Don't whine Harry, just stay nice and naughty.

Byline: Carole Malone SHE TELLS IT LIKE IT IS Email

SO what about Prince Harry? OK, he's funny, he's brave and he's served his country on the frontline like no other member of the Royal Family ever has.

And yes, the British people adore him precisely because of his drinking, his womanising and his unerring knack of getting involved in THE most monumental cock-ups.

But I'm afraid talking about "taking people out" in Afghanistan was a cock-up too far. It's not how any soldier, let alone a prince, should talk about killing people.

And his attitude towards the Press does him no credit either, because whenever he gets a hard time (not just in the Brit papers, but around the world) it's usually because of some outlandish scrape that is 100 per cent HIS fault.

In those interviews last week Harry talked about the three parts of him... the soldier, the Prince and the man he is behind closed doors.

Well if he kept his antics behind closed doors with people he trusts and didn't strip naked in hotels where hordes of strangers are brandishing mobile phones - what he does WOULD stay private.

And yes, he's right in saying there is no privacy any more. At least not in hotels, in bars or at parties when everyone (not the Press but people he knows) can put everything they see on Twitter and on the internet in seconds.

Harry's a good guy, but he needs to guard against coming across as whingeing and self-pitying.

Because there's nothing in his life that warrants self-pity.

SCIENTISTS reckon headaches could be triggered by thunderstorms. Mine aren't. They're triggered by too many glasses of Pinot Grigio.
