Next time, Harry, be a pirate

England's Prince Harry is eating serious magpie after wearing a Nazi uniform, complete with swastika armband, to a masquerade party. "It was a poor choice of costume," said His Royal Highness.

Gee, think?

Perhaps the youngest Royal forgot that his grandmother changed the family name in 1952 from Saxe-Coburg-Gotha to Windsor, formally adopting the convention set in place during World War I by King George V, specifically so people didn't think the Royals were German. (Actually they are, by ancestry, but one doesn't mention such things in polite company.)

Or maybe His Nibs was high on the wacky tobacky again.

The bonny Prince issued a public apology, and vowed that at next year's bash, he'll select a costume more appropriate to a youth of his lofty station. He's said to be vacillating between a Klan robe and minstrel blackface.
