Curious view. She was pretty young when he took up with her. It seems that any woman who dares openly date Harry will be accused of cunning intentions. No-win. At no time did she 'flash' herself with him. Quite the reverse. They were both distinctly low-key about their paring, so much so that I still question if they really had a relationship.

In the end, it seems he pretty much pulled the rug out from under her, from what i understand. (There seems to be two versions: Cressida dumped Harry, or Harry dumped Cressida. Take your pick). Either way, Harry comes out looking like a bit of a cad, though it seems they have definitely smoothed things over and she remains within his inner circle.

Harry knew her dreams when he took up with her. If he's okay with her pressing on with her life in the limelight, why should we resent her for it? As Cressida moves through the Hollywood world and gets her footing, I'll bet once she gets a serious boyfriend (which I hope happens for her in time), she'll be throwing parties and Harry will be one of the invitees.

P.S. From the little I know, Cressida should do just fine in Hollywood (if she wants). It all depends on how she sees herself as an actress. She's at a pivotal moment.

P.P.S. I also don't think this is a contest about who has 'helped' people more. Keep in mind that Harry merely mounted a charity. He is not a philanthropist. Big difference between the two. One is the mounting of a business. The other is the actual funneling of personal fortune into charitable organizations. Harry is to be lauded for creating the magnet and working to attract funds, but without the philanthropy, he would be accomplishing nil.

My 'dread' is not for the reason you might think. I think marrying Harry would be a mistake for her. Not for Harry. He would be lucky to get her to agree to be his wife.

However, your observation about there being no visible girlfriend with Harry, makes me wonder if there is some understanding with Cressida. I am hoping not, for her sake.
I don't think you have anything to worry about in regards to them still being a couple. Cressida was just interviewed by a writer friend for the Sunday Times, and it was very clear that the relationship is over. The writer got in some pretty nasty digs about Harry (and W&K), so I don't think there is much love lost between Cressida and Harry.

Do you have a link to that article? What you say puzzles me as I had understood that Harry and Cressida really are on good terms.

I never thought Harry and Cressida "fit" as a couple. She seemed too bohemian to fit in with the royal family. I couldn't imagine her on the balcony next to the queen. I believe Harry's real love was Chelsy.

Just read the article. IMO it's pretty innocuous, but then, I'm not British. It's curious that people seem to think that Cressida would have the 'final say' on the article. How does that work?

I liked this part that talks of Cressida as an experience: "Cressy, to friends. Smally, to her family. Nonchalantly unpretentious, effortlessly chic, shes easy-going, free-thinking, bright, modern and easy to relate to. In brief, everything the royal family isnt. [...] I have met Prince Harry and I have met Cressida, and I know whom Id rather spend a week partying with in LA. But then blondes always have more fun, as do commoners."

Sounds like an article peppered with personal opinion, but not Cressida's opinion.

This is likely the text that pinched, but none of it is Cressida. It's the journalist's view: "You could almost feel sorry for Harry Cressida is out of his league now. And as if being dumped by someone who is hotter and could become more famous than you isnt crushing enough for a mere mortal, imagine the pain for a royal boy bred to believe such a thing is impossible. But Cressida has done it.

"She has escaped the curse of being just a royal ex. Unlike Fergie and Koo Stark, who broke up with royal partners and struggled, she has thrived. Perhaps because the quality of the women that royals are dating has improved, but probably because society has finally caught up.

"Weve stopped being interested in women because of who theyre dating, celebrating what they do instead. And weve also started appreciating people for the status they have worked for rather than the privilege they inherited.
Which is why, until Harry earns an accolade more substantial than party-loving prince, Cressida will always be more impressive than him. And also why, unlike Kate, Cressida feels important as a modern, go-getting young woman."

I just posted a link to the full article in the Royals' Ex-Partners thread.

Basically the writer says that Cressida is too good for Harry, calls Cressida more impressive and states that Harry hasn't done anything substantial with his life.

Remember Katis Glass and Cressie are mates, so in that light the article is pretty nasty as far as I'm concerned

It's sentiments are premature would be my assessment. A bit overblown. I think it's amusing, and meant to be so. If Harry doesn't take himself too seriously, I could see him laughing with the article, too.

I'm not sure Harry and Cressida was that serious anyway. They seemed more like good friends hanging out, rather than actual dating. I'm sure he's proud to see her doing well, and not sitting at home shaking his 'should've could've would've' as the media like to put it.

I'm not sure he'd find it funny. I imagine he wouldn't like seeing all of his accomplishments so easily dismissed. He's worked pretty hard to shake the "Party Prince" role and be taken seriously, so I think it would kinda hurt to see it mentioned by a friend of his ex. Not to mention how she took a few digs at his brother and sister-in-law.

I don't know, maybe my sense of humor is off, but I didn't think the article was funny. It just seemed mean-spirited.

I just think for Katie Glass, who is Cressida'a go to journalist, to write an article taking so many shots at not just Harry but Kate and the family in general is a sign they didn't end things as smooth as people think

Anyway I'm surprised Cressida hasn't been nominated for an Oscar this year.. Queen of Hollywood, really???

Harry can do better in my opinion

Yep, nail-on-the-head! (Though I'm not sure about Chelsy.) Both Chelsy and Cressida would have been eaten alive by the press, especially Chelsy. Anyway, old news now.

I have to agree somewhat. Their pairing always had an unreality around it. Someone here mentioned 'friends with benefits'. I could see that being the case. Might still be the case.

Yeah, that article wasn't funny in the slightest. Unless you like that high school "mean girl" type humor.

I shocked that Cressida approved an article so petty and below the belt. She had to know it would raise eyebrows. I'm getting Diana/Andrew Morton flashbacks.

I'm not sure I understand why the Cambridges are being dragged into the feud. As far as I know, they were never photographed with Cressida. Maybe their distance and disinterest was a problem. Who knows.

Whatever Harry did to her REALLY pissed her off. He probably deserves it. lol He's never treated his girlfriends all that well.

I've given examples on this very thread of how Harry has taken Chelsy and Cressida for granted. All without even broaching the infidelity rumors. You can look at my previous posts if you so choose.

Harry and Chelsey were to combative (verbally) with each other as I recall from the articles of the day. Young and immature they outgrew each other or finally realized it was too exhausting to keep going around and around. The last thing Harry needs is a marriage like that of his parents.
