Funny how they shut down the comments. Hmmm. Anywho...
Compared to the current Harry? For the times, Old Harry's* behavior was
scandalous; for the times, Lady Alice was
"long in the tooth." I don't really think you can compare then with now. All four of the sons of GV and Mary were colossally screwed up in their ways, and fueled further by the "racy" times they lived in.
However, despite the "for the time" qualifier, and the suggestion that Old Harry's behavior was "worse," it doesn't really excuse the current Prince Harry's stupid behavior. Time to grow up, Harry!
Two somewhat related thoughts:
1) Old Henry resembled his brother Albert (aka George VI) very strongly, very dorky and awkward facial features. QM's genes, fortunately, fizzled out in the males of the family; can't say the same for the females (Elizabeth, Anne, Louise). Old Henry's son William was devastatingly handsome, son Richard inherited the dorky looks... but Richard's children and grandchildren are some seriously handsome folks.
2) Old Henry's arrogance in his treatment of the hired help continues in full swing in the current generation of royals (remember Charles and the pee bottle?). Some things never change.
________________________________*Yes, DM commenter, Henry of Gloucester was indeed called "Harry," particularly by his father. In public, he was not. It would likely have been considered "disrespectful" in certain quarters and (again) in those days.
