Although I don't like it, I think you are spot on.
Cressida (or her family) presented herself as a shy type who disliked publicity. But her actions after the split with Harry don't support this image at all.

You must admit though she would have been an exceptionally attractive princess.

I might sound old-fashioned, but marrying an European aristocrat as in the old days would be the best for Harry IMHO provided, of course, that they genuinely liked each other (I'm not talking an arranged marriage here).

I disagree... I think someone down to earth and willing to work hard and be as normalizing a force as possible is important. A Sophie or a Kate type.

Cressida would have been quite a lovely princess though, true.

"Chelsy Forever" says she was in SA a couple of weeks ago.

There is nothing in Cressida's demeanor that would ever convince me that she is as conniving as you say. She fell for him and was giving up her life and ambitions for him when he (apparently it was his choice) walked away.

She has moved on and made the best of what he dealt her. That's being mature, not ambitious or conniving. :flowers

" . . . he has to have chased her a bit . . . who knows? We can suppose, but we can't state our opinion as fact.

How young is is 'very young'? Cressida is 26 now! Young people can vote, drive, drink, and die for their country before the age of 21. Are they all just too stupid to know what they are doing or, is it just pretty, blonde, rich and trendy lass's dating royals that are 'young' in their mid twenties?

Something is going on here!

Notice the comment by one of the posters:
"I noticed a PR company released a statement that she'd be at the party. Does that mean Chelsy now has a PR person, keeping her in the press? Her attendance at this event was announced by a PR company , very interesting."

Mm...She quits her job and seems more comfortable with press coverage, he quits his job and has a gap year...Mm...

Very interesting indeed.

The restaurant would have a PR company working for their relaunch. Chelsy is a lawyer that nothing that you would need a pr firm for unless you were also a politician.

She's been shot out again. These latest photos are not her usual. She is not hiding or unhappy.

I'm telling you, SOMETHING IS UP!!!

Lots more on Getty Images. Just look how her attitude has changed towards the photographers. This is NOT normal for her.

She was actually back in London for a wedding, hence the hair and nail appointment. I'm not sure who's wedding it was but they held it at the Duke of Northumberland's home and Chelsy went along with Cressida's brother and his girlfriend Irene.

And yes her father is very wealthy, owns a lot of land and a hunting business. She has always been used to the finer things in life such as driving a Mercedes, living in a high rise condo throughout college with her brother, lots of vacations and flying back and forth to visit Harry. A lot. When they were dating.

Cressida would have been quite a lovely princess though, true.

She would have been trouble. Cressida wants an acting career and would've always resented Harry if she didn't get a chance to do it. I believe it would've ended in divorce just like his mother and father. Cressida was good in the time being but not true princess material.

I agree, AfricanAussie. She's slimmed down and her clothes are even different. Yes, she's fine with the camera and is even playing to the camera. She's proving she has changed and can now handle it. Interesting.

My opinion is bothering you too much. Head banging? Men chase women. It's a given.

Anyway, Cressida is back with her old boyfriend (apparently) so all are back in their places. You can breath easy. Harry has been saved from the fate of Cressida.

She was younger when she came to Harry. Anyway, not a big deal. How many times have I seen people argue that Princess Diana was a victim of the BRF because of her youth. Guess the same brush cannot be used for Cressida.

Oh well.

Yes very good for Jecca! Such a pretty girl.

Side note: (because he was also in the article) James Middleton should make his own line of beard wax, shampoo etc. Maybe that would finally be a business of his that would get off the ground.

I am predicting a wedding attendance in the future by the Cambridges and perhaps some association between the couples with work on conservation.

How cool is that eh?

The Princes both seem kind of hands on. Real hands on, so sure that's fine with distance apart, but it would get old and could leave one a little too rough around the edges holding the tip of the iceberg. lol. So, the ex's are ex's. There is only so much one can tolerate and making up for distance might just be the time apart between them that left them all parting ways. 45 minutes without pay is too much for any hard working individual and they all had to work to keep things going, but, it just didn't add up between them. lol. There are just some things some couples cannot tolerate. I have never had interest in either though, either. Too much prestige comes with them and too much limelight.
