Totally agree Osipi.

Sounds like Prince Harry is following his father's dating ways. I don't see Harry marrying until he is in is late thirties.

Hmmm, could be, but since his interview I had the impression, that he´s getting a bit nervous finding the right woman (any time soon).

Has Prince met his King as Harry woos Saturdays star Mollie?
Quote:
Friends of The Saturdays singer Mollie King insist she and Prince Harry are casually dating, even though the pair have declined to comment on rumours of their budding romance. Now I can report that the couple have met on at least two occasions at Public nightclub in Chelsea where they danced the night away with the Prince’s pal Guy Pelly.

So are they just friends? Or could this be a future princess because one minute they may be friends and the next developing a romance, maybe harry's future wife could be amongst his inner circle.

I think I heard recently that The Saturdays have been having a break but are now getting back together to record new material. These stories wouldn't have anything to do with that I'm sure.

I sense the sarcasm, but I don't think it has anything to do with new records. A story about Harry meeting Mollie has more impact on Mollie herself than the records her band produce.

That must have been a sight to behold: Harry, the girl plus Guy Pelly as a kind of triplets for a whole night dancing the blues....

Mollie King Laughs Off Prince Harry Dating Rumors
Quote:
British pop star Mollie King, has coyly denied rumors that the two are an item – but one of her bandmates is pressing for a connection to the Royals for a different reason. "No, no," King, laughing, told a BBC reporter when asked if she were dating the prince.
Prince Harry 'wants reunion with ex'
Quote:
Prince Harry is reportedly avoiding rumours that he's romancing singer Mollie King in a bid to win back his ex Chelsy Davy. The 27-year-old royal is reported to be dating The Saturdays singer King after the pair met at a polo match back in 2010. Sources say Harry is eager to go along with the rumours in a bid to reconcile with his former girlfriend. "It can't do Harry's ego any harm to be linked to such a gorgeous girl," an insider told British magazine more! "I wouldn't be surprised if he's using the rumours about Mollie to help Chelsy make up her mind and commit to him."

The Prince Harry effect: Mollie King is the new ambassador for Aspinal of London (and even has £450 handbag named after her)
Quote:
It seems Aspinal of London and Prince Harry share the same taste in women. The luxury brand hired the young Royal's 'ex-girlfriend' Florence Brudenell-Bruce as the face of their Spring/Summer campaign. Now they have signed his latest rumoured flame Mollie King - and even named a handbag after her.
It increasingly looks like a publicity stunt to boost Mollie's image. In any case, I do hope Harry is not dating her; say what you want about Chelsy, but she at least never courted press and exploited her royal connections.

And how exactly is Mollie doing that? Just because Aspinals are rumoured to have taken her on, does not mean she asked them to or said "look I'm also rumoured to be dating Prince Harry, fancy giving me a job". One she does not need btw.

But has Mollie come out and categorically denied it? Not as far as I can see. She's been pretty deliberately vague about the whole thing.

This has all the hallmarks of a publicity stunt for Mollie/The Saturdays and Aspinals. I'd never heard of her before and had never seen any Aspinals handbags until this whole thing was splashed across the Daily Mail. Without the Harry angle do you really think the papers would be writing about one of the girls from a mediocre girl band becoming the 'face' of a niche luxury fashion brand? Of course not.

Certainly not. That doesn't mean you can blame it all on Mollie. The bag and the ambassador thing are rumours, Aspinals apparently hired another rumoured girlfriend of Harry's a few months back Florence something, just because she had a whiff connection to Harry. Surely it's them jumping a bit too heavy on the bandwagon. Depending upon your age you may not have heard of The Saturdays. But they're a popular teen girl band who have made quite a few top ten hits, even a few No1s I believe. I don't see why anyone would go out and buy a Saturdays single just because a member was supposedly dating a Prince. I like the band and the only member I knew the name of was Una Healy as she's just had a baby with a welsh rugby player I think.
I believe all royal relationships real or not are never confirmed or denied, with the exception of Miss Jecca.

When you stop and really think about it, I don't think any woman that was in any way seriously in a relationship with Harry would dare to put her name to a commercial venture. IMO that would be a very big no no especially should that woman be aspiring to be a future princess and working royal for the BRF.

Interesting idea. So a potential (as in aspiring) future princess shouldn't put her name to a commercial venture. This means that she cannot be working for a commercial firm or be running her own business. Any link with a commercial venture is a problem. This could be extended to her parents, siblings, etc. Look at the problems faced by the Middletons.

This is why it is so so hard for Prince Harry to start and develop a relationship. And the older he gets it will become more difficult because there is very little chance that his future wife will have no commercial links. A case in point is Sophie Wessex who was running her own business when she met Prince Edward.

So that leaves women who have never worked and have a wealthy background or perhaps professionals such as doctors/nurses. Maybe even foreign royalty - but when would he meet them?

And what family would want the media crawling all over their family history/background and financial status anyway! No privacy at all.

It's not going to be easy for him.

Perfect answer. Catherine would have been out, as would Sophie, even Diana as she worked for a nursery.

Chelsy was potentially one of the worst candidates Harry could have married, particularly because of her fathers rumoured connections. A woman who has a bag named after her and becomes an ambassador for a global company is a good thing in my view. However Aspinals have seemingly chosen Miss King because of her attachment to Harry or announced it at a really bad time.

Actually, I think that’s too simple. I believe a future wife for Harry would be able to have a job, it’s just that the success of her job should not depend on her association with the BRF. It should be an „anonymous” job so to speak and not one in the public...

Oh yes. Despite when she marries she'll have to give it up.
Mollie King can not put the success of her band down to PH, nor can Chelsy put her law degree down to him either.

I really think it is that simple which is the problem. As soon as anyone becomes a serious candidate (if I can put it that way) she will have to stop commercial work. Any new business, increased profit etc will be linked to the BRF. No escaping that at all.

If she is a cross between Mother Teresa and Florence Nightingale then she just might be able to carry on working - oh yes, and an orphan with absolutely no wider family.

Had she categorically denied it, I would be minded to believe there was truth in it. She'd be wanting to protect her and Harry's privacy for as long as possible. The fact that she hasn't, to me seems to suggest she and Aspinal are quite happy for the articles to keep popping up speculating about it all.

I'm 27 so I know who The Saturdays are, although I probably wouldn't recognise any of them if I passed them in the street, until now. Fact is, they haven't had any new material out for a while now and they've had some Top Tens, but they're not at JLS levels. Maybe Mollie's interested in diversifying her career into TV presenting, or modelling or even a solo career. All this attention is giving her exactly what she needs - vastly increased name recognition. That name recognition, along with being linked to loveable Harry, is a good way of earning yourself some more lucrative endorsements as well.

Any publicity is good publicity - except maybe if you're Pippa Middleton this week.

Why has this woman got any allegiance to Harry's privacy? The apparently met once in Guy's nightclub. This whole thing started with a rumour so what's privacy got to do with it?
A lovely saying brought by Miss Maggie in Downton Abbey was "to just deny these things adds fuel to the fire". Aspinals have started rumours for this ambassador thing, creating publicity for them, we don't know of Mollie's got anything to actually do with the company as the DM has kindly not printed such a story yet. As for The Saturdays releasing new stuff, one of their band members has just had a baby. Sort of hard to record songs as a group when a band mate is looking after a month old baby. There's also over in the USA filming a television show. Ironically, one of Mollie's band mates is dating a gentleman from JLS. Despite this, they have just released a new single which is so far in the Top 20. Lucrative endorsements? Didn't you say you had never heard of Aspinals before this article? Hardly lucrative if they're unknown.
