Damn, you gone and mentioned the 'k' word!

Don't worry though, as soon as someone says 'our prince' or any of that bollox I have nothing more to say to them really (we'd never get along), but it does raise the old 'this word can be used here but not there' thingie. Words get reclaimed, recontextualised, re-excused and exonerated etc.

FWIW, I beleive Harry was being no more than a full on ignoramus like his 'folks', if they are indeed that:-)
