His behavior in public (except for once and we all have bad days) has been impeccable imo. But he may be wanting in certain crucial ways, at least for the one who said 'no'. The other one he tossed so we will never know if in the end she would have said 'no'. (In fact, she may have said 'yes' only to find herself tripped up). All sheer speculation, of course.
I know from personal experience that really smart people can fail in school. And the fact that some people don't do well in school doesn't mean they are not smart.

My gifted niece who is 10 yrs old and currently reading Harry Potter in english (which is quite somthing in the Netherlands) doesn't do all that well in school and her grades are not what they could be.

I can imagine that Harry doesn't find reading and school a lot of fun because of his dyslexia and would therefor avoid uni.

Interesting Chelsy Davy "more intelligent" than Prince Harry because she became a lawyer and he is a soldier. A lawyer, ah yes very reputable, very prestigious. High levels of individual aptitude and awareness are a necessity. Much more than a soldier. Even one who was a co-pilot and gunner of a modern military helicopter in combat. Simple, right? Just moving a stick around, pulling a trigger, reading some numbers and talking into a headset. A seven year old can do that! I think some are over-rating Ms. Davy's IQ and underestimating Prince Harry's intelligence.

Now, it seems that based on the info that has been supplied the possibility of Prince Harry and Chelsy Davy rekindling a more than platonic relationship has improved. All in all the final results being marriage. This despite nearly half a decade of amicable relations amongst each other as well as romantic relationships with separate individuals. Fascinating.

Maybe I'm reading this wrong but this seems very insulting to those in the military. We owe our safety to them

I think the post is ironic!I read it in that way at least: some posters seem to value intelligence as education!

My husband is military aviation (helicopters) and no one does a job in the military like Harry does without being smart and having intelligence.

As far as the relationship with Chelsy...doubtful at best.

I hadn't realised he had dyslexia, though i knew Beatrice did.

Edward and Sophie married around the age of 34 and that worked out well for them. But i wouldn't like to see Harry go into his 40s without being married; it must be so much easier for each Royal if they have a partner to work with/confide in.

He wants to marry, he has said, so we'll see.
Gee, I don't know about that. George Clooney managed to score an amazing, intelligent and erudite woman in 36 year old Amal . . . and he's 53!

Why so? Do you know what her 'life plan' is? Or, perhaps she, as so many do, discovered that the job she is qualified for is not quite what she imagined it would be. There is no shame in that.

It was 'Wit', 'Irony', 'Sarcasm', all wasted because it sailed right over so very many heads.

You called it right, it was indeed irony and yes, there still is a very large percent of the population, as reflected on this forum, that believe in the snob value attached to a university degree.

They make that stunningly simple error of mistaking a superior education for a superior intellect!

Did I say it wasn't? I know the Middletons often go there. My point is that the Cambridges are able to go as well, and we will not see any pictures other than those in airports.
Do we see pictures of the RF at Balmoral? Only when they attend church or something rather public.

I think they have lots of time when they are private, with no cameras around to bother them.

What if there was a steadfast rule that a British Royal Prince had to marry before his 29th birthday? Some inheritances here in the United States use to have stipulations like this numerous years ago.
What does Prince Henry do then?

Had Harry been born into a situation where such an invidious condition applied, I am sure that from the moment he left school, if not before, he would have had a range of suitable "gels" paraded before him at every opportunity, and that the importance of selecting one of them would have been constantly pounded into him and the pressure would have increased with every year so that there would be no chance he would not have arranged to marry someone long before the relevant time. And I say "arranged" intentionally.

I wish I had that privileged position. It's every young man's dream to have a range of suitable girls paraded before him.

There have been plenty of times that they have been illegally photographed at Mustique. The most recent example was when they were pregnant with George(the blue bikini photos). It was how the public became aware of Nico Jackson. William filed a press complaint about it in 2013.

As for Balmoral, it's not cost efficient for the paps to travel up there. Especially, since the young royals are rarely there.Though, that didn't stop the paps from photographing Mike and Carole at Balmoral on Nov, 2010, when the engagement rumors were running rampant.

There have been plenty of invasive shots at the Sandringham estate. Too many to list. Most of the family has been victimized there. I'm sorry, but I find your claim, that the royals have tons of privacy, to be absolutely ludicrous.

There is no fairy tale for whomever Harry marries. She gets an admission ticket to the media's lion's den instead. What a dubious honor.

The royals do have plenty of privacy. Their privacy is only violated once in a blue moon. Which is wrong, of course.

Your blue moons seem as common as a sunrise.

So we will have to agree to disagree. Just like I will never agree with the people who claim the royals are lizard people. We are at an impasse.

Ahhh.. methinks you were born a wee bit too late. Used to be that at the beginning of the social season, the "deb"utantes were presented to society and a whole whirlwind of parties and socials followed. It was matchmaking at it highest and finest.

Here is one of the articles of the event I mentioned. He spent a lot of time with Chelsy. Of course that doesn't mean much but it is something. Hehehe!

It seems to me that Chelsy Davy can get an ingrown toenail removed, and the press will see it as a sign that she's going back to Harry.

Ha ha Maybe if she became a nun that would put a stop it all.
But then again probably not.

I almost missed this post. Interesting, that you believe Harry might marry a divorcée. The Church of England gave Charles hell for marrying Camilla, since Andrew P-B is still alive. They might be more lenient with Harry. Otherwise, he can marry in Scotland like Anne and Tim did.

Speaking of divorcées. I would be very amused if he started dating Katie Valentine(née Percy).

Firstly, the press would have to get more creative with a Katie and a Kate in the mix. The headlines would be a hoot.

Secondly, it would further illustrate the incestuous nature of the aristo set. Cressida is Jacobi's sister, Jacobi is one of Chelsy's best friends. Katie is Missy's sister, Missy is Chelsy's other best friend. And there were rumors Missy dated Jacobi during her brief split from Tom Van Straubenzee.

It could be Harry's coup de grâce to his relationship with Chelsy.
