All I can say is, until Harry gets with a serious girlfriend again (we can assume he is dating under-the-radar right now) - who he is willing to openly declare to the world - Chelsy (and Cressida) will be dogged by the paps. Reason enough to think 2 and 3 and 4 times before hitching up with Harry. Has to be a drawback for Harry.

Thank you, Mirabel. Wonder what she is planning?

It wouldn't surprise me at all if she showed up on an episode of Downton

I checked and found this:


Chelsy Davy waves good-bye to Allen & Overy - and the law? - Legal Cheek


So it does look like Chelsy has given up on a career in law.

Many thanks, Mirabel. Maybe she intends to go home to South Africa?

Well, after reading the article I must say Prince Harry is well rid of her for two reasons:
1) This confirms what I suspected during the relationship which was that she or her friends or family were spinning their side of events to the press. The writer begins by referencing an email she has received from Cressy, so Cressy is currently courting the press. The Royal family suffered tremendously from Diana's habit of leaking skewed versions or half truths or even outright lies to the press. William was old enough to see the suffering his mother caused by her press salvos and to be wounded himself by her actions, and as a result has been inordinately cautious with the press and protective of his privacy. Harry, younger and thus perhaps less aware of the crisis his mother caused through her press shenanigans has been less cautious. Harry simply is well rid of a press seeking GF, look at the 'she's better than him' vibe of this piece - it truly reads like the earliest stages of the war of the Wales.
2) The article states that Cressida "[k]nocks back rum straight because that's how she rolls, Hard." And that she "[s]wigs booze from bottles, does shots..." Frankly a hard drinking 20 something is tolerated but tends not to age well. Moreover, given Harry's own hard partying lifestyle it would be best if he didn't settle down with someone also exhibiting signs of possible issues with alcohol.

Rather ironically, after the description of Cressida as a shot drinking booze swigging smoking hard rolling type the writer faults Harry for only being a party loving Prince. Ignored, of course, are Harry's 2 tours of duty in combat zones, his triumph organizing the Invictus games, his work with Sentebale traveling to Lesotho and tirelessly promoting it including the second Chelsea garden he's just helped to design honoring his charity. His foundation with his brother and sister in law, his walking with the wounded participation, his work for his grandmother and his full time job with the military.
The writer opines that until Harry earns an accolade better than 'party Prince' Cressida will always be more impressive than him and that Cressida "stands for something more than herself."
The writer doesn't enlighten us as to what that is -presumably it is the sum total of 'hard rolling' Cressida's accomplishments as outlined in the article to wit: playing a wolf in an obscure play, a bit part in Tulip Fever - not yet released, a video for Mulberry to be on it's website and being flown on their dime to some parties in LA and forming a small acting group with unnamed friends.
While Cressida may well have a successful screen career, I humbly suggest that it's premature to do as the writer does and call her the new Queen of Hearts.

Well said. I'm disgusted by all this... and very happy that Harry could move on and rid of Cressida...

The shot at Kate at the end seems unnecessary.

Quote: "And also why, unlike Kate, Cressida feels important-as a modern, go-getting young woman."

Oh brother. Let me know if scrunchie comes back.

I looked at the IMBD page for Tulip Fever. She is listed between a woman who plays a serving woman and a guy who plays boat driver with a guy with no role listed directly above her. It's a totally bit part.

She seems to still be living in London so I'm not sure about that. I guess time will tell. What do you think she would do in South Africa?

Boy did Harry dodge a bullet!! I read both articles and if Cressidas camp approved them......you can tell they're upset she didn't get a ring on that particular finger. It was very mean spirited.

Its a dog eat dog world in the entertainment publicity business and this article put Harry in Milkbone underwear. Its more to paint the picture of just how wonderful and glorious Cressy is and gets her name out there so she becomes known and sought after than really having anything to do with her relationship with Harry that has been put in the ancient history files.

Whereas Cressida needs the publicity to gain a fan base, Harry doesn't. What Harry is doing is for the good of his sovereign, his country and his people and hers is for her own career.

Be a lawyer. Get married. Raise a family. Live. It's her family's home, not so?

Yes, I meant career-wise. It says she studied Economics at the University of South Africa before she moved to London to get her law degree. So maybe she will try a career with that?

Totally agree. If cressida held out any hope of getting back with Harry this just threw it out the window. It actually sounded much like a gossipy friend trying to slander their best friends ex but this isn't just a circle of friends. This article is going out to millions of people. This may give cressida some advantage in Hollywood but I doubt she'll be making any friends in the royal circle now. I wouldn't be surprised if Eugenie keeps her distance from cressida now too. I know I wouldn't be too happy if one of my friends talked smack about my cousin, whether it be true or not.

Is the idea that because she resigned from one position she is leaving the legal profession? Maybe she just wants a different kind of lawyering. Or is there a reason that is not in the cards? Has she said?

Perhaps she is at a cross roads. New career and perhaps single life for a while?

Interested to know what she does next. I thought she was the spark that ignited the royals, back in the day she was with Henry.

Couldn't agree more. If only this apparent character attack and media spills by her camp stopped, she would gain more traction (respectability wise). She has the fame she needs, use it for her career and let the past go.

Makes me wonder if the breakup so so nasty on his side or that the family hopes were so severely disappointed? Or both?

If she has talent, use it and the fame and let the rest go.

Oh I totally agree. Back then she wasn't controversial or "bad" she was fun and Harry seemed to love that about her. He also seemed a lot happier at that time, to me anyway. I think she would've been good for the royal family. I don't believe just because you marry into it you need to become a stick in the mud-robot. Yes you have to act a certain way, that's to be expected but you don't have to give up your natural zest for life and loving life. Take queen maxima for example, she's always smiling, laughing and genuinely having a good time. I could see Chelsy being that for the RF not another Fergie as some people on here suggest. Fergie a whole other barrel of apples altogether.

As for her career, I guess we'll see. She may very well go back to SA to practice law there. I know being away from home and what you're used to/like can be hard. Maybe she misses SA too much? And for her bf Charles Goode, I don't know, they seemed like a good match but who knows? People change. I'd be interested to see if they're still together in a couple of months.

I think back in the day of Chelsy and Harry the only thing bad that could be said of her is that sometimes she showed up looking like a hot mess. The Royal wedding outfit as a example.
