Beatrice's ex Dave Clarke and his fiancee in Cannes | Daily Mail Online


No matter how much Beatrice says she is happy for him, I think things like this must make her cringe.
And he seems insensitive.

Well, Bea was in Cannes, now Dave is in Cannes. They're all living their lives. The man has moved on and look very happy. For a peace of mind it's better to wish someone well and be happy for them.

I never knew Beatrice dated a Dave "Clarke". The Mail's headline writers appear to be in top form.

Obviously we don't really know who ended the relationship or whether it was mutual. But there are lots of stories like this, where a man dates one woman for a long time and doesn't marry her, then gets engaged quickly to another woman and many times, the first woman is upset. Which I certainly would be, too. You might question what is wrong with you that he didn't want to marry you but knew so quickly with someone else. Not to say that Beatrice is experiencing those feelings, but it's also possible that she is.

Yes, I actually wondered on the wedding day whereabouts Earl Percy (George) was, as he and Pippa have been such good friends for years. (Though I have to say I haven't seen them about together in the last couple of years.) Then I read about Missy Percy's big birthday party on the same date.

Although Pippa is friendly with the Percy family and has stayed at Alnwick Castle several times I've always thought of George Percy being Pippa's primary friend in the family.

I've never seen Missy or Pippa hanging out together, for instance. Perhaps Missy holds big birthday bashes every year on her birthday and didn't want to change the date for her 30th. Some posters on other forums have spotted Pippa's university mates JJ Jardine and Ted Innes-Kerr (and partners) at Pippa's wedding, and supposedly someone spotted George Percy there with a girlfriend. However, some guests' photos haven't appeared on media outlets sites, so it's difficult to say whether George was there or at Syon.

If Missy did receive an invitation she almost certainly refused the invite due to Tom van's attendance. Who wants to be meeting up with your ex spouse on an otherwise joyous occasion!

Missy and Pippa must hang out sometimes, since they are tennis partners.

I did hear that George went to the Syon party instead of the wedding.
But I very much doubt it was with a girlfriend.
He doesn't seem the type.

Yes, Pippa was also just a nice platonic friend of George's. Also, after much searching, nobody has come up with a photo of George at the wedding so I do think he was at Syon with his sister and co.

I can honestly say that is something that never crossed my mind. Went to many weddings, charity events children's weddings, etc., where my ex-husband was also attending. Danced with him at many. Once when my sept-daughter found out that he was alone on Christmas, invited my ex to family Christmas dinner at her home when, of course, my second husband and I plus rest of family were there. No big deal. We all got along. Just because our 12 years marriage went sour, didn't mean he didn't exist in my new family's life. Never wanted him dead, just refused to tolerate his gambling any more.

I am glad you noticed this too. Tom is best buddies w/William and rumor has it that Kate was trying to fix up Tom w/new girlfriends while his divorce from Missy wasn't even finalized.

My guess is that the Percys may have been invited but chose to continue with the 30th birthday party because Pippa's wedding included not only Tom but William & Kate too. Thus I can see Missy having her own birthday and the rest of the Percys - Katie & George - going to Missy's party as support. The Percy family seems pretty close knit.

Katie as in the duchess of Cambridge didn't read too closely in your outrage

Says the Percy's, George and Katie,.... As in Missy's siblings George and Katie Percy.

Both Melissa are publically and commonly known as Missy and Tom. It was quite clear who is being talked about. Bit bratty to pretend not to know who it is. Not like we are calling Catherine, Kity or something bizarre.

I highly doubt Misdy not attending had anything to do with her ex. They move I'm the same social circles and rub elbows all the time. While Tom may be very close to William, it was not Willisms event. Missy and George have been friends with Pippa for over a decade. I highly doubt To,pm being there was a deciding factor.

Could we not do that? As unpleasant as it is for the person being addressed, it is also unpleasant for other people to read. The world is so polarized and unpleasant, one can understand being jumpy, but.....would be nice not to see such quick negative retorts.....just because. Please?

Someone did come up with a photo of George at Pippa's wedding ceremony.
So apparently he attended the ceremony but then went to his sister's birthday party in the evening.

What is Chelsy taking a holiday FROM exactly? She's seems to have turned into the ultimate socialite since she left the legal profession. And as she and Harry first broke up early in 2009 and split permanently early in 2011, I don't suppose Harry's missing anything, six years later! He's moved on, she's moved on, nothing to see, folks.

To be fair, why should she be?
She's a rich girl who only has to please herself.

(If I were that wealthy, I don't know that I'd work either!)

I agree but if she married Harry she would have needed to work.
