Prince William And Kate Middleton To Salvage Royal Reputation? [PHOTOS]
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are reportedly pulling out at all of the stops in order to boost the reputation of the Royal Family. Does this have anything to do with the recent scandal that Prince Harry got involved in with the published naked pictures of him partying in Las Vegas?
The younger brother of Prince William has been recently entangled in a scandal after his naked photographs started to circulate on the newspaper, media and internet that showed him having a good time during a private holiday in a Las Vegas hotel room.
According to reports, the senior Royals are apparently worried about the effect that Prince Harry's actions and behavior could have on the Royal Family's relationship with the public around the world. It has now been decided that Prince William together with his wife Kate Middleton will be perfectly placed to rectify the situation and improve things.
The couple was recently spotted at the on-going London 2012 Paralympic Games and the two are also set to visit Singapore later this month as part of a Royal Tour. "The onus is on Kate and William to pull out all the stops now because the Harry situation has rapidly turned into a full-blown crisis," a source told the British edition of Grazia magazine.
"He was away for less than a fortnight, but in that time he's set the royals back at least six months. That's how long they reckon it will take to salvage the reputational damage he's done," the source added.
Meanwhile, Prince William is claimed to have already spoken to Prince Harry about the incident. However, Kate Middleton reportedly stopped her husband from being too hard on his 27-year old brother. Prince Harry has been struggling to cope up with the kind of attention that he has been receiving lately and Kate Middleton is worried about the impact that it might have on the young Royal Prince.
"Nobody is more critical of Harry than himself and they can't stay mad at him when he's so upset. Kate's rallying support from Harry's friends," an insider claimed. "She chooses to believe Harry was set up. Basically, the view is that his kind-hearted generosity makes him easy prey for these sorts of people. Kate's also worried that Harry has become withdrawn," the insider further shared.
The damage has already been done and Prince Harry can not hide from the public forever because of what happened in Las Vegas. Recently, Prince Harry bravely stepped out and faced the public with his first appearance since the scandal broke out at the WellChild Awards in London.
