Then why do you even care?

I have no problem paying for William to learn how to save people in trouble. And part of the reason Harry is learning to fly helicopters is so that he can serve without people finding out about where he is. Yes I do give them credit for trying to do something.

I care because he could also become my King if Australia doesn't vote to become a republic first (which I certainly hope that we will have done by the time he becomes King).

I rather see them in the armed forces, getting (some sort of) an understanding of what soldiers goes through than having them spend money at night clubs and a life in luxury

Please note that the topic of this thread is Harry and Chelsy: relationship musings. It is not to discuss the role of William and Harry in the Armed Services, whether or not Australia will be come republic, etc.

Let's get back on topic.

Thank you.

Even if Harry chooses to run off to South Africa with Chelsy William does have Beatrice, Eugenie, their and uncles to carry out some duties. But doesn't the bulk of it fall on William and his wife like I'm seeing with the other CP couples? I know that the kings and queens have their duties but aren't some of them being transfered to the CP's since this is what they'll be doing for life.

The British royal family, since the abdication, have been far more a 'family' affair with many members doing things not just the Crown Prince and the monarch (plus spouses).
Harry, and even Beatrice and Eugenie, will be doing their fair share of the work in the same way that Anne, Andrew, Edward, Sophie and even the Dukes of Gloucester and Kent and Princess Alexandra have done during the reign of the present monarch.

The British Royal Family tend to have far more engagements and duties to divvy out than the other royal houses so they need more help from others in the family. With more charities being formed as the population grows there may come a time when we have to go back to the old days when the "Lady" of the local area used to perform some of these duties such as opening local schools,hospitals etc. because the royal family receives so many requests that probably most of them can't even be filled.

William is definately going to need help from his brother and his br. wife imo. It's fine for cousins to help out but his own brother w/ wife should help too. Besides there are only 2 cousins to help as the other cousins won't be doing any engagements and the older generation starts slowing down. And quite frankly I don't know if Pr. Eugenie will want to live the royal lifestyle of duties etc.

Thank you for that whole post.
Any time Harry is pictured on a week-end out I read a whole bash of comments about him 'idling around' and 'playing toy soldier', even though he is on a week-end leave. Same thing when he is using his allotted vacation time. I think some people believe the military runs slave camps.
I would expect that kind of ignorance from the Daily Mail's readers but people in here should know better.

On the subject of Holidays: Chelsy was pictured in Mauritius, but no sign of Harry:

Well well that wasn't surprising.
She looks wonderful except she's smoking.

Cool

Chelsy doesn't appear to not like the press from these shots. Idriel, I respect your opinions, but please don't refer to members as ignorant. We all have our views.

Yeah, she's been going there with her family every year. Probably how the press guessed it.

Prince Harry is to be promoted to captain after serving just under five years in the Army – in a move that could help cement his relationship with Chelsy Davy.
Friends say his additional responsibilities could prompt the sometimes wayward Royal to curb his partying and consider settling down with his on-off girlfriend of five years.
A source said: ‘Harry will be made a captain

How on earth can you relate becoming a captain in the army, and flying an apache helicopter to a relationship.
Harry has been in the army for 5 years and he still parties, a promotion I don't think is going to change this habit.

That would be a first! She always looks miserable/annoyed in paparazzi shots.
One picture looks at first like she is smiling directly at the camera when she's probably looking at the same thing her father is, and that's not the camera.

Poor choice of word indeed. It came off aggressive.
What I meant is that I expect members of this forums to be more informed about the subjects under discussion the average population.

Also, while the suitability of Harry ongoing partying is a matter of debate, the fact that he does that on his time off from the military is not.

It must be frustrating for the princes when every time they do something or accomplish anything all the press talks about is their private life. "Oh Harry's being promoted to Captain so that must mean he's getting married and settling down."

So far Harry doesn't seem to have joined Chelsy in Mauritius. We'll see.

It's a shame she smokes. I wonder if she caused Harry to start smoking again because didn't he quit last year?

I like and admire Chelsy, but I wonder if she would be up to the task of actually joining the Royal Firm

It's hard to say. It is difficult to keep from smoking when you're around someone who smokes. But we don't know that it's Chelsy's fault. Quitting smoking is a very difficult thing to do no matter what. Hopefully he'll quit again.
