This is a time when Diana would have helped. She had the experience to do it, and cared enough to do it. Perhaps Harry needs to talk to another royal person who is not of the older generation but is older than he is. Maybe he does talk to that one.
Frankly, IMO his mother is the last person he or anyone should take relationship advice from unless it was look at what I did and then do the exact opposite.

Eek! I've just found out that I am (or used to be) a bully! When I had been dating my husband for about 2 years, we had talked about marriage, but nothing specific. I wanted to get married and told him that we needed to make plans or break up. (I didn't want my youthful fertile years to be spent in a relationship that was going nowhere.)

Now that was most certainly an ultimatum, but a reasonable one based on my own best interests. Long story short, we were married within 6 weeks and remain happily so all these years later. Was I being a bully, or was I looking after my own future?

I have to say that I do not see this scenario as bullying ladongas. Time clock is an important issue.

I believe KittyAtlanta and NGalitzine were talking about alternatives that are on the aggressive side and less concerned with "real" issues. More about manipulation I think.

Since Cressida was at her sister's wedding there is a little information about her and her singing at the wedding so I thought I'd post it. There is a also a little picture. I think there will be more pictures later. At least I hope so....

Was the date of the wedding ever confirmed? Neither of the articles I've read have given a date, and there was confusion about which weekend, what day, leading up to the nuptials.

Unfortunately, no. I even checked Hello magazine who had all the coverage and they haven't said. At least not yet. Maybe in later articles they will state it.

I'm going to see if a video shows up of them interviewing guests, more specifically, Cressida. Wish me luck! If anyone else finds one first...thank you:).

The main wedding ceremony was on wednesday. But the party is said to have last 4 days, including a all-white party and a fancy dress party with the theme "animals". Which 4 days it was, I don't know. Both families travelled to SA right before the Tomilson's wedding (thursday and friday) but guests only started to arrive on monday I think.

I have to say when I first saw some pictures of her from the wedding I was like she looks like a kid. I am little surprised Harry didn't go for someone older.

Hummm. I wonder if Cressida was named after the unfaithrul Trojan woman of the same name, or whether she was named after the small moon of Uranus.

Lol. That would be an interesting question to ask. I can see it now. All the paparazzi following her as she gets in the car and some random camera man asking that same question. Hilarious! But is it a common name in the UK?

I lived in England for many years and never met a Cressida. Toyota used to have a model called the Cressida.

It is not a name I've heard anywhere I've ever lived. I like the way it rolls off the tongue, but would never name a daughter that because of the unfaithful business.

I thought the same! I think that's what turns me off with this couple. Cressida looks a bit like a teenager while Harry is looking more and more like a man in my eyes.

Her looking like a kid is even funnier because her name Cressida always remember me of the word Crescida which in portuguese means "grown up"

I agree she looks young. But then I have always found it hard personally since I look very young no matter how much makeup I have on or what I wear. So...I feel for you Cressida! :(

Knock a girl when she's already down...:) lol
I'm sure it'll be beneficial...one day

Nice to know she can sing though...sing and dance

Oh jolly goodness! I found something! Totally by accident of course. Honestly with this info, I would hate for Cressida to be my name lol. Joking of course.

I have no idea why, after reading those alternatives, suddenly Kim Kardashian and Kanye West popped into my head. I wonder if they'll name their baby Kressida? Might become a rather apropo family name for them.

Wonder what Harry will think of that?

We are amused.
