British high society looks more and more like Entourage each week. In the latest episode, princes William and Harry enjoy a wild weekend in Paris watching the Rugby World Cup Final.

Starting Saturday, the royal duo kick off a "lads' weekend," taking two male friends with them and leaving girlfriends Kate Middleton and Chelsy Davy to fend for themselves while they support England in a match against South Africa (that old skirmish!). And thanks to complimentary tickets from the English Rugby authorities, the royals don't pay a pound for the privilege.

By cheering for the English, though, the duo disses its Welsh subjects (after all, Wales is still smarting a bit from its first match-up with England back in the 13th century). Harry and William are, you'll remember, both titled "Prince of Wales." Asked for their last name, they use Wales. William is even the Vice Royal Patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, whose members will surely take umbrage with Sunday morning's tabloid pictures of the Princes urging on the English at the Stade de France.
