In 2007, William confirmed the break-up; they were over.

Just wondering if this is 2007, part 2 ; to damped the engagement rumours down for a bit? A friend is saying they may be back together again in a few months or at the end of the year?

That could be quite likely. People on Twitter have been wondering the same thing, although Twitter isn't the greatest of sources. I personally think they won't get back together any time soon, as I don't think either of them are quite ready for marriage yet. JMO.

Cressida was spotted in London today. I don't think she has her own thread yet, but perhaps one could be created in the Member's Corner since she has now split up from Harry and will probably be "papped" every now and then.

At the end of the day Harry needs to do whats best for Harry. That 5 yr age diff may be a problem. They may have their minds on diff things.

Something tells me we haven't heard the last of this yet. I think this relationship has just been moved to the back burner to simmer for awhile.

I agree about the 5 years point . Although 5years isn't a huge gap, I get the sense that Harry at 30 is moving into a very different stage in his life. Of course none of us know the real Harry, but you get the impression he is thinking seriously about settling down - perhaps this is partly brought on by the changes to his professional career, perhaps because he's witnessing changes in William's life. Cressida at 25 appears to be just getting her head around what she would like to do with her life - she doesn't strike me as ready for making a momentous and long term decision about her future.
It's sad for them both, but hopefully they can be given the space to move on.

Intresting debate on Twitter:
  1. Richard Eden ‏@richardaeden 29 apr
    Interesting that Kensington Palace is clearly briefing about #princeharry and #Cressida. I wonder if all is as it seems



  2. Jamie McFadden ‏@JamieMcFadden_ 24 h
    @richardaeden You mean it's a cover up? Or are they over-briefing so much just to avoid an alternative angle?



  3. Richard Eden ‏@richardaeden 24 h
    .@JamieMcFadden_ When speculation heightened after #Cressida attended official event with Harry, briefing began to calm things down





  4. Jamie McFadden ‏@JamieMcFadden_ 24 h
    @richardaeden Ah. Many have said that it is possibly, like William & Kate's split, a method of simply reducing the engagement stories.




Richard Eden ‏@richardaeden

.@JamieMcFadden_ I remember talking to Kate Middleton during her 'split' from William. It was clear they were still together

They may be still together or just split but will remain friends. Personally, I think they just went their separate ways and are on friendly terms. Of course the speculation will continue anyway, especially if they turn up at the same event like a wedding, polo or something.

They appeared to be more as friends than anything else in the first place.

JMO, I never thought they were going to get married.

She was too young and I think Harry will remain a bachelor or at least, marry much later in life.

If they do reconcile, I have a feeling that they will become engaged. Otherwise...it's just one of those things!

Yeps. Although many times its said that absence makes the heart grow fonder, its also true that sometimes absence makes the heart go wander.

Harry is in no real rush to get married and isn't being pushed into anything either so I wouldn't be surprised if he does stay single for quite a few more years.

3; Too young for any form of commitment? Who are you to judge? Anywhere between the ages of 0-18 is too young for commitment ie marriage in my book, anything after that is fine and dandy. If Henry and Cressida don't think they're working out then that's fine, but neither is too young for any form of commitment . . .

I have to agree Lumutqueen, people talk as if Harry and Cressida were 19 and 15 respectively and passing sage advice on the vagarities of "young love".

Harry at 29 is a man who has shown he is quite capable of "doing the hard yards" in the usual glare of publicity that overshadows every aspect of his life. The inference that in dating Cressida he is or was, somewhat distastefully, robbing the cradle registers pretty high on the "ick" scale.

Apallingly enough the notion that they may have just changed the shape of things by becoming FWB is seen as a good thing? But what about the age difference of a whole 4 years?

When did life get so screwed up? At 18 you can drink, vote and die for your country but you are neither old enough nor mature enough to marry? I don't think so.

William never confirmed that they broke up in 2007. Actually if you read the transcript or watch the engagement interview, he said it was during the time they were at St. Andrews.

So to be honest, I'm not saying the press is wrong about Harry and Cressida breaking up but I highly doubt the reports are right. I'll wait and see.

Below is the transcript for the engagement interview. You'll have to read a bit before you get to it. It's closer to the end.

Prince William and Kate Middleton Interview Transcript - ABC News

Quote- 'TB: People are bound to ask, you leave university, you have been going out a bit and you split up, famously, all over the papers, what was all that about, people are bound to want to know.

William: Well I think to be honest, I wouldn't believe everything you read in the paper but in that particular instance we did split up for a bit. But that was just, we both were very young, it was at university, we were sort of both finding ourselves as such and being different characters and stuff, it was very much trying to find our own way and we were growing up, and so it was just sort of a bit of space and a bit of things like that and it worked out for the better.'

I completely agree. She's 25 not 15. Plus, 5 years isn't that bad in terms of age gap at all. Look at Philippe and Mathilde I think Cressida just doesn't quite fit what everyone thinks a woman dating or marrying a prince should be like. Everyone is entitled to their opinion.

Why Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry really split | Mail Online

I have never seen so much "leaked" information in my life. If this is true (and a lot of it rings true) Cressida's so called friends and family must have big mouths!

No need for phone tapping here folks!!

What a mess, and a bigger mess if they ever get back together...all those leaks and willing sources!!

I am convinced now that Chelsy did not just leave because of the fish bowl effect but because of Henry's behavior. I hope Chelsy has found a man who loves and respects her. I hope she is happy. Henry stuffed that one up good and proper!

And then there's this:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/ukne...-air-fare.html

More sources, more friends...

At least the articles have the "sudden" thing in common, the rest of it doesn't make much sense. She didn't want to spend money. She does not have money that's why she doesn't dress well. Why spend the money if the relationship is not working? She confronted him about their future...Whaaaaaat??

We have to remember that the media is just guessing on what caused the split between Harry & Cressida. No one even knows what caused the split between Harry & Chelsy either. The only way any of us would know what really happened is if Harry or Cressida actually speak out about it officially and I don't think that's going to happen. I really don't think it's our business anyway.

I think it was three years ago that Harry actually mentioned in an interview on the kind of lady he's looking for and he'll most likely will find her at some point. If it's not Cressida or Chelsy, it'll be somebody else.

Wow, that is the fastest trial and conviction in history. Harry goes from sad and dumped again to biggest juvenile jerk and cheater and cheapskate in the world . . . all on the strength of the Mail and the Telegraph, those ultimate arbitors of truth and justice.

And no one even knows if any of this is break up stuff is true...Guess it'd be naive to hope the media will leave them to sort through their relationship (whatever the state) on their own...

Under the circumstances, I think the long weekend w/ big brother Will for the wedding is a good thing - it'll give them time to talk. Some of the details are pretty specific suggesting to me there are some loose lips, hopefully that's something they'll discuss, these constant leaks put spins on events which if Harry stays with her will always happen, and I thought the Wales boys dropped anyone who leaked things to the press.
It reads like they had an argument and 'broke up' 2 or 3 days ago - whether they will stay apart who knows, at this stage I'd call it a lovers quarrel rather than a break up.
I imagine every single female attending the wedding in Tennessee is suddenly contemplating the fact that a suddenly single sexy prince will be in their midst.
