What it’s worth

A cautionary tale comes to us courtesy of www.popbitch.com - so it must be true. Apparently a reveller at a "colonialists and natives" party took some snaps, mostly of William Saxe-Coburg Gotha, to the Sun - who noticed the one Harry pic and smartly paid £8000 to the dimwit, who signed away the copyright. They have now re-sold that one pic for over £500,000; the Mail alone paid £50,000 to use it the next day.
