Loosely interpreted, I believe it means people who like to be seen at all the fashionable clubs.

people with class seen at fashionable clubs - the clubs harry frequents are clubs started by his pals with a short life-span. And not particularly classy.

The comment in the media that stunned me the most (from the Mail, I think) was a "friend" saying how nice Cressida was - fun, quiet, etc. etc "and she doesn't do drugs". As if this is not the norm. Yikes!

Glad she doesnt but that is a loaded statement.

I guess now that William is married and about to have an heir, I guess Harry is seeing this as a chance to be a bachelor for awhile. I can see Harry getting married in his mid/late 30's, possibly early 40's.

Quite the opposite really. He's stated several times in very recent interviews that he really wants to get married and settled down and soon. I need to find a link or links.

But even if it was true, it would have been such a long time ago that I can't see that it matters now.

But is it certain that Harry will go to the wedding at all? The press says so, but I haven't read anything official.
I don't really understand your question about why they shouldn't be friends. I was just staying that the press are saying he is accompanying Cressida to her sister's wedding. I wasn't even stating it as a fact since the press will say anything for a story. I was saying that I had heard Harry and Sam were friends before all the Cressida stuff so I wouldn't be surprised if he were going as a friend of Sam not just because his girlfriend's sister is getting married.

Cepe I was thinking not primarily of Harry but of Cressida's family (what little has been made known about them in my viewing) as "cafe society". That was a term popular when her mum was a young fashionable famous woman. It figured prominently in descriptions of the social doings of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor. The phrase may be outdated in terms of Harry's present day activities but it is a background of Cressida's family, and pictures of them (mum and daughters) seem to indicate that type of life still in vogue.
Cressida may have a real brain on her, and not be a cafe society type at all. I was responding to another post about Harry needing a girl of strong character, and I guess such a person could indeed emerge from her family's life. From many sources come good things. She is certainly spectacularly beautiful, no wonder he is smitten, and a dance major at that...giving her a great "carriage".

Continually seeing Cressida's photo in the white knit dress and the descriptions given of her by "friends" as quoted in the DM, such as "hard to pin down, " and such (can't remember exact terms) remind me of Daisy Buchanan in The Great Gatsby, down to wearing white. Daisy was a shallow, airy character who lived in a "careless" world of money. I keep thinking of Daisy when I hear of Cressida.

I'm not saying that the comparison is a fair one, but this is the comparison I draw from what I have read.

Cressida is a professional dancer who has an university degree. This is nothing you get without hard work. Professional dancing means having not only talent and the means to support yourself during the meagre times, but it means discipline. There is no other professional field that knows less compassion when you fail to meet the standards - laziness is not condoned. So surely that girl has stamina!

I'd say that indicates she has a strong will and can be very disciplined. Money cannot buy you talent.

I don't understand? Surely to pass the exam at the end of her university course she must have shown talent? Plus there are the entrance auditions on both her university and her current conservatoire?

As a dancer, Cresside might remind him of Diana, who used to dance for her small boys occasionally.

That's my point. If you read the first part of my sentence that's what I am saying.

So I'm posting this because it has some different pictures and apparently a little more information about their trip. I just like the pictures though...

His most recent interview on his return from Iraq we got these quotes;

Quote:
‘You ain’t ever going to find someone who’s going to jump into the position that it would hold. Simple as that,’ he said in a recent interview to mark the end of his tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Asked whether he was actually single, he cryptically replied: ‘I’m just out here doing my job. That’s all I can say at the moment.’
Quote:
He says: ‘I don’t think you can ever be urged to settle down. If you find the right person and everything feels right, then it takes time . . . especially for myself and my brother.’
Baby comments were

Quote:
“Obviously I'm thrilled for both of them,” he said during an interview in Helmand Province which was took place about ten days after the announcement of the Royal pregnancy but can only now be reported.
“It's about time,” he joked. “I can't wait to be an uncle.”

So that put a dent in the reports that he's about to meet her parents at the wedding. I what think get on my nerves (I know it must get on Harry's nerves too) the most is that the media really want to rush his relationships. It seems like the media want another royal wedding right now and they already writing about what it would be like having this young lady in the family.

Because of his engagements? I just figured he might go to support his friend, but I agree the media speculation and attention is ridiculous. I wonder how it affects a relationship when you've got all the craziness of the world media on you.

Makes you really admire Kate for still marrying William despite the media madhouse.

The wedding would get press coverage with Harry there or not, from what I heard Hello! have coverage. He was possibly never invited, or has turned it down because of his trip.

Prince Harry’s smitten with Cressida Bonas, but won’t be at her sister’s wedding:

I read he was going to the wedding as her plus one although he was invited. I think he's rushing things because his friends and brother is married and it's expected of him. I have lots of respect for Chelsy Davy, she never talked about Harry and their relationship. He should have lots of repect for her also.

I do hope he doesn't rush into a marriage just because everyone else he knows is married.
