Nazi royal pic sparks outrage



'Offensive' ... the painting that has shocked many

A PAINTING ridiculing the Royal Family has sparked outrage among monarchists.

The picture, that is currently showing as part of an exhibition at a gallery in Amsterdam, depicts Prince Harry as a Nazi and the late Princess Diana as Christ.

Tory MP David Ruffley said: "This seems to be a pathetic and tasteless attempt at art by a man with no talent.

"People on the continent are just jealous of our Royal Family and the Queen being a beacon of decency for the Western World."

Sun royal snapper Arthur Edwards slammed the artists work.

He said: "It is demeaning of the Royal family. Some of the images are just awful.

"Anyone who has any connection with the Royal Family will find it offensive."

But Gallery the 3rd owner Mr Maarten de Vlieger defended the work.

He said: "Everyone we've shown this painting to has been very excited about it so we don't see it as a problem.

"Prince Harry is the one responsible for being a Nazi as he dressed up like that in England two years ago and there is no way we will be withdrawing it."

Mr de Vlieger said he was considering showing the painting in the UK later this year.

Clarence House refused to comment on the matter.

Don't worry. We'll just paint a similar one of the Dutch Royal Family.

It captures their likeness. Good composition. I think itís worthy of the Royal Gallery.

Brits are too thin skinned. They need to lighten up. That includes you, blackleaf.

Typical juvenile stuff put out by 'artists.' Some of the flakes still insist the first goal of art is to shock. Well, if you're marginally talented, a tad goofy, and looking for attention this is a no-brainer. Just do something bold and voila - you're bonafide!
If you're in for tit for tat, maybe we could commission a series of paintings of the Dutch pushing their Jewish neighbours onto death trains in WWII given the country lost a greater percentage of its Jewish population than any other. We could put swastikas on the bullies and cretinous grins. Should work.

I think there is a difference in taste when it comes to Harry's Nazi uniform gag and mass murder. Lets not compare the two.

I dressed up as a pirate for halloween... So I guess putting me on the sex offenders registry as a rapist and putting me down as a thief in police reports are justified (Rape and Pillage).

Or you know, he's a kid who went to a halloween party, let it go.

Egg Zachery. I've seen kids dress up as Satan. So, Hitler or some Nazi is worse than what Satan is sposed to be? Gimme a break.
Damn funny pic.

People make a big deal about something that didn't hurt anyone. So what if he dressed up like a Nazi? There are more important things going on in the world then some stupid teen dressing up like Hitler.
