The fact that Kate is dating William, the heir to the heir.
The country are more bothered about it. They don't concern there selves with harry. Possible because he's seen as a party, as is his girlfriend so the public may not think his relationship is worth thinking about.
Also Harry and Chelsy have dated since 2004, Kate and William have been going for a bit longer.

A blind item about William and Lily Allen, apparently he was unimpressed with her...

This may give you some insight as to what was being said when Harry and Chelsy broke up.

Well, at first the press was in love with Kate. If people will remember correctly. IMO they have just become bored with her and Wiliam's relationship and as we all know they must sell their papers. They have not always painted the most paiseful picture of Chelsy. Not to metion her parents, there have been so many things about her smoking and double fisted drinking for exsample. I could go on if I had the time to look up other articles. This a princess does not make.

I would not say the papers were gleeful at all when K&W split, I would say they were shocked that she was out in public with a very big smile on her face so fast and happy they had something tanglible to print. Also, that you saw alot of true colors about the class issuse that seems to be 100% worse in the UK then other places.

My opinion is that people think Chesly a good fit for Harry and maybe not so good for a princess .... wear as Kate not so much a good fit for princess/Queen only because of class and not sure of the fit with William because they keep the "Emotional" side of there life to themselves ...IMO of course

I think it's because the press does not take Chelsy seriously as a princess candidate, whereas they know that Kate is very close to marrying William. It's much easier to feed into reader's glee for nasty gossip toward a future princess than push it toward a girl who does not have a shot. Ultimately, as you point out, Chelsy's family's connections with Mugabe will hurt her if she wants a future with Harry.

Question

There seems to be this overt interest in both girlfriends of the princes. It can also be said that in other countries, there is interest in the wives of those countries princes and so it kind of comes with the territory. What I wonder is if either William or Harry were to date someone from another country (even America)-would this interest be there still? I know that Mary was from Australia(?) and moved to be closer to her prince. Not sure how correct that is as I don't know all that much about her. Also, Maxima was from another country and did she move prior to meeting her husband? It just seems like the girl relocates at some point. Was there more interest once she moved or was there the same amount even when she lived in her home country? Does anyone think that William date a woman from anothe country? Harry seems alright about it. I would not be surprised if he either marries that cute blonde or a woman that is from another country. Did William date a girl prior to Kate that was from another country?

Chelsy is from Zimbabwe and her biggest problem is that her father has had some dealings with Mugabe (the dictator of Zimbabwe).
William reportedly was friendly with (and still is) Jecca Craig from Kenya. But whether he was ever actually dating her I am not sure.
Jecca and Chelsy's family are of European backgrounds.

If William or Harry went for a girl in another country it probably wouldn't be a big deal if the girl was an heiress or princess. There's a snobby overtone to a lot of the coverage with Kate because of class...

I don't ever think it would be acceptable for William or Harry to marry an American.(hate to bring up the Duchess of Windsor) We don't have A Royal House Hold and we most deffentally don't have the upper class crust wars any more, back in the 30's and 40's we did have this rather very open class issuse but unless it is hidden you don't see much of it as in Britain and other places.( unless i am too poor to notice lol) NO matter who the heir's- heirs dated there would still be the same media frenzy... as you see now.

Had Wallis Simpson been a widow or a woman who'd never married and had lived a respectable life, I don't think that her being an American would have been as big as issue. It certainly wouldn't have resulted in Edward VIII's abdication.

I think that although there's no aristocracy in North America, there's still classism. It's based on things like money, fame, and education now, not so much on bloodlines.

Mary is from Tasmania, Maxima is from Argentina.
I presume Maxima lived with Willem before marriage, she has dual citzenship but that was granted just before marriage.
Mary lived in Denmark but not with Frederik I think, interest in Mary peaked at the end of 2002 and start of 2003, she was spotted by a local newspaper.

Jecca Craig who was a possible girlfriendwas from Kenya I believe.
All three girls Kate, Chelsy and Jecca were based in the UK so they haven't really had to move here I don't think.
Any girl that dates William or Harry will create a huge amount of interest.

I don't think so. Just because you don't have a royal household doesn't put you lower down on the list. If possible it puts you higher, as girls from the USA could be seen as more down-to-earth.
Wallis was a divorcee, thats what put her out of the picture.

