Methinks the tabloids were playing games, stirring the pot, making things up. Creating smoke where there was no fire. For some tabloid fun.

It's been said around that Chelsy had her summer of fun but has lately been doing some legal work in South Africa, so you might not see her around London so much.

I think it's only the UK press aka the tabloids that that hate Chelsy.

I think Harry is single or may just be in the early stages of a date. Today he declared he has not "plan of settle down now". "Business as usual". Hope it can cut short all the speculations.

From Niraj Tanna (and I saw other tweets as
well)

Niraj Tanna ‏@IkonPictures 2 h

Prince Harry tells @EwartRoyale he has no plans of settling down yet and business is as usual. So 2016 engagement? Wedding 2017?

How would he make plans to settle down with someone when he's not in a relationship? Maybe I'm missing something.

I think that Harry was most likely just quaffing any kinds of speculation that he's actually in a relationship right now (with his 2 exes and otherwise) and his life is full of things that he wants to be doing in both his private and royal roles.

Are we talking about the same Cressida that was seen enjoying a relationship with another young man?

As I said before, Chelsy and Cressida will be the only two ladies everyone will be able to think about in terms of Harry's future bride until he's actually seen (publically) in a new relationship. I think it would be a good thing when that comes along because the whole conversation has gone stale. Harry has been far too busy to even strike up a relationship.

He is right, he has only 31 years old and women throwing themselves at him from all sides, he has to enjoy life

If he is too busy for a relationship, then perhaps half of the world population could not strike up a relationship...

We don't actually know if there was a relationship between Cressida and Holcroft. They were seen together a couple of times in public, that's all. But if true, there are several reports that this 'relationship' is over and Cressida is single again.

Most of the world's population doesn't require security protocols and an escape plan to grab a cup of coffee with someone they met on a dating site.

Harry's means of meeting women are limited by his position (Can you imagine him trying to meet someone online?) and further limited by the restrictions on how the relationship needs to be handled.

Private house parties are about the only safe way for him to keep women out of the press... and I imagine it would be terrible for a woman to go on one date with him and then have the press camped out at their apartment for months after, speculating about a possible wedding.

Whatever he is doing, I think two factors will always (maybe) be so: he is not 'single' in the sense of no girlfriend of whatever seriousness is not around for him (there has to be a someone around imo), but we will never see any woman publicly and officially unless he is sure enough to feel she may be 'the one'.

Both his acknowledged relationships had a curve: Chelsy was a very public event, then Cressida was extremely discreet. Niether was a good experience for either woman, so now we will know nothing. There will be public duties, but nothing more tantalizing. Just an idea.

BTW, wasn't 'David' the one who had a very active social life in the 1920's and 30's but no hint of it escaped to the newspapers? Am I correct? Not even Mrs Simpson was known about, at least early on and in the UK. I know we live in a very different world and boundaries are not respected, but might it be possible that Harry has a very private life, being kept very separate from his public duties? Just a thought.

I have no doubt that there's a private life we don't know about when it comes to Harry. It doesn't even have to be anything drastic, just whatever he wants to keep out of the public eye. I think that more than likely, Harry learned from William how to keep romance as private as possible, especially if it's something serious. Right now, it appears to be 'business as usual'; he's doing his engagements, and keeps the public speculation about his romance alive by staying 'single' (whatever that means for him).

I'm going to disagree. We cannot know, of course, what Harry has 'learned' from who, but I'd say the bruising that Chelsy and Cressida underwent were the 'learning'. JMO. There'll be no more public girlfriends. That's over.

Only public when it's serious and she is going to be exposed to how things are...more or less what happened with Kate.

I was just looking through an old scrap album the other day of my niece's, who followed the first years of the Harry-Chelsy romance. In spite of Capetown newspapers posting items of 'a tall blonde' seen with Harry in Capetown clubs in April 2004 and Chelsy being seen in Argentina when Harry was there on his gap year, it was several months before the British tabs tumbled to the fact that there was something going on.

In fact Harry and Chelsy had met months earlier in the late autumn of 2003. So it is possible for a royal to fly under the radar with romances, though of course it's a lot better if the girlfriend is in a foreign country! Harry is a lot wiser now than he was in 2003/04.

I think that Harry gave a very vague but also spot on answer.


http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/ar...0on%20Facebook



1) He was there for a very important cause and he certainlywanted the focus to remain on that, not on his private life. 2) He may be a bit fed up with the press bouncing back and forth from Chelsy and Cressida in theri articles. Maybe he wanted to avoid those rumors and deny any rekindled romance in a polite way. 3) Maybe he has a very early interest in someone new and or he could be just as single. Thus, he is a bit tired of hearing the word "marriage". If he is single marriage is very very far away. If he is seeing someone, he just want the press to know that dating someone doesn't mean jumping to wedding soon after.

Certainly he relates to women discreetly, of course he would not be alone all this time, but don't believe it's serious and I believe when he says he still does not think of marriage, I don't not know the attachment that people have by marriage, it seems that we live in the eighteenth century. He's only 31 years old, for crying out loud !!!

Prince Harry is enjoying the single life too much to marry on veteran trek | Daily Mail Online

Prince Harry said exactly the right thing. He didn't want to distract attention from the cause he was supporting. Ofcourse he wouldn't have said anything about his love life.
He hasn't denied anything either, like you see now in the headlines (Prince Harry Not Ready to Settle Down). He just said there are a lot of things to be done before settling down. If he is in a rekindled relationship with Cressida or in a relationship with someone we don't know yet, he will come out with it when they are ready and they are sure of eachother. For all we know there has been something going on in secret between Harry and a lady and they could become engaged in the near future. I for one believe there is something going on in his lovelife and we will know in time. I don't see him wait with marriage until he is in his late thirties. I base that on the fact that he has said in public he would like to settle down and find someone to share the pressure. I don't think he would have said that if he plans to wait until he is 38,39. He knew this statement earlier this year would unleash all kinds of speculation in the press and would increase pressure on and interest in his lovelife.
