14. Racist?
I hope you're willing to back that up.

The kid was born into the Royal Family -- he didn't sign up for it and he didn't marry into it so it's pretty hard to justify faulting him for being rich and sheltered. Look, he lost his mother, with whom he was very close, when he was a teenager. The press doesn't give him a minute's privacy and he's hounded by them 24/7. He has no choice of profession, it was bequeathed on him at birth. What a terrible predicament -- talk about no choices. Maybe we could have a little compassion for him and not withhold our compassion because of the size of his inherited bank account.
