Although somewhat useful for reinforcing notions of a (royal) family with a difficult, unruly child, representations of Harry's ‘laddish’ antics were described by the journalist Antony Barnett as ‘highly embarrassing for the royal family’, and his behaviour is constructed as countering the ‘moral and respectable’ Family Firm. For example, after he smoked cannabis, one national tabloid columnist branded Harry a ‘thoroughly horrible young man’ and a ‘national disgrace’. 30 The royal

Java’s courts emerged from the seclusion of the palace to offer gifts jointly with their husbands and also in their own name. Women’s gifts were costly personal items for female members of the Dutch royal family.
