Not only arranged marriages in royalty but also within the aristocracy. It wasn't that long ago that the London Season started with Ascot and then there were rounds of parties and balls and teas. Commonly known then as the "marriage market" for suitable gels to meet well heeled bachelors.

Prince Harry is only 31 years old. Let's leave him a few more years before they start to do the matchmaking.

PS1 ( I still believe that the Cressida is perfect for him)

PS2 (When you finally shave this beard?)

I'm so with you about the beard. He looks like a lumberjack. All he's missing is a plaid flannel shirt, jeans, and boots. Then again, I prefer a clean-shaven look in general, so I'm biased. As to Ms. Bonds being ideal for Henry, I'll have to respectfully disagree. I think that Henry would benefit from stepping completely out of his social circle, and try to meet some people through his charities. He would benefit from finding a woman like Catherine, who is serious, well-educated and comes from a close-knit family that knows how to behave des retry when necessary.

I'm so into the beard. He hasn't looked this good in quite some time. But I will pick a lumberjack look over clean and cut every time.

I've probably watched too much Outlander and everything Scottish related, but I would love it if he got together with a Scottish woman.

Lol, tumblr and all the young people are going nuts over the beard. Vanity fair has written a piece on it etc. Beards are very "in" right now and Harry is no exeption!

He kind of has his great grandfather's thing going on with the beard. It makes him look ruggedly handsome.

I don't really associate Bertie or Prince Andrew of Greece with a beard. Are you referring to the 7th Earl of Spencer or the 4th Baron of Fermoy?

I know some of the past Earls of Spencer had impressive moustaches.

I have a feeling the original poster may have been referring to George V, who would be Henry's great-great-grandfather, or Edward VII, who would be his great-great--great-grandfather. Both kings sported beards, though O I won't consider Edward VII ruggedly handsome. Not so sure about George V either. He looked more dapper, especially in his younger days, and greatly resembled his cousin, Tsar Nikolai II of Russia.

It is a bit of a family tradition. Prince Michael of Kent is bearded. I've seen Charles and Andrew briefly sporting beards during their time in the Navy, also Prince Philip.

Yes Daria, you are right. I meant his great great grandfather, George V. Sorry.

I do agree that the beard matures his look. He can even get away with scruffy hair and look decent. As I am in no danger of getting near that beard I can say wholeheartedly: Keep it!

^ I suppose you all know about the latest rumours about Harry? Life Style magazine has disgraced itself by printing a story (with Harry on the cover) about his having got a nineteen year old girl pregnant after a brief romance.

You're behind the times, Curryong. GossipCop has debunked that story. "A Kensington Palace insider assured us the baby claim was 100 percent “not true.”"

Gossipcop has obviously been spending her time hiding under Harry's bed. As foe where Life Style have been...

I'm getting kind of bored with Harry at the moment. No girlfriend to bash, no nothing. I really hope he shaves the beard soon though.

As for who he should date, I think he should date a Canadian woman to keep things interesting for the royal family. Wasn't Autumn Kelly a Canadian?

I'm very curious about this "loving silence" Harry. I personally think he's not alone.

I think you are right. I have the same feeling. It is Cressida or another girl who's identity is still a secret. I think we will know more in the same time next year.
