Does Cressida actually have a driving licence?
I have never seen pictures of her behind the wheel of a car.

I find the statement that she drove into KP at a high speed very unlikely to be a fact as IIRC, from what I've read over the years, isn't there a checkpoint for all cars driving into KP grounds?

I really don't think one can just up and choose to drive in on a whim.

Don't be misled. The report was solely about Cressida 'speeding' into KP (and speeding is a relative term, unless she came barreling up to the check-point within an inch of the guards' life, which again makes for an interesting study in confidence. Cressida would not be, if true, the limp young thing we seem to suppose. ). It was ladongas and I being a bit impish creating a little dramatic scenario.

So no love drama, at least not that I know of.

I see another report, from one of those oh so credible gossip blogs, that Richard Branson has invited Harry to see New Years Eve in on Necker Island (which he of course owns.) Cressida will be on the guest list.

If Harry proposes on Necker under a tropical sky, that will bring a sparkle to Richard's eyes. So many more tourist dollars!

You paint a very appealing picture. Then a summer wedding!

Necker Island is privately owned by Sir Richard Branson but it is also a very exclusive resort with rentals available.

If Harry accepts, it will probably result in a proposal.

But, doesn't he usually go skiing around that time?

Although I think Harry and Cressida are getting their relationship back on track behind the scenes, I don't think they will get married next year.
I have a feeling they won't go public with their relationship before both of them know for 100% that they will tie the knot.
The pressure that will come then with going public, won't put any strain on their relationship anymore because the decision to get married has been taken by that time and only the two of them will know that. And then, at some point, an announcement will be made.
IF they are heading towards marriage in their relationship, I can see them getting engaged by the end of next year with a wedding in 2016.
I think that is the plan, but ofcourse it is just speculation on my part.

Harry won't be walking down the isle in the foreseeable future. He's not in a relationship at the moment. Even if he's trying to establish one, most likely he won't rush into anything.

If everything continue to go well, I think, the next British royal wedding will be between Princess Beatrice and Dave Clark.

You sound so certain. I hope you're right, only because I want to see a wedding and then babies. I also think Cressida would make a stunning bride and gorgeous babies. My reasons are pretty superficial and un-invested.

Anyway, I think Harry is very ready for marriage, as he himself has said so. The spring/summer of 2015 strikes me as a perfect time. JMHO.

Out of nowhere I had this idea and some of you may wish I didn't. Well actually, I saw the adoption thread and then Lady Nimue posted "and then babies." I wish Harry or some other high-profile-if-not-heir-type-royal would marry and adopt. It would be such an excellent example for the world to follow.
In fact, I'll go out on a limb and say that if Harry found a woman who shared his passion for Sentable and said - "Oh Harry, let's marry and then go through the approval/counseling process and try to adopt," that might carry a lot of weight in his eyes. Maybe not as a first child, but it would be a value centered choice to make.
Harry does have some substance underneath all that motorbike and Las Vegas stuff he has done.

Any child or children adopted by Prince Harry and his wife wouldn't by styled HRH or any other title than master/miss ? 'Mountbatten-Windsor', since adoptees [whilst equal in EVERY other respect cannot inherit their adopted fathers title [or courtesy titles.]

Although a laudable idea in many respects I think that would increase the pressure on the adoptee to an uncomfortable degree, by making their 'other' status permanently visible in the public eye.

i speak as a [very happy] adoptee, myself.

Far better IMO than raising 1 child as an adoptee (ala Angelina Jolie) to invest equivalent $$$ or time to help orphans in situ - as Harry has done w/ Sentebale.
Before we detour down a track arguing about how Harry should acquire his future offspring, perhaps we can focus on his acquisition of his future GF/spouse.
I lean towards the Cressida is history camp. However, if they have rekindled their relationship then Cressida has perhaps learned who cannot be trusted with this info. as there are no leaks this time unlike the onslaught from 'friends' and 'sources' which we saw before.
Am I the only one who thinks Cressida's appearance has hardened just a bit? Or is it just the photos published lately have been less flattering? To me she's looking more and more like her half sister Isabella these days and less like the ingenue she seemed in the beginning.

I think Harry and Cressie are done just like he and Chelsea are done (sorry giraffe but it's true)....he's publically said he wants what his brother has (wife/family) so it's not an issue of him wanting to be a playboy.

I think he needs to try and date normal women ..those outside his social circle and the titled set. Women like Kate/Sophie/Autumn etc. Women he would run into during some of his 'off camera' visits to charities etc.

Might be so. Makes sense.

She was just out of adolescence 'in the beginning' so that counts for the early impressions. She was in fact an ingenue. She is growing up, maturing. I hope that doesn't translate to 'hardening'. For any of us. Isabella remains a beauty in my eyes, whenever I see a picture, which isn't often, but I just looked her up to be sure. Cressida's features are more delicate, more chiseled and refined in quality imo. I don't see a resemblance beyond the familial.

Adopted children are granted the same courtesy titles as other children (and have been since 2004), they just can't inherit titles.

Any child of Harry's (biological or adopted) will be Lord/Lady X Mountbatten-Windsor during his grandmother's lifetime (presuming that Harry is married to said child's mother). I don't think the LPs pertaining to Princely title really address the issue of adopted children (or for that matter children born out of wedlock but subsequently legitimatized; in the peerage such children are treated like adopted children) at the moment, but I would suspect that if/when the situation arises LPs would be created to address it.

I knew hardened wasn't exactly the right word - chiseled is closer to what I was trying to describe.

Of course Cressida will be 26 next February (and Chelsy is now 29; how time flies!) If Harry and Cressida take another couple of years to walk down the aisle Cress will be 27 and Harry 32, good mature ages. However, I am wavering now about whether the two are seeing each other. They are keeping things well under wraps if they are. I too want to see Harry and Cressida wed.
