Like it or not, Catherine cannot put it off for long. She knows her duty is to produce an heir to the throne and they only have two years before The Queen expects both to take on a heavier schedule of public duties.

Harry is still the son of a future Sovereign and has a duty to marry appropriately and fulfill his responsibilities to help carry the load. Not doing so will mean letting his father or brother down and I don't think that's going to happen.

I highly doubt that Harry would marry a rugged woman and go live in Africa. If he was Frederick Windsor maybe, but not as the son of the Prince of Wales. If he marry a rugged woman he will still live in Britain and perform his duties like his uncles and aunt

Quite so. Still, it feels like they wasted a lot of good years - she was clearly committed to him. When I looked at that retrospective it struck me as sad. Only my opinion.

Honestly, I don't know. (For sure there are the famous 2 or 3 snaps but as for the rest who knows what's going on). She clearly has absolutely no interest in the camera - plays up to it not at all. Clearly could care less what we think of her. She has a soulful look - and is generally quite provocative - a warm. earthy, cuddly sort, not afraid to show herself to her friends, but totally not interested in the camera. Very interesting, actually.

Question stands: where are the pictures of her dashing to work? Where are they? Nowhere - why? - because they don't sell.

Good point. I can only recall one picture. It was maybe two years ago. She had her hair tied back / in a sort of chignon. I'm almost certain she was wearing a navy suit. ??

It can't be from two years ago, since she started working in September of 2011

I like Chelsy, but I don't think she will marry him. She seems like she wants a career and a normal life which is fine. It is sad for me to see Harry alone though and considering his comments he doesn't like it either. I'm excited to see the girl he choses. I know some people expect some wild, over-the-top girl, but I don't get that feeling. I think she'll be fun and outgoing, but not quite what people, at least the press, want or expect which is another Fergie or some scadalous girl to rake over the coals and compare to Kate. As someone commented earlier, I like she will be like Kate, different of course, but someone as willing to sacrifice and fulfill the role and be supportive.

Freddie Windsor??? You're comparing Harry with Freddie Windsor!?!? Freddie married an actress and they don't live in Africa, they live in Los Angeles. I get your point, but I had to read between the lines (more than once). LOL

I could have sworn that it was longer than that. Did she do any internship work or anything prior to commencing work. ?

I'll check around on Google and see if I can find a picture. Then again it could have been in "Hello" magazine that I saw it. ?

In December 2008, she interned for Farrer & Company. In 2009, Davy transitioned as an intern for another firm, Allen & Overy.

You're a star. !! Yes, the picture that I saw has to have been while she was heading to work / intern with one of those two firms.

Now that I have names it might be easier to locate a picture.

I think you might be looking for these pictures:
- Chelsy going to work in December of 2008 (Farrer & Co internship)
- Chelsy going to work in September of 2011 (Allen & Overy internship)

She looked quite professional and well-dressed on most occasions.

Great pictures. I love her outfit in No. 1 .

However, I'm still seeing her with her hair in a chignon effect. You know when you get an image in your head and it won't go away.

I'll keep trying. !

That face - she's not a beauty in the normal sense - but with that face and a body that won't quit - proof are the looks by the workmen - its no wonder Harry might find it hard to forget her.

I recall an anecdote told about Chelsey and Kate in the dating years. Apparently, both brothers were attending the same party or function and were coming with their dates. William came with Kate and while Kate was pretty (for sure) and smiling and pleasant - the observation was that when Harry showed up with Chelsey the room ignited. Chelsey was friendly, warm and personable in a way Kate could not be compared to. From the story one had the impression that Chelsey had a natural 'wow' factor, a charisma, that turned heads, set the energy pulse in motion.

Subsequently, the two girlfriends kept pace in the press - seen as the two possible future wives of the brothers - and in all that I had the impression that the two women did not get along (or was that a spin suggested by one of the tabloids just to pepper the pot?) They were being compared - and Chelsey went from a bright-young-thing, totally natural, unselfconscious and happy (it seemed) to what we saw at the wedding of William and Kate.

We cannot know Chelsey's journey - but I think we can surmise that Chelsey takes her relationship/friendship with Harry seriously - lover, former-lover or friend - she is one of his intimate circle, who knows him well and is loyal to him. She does not grant interviews and does not speak about her life or her relationships. That counts for something in my book.

If she decided to marry Harry - I suspect she would make him happy and would be a charismatic Duchess. Problem is - as so many say - she has surmised the life-style of a royal is something she is not willing to sustain - not that she couldn't do it and do it well - but for whatever reason it is a sufficent negative that cancels out marriage-thoughts with Harry. I think she was given a pretty good inside view of the situation for a while and sadly decided that it was a no-go. In Chelsey's case, I think we have a woman who loves/loved the man but not the title.

BTW - I do recall pictures of Chelsey within the last year that showed Chelsey well-turned out. Instead of acknowledging that she was dressed for work and entering a restaurant after work to have some time with friends - there were questions about why she was so well-dresed - was she trying to get Harry back, or some such. That's as far as it went.

Personally. I think being 'just friends' and a 'non-couple' works for them - gives Chelsey a normal life - and is the way it is until they say otherwise.

Chelsy is too charismatic for royal life, and too independent. She would not want to fit herself into a mold. I doubt she'd want the continual tabloid nonsense either, esp. now that the readers are permitted to comment.

These are very lovely photos of Chelsy. She looks very professional. I really like the outfit in the first photo.

I find her to be particularly harsh looking in appearance. Not conventionally pretty nor delicate.

In many closeups I've seen of her, her skin looks rather dry and weathered. I'd be surprised if she were to age gracefully. Too much sun exposure and excessive smoking is a sure way to make someone resemble a dried up prune by the time they are 40+. Nor would have the said lifestyle helped deter those puffy bags under her lower eyelids which are evident in nearly every photograph.

As for the colouration of her hair, is this her natural tone? I think an alteration of colour would do her some favours, visually.

Now I know nothing of the woman's personality and will not endeavour to critique her on it, but outwardly she does not (imo) resemble a figure I would ever be likely to warm too in my capacity as an interested onlooker/ monarchist.

The problem I find with Chelsy is while that onlooker said it was Chelsy who ignited the room we mostly see her looking less then her best and usually with a sour look on her face. I don't think most people would find Chelsy as approachable as Kate and then we have Chelsy's family issues which is possibly another reason for her reluctance to enter the Royal Family. I do think she has shown a lot of smarts to realise she won't make a good working royal, I am sure she would be great at the parties etc but she doesn't seem like a girl who likes her life planned out for her a year in advance. It took her 2 or 3 years to even start her own job in a law firm who wouldn't even have looked at her if it wasn't for Harry. So she has gained from the relationship. I just hope they both move on and don't look back. I keep getting flashes of the then Sarah Ferguson joining the family and how wonderful and different she was to Diana. That worked out well didn't it?

Certainly we cannot use either of the above mentioned ladies as a mark of success. Fortunately Sophie of Wessex is the saving grace for an otherwise troubled bunch of one time in-laws.
