Prince Harry is really messing up the local woman gravity field here in congress. #princeharry #DC
If all the women on Capitol Hill were dust bunnies, #princeharry would be a Dyson Vacuum. Every woman is gone. Every. Single. One.
Dear Prince Harry, you’re an hour late (still love ya, though!)
5. Then something horrible happened…
Tragedy. (Female) staffers cleared out by police. Grumpy faces
Henry C.J. Jackson
There were more Prince Harry fans here earlier — mostly young women who work at the Capitol — but they were politely to clear out.
The image of female Hill staffers being ushered away from Prince Harry and forced do things like, say, staff the principal, is delightful.
8. But OF COURSE they returned.

A second level of #princeharry watchers here. Sorry, couldn’t resist…

And so, Prince Harry left. Hallways cleared. Female staffers returned to their lives, unfulfilled dreams of being a princess.
