I get the same vibes - that they aren't really an item and that he is just there as the 'cover' for something else. I am not sure what that something else might be but I never get the feeling that Beatrice and Dave really are together (now watch them announce their engagement tonight Sydney time).

JMO. But couples don't need to look they're about to rip each other's clothes of 24/7 to show they're in love. Both seem to understand they're every move is watched when they're out, analysed, even lip movements are read into!

I'm really not sure how if you haven't been in company with the couple concerned it is possible to know if there is, or is not a spark...

They used to be hot and heavy the first few years of their relationship, with plenty of pap photos of them kissing and cuddling. But now they've been together for more than 9 years, the lust has dulled , at least publicly. That's rather normal.

I think Dave taking that Uber job in NYC was a good test of their depth of relationship. Beatrice could have stayed behind, and they could have gambled on a long-distance relationship. Instead, she followed him out to NYC. This shows me that she's very committed to this relationship. Dave intentions still remain a mystery, but I'd like to believe he returns her feelings.

CP Victoria will have another girl - Christina Silvia Lillian
Sofia will also have a girl - Lillian Carla Sofia

Late in the year the Cambridges will announce a third pregnancy with a second son born early in 2017

Princess Beatrice & Dave Clarke will announce their engagement mid year and marry on HM wedding anniversary in November.

Some of my thoughts for 2016:

The Netherlands:

- A third girl for Prince Carlos and Princess Annemarie
- A first son for Prince Jaime and Princess Viktoria
- A second pregnancy for Princess Maria Carolina and Albert Brenninkmeijer

- Rumours about a new love for Princess Mabel will turn out not to be true

Great Britain:

- Successful Birthday Celebrations for the Queen and Prince Philip
- A third pregnancy for the Duchess of Cambridge
- Prince Harry will go public again with Cressida Bonas, shortly followed by an engagement
- No engagement for Princess Beatrice or Princess Eugenie

Belgium:

- A first pregnancy for Prince Amedeo and Princess Elisabetta

Luxembourg:

- No pregnancy for Guillaume and Stephanie
- A second pregancy for Felix and Claire

Monaco:

- A second pregnancy for Princess Charlene
- A first pregnancy for Pierre and Beatrice Casiraghi

Norway:

- Abdication of King Harald

Sweden:

- A first son for Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel
- A first girl for Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia

Spain and Denmark:

- nothing special

I don't do predictions about health scares or anything like that and I don't want to start discussions about my predictions.
These are my personal feelings about 2016.

I don't have anything against the Harry-Cressida pairing. Personally, I would hope for Dave and Beatrice to get engaged before them, though. Dave is older than Harry, and Beatrice is older than Cressida.

Dave and Beatrice will be together for 10 years in 2016. While Harry and Cressida were only together 2 years. The BRF tends to have bad luck with quick courtships.

Successful Marriages-

~The Queen and Prince Philip. The Queen was in love with him for 8 years before marrying him.
~Charles and Camilla. Well, they had a 30+ year marathon to the altar.
~Tim and Anne. We believe they were together about 6 years before marrying. The timeline is a little vague because she was still legally married to Mark during that time.
~Edward and Sophie. Married after 6 years together.
~Peter and Autumn. Married after 5 years together.
~William and Catherine. Married after 9 years together.
~Mike and Zara. Married after 7.5 years together.

Unsuccessful Marriages-

~Mark and Anne. Married after 1 year together.
~Charles and Diana. Married after 1 year together.
~Andrew and Sarah. Married after 1 year together.

If Harry and Cressida reunite next year then I hope they won't get engaged until at least 2018. But Harry doesn't seem to be the most cautious person, so you may be right.

Giving that Princess Tatiana of Prussia, Mrs. Philip Womack has just had a child, I put in her place Princess Stephanie of Isenburg-Budingen.
Duchess of Vendome will have a boy.

Queen Margrethe will abdicate but her last act before abdication will be to reinstate coronations and then appoint herself the chief organizer of Frederik X's coronation.

And his coronation robe will be made entirely from whatever's left of the oilcloth used to make The Raincoat

Crown Princess Victoria will have a girl.

Princess Sofia will have a boy

I predict pregnancy for the Duchess of Cambridge, princess Claire of Luxembourg and Autumn Philips.

King Albert of the Belgians health will rapidly decline.

Denmark: I don't think QMII will abdicate, but I do think she will cut back on her activities, especially now that Henrik has retired. She will probably stay close to home, and let her sons and their wives do the traveling. So we will more of F&M and also J&M.
