Considering Harry said just months ago he'd love to have children 'right now' but obviously there is a 'process' involved leads me to believe he isn't content with being unattached. Obviously he can't force things and it won't happen overnight but it seems he is longing for married life.

He knows he has a lot of pressure to settle down from the public. He isn't content with people who can't deal with him being single and having to answer questions about kids because of his brother. They want to write about him doing more than enjoying his life as it is, and create rumors to support what they want it to be.

When you look back on the last few decades, there seems to have been quite a gap of years between the marriages of royal siblings. I can't see Harry getting married for a good few years yet.

You know- it was so much easier 200 or 300 hundred years ago when a eligible Royal Prince or Princess could be expected to marry a cousin... Harry could have married the perfect Royal bride in Beatrice and she could keep on being a senior working princess and everybody wins!

A lot of times too, the marriage contract was drawn up when the couple it concerned were still wee ones in the cradle. It was more about alliances in times of war, conjoining lands, preserving a bloodline and most of all, power.

Perhaps this is a reason why 200-300 years ago, it was perfectly acceptable for there to be mistresses and lovers. Feelings for each other rarely factored into the reason for a marriage.

I think I prefer how its done now by far. Harry will find the one that's just right for him based on mutual attraction, similar interests and most of all, love.

Glimpses of looking like Diana is harmless enough. However, if he inherited any of her volatility (the Spencer gene for temper and what-have-you), Harry has a lot he needs to get in hand before any woman (in this day) will or would put up with for even the (dubious) grace of a title and big house in the country.

If he had we would have found out long ago I think. Something would have set him off or at least their would be rumors floating around.

Don't assume. We saw some of it once, only once (that I know of). It's there, but we all have our foibles for sure. In his case, unlike Diana, he may only exhibit with his circle who will not break ranks for a moment of tittle-tattle with the press.

Both boys have shown signs of temper (or stubborness) in the past but it seems pretty normal type....I've heard of anything excessive in either though...and the way to press is...I find it hard to believe we wouldn't of heard.

There are several very rich girls around the world who would love to marry Harry, the rich aren't just in London and Europe. In other countries there are also very rich girls, well born and well educated as Chelsy, Cressida and other girls of the inner circle of Harry's friends. In another forum, a girl said that Harry should marry only with a British, I didn’t understand why and seemed preconception. And I don’t think that's so important, I think what really matters is love, affinity, attraction and companionship, if not, it would be easier an arranged marriage with the daughter of a tycoon or that belonged to a noble family, but we know that this kind of marriage is doomed to failure and I don’t think Harry would accept for his temper, unless he was pressured by his family.
And I don't think he should be in a hurry. He loves to have fun, go to parties, clubs ... will be that he would be willing to give up everything and turn it just a family man?

I also think he should stop to relate to ex girlfriends and with the girls from their circle of friends, it seems boring , tiring, and is even ridiculous, a famous prince, who has the opportunity to meet women of the world whole, be limited to a restricted group and always with the same options. The world is too big !!

Oh I totally agree with you cat. This may sound totally weird but I kind of have a picture in my mind of Harry, through his work in and around wounded and disabled service personnel, meets and falls in love with either staff that works along with him or an actual wounded warrior herself.

Its pretty much a given that people will meet like minded souls doing what they love to do best and if Harry should happen to meet someone compassionate and caring enough to give of themselves to others, she's really going to fit right in with Harry's passionate endeavors supporting what he, himself, deems needed to be done.

I really don't think money, background and/or education are big prerequisites in this at all. Harry really doesn't go about flaunting his wealth, likes to be pretty much a regular guy around people and he's surely in no rush to look at educational degrees for his wall. Harry's more a heart and soul kinda guy if you ask me.

I think like that too. I would love for him to relate to someone he knew in his social works. A mature woman, sensitive ... When he was here in my country, all the people who had the pleasure of meeting him in person said the same things about him, he is simple, humble, not ostentatious and super affordable, I don't believe that wealth is an important requirement for he relate to someone, if he was related only rich girls, it was because they had easier access to him, for middle-class women, it is more difficult to get to him.

I think Osipi and cat are on to something. The woman that catches his attention may not be from his social circle. He's known them all for years but hasn't fallen madly in love. There is no reason to suspect that's going to change anytime soon.

Harry could meet her through his contacts in the military, past and present, or working with his charities, then again just like Fred he could start chatting to a really nice woman in a pub . . .

Love happens when it happens.

I do wonder why you had to make that comment about Diana when there was no need. I thought I wouldn't reply as it only starts the anti Diana team to spring into action. But I have to admit it got the better of me. It would be nice if just for once someone could make an innocent remark of Diana and it just be left at that. MO

Need is not really an issue, is it? When it comes to all we say here, anyway. My wondering is honest. It is a question I have when I watch him. Where is Diana? It's always stated that his people-skills stem from her. So I wonder about other character traits. Sorry if the musing unsettled you.

There's volatility in the Windsors as well. King George VI was known for his 'gnashes', King George V was often angry with his family, and Prince Charles is rumoured to have a bad temper as well. If Harry or William have bad tempers, there's enough blame to put on both sides of the family.

Then there's the DoE...he's known to have a sharp/quick temper.

Princess Ann is known to be similar to the DoE.

OK! I think we can all agree that Harry is a chip off the old Mountbatten block and doesn't suffer fools gladly. The only real difference is how they each deal with said fools.

Anyone besides me wonder why Chelsy has disappeared? Not usual for her to be 'off air' from social media for this length of time. Jacobi at least lets things leak a bit...
