If Harry moved to Australia then I think we should make him our King. That way we would 'break the apron strings that embarrass us" as the republicans like to say and still have a Windsor as monarch.

Australians now will not accept a foreigner as Head of State and so there is no way we would accept Harry in any official role.

If we wouldn't accept Charles in the 1970s there is no way we would accept Harry now. Those days have long past.

Why would we want to import a foreigner to be Head of State?

Aren't there any Australians we could put into that position?

Had Queen Victoria sent one of her younger sons or grandsons here in 1901 it might be working today but it isn't going to work now.

No, it wouldn't be possible. Harry will be welcome here for as long as he likes to stay and who knows, he might find an Aussie bride here. (Are the PM's daughters still available?) However I'm sure the Palace knows the days of a British GG are long gone.

I think Harry should go to a other country for awhile were he can be a normal guy and a chance to date a normal girl. I think the media should give him a break like they did when William was at university. How does the press ever expect him to marry if he can't date anyone without it been all over the news and there already planning his wedding for him

Best way for Harry to date back at home, is court her in the countryside. Although, I do agree, he should get out and explore outside of his circle.

Harry seems firmly into the 'ladies who lunch' type of woman or at least a younger version and always a blonde at that.That is nether bad nor good but as the saying goes if you always do what you do you'll always get what you got. Branching out a tad would not hurt a bit.

Sweet as usual Lady Nimue

He'd have to be an Australian to have that job. He could become and Australian citizen I guess, but he has to meet the skill criteria required for entry one would assume...or not!

If Prince Henry's future wife is Orthodox, would she be able to keep her Orthodox religion?
Or is there a stipulation that she would have to convert?
The Act of Settlement did not mention the Orthodox faith.

As I understand it, she can be anything but a Roman Catholic.

The Duke of Edinburgh was baptized Greek Orthodox, but converted to the CoE when he became engaged to the current queen. Why then, if he didn't have to?

He didn't have to but as he had been raised largely in the CoE due to his schools and the navy he felt he may as well convert seeing as he had been largely worshipping CoE all his life anyway.


The law regarding Roman Catholics is about to change anyway. The spouse will be able to be RC or any other religion or no religion if they wish but the monarch must be Church of England.


When the Succession to the Crown Act is finally past people who have been excluded from the line of succession due to the faith of their spouse e.g. Prince Michael of Kent and Prince Ernest of Hanover will be restored to their place in the line. Anyone who is Roman Catholic e.g. the Earl of St Andrews children are barred as Roman Catholics. The Earl's son, Baron Downpatrick will be the first Roman Catholic Duke of Kent since the Reformation.

It was his own choice. Philip left Greece as a baby. Spent a majority of his school years in the UK and served in the Royal Navy.

Kate did a sort of similar thing before she got married to William where she got confirmed into the CoE. Would she have done that if she wasn't marrying the future head of the CoE?

I agree I think he needs to get out of that upper British circle he dates from and branch out. Like someone else said stop dating the same blonde girl over and over lol. Try dating a brunette or a red head, one that is confident in her own skin. Cause she's going need it!! Cause the press is going be always comparing her to perfect Kate.

it was tongue in cheek bertie, you didn't have to be so curt.But to take it seriously. If Harry moved to aussie, became and aussie citizen and we wanted an Australian head of state then we could still be a monarchy, with a Windsor but our own rather than one living in GB. I would much prefer that to being a republic, with the president being filled by either a political appointment or a popularity contest. I cant think of a suitable Australian dynasty that would suit as Australian monarch. And yes this is right of topic so I apologise

I think Harry should marry whomever he feels comfortable with, like his brother did. After all, he is the one who will have to create a successful marriage and family with this person and (ideally) live with her the rest of his life, not the media.

So let them compare her to Kate, who, by the way, is not perfect or even close!

Harry can marry someone his own age. Edward was 35 when he married the 34 year old Sophie. Sophie had children at age 38 & 42.

His namesake, Prince Henry the Duke the Gloucester was 35 when he married 33 year old Alice Christabel Montagu Douglas Scott. She was a few days shy of her 40th birthday when she gave birth to her first child. She had her second children 3 months before turning 43.

Yes, but both women had difficulties conceiving and giving birth. Sophie almost lost her life.

After a woman reaches 35 years the options, unfortunately start to decrease for a natural conception. I wouldn't want to see Harry as an older parent of about 40 when he has his first child, especially if his wife is near to that age too.

It's much nicer, imo, if you don't have worries like whether you will be able to have a large family if you wanted one. (I write as a mum of three, born when I was young, and having a daughter who went through IVF. She luckily had twins at nearly 40, but sometimes that option doesn't work.)

I know that here at TRF this view is not popular, but I think Cressida is a winner. I think Harry lost a real chance to be happy with a perfect fit. That has always been my sense. She's going to be okay. She is making her own way, forging a career. Good for her! Harry is being a friend. Good for him!

Lady Nimue as is usually the case I agree with you. I think Cress would have added a much needed spark of...I don't know...something to the young BRF. I don't know what she is like as a person, but unless she is simply intolerable my opinion is that Harry missed out there.
