It wouldn't matter who he married....there'd be a good chance that he was related to them in some way, given you could trace their family history back far enough (for many, that wouldn't really be all that far).

Quite true, however, they are related. They both trace back to John of Gaunt.

Maybe a lieutenant, but a major?? By the time most women career officers hit major, they'd be old enough to be Harry's mother, or big sister at least. Not too many majors (men or women) in their early to mid 20's, not unless they're exceptional and there has been a promotional pathway open to them.

Perfect antidote for the paparazzi, Harry's chopper training. Nothing beats a paparazzi better than a hellfire missile shot up the rear end

Or a few slugs of 30mm....a "lead diet" to slow them down a bit

If that's the case, Harry had better go find himself a nice African or Asian girl to marry, because if he doesn't marry a cousin, no matter how distant, that'll exclude the vast majority of eligible woman in the UK and Europe. For instance would he marry an 18th cousin, because there's a great deal of them walking around, and not just in the UK.

In actual fact, if marrying a distant cousin carried that big a stigma, no one would get married. Too close a cousin, yes, but not two people who's last common ancestor was 200 or more years ago.

Depends how old he is when he gets married

There are tons of people related to John of Gaunt. But in this instance I believe the relation is a little closer than going back that far.

Everyone in the world are pretty much distant distant … cousins. Most people don’t even know their distant cousins unless they are really into geneaolgoy. Like William and Kate probably didn’t know they had a common ancestor. Sarah Palin probably didn't know she was distantly related to Princess Diana until some geneolgiers traced her family way back and found a common ancestor between the two.

It is, however I took it back to the next common royal denominator, so to speak

Ann Gascoigne....the wife of Sir Thomas Fairfax (1475-1520) is the common ancestor of direct royal descent. They're 15th cousins along this particular line.

You can also take the line back through Lionel of Antwerp as well (John's older brother). There are a number of paths back to Edward III.

Well, if he was 30, the major would be in her mid to late 50's

How about;
Princess Elizabeth of Thurn und Taxis, Lady Eloise Anson, The Hon Alexandra Knatchbull?
I am watching the Wives for William program and getting ideas.

I don't understand this.

Most people make major in their 30s or early 40s. So if Harry married someone in the military in his 30s he would probably be a major himself so would be marrying someone of equal rank and similar age.

If he does marry a military woman, would she have to give up her career? It would be a bit unfair if he was allowed to keep his.

Thats a good question. It is not like she would be working for a PR firm like Sophie was. Then again I think it would depend on the nationality of the girl he was marrying. I think if she were from the UK then it would be okay. On the other hand if she were American probably not. Then again the public reportedly wants a smaller family so who knows what they may think.

It would depend on what her job was, for instance if his wife was sent to the Afghanistan, she might not be allowed.

I agree. So then their will be fresh debate about all of that. For all we know though she could serve there or in another war zone prior to her marriage.

Not necessarily. It depends on many factors: If they see action, how long and well they serve, what branch of the military they serve in. What their job is. I know officers who are well into their 30's and are still Sgt.s
However, I don't get the impression Harry would go the military route.

I agree (not that I know him of course!) I could perhaps see him dating/marrying a relative of a fellow officer, someone from a military family like the sister of someone he served with or daughter of someone he trained with etc. But that is complete & utter speculation/imagination on my part. I mostly see him meeting girls in bars, polo matches & society types, lol!

If he had his eye on a major now....by the time he turned 30 or so, she would be going on 50 or so.

You'll usually find that despite all the talk about equality between men and women in the armed forces, it's the men that get most the plum jobs and earlier promotions. Many of the women that make major are older than their male counterparts and usually stay at that rank for longer.

Harry would be better off "nabbing" a lieutenant or a young captain in the next few years. He won't stay a lieutenant for very long. That way he'll find someone around his own age or maybe a tad older. An older lady might just keep him on the level, curb some of his more boyish ways
