While the Queen has always behaved with the utmost decorum, some of her family members act a lot more like you would expect people to act when they have access to almost unlimited money, palaces, drugs, and sex. Her sister, Princess Margaret, smoked 60 cigarettes a day and drank so much that it killed her ... but don't worry too much; she was 71. Their mother, who lived to a ripe old 101, had a different addiction: the ponies. She was alleged to enjoy betting on horse races so much that an MP claimed she once used the pilot's radio to place wagers while flying over the Atlantic Ocean. In her honor, probably for all the business she gave them over the years, bookmakers closed on the day of her funeral.
Currently, the big party animal is Prince Harry. At the age of 16, he did what most teenagers do and decided to experiment with drugs and alcohol. The difference was when you did it and got caught, it didn't become national news, and your dad probably didn't make you do charity work at a rehab clinic to make up for it. Four years later, he made the front page again when he showed up at a friend's "colonials and natives"-themed costume party in a Nazi uniform. In 2004, he attacked a photographer outside a nightclub. Then in 2012, we were all gifted with shots of Harry showing everything but the crown jewels (NSFW) when he played strip billiards with some women he had just met in Vegas and didn't think to take their phones from them.
Prince Philip is basically considered a national treasure because he is everyone's racist grandpa. At 95, he is old enough not to give any more fucks, but he's been like this forever. In 2002, he asked an Australian aboriginal businessman if they "still threw spears at each other." And he once asked a Scottish driving instructor how he managed to keep his pupils sober long enough to teach them. And he once pointed at a random child in a youth club and declared that he looked like he was on drugs. And ... you know what, we'll be here all day, just read them yourself.
Even the supporting characters get up to weird stuff. Princess Beatrice, a granddaughter of the Queen, was recently in the news because during a party she grabbed a sword to "knight" the singer James Blunt (as one does) and accidentally slashed singer Ed Sheeran across the face -- an event he later said he "wasn't allowed to talk about" (probably because of the kill squads I assume they have). Her father, Prince Andrew, was best buddies with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, and was accused of having sex with an underage prostitute himself. This did not go to court and was never proven, but having "friend of sex-slaver" come up when your name is googled isn't great. Even Kate Middleton brought family baggage with her when she married, in the form of her thrice-divorced uncle who was caught on camera offering cocaine and prostitutes to a reporter and bragging about his friendship with Prince William.
