Does Cressie actually do anything nowadays, apart from attending social events?

She has a role in ITV's new series “The White House Farm Murders”.

The fact that Cressida reunited with HWS after breaking up with Harry in 2014 (two years after they met), speaks volumes.

HWS speaks poignantly about his older brother, James, who committed suicide at 21:
https://www.standard.co.uk/lifestyle...-a3293766.html
"James’s death helped [HWS] grow up 'and appreciate that life is short so you have to make the most of the opportunities in front of you... I think of him every day and will forever do all I can to prevent more people doing what James did.'"

BTW, HWS' mother's name is Clare Mountbatten via her second marriage to George Mountbatten, 4th Marquis of Milford Haven. Clare's first husband, Nicholas Philip Wentworth-Stanley, is HWS' father. Therefore, neither Clare nor her son, HWS, have any blood relationship to the Mountbattens.

Harry and Chelsy likely remember and cherish their relationship for what it was and what it meant to them when they were younger. They have both well since moved on.

I never heard about a 2015 attempt to re-connect. Is that what Harry's Katie Nicholl's biography claims? Is it accurate? Anyone else hear this? Wouldn't this have been right when Harry and Meghan were meeting and starting to sizzle?
While I don't trust Katie Nichol, I have read in other sources that Prince Harry visited Chelsy in South Africa in the fall of 2015, ostensibly to try and rekindle their romance, or it is said to ask her to marry him one last time, as he hadn't found anyone else he felt as close to by that point. Chelsy turned him down for the final time, and Harry moved on for good.

As other posters noted earlier, Harry and Meghan did not meet until the summer of 2016. And as Harry said, "the stars aligned."

Here's another lovely pic of Cressida at the Evening Standard Theatre Awards (scroll down to second pic) with photos of other attendees, including actor winner, Ralph Fiennes, along with Claire Foy, Joely Richardson, Jenna Coleman, Christian Louboutin, and Idris Elba, et al. Lady Kitty Spencer is shown huddled up close to Countess Emma Weymouth of Longleat. Dame Anna Wintour is wearing a very interesting dress with fur...

When Cress does it right she does it right. Her casual boho look is like some 90s teen. But her evening looks have a classic beauty to them.

Chelsy is happy in her life. She never really would have been happy as a Royal. It's good her and Harry realized before too late.

It us said both Harry and William had trouble finding women that were willing to take on Royal life. When William and Kate were on their break, that seemed clear. Not the dream of many modern women to being Cinderella.

I'm not so sure that Harry kept proposing to Chelsy and getting turned down again and again. I followed the romance of Harry and Chelsy very closely in those years and it was incredibly rocky. Both were inclined to stubbornness and both had quick tempers.

In those circumstances it is logical to think that Harry as well as Chelsy called it off several times in those years. It's become almost written in stone since that Harry was so incredibly devoted to Chelsy that he kept proposing marriage even when it was clear (and it was) that Chelsy refuted any idea of Royal life.

However, for several years before the final break there was a pattern of breakups and reconciliations running alongside Harry's dedication to an Army career and Chelsy wishing to become a lawyer. At that stage of their lives this was also driving them apart.

So I don't believe in the multiple proposals, sorry, nor do I believe Katy Nichol's theory of one last proposal in South Africa in 2015. These two always had great fun together and there may have been a brief fling, but they were both set of separate courses in the lives then.

Cressida, as Ingrid Seward stated, became extremely upset by public scrutiny of herself, clothing, hair, shoes etc, during the two years with Harry. She quite obviously didn't want a life in the public eye.

However, I read from quite a few sources at the time that there were also quarrels over money (she didn't have any to go to various overseas venues) and a realisation between the two of them that they had little in common really. So it was a bit more complex than Cress not wanting a Royal life. There was also a strong implication from media sources at the time that Harry was eager to move on.

