I don't think Harry necessarily needs a woman with a stable family background. It's not the family that's necessarily important, it's the having a support system (both in and out of the Firm).

Harry also doesn't have to have a consort with aristocratic or royal pedigree.

What he needs is a consort who he's in love with, and who loves him. Someone who he has common interests in, someone who likes to do the things he does (and he likes to do the things she does). Someone who has a support system outside of the Firm - it's not Catherine's family that makes her a good consort, it's that she has someone (in this case her family) that she can turn to for support. This support system needs to be composed of people who are able to be discreet. This is also seen in Harry himself, as well as William, Charles, and other royals - they all have their group of close, discreet friends.

Harry's consort also needs to be someone who is comfortable being in the limelight, but doesn't necessarily seek it out. She needs to be able to handle the pressure of the press, without needing (or wanting) the attention that comes with it.

Well said, Ish. Exactly what Harry needs. I haven't been following Harry on these threads so I don't know what his dating life is now, but I have seen him on American TV doing an outstanding and dignified presentation of the part of him he called "Prince Harry". From my personal point of view, it is best if Harry does not marry a royal or a girl from a noble family who shares genes with him. He should follow his brother and find an outstanding commoner.

I don't think the aristocratic pedigree matters. The likelihood of him marrying someone so closely related that genetics will make a difference is slim.

As for the whole commoner/aristocrat argument it doesn't make a difference one way or another. There have been great royal consorts without (or with minimal) aristocratic pedigree, there have been great royal consorts with aristocratic pedigree. Likewise, there have been disasters on both fronts.

I still think he missed the boat by not snatching up Holly Branson. He really would have satisfied the old tradition of marrying a Virgin bride.

Osipi, I read back on the previous page of this thread, which I didn't have time to do earlier, and I see that Harry is a fourth cousin once removed of Cressida. Well, that puts them at least within the permissible range of permitted marriage given by the Church of England (at least given in my old 19th century Book of Common Prayer from England). They are just inside the pale of permitted familial relationships.

Inbreeding does not matter, Osipi, if there are no bad genes in the family. No one has perfect genes, as we are finding out more and more in studies, so actually there is more reason now to hope you don't marry someone with close family ties, because some genes only express when both parents have them. And then, they don't just express, they SHOUT.

TBH, after the US tour I think he's back on military duties. At least that's what I read somewhere.

No. I'm Britain has plenty of families who can be just as discreet as the Middleton's. We didn't hear a word from Chelsy Davy and her family.

If Harry marries Pippa and one of the marriages end, it will be very awkward for everyone involved.

But seriously, there ARE a few other women out there besides Chelsy, Cressie and Pippa.

My hope is they (Chelsy & Harry) get back together. Still think they best suited to him and she will be a minor royal as the years go on.
Follow your heart Prince Harry! Dont do what your father did and live to regret letting THE one go....

Is Harry's girl Cressie the new Fergie? As Prince gets closer to party-loving socialite, the VERY racy snapshots that pose a chilling question for the royals | Mail Online

Very unfair to compare her to the Duchess of Cambridge.

She seems to be an absolutely perfect match for Harry.
