jemagre I'd love to agree with you but there is a tradition of royal infidelity and "droit du seigneur" in his blood that goes back more than a thousand years. It's just how royals are. I'm afraid the odds are vastly stacked against Harry breaking the mold and making a successful love match. I expect he will know not to attempt to. I expect he will marry someone who knows the codes ...

What was generally accepted in the past does not give the "right of way" that it would be accepted in today's society by anyone royal or not. The days of men having mistresses while the wives turn a blind eye to it have gone out the window as much as the "obey" word in the marriage vows has. Personally I see Harry as very much the settling down type and really enjoying his wife and especially his children. Harry is still only 26 and very much involved with his military service and like normal young men, grabbing the world by the horns. I will be very surprised if he doesn't make a genuine love match like his brother is.

Jemagre and Osipi I do hope you are right regarding Our Harry - but Osipi those days are no way long gone. Look at politicians, academics, businessmen, scientists - highly successful middle-class men very commonly have mistresses, let alone royals. Wives tend to look the other way so they can retain the privileges of being the wife.

Are you condoning extramarital relationships just because they are royal? Royal or not, extramarital relationships are unacceptable!! Unbelievable. This is the 21st century. People should be allowed to marry whom they chose and whom they love! Sheesh! What a thing to say!!!!

Of course it still happens in every aspect of society but I don't feel that in anyway it is accepted as a "normal" expectation in a marriage nor is it they way a certain group of people are expected to be with "codes". Even with Charles and Diana's marriage as much as it later has been dubbed an "arranged" marriage, it was never that way to begin with. I really think that over the years we're going to see royal couples that are totally devoted to each other such as the Queen and the DoE are now and Victoria and Albert were in history. The main difference now is that young royals are encouraged to marry for love rather than anything else.

What an unbelievable statement. Honestly! Yes, unroyal but obviously in love. So I suppose the other European weddings: Denmark, Spain, Norway, Netherlands and Sweden were unroyal as well. Honestly!!

Ouch! Wherever did you get the idea that Prince William is sweetly UNroyal and. as such, is destined to marry someone with whom he has a "deep connection" whilst Harry is to be condemned in advance to at best to a convenient, loveless marriage, and at worst to become a sleazy womaniser and serial adulterer who would marry without love and expect said loveless spouse to quietly accept a cold, hard-hearted, callous cad for a husband?

Worse, that this somehow confers the honour of having "smarts" for doing so!

Hells bells, whatever has Harry done to merit such bile?

I reckon Harry will end up marrying the most "normal" girl ever in the Royal Family, nothing aristocratic, nobel, no royal connections etc, just an "average", private citizen (maybe not from the UK) & that'll be fine. Maybe she'll come from a rich family, maybe she won't but I do see him ending up with someone who in a traditional, old sense would not normally be considered royal marriage material

I actually think Harry seems more down to earth than William although they're both very modern guys.

The Anglican view is simple and does not hold many tenets. Tenets are to do with belief if you understand anything to do with anything to do with religion whatever it is to you.

A lack of understanding is not easy to adapt to. It is inadequate and why it only holds stature in one country in europe. It is inadequate along with interpretation of holy cathlocism (which is not the same as Roman Catholicism) which is true catholicism and bridges the gap between the first and second bible. The Church of Ireland along with some Orthodoxian view understand and appreciate the difference.

It is up to you to educate yourself with elders. You lack yourself and it is why you show your lack of yourself. You simply are not good enough to make any decision in relation to religion. Deferentiate and Educate !

Duke.

Wow you just boosted religious intolerance up another peg. To assume I have not studied other religions? That I am ignorant of the beliefs and systems of other churches? Where did you come by this conclusion. Just because I did not copy and paste some three paragraph rant from a theology site to sound like I am educated, and instead sound like some intolerant judgemental religious nut, doesn't mean I have no understanding of other religions. Perhaps I don't know every little basic fact of every religion, but I pride myself in being open to them all. I have gone to passover and Chanakah celebrations, I have gone to Dwali and though I have never, if my Muslim friends invited me to Ramadan, I'd happily go. I think it is far more important to be open to learning, or at least embracing other religions, then it is to be able to sound like some theology text.

You would not have to learn every religion, a woman who married Harry, would have to learn 1. And as anyone who converted to another religion, she'd recieve conversion classes before hand. And while yes there is a difference between catholocism and the church of England, it would still be easier to adopt the differences, then to change from say being muslim.

I can see the British people accepting it, and if Harry is made happy by this girl the Queen will allow the marriage to take place. If HM didn't want Alice as a granddaughter0-in-law Harry could give up his place in line for the throne.

