I have noticed one underlying theme in all of the tabloid rags on the subject; there's a lot of detail as to what happens behind the scenes and virtually all of it is very pro-Cressie, and at times makes Harry look like a bit of a cad. It goes from "she's hard to pin down," she's "airy," to "she's Harry's girl," to "she was not that fussed about the Vegas thing," to "Harry has been writing furiously to her from Afghanistan while she remains a bit aloof," to the photos of the ski trip and how they were all over each other, to how she is putting her foot down on this partying, etc, to last week in the club about what a fabulous dancer she is, to now, how Harry is head over heals but she's going to take it slow, and then the ever so suspicious (in my mind) "she's wise beyond her years."

I tend to believe someone has in fact been feeding the press and that someone is Cressie, or sanctioned by one of her friends. I don't think she's all that into Harry, but she has no problem having her name linked to his putting her in the best light possible, as The One Who Harry Loves But She Won't Put Up With Any **** From Him. It's a bit of a modern day romance novel and all at the expense of Harry.

I tend to think Harry is perhaps not as head over heels as one might believe. Yes, I know they kissed out on the slopes, but sometimes unattached people who are young fool around a bit. What interested me was the other night in the nightclub. They arrived separately, they left separately, although apparently they kissed a bit.

So, I don't think they are a serious couple, and I think this is both from Harry's perspective as well as Cressie's. But what a feather in her cap this is to be the One Who Will Get Away.


JMHO, of course....
I too don't buy that Henry is head over heels. I also question where this "inside" information is coming from. There have been a few of these regarding her. There appears to me to be a relatively quick response from her "insiders" to media speculation.

Interesting.

In my view insiders dont exist, neither do close friends. It is story time by journalists - the baiting of a hook to see which fish rises. Some bait other journalists

I never believe an "insider" story.

Exactly.

Some of these articles just seems like old rehash articles from Harry and Chelsy relationship

Sounds like an accurate job description as someone who is very opinionated, speaks their minds, tells people what they think, and doesn't like travel or doesn't want to behave properly all the time need not apply. If you don't like children, don't apply either.

I could go on... but, why?
None of those are actual qualifications which is what I asked and according to you half the born royals shouldn't be royals. Let alone the people who have married in. Must not smoke or do drugs? You're having a laugh. Avoid travel to anywhere run? Where did William and Catherine go before they were married? Hilarious.

I think you are partly right Cepe but there are "real" insiders all be it a lot more rare than the made up ones. There are plenty of people who leak stories for different reasons. There are even some who leak by mistake. Journalists can be very cunning and can organise quite elaborate set ups.

As you may know, Diana and many like her leaked information for different reasons. Press managers do it all the time. It is part of business, marketing, etc.

This does not confirm Cressida has leaked or not, of course. It is possible people around her do it of their own free will or with her permission...or not...or not at all.

From that article:

"Sources say the couple discussed their future over an intimate dinner held at his apartment last week."

Don't "intimate" dinners usually only involve two people? Which one of them has blabbed?

Even if they had just introduced each other to their respective families, that, of itself, does not mean that they are about to get engaged. Stupid article.

The more I read about how serious this is, the less likely I think it to be true. If they get engaged, I will fall over.

I'll never rule out the possibility of marriage between Prince Harry and Cressida. His Royal Highness has said that he wants to settle down and start a family. And I'm afraid that he'll rush into marriage.

Also, the Royal Family has having great highlights into the past two years:

2011 - the Royal Wedding.

2012 - the Diamond Jubilee.

2013 - the Royal baby.

I would like to see the highlights keeping going, and 2014 is up to Prince Harry. Who knows what will really happen?

I don't disagree. All we know is what we are fed by the press, and little glimmers from Harry himself. How old is Cressie? 24 or so? Seems a bit young to commit to a royal marriage and royal life. I hope that if they are keen on marriage they take it slow.

Hope he gets a good pre-nup because the Prince and The Showgirl has disaster written all over it.

Yes, she's 24 (25 by 2014).

They are a beautiful couple, and I wouldn't mind to see her as the Duchess of Sussex (or whatever Dukedom the Queen gives to Prince Harry).

They need at least a few years together in a committed relationship with her getting the feel for being part of his family and his life. An intensive course with vocational goals!

I am a bit worried about Harry's desire to settle down and marry and have kids. I hope he doesn't decide this is what he wants and start pressuring the girl to marry him before she's sure it's right for her. She's still relatively young. I'd hate history to repeat itself.

Well, "the Prince and the Single Mother" worked out, just like "the Princess and the Personal Trainer", "the Prince and the Dictatorship Minister's Daughter", "the Prince and the Divorced Jornalist" and, my favorite one, "the Princess (now Queen) and the Exiled Greek Prince with No Money".

On the other hand, "the Prince and the Beautiful and Young Daughter of an Earl" went terribly wrong.

Cressida likes to dance, she has a degree on dance. What's the problem with that?

Didn't you mean the blackout drinking, Talban XBox shooting guy and the young lady who studies dance?

So, can you please say who is the "showgirl"? Certainly this is not Miss Cressida Bonas.
