Prince Harry and Mayor Bloomberg Have Long, Intense Conversation

So Mayor Bloomberg was in London today, which he said was to discuss the economic crisis, but according to the Times, he also paid a visit to the royal family, where he “spent about half an hour on Monday morning with Prince Harry, the third in line to the British throne.” That’s … weird. His aides claimed the two were talking about Harry’s charity, Sentebale, but we suspect that in reality Bloomberg (like us) read that Kate Middleton story in Vanity Fair this month and was trying to find out if she was a Machiavellian tartlet.
