I'm going to disagree. We cannot know, of course, what Harry has 'learned' from who, but I'd say the bruising that Chelsy and Cressida underwent were the 'learning'. JMO. There'll be no more public girlfriends. That's over.

Only public when it's serious and she is going to be exposed to how things are...more or less what happened with Kate.

I was just looking through an old scrap album the other day of my niece's, who followed the first years of the Harry-Chelsy romance. In spite of Capetown newspapers posting items of 'a tall blonde' seen with Harry in Capetown clubs in April 2004 and Chelsy being seen in Argentina when Harry was there on his gap year, it was several months before the British tabs tumbled to the fact that there was something going on.

In fact Harry and Chelsy had met months earlier in the late autumn of 2003. So it is possible for a royal to fly under the radar with romances, though of course it's a lot better if the girlfriend is in a foreign country! Harry is a lot wiser now than he was in 2003/04.

I think that Harry gave a very vague but also spot on answer.


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...0on%20Facebook



1) He was there for a very important cause and he certainlywanted the focus to remain on that, not on his private life. 2) He may be a bit fed up with the press bouncing back and forth from Chelsy and Cressida in theri articles. Maybe he wanted to avoid those rumors and deny any rekindled romance in a polite way. 3) Maybe he has a very early interest in someone new and or he could be just as single. Thus, he is a bit tired of hearing the word "marriage". If he is single marriage is very very far away. If he is seeing someone, he just want the press to know that dating someone doesn't mean jumping to wedding soon after.

Certainly he relates to women discreetly, of course he would not be alone all this time, but don't believe it's serious and I believe when he says he still does not think of marriage, I don't not know the attachment that people have by marriage, it seems that we live in the eighteenth century. He's only 31 years old, for crying out loud !!!

Prince Harry is enjoying the single life too much to marry on veteran trek | Daily Mail Online

Prince Harry said exactly the right thing. He didn't want to distract attention from the cause he was supporting. Ofcourse he wouldn't have said anything about his love life.
He hasn't denied anything either, like you see now in the headlines (Prince Harry Not Ready to Settle Down). He just said there are a lot of things to be done before settling down. If he is in a rekindled relationship with Cressida or in a relationship with someone we don't know yet, he will come out with it when they are ready and they are sure of eachother. For all we know there has been something going on in secret between Harry and a lady and they could become engaged in the near future. I for one believe there is something going on in his lovelife and we will know in time. I don't see him wait with marriage until he is in his late thirties. I base that on the fact that he has said in public he would like to settle down and find someone to share the pressure. I don't think he would have said that if he plans to wait until he is 38,39. He knew this statement earlier this year would unleash all kinds of speculation in the press and would increase pressure on and interest in his lovelife.

His interest in settling down gave no indication that there was anyone there as he stated that same time that he finds it cool not having a gf. Why do people forget these things. The interest in him being with someone is far too strong to believe he is fine with it despite proof of a gf there.

I have a hunch that he will never allow the press to vet any female companion again. This may be the hard lesson both his father and brother illuminated, plus his own experience. It's just not worth having that kind of public buzz around a relationship. I am suspecting that he will appear to be single from here on out.

There will be an announcement of an engagement when they have made that decision but before that, complete secrecy. JMO.

The media must give Harry the time and space to even find a young lady to date. He hasn't really had a full on relationship since he dated Chelsy. Just because he's a famous and rich eligible royal bachelor, doesn't mean it's easy for him to find a nice young lady for him to even consider to be his future princess. Dating isn't easy, and it can't be easy for him to have the media drumming up Chelsy and Cressida all the time. From what I see, those two young ladies are still good friends of his and they run in the same circles.

I've always said, the best places for him to date is in the countryside. Wine, dine and romance them at Highgrove, Balmoral, and Sandringham for a couple of years and then make some city debut's. William & Catherine got their start behind the walls of St Andrews in Scotland. Their private friendship and courtship is what gave them a good and solid foundation for them to withstand the pressures of the world beyond the university walls. Even when they hit their bump in the rode, it was the privacy of the countryside where they retreated to in order to figure things out. Privacy is key in the royal fishbowl.

1) It isn't possible

2) If the fiancee only gets the full brunt of the press after the engagement is announced and wedding plans are underway... wow, that could spell trouble.

Well, one never knows what is possible. Everyone currently thinks Harry is a singleton. I doubt it myself, and no one is the wiser. A great deal can go forward under-the-radar. Anyway, in 5-10 years (if we all haven't melted) we'll see who was right.

The media constantly trying to set him up with someone and kp hardly addressing the rumors ,shows that the palace isn't even trying to fool anyone that he is single. It wouldn't make sense to hide someone for the dating portion to expose her to the scrutiny for the rest of the time they're married. Who would put up with being the hidden gf while the press links him to other women like his exes.

A woman who is not a publicity hound and appreciates the time to really get to know Harry without being hounded by the press. The best kind of person. If ever there is a recipe for disaster it is the hounding by the press before the relationship is really solidified. When Harry comes forward with an official lady friend, I prophesy that they will have already been together for some time and if not actually engaged by the public unveiling, they will be very close to being so. JMO.

The media attention and branding that scared Caroline away proves it's not easy for Harry to find a steady girlfriend. It's about finding a lady that's able to take the lumps and bruises that goes along with dating him.

I disagree. It shouldn't be a gauntlet. That's not normal. Once married there will be protection, so of what use was the gauntlet?

BTW who is, or was, Caroline?

Perhaps at first, when meeting Harry, a potential girlfriend may know that he's a popular Prince of the UK and that he is in the limelight quite a bit but perhaps not aware of just how much the media can cause disturbances to every day life. Another big thing they'd have to get used to is the idea of Harry's protection officers never ever too far away.

To me it would be like any normal woman meeting a man she finds she's very compatible with and quickly finding out that it was quite difficult to actually have a dating relationship and get to know each other because the man is constantly surrounded by his friends and family with virtually no alone time possible. Quite a turn off.

I do think that for any relationship Harry may have now or in the future, he will do his best to keep it as under the radar as he possibly can for as long as he can. Perhaps even to the point of sending the media on wild goose chases for red herrings.

I also think Harry can be with someone and he will only assume this relationship at the right time.
