No they are still in there, and they dont have anywhere else. But they pay for it.

AND, they work for it. I'm thinking the quote was taken out of context - referencing where Harry could fit when he marries and has children. Should not have been mentioned IMHO.

British Royals ‏@britishroyals 8h
Prince Harry's current & former flames, Cressida & Chelsy, were present at the annual carol service. Note: they also both attended last year

Well that's awkward! Prince Harry's ex Chelsy Davy and current girlfriend Cressida Bonas attend same carol service-

I do miss Chelsy's bubbly personality.

The photo of the Cressie's guy friend shielding her with his coat lining is a bit much. She will pose happily with her family on some red carpet to promote her brother, but a couple of photographers she can't take it. That does not seem like a good sign.

I think the opposite. She's saying loud and clear that photographers are not wanted and are in intrusion. On a red carpet where being photographed is one thing but in this case, she realizes that she's being photographed for the sole reason being that she is dating Harry. She definitely would know Harry's feelings about intrusions and the press.

I'd rather see her ducking photogs rather than seeing her actively seeking the photographer's attention.

Exactly!
Thanks to him she looks ridiculous (reminds me of that picture of Pippa's gun-toting friend in Paris). She should have just smiled and kept walking.

I would rather like her to provide a nice smile but those photographers are probably throwing all kinds of embarrassing questions at her to get a reaction from her. We have to remember that these paps talk to them to get them to make a reaction.

I'm with the view that a simple smile is the best option. I'm sure that certain members of the press must seek to provoke a reaction from her, but hiding behind someone's coat is not a good idea and will only encourage more baiting from the media.

I would have thought the best course of action would have been to keep smiling, say nothing and walk on. Hiding behind a coat when you have already been photographed seems a little over dramatic to me.

When she is on a red carpet, she's also being photographed because she's Harry's girlfriend. Yet she doesn't mind. She goes to many events (not just her brother's) and poses in the red carpet and all that.
And then she comes and makes this oh-I-hate-the-spotlight face in events more related with Harry.
Something is wrong here, IMO

She can't win. No matter what she does she will either be criticized or subject to unwanted attention. I haven't seen the picture but she has the right not to want to be photographed. The media is using her to make money. What does she get out of it? She loses her privacy and is subject to criticism about her hair, clothes, friends, etc... It must be very frustrating.

Being a girlfriend to these high profile royals isn't easy in the modern and advanced media world. Catherine got the worst end of things when she was dating William. I think only real love and friendship can help you get through it all.

Of course, she has the right not to like to be photographed. My point is that sometimes it seems she likes, sometimes she acts as if she doesn't. Sounds to me like if she's playing a game.

It's a huge diffrenced if you are on a red carpet and prepaired for the press; or you are hounded by paparazzis, in your private time - followed and people jumping in your way etc.

Why is it so difficult for some people to see the diffrence? It should be the most natural thing to understand, that everybody likes their privacy. Do you wish for paparazzis to look into your bathroom and trap you where ever you go? No? So why should the next person accept that. Only because some people offer the most private situations and parts to be seen in social media and the press, doesn't mean it's the norm.

Not how I see it. Usually appears creeped out when in an unposed setting. Handles a posed event well. She's still a kid for heavens sake.

I absolutely agree. So what if sometimes she doesn't seem to mind the intrusion and other times she does. There are days that nothing bothers me and other days when everything bothers me. It's not playing games; it's being human.

If she is someplace that is set up for media, like a red carpet, she has the choice to either play along or not attend. But she should have a choice. Dating a member of the royal family shouldn't mean that she has given up the right to any privacy. She has no obligation to help media moguls make more money.

I understand the difference between being prepared for red carpet poses and being caught by the papparazzi in their private life very well. (though the Carol service is far from being a caught unprepared situation). My point is: if she hates the spotlight and loves her privacy so much, why does she attend the red carpet events?

And: "She's still a kid for heaven's sake." You must be joking, right? She's 24, not a kid.

I'm not sure why you don't understand why she may decide to go to a red carpet event if she doesn't like the photographers. When she decides to attend it is because she has obviously decided she will enjoy it even though she'll have endure the photographers. It seems pretty straightforward.

My impression was that she was just walking in to an event with friends. Her friend was smiling anyway so I think I was supposed to be a joke. She was neith smiling nor frowning just minding her own business. Honestly Kate and Chelsy did the same thing most times. I don't see what the big deal is. If she's stuck around this long with Harry she obviously wants to be with him. She doesn't need his money or his fame; she has her family for that. She's only been photographed on a red carpet twice and both times with family members and/or for their events. Plus, there are long stretches of not seeing her at all. I don't see what the big deal is. Her friend was obviously playing a joke.
