Yes, Queen Claude, I raised my eyebrows at that paragraph too. Does the DM know something we don't or is it just a sly dig at Camilla? You never know with the Daily Fail!

I have to say that such a development would surprise me. Ive never heard of Harry seeking out worldly, older, (presumably married) women as confidantes.

Quite the reverse, in fact, young, pretty carefree blondes have been his cup of tea! Perhaps time for a change, but no married ladies hanging about in the background, or foreground for that matter. Please!

Anyone else besides me notice that Kirstie is not only brave and cares deeply about those that served with her but is also very blond and very cute?

Yes she is. Unfortunately for Harry she has a boyfriend back in the US.

This thing to marry cousin 3rd, 4th degree for me it's arranged marriage and I doubt that Harry will accept this kind of marriage. He will marry whomever he chooses. I think Harry might have a thing for older women is very common, boys who lost their mother in childhood, to have attraction to older women, is psychological.

What makes you say that? His most public relationships have been with younger women.

what made me say, it was the article DM ... the fact that he only dating Young women do not mean anything, he can go out with older women without anyone knowing, I'm not talking about love but attraction

The DM isn't what I'd call a reliable news source so whatever they say... I'd take it with a pinch of salt. I think I'll wait for proof first.

I wouldn't rely too much on what the DM says either. I am sure Camilla, as a stepmother, would want to see her her step-son happy, but I just can't imagine her actively getting involved, making suggestions as to who he could date etc. Harry seems to be very much his own man and if the right girl comes along he'll pursue her!

To be honest, I think every member of the family and not a few of his married friends has an eye out for possible "contenders" and I'd bet my last Cent that he has found himself "paired off" or escorting women he has never met or only seen in the periphery, into dinner or at weddings.

Where there are bachelors there are scheming friends and relatives and at every dinner, party, etc, is a potential Duchess. I would even venture to guess that even his Aunt has participated, although to be fair, she probably looked him straight in the eye and told him to get real and start looking!

On the plus side, at least he is well versed in "dinner conversation" and would have no trouble . . . "did you watch the Rugby World Cup final, weren't the AB's fanb*****tastic, and Richie and Dan . . . sheer dynamite . . . ?"

Congratulations, Marg. The All Blacks were the better on the night and deserved to win.

Which aunt? He has three. I doubt the Spencer aunts will interfere though.

Harry isn't under the pressure William was under to produce offspring, so he can wait till he finds someone that really suits him. I hope he does though, sooner rather than later, because he seems to want to marry and have children.

I'm guessing MARG is referring to his aunt, the Princess Royal. The way she described the said aunt's manner just fits Princess Anne to a tee .

Get to London, England, then, PHW. It's always best if you are in the same city!

I don't think Anne would even care about who Harry dated. Let alone try to match make. That seems like a totally Fergie thing.

ANYBODY, no matter who they are, would be well advised to read 'Emma', by the great writer Jane Austen, and take to heart its salutary lesson's.

NO good can come of trying to pair off individuals YOU think are suited... it is generally disastrous, and [when it goes 'pear-shaped'] YOU are, and [are rightly] held responsible.

Royal families have had arranged marriages for centuries and some of them were quite happy and successful.

Dear lord. There is a difference between pushing two people together and to think "Hey, this girl seem his type, maybe I should introduce them".
