Right Royal Stuffups

1. "Britain's gaffe-prone royal family"
"Prince Harry, 20-year-old grandson of the queen, apologized on Thursday
 after a photo of him wearing Nazi symbols at a party provoked outrage.
 Here are some other embarrassing moments involving Britain's royal family"

2. "Portrait of a prince with vegetable and insect"
"It is titled Homo sapiens, Lepidum sativum and Calliphora vomitoria, which
 roughly translates as a portrait of the Duke of Edinburgh as the artist
 sees him"

3. "Queen is exposed to Highland game"
"[U]nlike his comrades, he hadn't taken the time to adjust his sporran and
 kilt for decency"

4. "Princess Anne's dog to see shrink"
"Princess Anne will send her dog to an animal psychologist to avoid having
 it euthanized after it attacked a royal maid and fatally mauled one of the
 Queen beloved corgis"

5. "Prince Edward scolded"
"Like many a commoner before him, His Royal Highness Prince Edward, Earl of
 Wessex, was scolded by police for ignoring the strict pedestrian code on
 upscale Belle Meade Boulevard"
