but I don't particularly care. The hereditary principle is so ludicrous that if he were to succeed to the throne and did turn out to be someone else's son, it might actually cause us all to look at each other and say 'erm, hang on a minute...'

He looks like Charles.

I am pretty certain he knows who his father is (and will have sought DNA proof at some point).

ohmyeyebettymartin Mon 07-Sep-15 21:03:46

Crossed with spanky.

Have a day off.

Prince Harry looks exactly like Charles especially around the eyes. Not a Diana fan but this is unfair to her and she can't answer back.

MissEeerie Mon 07-Sep-15 21:04:22

I think he looks like Diana's brother. I thought the affair with Hewitt didn't start until after Harry was born anyway?

IFancyRichard Mon 07-Sep-15 21:04:32

Facially he is Prince Charles. Hair belongs to Diana's brother.
