Prince Harry - who cares?!

The Ten O'Clock News is "specially extended" tonight, because of the story about Prince Harry serving in Afghanistan. And my response is... why?

It's not as if this is that major a story. Harry isn't going to be King, that he's serving in the armed forces has been known about and he's not the first younger son to do so (Prince Andrew fought in the Falklands after all). That foreign media have broken the agreement on this is perhaps a news story, but we don't need endless reports about what Harry has been doing in Afghanistan. We know what our troops are doing there.

The media needs to get some perspective, especially when it comes to celebrities. Mind you the Harry coverage isn't as annoying as the endless stories about some person called Amy Winehouse who I'd never heard of before.
