Back on to the topic of Prince Henry's marriage prospects, I'm going to put my name in the pot. Just because it seems that far reaching.

Why not, I think the potential field is pretty wide open. In a couple of years when you finish at Oxford he might be ready for it. You may want to start spending summer vacations at the polo fields to better your chances of meeting him. You could even have your wedding at York Minster like the Duke of Kent did. Having been a regular contributor to these boards you already know the scrutiny you would be living your life under so you would go into the marriage with your eyes wide open.

Haha, I was talking to a friend about this thread and mentioned it's name, to which she responded "I am his potential wife." I think you might have some competition Lumutqueen.

Not going to happen, but as a history-fan imo it would be really cool if he'd marry someone from an old british noble family :-)

Maybe the dukes of Norfolk or Somerset have eligible daughters :-) (how cool would it be if to have Arundel castle in the extended family )

With the Norfolks you again run into the RC wife, CofE children issue and the debate about how devout the potential wife is to her own faith.

Not a showstopper but okay, there are probably more candidates in the various families: Ten dukes-a-dining: Gathered together over lunch for a unique picture, the grandees with £2bn and 340,000 acres between them | Mail Online

Duke of Wellington's great granddaughters (he's over 90). The nieces of Lady Jane Wellesley. Posted about this a week ago. Good option

Ah. I wasn't on the board a week ago and haven't read a lot of the pages for this thread yet (there's a lot!). I had a moment of "there's a few dukes out there still..."

I'm not sure which great granddaughters you're referring to. My knowledge of the current Duke of Wellington is, sadly, lacking, but based on his Wikipedia page I see he has 5 children; Charles (b. 1945), Richard (b. 1949), Jane (b. 1951), and James (b. 1964). Charles has 5 children, born between 1978 and 1990 (and presumably his daughters, Mary Luise (b. 1986) and Charlotte Anne (b. 1990) could be a match for Harry), and 4 grandchildren, born between 2005 and 2010. Richard also has 2 daughters, Davinia and Natasha born in 1977 and 1981, John has a son (b. 1981)and a daughter (Alexandrina Sofia, b. 1983), while James has a daughter born in 1995.

Of the bunch, Mary Luise, Charlotte Anne, Davinia, Natasha, and Alexandrina (the current Duke's granddaughters) are all of an eligible age for Harry (although I'm unaware of whether any are single or not), although I would think the current Duke's great-granddaughters would be a tad young.

That's what I hoped.


Now I want to go through other Dukes/Marquesses/Earls/Viscounts/Baronies/Barons and see what eligible daughters/granddaughters/sisters/etc they have.... This is not making for a productive day.

Yes! "Dear Prince Harry,

Here is a list of the possibly eligible children of nobles for you to consider marrying."

Maybe an aristocratic friend of HGD Stephanie whose family dates as far as Stephanie's. If we'd like a traditional matchup.
