Prince Harry Gifted Booze from Australian Air Force

Prince Harry spent a good part of 2013 traveling the world, visiting with leaders or wives of leaders or dignitaries of varying rank. During all of these stops the prince was gifted a variety of unique items as a thank you for his visit. Buckingham Palace recently released a list of the gifts the prince received, along with a notation about the gift givers in each case. Michelle Obama gave Harry a brown leather flying jacket–a thoughtful gift, and probably one the young prince will actually wear. Other U.S. dignitaries, including New Jersey Governor Chris Christie gave the prince a fleece jacket, and book and a bronze commemorative medal.

The executive director of a nonprofit youth development program in Harlem gifted Prince Harry with Harlem RBI baseball shirt and two autographed baseballs, and the USA Swimming Team was excited about giving him a blue duffle bag, pair of swimming shorts, pair of swimming goggles, swimming cap, golf balls and two novelty key rings.

This is how it went pretty much everywhere the prince visited. When he left the country he made a stop in Australia, meeting with the commanding officer of the Australia Special Air Service Regiment. He apparently thought it befitting to gift the young prince some whiskey and a flask in which to carry his booze. Of course it should be mentioned that the flask was engraved. In addition he gave Prince Harry a pair of military goggles, pair of sunglasses, baseball cap, T-shirt, tie, two cup holders and a selection of photographs.

So what do you suppose the whiskey and the flask were all about? Was it a blatant statement saying Australians know how he spent some time partying in Vegas a year or so ago? Or was it simply as assumption that all Brits like their whiskey and keep it close to them always?

Regardless of the reason behind the unusual gift, Prince Harry has some funny stories about his travels to share with his friends and future generations of the monarchy for many years to come. They will all, without a doubt, want to visit Australia when roaming the globe after they hear Harry’s tales.

    I was looking for the same information. Finally I got my answer from your post thanks for sharing this useful info.

  • Ah …. it was a cool gift?

    Let’s not over think this. If I was getting gift for someone, I would get something fun and something the person would actually enjoy. Let’s face it — the guy parties, drinks, and screws a bunch of women. I hate to tell the naive world —- every person in power does this. Have you ever seen all the high end escort services in Washington? My God, they are everywhere. Hell, the terrorists who “supposedly” did 9/11 saw a group of high-end hookers right before the did their “hijacking”. I honestly don’t believe the official story because it doesn’t make sense. Radical, fundamentalist Muslims — who screw hookers and use cocaine and who had no airplane experience and literally no flight time experience and who didn’t even know English let alone how to program the navigation systems on major airliners — hijacked four major airlines, did maneuvers our best pilots couldn’t do, were able to fly a 757 six feet off the ground at 450 knots, and perfectly hit their targets. That is bullshit. What hit the Pentagon and towers were drones painted as commercial airliners. Hell, the Pentagon plane was said to be “white”. American airlines doesn’t have white 757 planes — they have polished aluminum planes. We even have pictures of a drone that was painted to resemble and American Airlines plane and people didn’t know the difference. The g-forces alone for the Pentagon would knock a man unconscious. Hell, half the blood in the body would have rushed to the hijackers head. None of it makes sense. Talk to pilots — they will tell you.

    Sorry, I am ranting — 9/11 pisses me off because it is so obvious we are being lied to. Back to my point.

    I hate to tell America also — the rest of the world is not nearly as prudish as America. Foreigners have a hell of a lot of fun. In America, people live to work. In other countries, people work to live. They may be poorer but really they enjoy life a lot more. Hell, half the things they do, you would get ten years in prison over here. I can guarantee that Harry drank that Whiskey as soon as he could. It was a good gift.

    • @Ah …. it was a cool gift?


      Paste this in your browser. It is an excellent lecture about the Pentagon. If just 10% of what this lady says is true, we are all screwed. She echoes a lot of your sentiments. Many people have come to the same conclusions you have. Of course, no one will be 100% right because we are never shown things. But I think a lot of people have bits and pieces to the puzzle that are correct. I am a pilot. No way in hell a bunch of amateurs could fly those planes. Just look at the difference between the planes they trained on and what at 757 looks like. Common sense should kick in soon. No way in hell they flew those planes. Plus, half of them were found alive in other parts of the world.

      • Magic Passports

        That is okay. I am pissed about 911 to. For me it is the passports. Four titanium black boxes are destroyed that day due to the crash. All the terrorists are literally vaporized due to the crash. They only found bone fragments from the victims. But I am supposed to believe TWO paper passports fell out of the terrorists pockets, survived the fireball that vaporized the people, fell to the earth, and then was found by the police? You would have to be a moron to believe that. By the way they also found a bandana and a business card from the terrorists. Go out to you grill. Put a bandana and a business card over it and see how long it lasts. That is a grill. Imagine a jet fuel fireball.

        • Fear

          In my life, I have seen people so afraid they will believe whatever bullshit is said to them to escape that fear. People were afraid on 9/11 and they would have bought anything the government told them.

          There is a reason why Christ said be not afraid. When you are afraid, you make irrational decisions and anyone can fool you.