But I ask again, where did anyone say she was going to marry Harry?
Hmm....I wonder where I may have got the idea? Could It be perhaps because her name was brought up, on a thread for possible brides for Harry?

Iluvbertie posted to article for ladies who may "fit the bill"; nobody ever specifically said "I want Alice Dellal to marry Henry" did they now?

Yes I know some on this list a male and some are married but some aren't.

I mean in the most stereotypical, old-fashioned traditional sense of the usual types of women who married into the Royal Family. Women from certain upstanding/aristocratic families, women from a certain class/upbringing who went to the "right" schools & engage in the "right" behaviour that befits future princesses & all that really old, out-dated stuff they used to insist upon for any & all members of the Royal Family when considering a wife. I say I don't see Harry following that line as a total mark of positivity too as I think it's nonsense to only be "allowed" to marry certian people from a certain background/upbringing etc.

I just see Harry not being bothered by where the person has come from but more who they are & whether he/they are happy & I think the Royal Family has modernised enough to also not be bothered by it & just let him marry whoever he chooses (& especially since by the time Harry will marry he'll probably have slipped down the line of succession with William probably/hopefully having kids by then). Total speculation but I just see him marrying basically a potential "anybody", not someone who necessarily grew up in the usual Royal bride environments or went to posh schools etc, just some normal, average, could be any of us type of person who just makes him happy. Maybe I'm just being silly but I can see him marrying someone who is literally the girl the next door, could have worked Tesco's, totally down to earth type thing, not necessarily someone brought up in all the usual Upper class environments etc that usually Royal brides tend to come from.

Except IMO, none of the most recent royal brides have been the stereotypical old fashioned usual royal marriage material.

Catherines parents have earned their money, and have no titles and no provable links to royalty. St Andrews is a very good university, but anyone can get into it, if you can afford the fees.
Autumn Kelly has no title, I don't think her family is that rich and again no links to royalty.
Sophie has the traditional royal wife thing of keeping quiet and looking good, but she has a wavy background with again no money or title.
Sarah well I think you can see what i'm going to say.
Diana, was the daughter of an Earl and had possible links to royalty and the only traditional thing was that her marriage was one of convenience.

I can understand what you are saying, however, I don't think William, Peter or Edward cared about where their brides came from but they married them for who they are like you suggested. Every recent groom has chosen his own bride, they haven't been forced into an arranged marriage to some foreign princess etc.

Autumn, Kate, Sophie and even Sarah didn't grow up in the royal bride environments, they lived normal lives they worked for the money they earnt, they obviously aren't spoiled brats etc.

Could you give me a list of the "usual royal brides"?

And yet, that was not the post I quoted was it. It were the posts which singled her out from the list. And when you single out Alice Dellal, in a thread about Harry's future wife, you give the perception of naming her as a possible wife, whether you intend to or not.

Actually, you can go to St Andrews providing you make the grades and don't mind taking out student loans which many people would need to do for any other university.

Completely agree with the second part. Everyone should be able to marry for love and most modern Royal families recognize that.

Warren removed the post you quoted, so I don't know which one you quoted. However if it was the one where MRSJ asked if Alice Dellal was Alex Dellals brother, then that still has no suggestion that someone wants Harry to marry her?

You can, however if someone is of the usual "royal marriage type", she will be able to afford going without the loans.

I didn't mean to imply that other Royals who've married/plan to marry in recent times have married these stereotypical "traditional" Royal brides. Of course as you point out mostly the recent brides have been fairly normal & in a traditional royal bride sense maybe atypical as they were not aristocracy or nobility etc, they've still been perhaps more on the "posher" end of the "normal" citizen scale (if you want to call it that...they were all mainly more well-to-do/wealthy, able to send their kids to good private schools, mixing with aristocracy & those around them but not aristocracy themselves etc). What I mean to say is that I think Harry may go even further from that old-fashioned idea of the stereotypical royal bride, further from it than any other royal family member has done.

Kind of like how Zara is marrying basically just your average bloke, yes he's a famous rugby player but he's basically an all round, nice average bloke, went to school, did jobs like working in a chippy (supposedly he'll be the 1st ever member of RF that's ever held a job like that), found something he was good at & has made a name & successful life out of it. I see Harry going along that sort of route, marrying some girl that literally is as far from the old stereotype of a future princess as has ever been. Not to say that everyone else has been marrying that old stereotype but that Harry will be the one who really does go far, far from it. It'll literally be some girl no-one knows from the social circles, not known within high society etc, no-one who you could put on a list of "potential wives" etc, a complete unknown entity. Anyway, just my impression of him, so total speculation/imagination on my part.
