That article is a prime example of how to be a B***h in print. Platell has taken up the mantle of Richard Key in "Kate hate"

I may be wrong but I think it was a gradual kind of thing. It went from hanging out as friends (Eugenie and Cressida are friends) to realizing the other was a fun person to be with and started casual dating. We don't know for sure that the relationship actually really got that serious. It could have been just a casual dating relationship with benefits as far as we know. We have to remember that neither Harry or Cressida has never talked to the press about their relationship and its been papers like the DM who has Harry heading to the alter if he so much as smiles at a pretty young thing.

I'm tending to believe the statement that they have split up as "best of friends" and that they're both moving on. Or they could be using this as a ruse to really go under the radar. Or they could be secretly married already and its put the Queen in a rage and sent Camilla for a bottle of gin. Or... speculation is so easy.

It will be interesting to see if Harry goes off type with the next girlfriend and dates a non blonde.

I think Harry has made it pretty clear he thinks a lot of Kate ...it wouldn't be surprising if he wanted to find someone with some of her qualities.

I'm still saying that the pot is simmering on the back burner over this situation......

One thing I'm totally sure of is that Harry wants Harry's private life kept that way and that's one reason I don't trust anything the press speculates on. When he does find the right one and puts a ring on her finger and its officially announced he's engaged, I'll believe it.

That's about true of any situation that's published about the royals: you have to have an "I'll believe it when I see it" attitude. But I still believe that something's still simmering between Harry and Cress.

I think Zonk is right. I also agree with Baroness. It ain't over!

I know he has plenty of women who "want" him, but his options are few. He has all but has little. Life in a fishbowl.

And then there is always this:

Why it all went wrong: Harry and Cressida, their shock break-up, the wedding row - and is this is this really the end?

What princess could he date?
The single ones are either too young or too old...or they're Catholic.

He could date a Catholic princess...and even marry one. Didn't the government in the U.K. change that situation recently?

That act is not fully in force yet, but yes when it is Henry could date and marry a Catholic princess. I would wait until George has a sibling first though.

The Brazilian Imperial Family is Catholic, as are many of the Germanic houses.

If Harry wanted to find a Princess to marry he would have to either look outside of Europe or look at deposed royal houses. I believe in the Middle Eastern royal houses there are a number of princesses about Harry's age, although I'm not sure if they're single or not. There are also many princesses (or grand duchesses) from deposed royal houses who are potentially pressured into marrying equally because of the continuation of the old house laws.

However, while I believe that there could be an advantage for Harry marrying someone like, say, Madeleine of Sweden, I'm not sure that advantage extends to a Princess from a non-ruling house. Madeleine would have been exposed to a life more similar to what Harry's experienced than a non-reigning royal or a non-royal. She has an understanding of what is expected of a royal that someone like Kate wouldn't have had going into the marriage. As such, there theoretically should be less of a learning curve and she should have an easier time adjusting to the role - although the question of how much time do they spend in Britain and how much time in Sweden, when are they representing Britain/the Commonwealth and when are they representing Sweden, etc, all comes up.

Harry or William could have both done well by marrying the daughter or granddaughter of a reigning monarch, but that opportunity has kind of passed.

I think the odds on Harry picking a princess are higher than the odds of me winning the lottery tonight.

Wonder who'll be first with a new boyfriend / girlfriend on their arm?

The Middle Eastern royals are unlikely to marry into the European royal houses. It always seemed to me that there is some sort of an unwritten rule about it.
