Anyway, I'm always wary of Harry's relationships. He seems to take his girlfriends for granted. Not visiting Chelsy in Leeds. Standing up Chelsy at the airport. Partying with his friends instead of Cressida on her 25th birthday. He prioritizes his posh friends first and foremost. His girlfriends play second fiddle. This unbalance causes tension and eventually break-ups. If he ever wants to marry, he needs to reevaluate who gets top billing in his life.
This is why I would not personally recommend Harry to any eligible woman. I think he is brilliant in his public roles, but behind the scenes, I'm not too sure.

Good point somehow I think Harry has a very different dating style than his big brother.

Agreed. I'm not sure what to make of Harry, really. We could be very surprised by the person he eventually marries.

Well, I hope it's not going to be too much of a surprise, or shock! I do think we have an inkling that Harry won't end up with a nun!

From his previous relationships, we have an idea of the kind of woman he's attracted to. She will almost certainly be a blonde. She is likely to have been educated at certain boarding schools and universities (and in spite of hopes, I do think he will stay in those circles) and will therefore have a degree of some kind. Harry seems to like intelligent girls who can hold a conversation. I don't think he goes for quiet or silent types.

Both Chelsy and Cress had interests of their own that they pursued, so any potential partner is likely to do the same. Their schedule had to be flexible however, and Chelsy and Harry ran into some problems there.

Any new girlfriend will probably be a party girl to a certain extent and know her own mind, in the sense of being independent. Harry seems to value freedom in his relationships. Whether that means that at heart he doesn't want to be tied down, who knows!

She will have to fit into his 'set' and (the most problematic of all) whoever it is will have to be able to cope with Harry's military career and royal duties and help with and support both.

The trouble is, IF Harry truly wants to settle down he is going to have to do it soon. After thirty the corresponding pool of single and unattached girls of his age and slightly less becomes very small.

Then, as his father found out, much younger girls are at a different stage of life and have different interests. Harry even found that with Cress, who was four and a half years younger. I wish him well with his search but it's not going to get easier.

Exactly so.

He's at a moment. Aging, it will only get more complicated. But hey, he may fall in love one day, genuinely and deeply. Happened to George Clooney.

Happened to Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Prince Willem-Alexander, and they had the weight of their destiny to overcome. So I guess all is not lost for Harry at 30 with no bride in sight.

Mind you, Harry being Harry could just as easily pull a rabbit out of his hat just as Prince Guillaume, Hereditary Grand Duke of Luxemburg did!

Stranger things have happened.

And if even George Clooney can get married despite always saying he never ever would, even Hot Harry can. It wouldn't surprise me if gets married quite fast when he finaly meets "the one".

miss whirley, shrug no more. Yes, that one was caught up in the melee but has now been reinstated.

Well, that's debatable

I disagree with the assumption that Harry will be forced to look for a younger woman to marry. I don't see why he won't be able to marry a woman who has been divorced. His father did.

It is true that most of these other royal princes have settled down in their 30's, all to woman who have proven themselves worthy of the task, Mary, Letizia, Maxima, etc. IMO, after Chelsy, Harry has been lookin' for love in all the wrong places. He seems to gravitate towards his close circle of friends, who seems to be a party crowd. Let him wander through a library, an art gallery, look around one of his charities and get to know the people there, etc -perhaps this would be a better place to find someone up to the task.

I am not unmindful of the fact that not only must the Wales lads find a life partner (hard enough to do), but they must also find a work partner. Tough indeed. But not impossible, as we have seen.

Actually it's rumoured that Harry collects art. He has been seen in art galleries with his friends the Warrens. He went to live theatre when he was with Cress.

Prince Fred met Mary at the Slip Inn bar in Sydney. I believe Haakon met Mette Marit at a music festival. I wouldn't be surprised if Willem and Maxima met at a party. Meeting the right person is just luck sometimes.

Didn't Prince Albert meet Charlene in a bar? I have thought for awhile Harry needs to get outside his social circle and see what's there...it's worked for William.

I've been saying that for awhile now. He should get out and explore. Perhaps take some private trips and do some hunting. I know if I had his kind of mula, I would be doing so.

They did. It was a real tennis event at Hampton Court and the person that was supposed to play Edward wasn't there and PR chick Sophie got to fill in.

If Harry collects art then perhaps that could be a good way to meet people out of his social group. The idea isn't that he isn't just a partyer and what not, it's that the women he dates seem to be from that group of friends, leading to a lack of longevity. Which... is actually a bit presumtuous on our parts. We keep on making assumptions about why Harry and Cressida didn't work - he dumped her, she dumped him, he wanted marriage but she didn't, she wanted marriage but he didn't, he was playing games with her, etc, etc, etc. We don't actually know what happened. We have what the press has says... which seems to change depending on what story they want to sell.
