I must admit I didn't realize the connection with Prince Philip, with her current beau. I just realized his mothers current husband, his stepfather, is the current Earl of Milford haven, the eldest son of Philips cousin David.

The two seem quite happy. I too am anticipating a coming engagement.

Well, well, well! No hanging around for nearly ten years for Dave 'the Smiler' this time. Somehow I expected something like that!

I somehow get the feeling a certain Royal wasn't ready to get hitched. He moved on.

Unfortunately Dman, I had exactly the opposite impression.

I don't know. I get the feeling things didn't go down as some people may think. Look how fast Pippa moved on from her old boyfriend and now getting married. Sometimes people know what they want and when your significant other don't want the same, you simply move on. This guy has clearly moved on. It's sad we didn't get the York wedding everyone was waiting on though.

Well, well, there are still Eugenie and Jack.
I hope Dave didn't cheat on Beatrice with this girl.

Oh sh.t

What is it with guys that are in a relationship for a long time, break up and get engaged to someone else within the year. You see that happening so much.

Of course, we don't know the dynamics of Beatrice's relationship with Dave, but I'd be pissed if I was her. You invest so much time and emotion in a relationship to end up with nothing and him with someone else in no time.

Dave was first seen with his now fiancée in October in New York. He and Beatrice apparently split up in July after (according to the tabloids) talks about his not proposing marriage. It seems there's now a baby on the way for the couple, according to posters on another forum.

Gotta make sure that baby is born within wedlock to keep it proper I guess.

And even more reason for Beatrice to be pissed.

Me too.

I think Dave wanted the perks (with Beatrice) but not the commitment.

The guy have money and his own life. I think he wanted a wife and family and Beatrice wasn't ready. According to Rebecca English sources, Beatrice is happy for him.

Well, she could hardly say anything else.
But I don't believe it, I think Beatrice must be feeling hurt.

Sadly, lots of relationships stretch out for a long time and then don't culminate in marriage. I think mature couples should marry while the flame is hot and new.

It could be like the line in Sex and City....Dave was the cab and he was ready to marry. His light was on...the next person who got in the cab...is now his fiancee.

If Dave was ready to get married and Beatrice was not...they did the best thing by breaking up. There is nothing worst than a couple dating for a significant amount of time [i.e. years], marry and than divorce within a short time of their marriage. And Beatrice doesn't have the option of a divorce...the press will have a field day with that one!

I had a girlfriend who dated her now ex husband for at least six years...they married [on my birthday no less...we all disliked him for various reasons] they weren't even married for a year before they started having problems [he was cheating]. While in Marriage Counseling, he admitted that he wasn't ready to marry but only proposed and married her because they had been together for so long and it was the next step. Mind you...she didn't pressure him to propose and get married.

My response to that when she told me was that just meant they should have broken up sooner and not gotten married.

Apparently, for whatever reason..Beatrice and/or Dave didn't think it was necessary to go to the next step. Someone wasn't ready.

Hopefully for the sake of his child, Dave has chosen wisely.

I agree with ladingas. I don't think relationships that last for almost a decade with no talk between the two people of marriage or a future engagement or at least settling down together, in the first couple of years can just drift on and on with no resolution. I think that's what happened in this case. And I always got the feeling that Beatrice was more invested in their relationship than Dave was.

I do think Beatrice dodged a bullet with Dave Clark; I always felt he was smarmy.

But I believe she is bound to feel hurt, even if she's putting a decent face on it.

(I truly hope she doesn't attend the wedding; she can easily contrive an important event so she can avoid it).

I could see how she could possibly be hurt if he professed deep love for her. To declare love for someone and less than a year later...marry someone else? In hindsight, it can make you question the feelings that were expressed by both parties.

On the other hand, if your ex marries someone less than a year after you were in a relationship with that person, it can make you feel like you dodged a bullet.

I was always Meh about Dave Clark but he was her first serious boyfriend [in my mind, I know she dated that Italian guy] so I never put too much stock in their relationship. I never saw marriage as the end game for Dave and Bea. I think Bea needs to find herself before she marries. I think she has an idea but she is still searching.
