Yes, it's nice to see an aristocrat being useful. I remember, not personally, that landed, wealthy aristos and royalty contributed much to archaeology, art, music, and many cultural things that we continue to enjoy for hundreds of years. I think I've wondered on this board before if any royal has become a legitimate professional and expert in something, not just living a vapid almost Eurotrash life of parties, fashion, and travel. I'd wished Harry would become something, but he clearly does not have the brain power to be much of anything. If only he'd discovered a passion he could turn into something legit, like Princess Margaret's son did. Although, I have heard he is not the best business man.
Harry should have been tracked to go into the trades, or helped to find something he was actually good at. But of course, he'd have to have motivation and an understanding of himself. He seems to have neither.
Earl Spencer must be doing some things right because he can hold on to his family's very old and very must-be-expensive-to-keep-up estate and is a historian, too.
Yes, he is both.