I never followed Harry and his previous serious girlfriends as closely as you. I tend to believe Harry may have asked Chelsy to marry him at least once or twice, or they surely discussed marriage at some point. i've seen a video retrospective on the relationship where it does mention emotional volatility between them, which is understandable because they were young and dealing with a lot in their lives. Harry, as we now know, was still dealing with grief and anger over his mother's death, and he was emotionally needy.

I've read that Harry enjoyed being around Chelsy's close-knit family (much as William loved being around Kate's family during their courtship). Indeed, Harry's military career was problematic for Chelsy, as well as the royal duties that took precedence. Chelsy is said to have been perturbed too by Harry's roving eye, and the fact she was often asked to make scheduling sacrifices, while she didn't feel Harry made enough of a commitment or showed enough consideration to try and make more time for her. Ultimately, Chelsy did not like the cameras in her face 24/7, and she also wanted the freedom to pursue a career unencumbered by royal constraints.

I've heard the same as you describe about Cressida. Frankly, in a number of public photos of Cressida and Harry together, they do not seem especially close or happy being together, regardless of whatever closeness they shared privately. In addition, Cress, as I said was on the rebound from a prior relationship with Harry Wentworth Stanley. Significantly, she returned to HWS afer breaking up with Prince Harry. Also, Cressida was said to be upset about the media speculating marriage between her and PH right off the bat, and repeatedly bringing up her mother's colorful past in the 1960s and 1970s.

Yes, I've heard that too, and it certainly makes sense, after everyone knows what happened to Diana. In regard to William, I recently read that William and Kate briefly split in 2004 at a time when William became interested in pursuing Isabella Calthorpe:
https://www.marieclaire.com/celebrit...leton-jealous/ scroll down

Isabella apparently did not want to become involved with William because she felt being with him would destroy the career she wanted to build... Isabella later met and married Sam Branson (son of Richard Branson). Isabella was invited to W&K's wedding in 2011, and she is reportedly friends with Princesses Beatrice & Eugenie.

Here are other discussions of K&W's brief splits in 2004 and again in 2007, when they were still young and trying to find themselves:

https://www.cosmopolitan.com/uk/repo...reak-up-split/

https://www.harpersbazaar.com.au/cul...althorpe-17399

Both William and Harry are fortunate in finding the life partners that are right for them. Their relationship trajectories are quite different, but both couples are very well suited.

The fact that both William and Harry were allowed to do it their own way, find their own wives (not restricted to specific social circles/backgrounds) to me demonstrates that the BRF realized some of the errors of the past in their way of thinking/doing when it came to marriage. No one wants a repeat of the failed marriages.

For sure. The royal family learned a lot over the years the hard way about the importance of allowing young people to choose their own partnership destinies.

The Queen is said to have advised all of her grandchildren to first and foremost be sure they were very compatible with whoever they desired to marry, because there would be no more divorces countenanced in the royal family. Therefore, the Queen was lenient and in keeping with the times re allowing her grandchildren to have live-in relationships with a chosen significant other prior to marriage.

William and Harry both had the example of their parents' troubles to make them cautious about the life partners they ended up choosing. In regard to Prince Harry in particular, it was surely important for him to have experienced his prior relationship ups-and-downs with Chelsy and Cressida, so that he knew better the qualities he wanted to have in a partner. He also learned the importance of protecting a new relationship in order to get to know that person out of the 24/7 media glare. So when he met Meghan, PH was very prepared to ensure their privacy. Plus they both must have found it amazing to hit it off right away and to discover they had so much in common. Similar to PH, Meghan had her own relationship learning curve via two past serious relationships, i.e., her marriage/divorce with Trevor Engelson, and her two-year courtship with Cory Vitiello in Toronto.

From the beginning, the relationship PDA between Prince Harry and Meghan was significant, as was Harry's more relaxed, happy and mature demeanor.

Very, although it might make family gatherings a bit awkward.

But I've heard Cressida is soon to be engaged to her previous boyfriend, Harry Wentworth-Stanley.

(Although, he never seems to accompany her to many events, so who knows?)

Yes, and I thought that Holly Branson was the third member of the lookalikes.
