Just popped in to see if Harry was engaged yet or found another lady fair. No? Catch y'all later, then!

Hmm, her sister's acting career went nowhere fast (and I always thought she used William's alleged interest in her to manipulate a proposal from Sam Branson).

Wonder if Cressida is following the same path?

I always thought this alleged interest was very much exagerated and who else had something to gain... I'm afraid the same path will be followed by Cressida and we'll ear about Harry's interest on her for quite some time (and if it's over for good, we'll certainly ear she dumped him).

They are discussing a man approaching his 30th birthday as if he was a rebellious frat boy of 19! If he did dump her it sounds like he did her a favor. Harry seems nowhere near ready for a serious commitment.

Exactly!
It was amazing the way the whole story (William and Isabella) escalated!

The story went from a sheer invention by the press to William making a (rather drunken) pass one night in a club, to Isabella as some great unrequited love who rejected William (in favor of her true love, Sam Branson).

I always thought it was mostly spin.

Yes, if she didn't dump him after Vegas, why would she now?
But I suppose we'll hear how royal life wasn't for her, she 's too free-spirited, etc.

I have to agree that if the article is true that Harry thought she was too "boring" then he isn't very nice. I don't say that I agree with the article at all. I also have to say (though I'm sure it may upset some Chelsy fans) that I have always thought she looked and on occasion behaved, rather trashy. The BRF doesn't need that, they already had that with Fergie, better a little boredom. :)

Some minor royals have married scholars or even a physician. Is such a person completely outside Harry's circle? I think it's the heir to the Duke of Gloucester who is married to a practicing physician. The heir to the Duke of Kent is married to a teacher at Oxford or Cambridge. There are some nice good looking educated women out there, but are they unsuitable for Harry? I don't know at all, just asking.
I think of the Hereditary Grand Duchess of Luxembourg who has a Master's degree which she acquired by study in Russia. She is pretty too. Could Harry be interested in such a person? There must be a lot of them out there if one knows where to look. But Harry may be looking in a tiny fraction of the population? As I said, I have no idea.

Although Henry is nearly 30, I doubt very much he is ready for marriage. Recently is was 'playing it up' with a dancer at a bar. By all accounts he still likes to party hard. In that way, I guess he is like Chelsy. They both work and party hard I think. But Chelsy wants more than just 'ribbon cutting'.

Not sure why we should aim at a lady for Henry, he is certainly no gentleman and I guess one could argue that not many men or women in the RF are ladies or gentlemen.

The double standards for women versus men in the RF are breathtaking! Why must a women behave any better than the men? Is she the head of the family? I guess if she is, she should lead by example...I'm pretty sure that model won't be up for some time.

From the little I know of Harry I believe he is not very interested in intellectual pursuits and I therefore cannot imagine him in a relationship with a university lecturer or professor, but I could see him with a medico or a fellow army officer who, though university educated is inclined towards practical rather than theoretical application of their skills and who isn't looking for an intellectual giant as a partner.

It never ceases to amaze me that people read the DM or even worse, E Online, and believe every single nasty thing they print. Harry is:

- trying to win Cressida back by Cooking!

- not trying to win Cressida's bac because he thinks she's boring - to whom did he impart this information that he should be called "not a very nice" person?

- partying hard and (shock, horror) drinking - (although there's been a strange dearth of photo's of him falling out of any Clubs. Actually, there has been a strange dearth of verified sightings of him out partying on the town.

- not very interested in intellectual pursuits - so obviously any woman who doesn't have to take her shoes off to count to twenty will not qualify as "girlfriend" material.

- not a gentleman so Ladies need not apply! (wow, harsh much)

- shouldn't chase after Chelsey again because she's trashy like Fergie! (wow, that is really harsh).

All in all this thread is starting to make dismal reading more like "Shallow Hal", with dire and dreadful judgements winging off the page. Perhaps a little Harry: relationship rumours and musing would spark a little interest. At present it's trending towards a feminist manifesto a la Germaine Greer.

Prince Harry: Relationship Rumours and Musings 2013

Harry not being an intellectual is well known and he has admitted to struggling academically. He is more of a action man. So if he dated a Hermione Granger type person who would rather read a classic novel and go the National Gallery instead of going to watch England play Wales at Twickenham or spend a week on Balmoral, that probably isn't going to last if they have nothing in common.

Those minor royals don't have the press following them around every minute; they can meet all sorts of people and it won't hit the headlines.
But anyone Harry so much as smiles at had better be ready for a massive media presence in her life!

That makes it hard for him to socialize outside of the same circles he's grown up in.

Most likely Harry's dating pool is mostly friends of his friends. He did not go to university so he wasn't exposed to a wider pool of people that William was. I don't think the Blues and Royals have female members of the regiment. Maybe he could meet someone that works with a charity sort how Edward met Sophie on an engagement.

Seriously, isn't there a leggy blond who is passionate about (or working for) one of his charities who is single and available out there somewhere for Harry?
This is what I wrote over a year ago @ their last alleged break up.
I tend to believe this break up is for real, unlike the previous ones, Harry just looked too relieved and happy at the wedding in the USA and since when he's been out and about.

This was in reference to the media being all over any female he was photographed speaking to, not saying this applies to Cress, but it would be nice if the next GF was not in the wannabe actress/dancer/model category.
I suspect Cress has friends/family intertwined w/ the media, it started w/ the 'he'd be lucky to date her' spin, then the 'he's serious and she's not sure,' and now the 'he finally persuaded her and then dumped her,' or, 'she has the upper hand and they'll reconcile.' Reminds me in an unpleasant way of the war of the Wales where we kept reading Diana's spin and no defense from Charles' side. Not saying Cress is the source of all this, and you can't control your friends and family (think Uncle Gary,) but I won't miss all of this nonsense from 'friends of the couple' or 'from a member of their circle' (or her half brother Jacobi quoted.)
Wouldn't it be nice if Harry could have a quietly discreet relationship w/out all the spin and angst. Weren't Edward and Sophie pretty under the radar? Or was Edward so far down the line of succession by then that no one cared that much?

I think that was pretty much the case (with Edward).

But Harry is media gold; stories about him generate a lot of interest and will probably never stop (at least until George and his possible siblings get old enough to date).
