IMO, I do not think it is possible to love one brother more then the other, both are the children of Diana and Charles, one is heir to a throne and one is not yet both seem very close to each other and have each other's backs so to speak.

Yes Harry did some very foolish things as a teenager and young adult, so please tell me who in this world at that age does not rebel and act out foolishly, I sure did and I bet everyone here and elsewhere did, it is called IMO growing up and that Harry has done with flying colors. He has grown into a hard working, bright, intelligent, committed member of his family. And now hopefully he will have a wonderful woman at his side and that family he so desires....as his brother has done.

We all can be excused for those foolish mistakes as a young adult as long as those foolish mistakes hurt no one other then themselves, more like embarrassed themselves by those mistakes for all the world to see.
Another reason for Harry's past bad behavior was the problems he had in dealing with his mother's death, which he got help for and which helped lead to the successful mental health initiative. I think the recent controversial interview he gave will soon be water under the bridge as he continues to be the very hard working member of his family that he is.

Some of those opinions you may agree with and some you may not. Whatever your stance, please remember that personal attacks against your fellow members are against the forum rules.

Anyone see the pics of Harry chatting with a blonde at the Killers concert? I'd like to know her name if anyone has the information

I don't know how to post links from my IPad but you can see them on social media.

You mean Alexandria Jackson, who has been dating Tom Van Straubenzee (Charlotte's godfather) for some time. Tom was also at the concert and had his arm around his girlfriend at one point, when Harry and his mates were talking. She's an American film producer.

No, there are pictures with a different blonde. Much longer hair and no hat.

No idea who she is.

I believe the Suits cast and crew go into recess for almost all of August don't they, and resume filming in September? So Meghan should be coming over to England for quite a long stay. Maybe a proposal is on the cards for late August!

That quote is probably made up. Of course, if Meghan actually felt that way, she couldn't marry Harry.

I don't believe she said this. Having said that not all relationships end in marriage children etc. She might be happy to just continue as they are. We really have no clue what's ahead as much as we would love to know

Where are these photos? I can't find any picture from 2017 with any blonde but Katie. May be easier to identify woman if we knew what you were referencing

I've seen the pics & I don’t think there is anything seedy about Harry talking to someone of the opposite sex at a concert, that is what people do at concerts! No doubt the Meghan haters will jump on these latest pics as evidence that the couple have broken up! The media will also enjoy making insinuations because that is what they love doing!

Harry just like William on the boys skiing trip, does however need to be careful about optics. When you go to an open concert he must know there will be cameras all around & he has said so himself that any woman he is seen talking with the media will automatically jump on it & make it into something it isn’t. He has been in the business long enough to know how the media operates & he doesn’t want to put himself or Meghan in a position where they are left to defend their relationship against more malicious gossip. Meghan has done very well to be incognito & I can’t even remember the last time we saw her at a social gathering having fun with her friends. Harry needs to work harder at doing the same. This is not suggesting that they live like hermits while in a long distance relationship, but they need to be more aware of their surroundings & not provide an open goal for the media & trolls alike.

I think she's probably a friend of one of the mates he was at the concert with. He and they were probably in a closed off area and his RPOs would hardly have allowed some random female Harry didn't know to come along and sit down next to him.

The blonde girl with the hat is Tom Straubenzee's girlfriend, but some of the media made a huge mystery of her identity for days.

We have reached the point where if he makes eye contact with any female in an observed social setting there will be speculation. Ridiculous, of course.

As to the statement that Meghan may have made regarding being a "princess", I think its very possible that it could have been taken out of context.

Just going by what I know of Meghan that's been in the public domain, my first thought was that she was alluding to having a role where the involvement is very impersonal and empty and not involved. Like being a "known figure" recognizable by the masses that is just seen cutting a ribbon or pointing to a plaque and smiling. Meghan seems to be the type, like Harry, in that if she's involved with something, she's wanting to be more involved than just a name on a figurehead or showing up for a photo op.

So my opinion is that she was stating she doesn't want empty roles that have no meaning. She proves her mettle when she not only gets up in front of the UN and makes a speech but actively goes among the people and knows the situation and experiences it before getting up in front of the UN to speak about something.

Harry basically is the same way. He'll stand up and support a cause like Walking with the Wounded but he also gets involved with them as we've seen with his treks to the north and south poles. Same with the Invictus Games. Same with Sentebale.

In this respect, these two people are very much alike.

There are pictures of him here with a Paralympian (blonde) could it perhaps be these - I know that the article is one that is being ignored but the description fits (although probably not at the Killers concert)?

They're pictures available from the russian image agency ????????????? ??????-?????. ?????????? ??? ??????? ? ?????? / Legion-Media Photo Agency. Stock and press photos

If you search for "prince harry" there, you'll find a whole bunch of pictures that probably took place in about 10 minutes, starting on the second page.

ETA: To be clear, I think this is a whole lot of nothing. As Osipi points out, he's a hugely charismatic people person. Also, the idea that a 30something man is suspect for talking to a woman who's not his girlfriend is deeply offensive to me. I've also seen identifications for the lady, but I haven't seen them confirmed anywhere and think it'd be irresponsible to make the claim.

If anyone really follows Harry and watches him in action no matter where he is, they quickly come to realize that no matter who Harry meets whether it be a little kid, an old war widow or a stunning blond, Harry has the unique ability that makes those he meets feel like their Harry's new best friend. Its just the way Harry is with people. I've known quite a few people that have had this ability and its something amazing to watch.

Meghan, with being close to Harry and knowing him intimately, probably admires this quality about the man. The media, however, doesn't have a clue and in their line of work, they are actively looking for the negatives to put a bit of sensation into their words to up the purchase appeal to the "sheeple" masses that live and thrive on these negatives.

One must remember that the media is kinda fed up with not having any new pictures of the couple too. They're getting tired on knowing the couple is together, but not being able to spot them and include pictures with their articles.

Privacy is paramount, twisting stories are dangerous and wrong, but I do understand the need for pictures.

They will twist stories and makes up bs no matter what. It is what it is, and imo there's no point trying to please the tabloid press by providing them pictures. IMHO giving them money shots also mixes the relationship a bit. Once you open the door to your private live, specifically to a relationship, you just can't close it again. Just look at George Clooney. His comments he made years ago about not wanting to get married again, because he wasn't good at it are still held against him decades later, after he got engaged and married. If Meghan and Harry were to be more open about their relationship, it'd be so hard to demand privacy other times. The entitled, bratty press will try to stir the pot, and they won't stop no matter what.

They twist so many stories and prey on her family, if I where them I would pretend to break up and just keep it all underground. I remember JFK jr did a similar ruse before he got married.
