No sign of Harry as the Royal Family opens the Paralympics


The Queen was front-and-centre last night for the opening of the Paralympics, along with Prince Edward and his wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, Prince William and Kate and British Prime Minister David Cameron and his wife Samantha.

Notably absent from the party was Prince Harry, who has kept a low profile since the nude photo 'scandal'.

Speaking of the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate has topped Vanity Fair's International Best-Dressed List.

Prince Harry also made the list. (No word on whether there's also going to be a best undressed list.)

In a video on the Vanity Fair website, fashion and style director Jessica Diehl says: "Kate Middleton is one of the most approachable beautiful girls one could ever dream of."

I think Will and Kate enjoy each other and enjoy being normal. Harry enjoys being rich. I think Harry, should also have the name Richard attached, you know--as a moniker of course. Where he can be like his relative Richard II, who firmly believed in "royal prerogative". "Harold Richard"--hmm, I think I'll just call him Harry Di...

The boy's name is Henry, not Harold. Royal males are named for previous Regents.