You have some very very rich heiresses aswell.

I just don't agree about Wallis and not in the 30's I beleve that it may be ok for Peter Phillips but not William or Harry, just my opinion all though it maybe every girls dream.
I do agree with the fact our (classism)diffrent and is baised on money,fame, education. but it is not seen as such a big deal here as there was my point

I viewed this issue and it's nothing I didn't already expect. Just the usual "push" for an engagement that Hello has been doing lately. They claim William & Kate went to a quiet out-of-the-way restaurant with friends and he baked her a cake.
So either a)Hello is turning tabloid and printing made up stories or b) this story got leaked exclusively to them.

Needless to say I didn't buy the issue.

I feel that Kate was given a big press buildup as the Golden Princess to the Heir(of the heir)to the Throne, but once out of University she did not live up to her press (imo) She did not really find a job and keep it, or build a career for herself, she was seen partying in and out of nightclubs, etc. Then the news about her Uncle did not help. Five years out if University and Kate is just viewed as a girl waiting for a proposal that may or may not come.

Chelsy on the otherhand was not especially treated great by the press initially, but she proved herself to be very much a girl of substance, earning a bachelor's degree in South Africa, then going on to earning a second degree at Leeds University, doing internships in law. Chelsy has worked hard and proven herself educationally.
I 've seen photos of Chelsy and her mother walking through the Palace gates one summer to visit Pr.Harry, it seems she must be accepted on some level.

Chelsy and Harry have dated the same amount of time as William and Kate.

The press is just pushing to get William married off to his first commoner(imo) serious girlfriend, imo, it could be Kate it could be any attractive girl, I think the press just wants a wedding while he is young, so they can milk a Cinderella-soap opera for as many years as possible.
I think he may not be marrying for years and years.

Kate and William were end of 2001/ start of 2002.
Chelsy and Harry were 2004.

Would you call Jecca Craig a aristocrat?
I don't think he's dated anyone with a title.

Kate was dating Rupert Finch in 2002. Some have reported she didn't actually begin dating Pr.William until 2003.

Quote:

Rupert Finch was the good-looking law student who dated Kate before William won over her affections.
Quote:
In the intervening years he has remained as discreet and loyal to Kate as she has to her Royal partner.
Rupert, now a trainee solicitor, met Kate and William when all three were students at St Andrews. His relationship with Kate and the circumstances under which it came to an end is not a subject on which Finch will be drawn.
Speaking last night for the first time about the relationship, he said: "It's not something I'll ever talk about. It's between Kate and me and was a long time ago."
Finch was 22 when Kate arrived at St Andrews as a 19-year-old History of Art undergraduate. He was sporting and popular and a member of the University Cricket Squad.
Daily Mail: How Rupert lost his Babykins to Big Willie.
P.S. Chelsy and Harry had also met as children, when Chelsy attended school in England, he knew of Chelsy for years. He met her again years later when he visited SA.

Kate is William's first adult girlfriend, in my opinion.

The relationship with Jecca may or may not have been any more than a deep friendship, since varied reports on the friendship, relationship surface.

Jecca is also the only one for , which an official denial was issued by the Palace.

Quote:
PRINCE William took the extraordinary step yesterday of publicly denying that he loves a girl with whom he was said to have made a 'pretend engagement'.

St James's Palace issued an unprecedented statement in which he insisted he was not and had never been romantically involved with 21-year-old Jessica 'Jecca' Craig.
William was said to be 'deeply embarrassed' by the claims because he is close to her family particularly her father, Kenyan-based conservationist Ian Craig and because he is a friend of Jessica's Old Etonian boyfriend.

This is rather interesting if true.
Setting up a shop takes time and surely she wouldn't be taking on that role if an engagement was imminent?
If this is true - and it is the Daily Mail remember - it could be pointing to a engagement not happening this year.

Yep and it was reported that William dated other girls at the beginning of university before hooking up with Kate. It's my understanding that they became a couple at the end of 2003 and were "outed" while skiing a few months later at the beginning of 2004 so they've been together 6+ years. Either way it's impossible for them to have been dating for 8 years as some people keep suggesting.

I've been suspecting these "leaks" for a while now and not just to HELLO... and the leaked stories aren't always true either.
