If you see a royal mess of traffic on the streets today, remember that Prince Harry is in town for the weekend. Before he hits the polo field tomorrow, he'll be making the rounds in Manhattan later today. But after his visits to Ground Zero, the British Garden, the Veterans Affairs Medical Center and Harlem, there allegedly won't be any parties. Even TIME magazine made note of it, saying, "With those engagements in mind, the royal heartthrob, who has a well-known penchant for long, alcohol-fueled nights, won't be hitting New York City's dance floors." The prince's private secretary told them, "Quite frankly I think he will be cream-crackered and will want a good night's kip." Translation please? If the 24-year-old ginger prince wants a drink, however, one transplant from Great Britain told the Daily News, "We'd love to have him for some drinks. Tell him drinks on me." He may just take up the offer, being a recessionista and taking commercial flights here (though the Queen paid for the $40,000 trip out of pocket because "it's not a full-fat royal trip").
