I'm not sure why, but I suddenly got the urge to dig up pictures of young ladies who have at some point been linked with William or Harry. (Just as friends or whatever)

I thought that they already broke up because she was kissing another boy.

Things seem pretty serious with wills and kate do you think that this is going to be a match for sure or just good friends?

gaggleofcrazypeople 03-09-2005 06:38 PM

Well, they do seem to really get along. And she does seem accepted by the royal family.

Josefine 09-25-2005 11:52 AM

now its official i think becouse he talked about her in the lastest interview

polop 09-26-2005 09:21 PM

Just a thought, but you would think, that with all the money these men have they could find better looking women.By far, I must say, I liked Laura the best. Her personality seems more "real" than others.;)

I gotta support Laura, no matter what she looks like or what she does.

And wouldn't it be ironic to have another Katherine Howard in the royal family?

Polop are you a woman? Because this comment is really misogynistic IMO.

Harry's polo shirt 09-27-2005 09:40 AM

I just read some old article about Laura Gerard Leigh (rumored to be Harry's first public girlfriend) I think I liked her. She was cute.

I think one of Wills rumored girlfriends Lady Isabella Hervey was pretty, I don't know anything about her though. I was hoping Will and Lauren Bush would get together though.

I can remember reading somewhere that although there was speculation about William and Holly, they had never met before!

Some more additions to the thread would be:
William:
- Emma Parker-Bowles
- Jecca Craig
- Tara Palmer-Tomkinson (although I don't believe her claims)
- Britney Spears (although I don't believe her claims either)
- Natalie Hicks-Lobbecke,

Harry:
- Emma Lippiat

I don't believe anything Tara Palmer Tomkinson says! The Britney thing ended when it went public...It was in the news before Britney commented about it.

But how many of these people are they still friends with?

stephany mai 12-21-2005 08:21 PM

i remember william visiting nz with one of his friend during the lions tour back in july. there was quite an excitment when william visited auckland...

Princejohnny25 12-21-2005 09:57 PM

I know that they are good friends with the Van Cutsems and the Parker Bowles. I have always been fascinated by their relationship with those two families. They are two very aristocratic catholic familys. I would think most of their friends would be protestent. If he falls for a catholic girl there might be trouble. But then again, if the windsors didnt cause scandal and drama then they wouldt be the windsors.

I'll bet he's still friends with most of them, even if he rarely sees them or talks to them. Most of those people have hectic lives of their own, not to mention William's busy life. So just because they don't chat everyday or even every week anymore, this does not mean they aren't friends. I have a feeling William and Harry are still quite good friends with "the big ones" (Ben Elliot, Tom and Laura PB, the VC brothers, probably the ?Straubenzee? guys too.)

On the other hand, William and Harry don't seem to be friends with James Tollemache anymore. But maybe that has to do with the fact that JT is dating Will's ex?? I just love JT. He's my favorite of their "friends".

Warren 12-22-2005 03:09 AM

Most of their social contacts would be via private house parties, and the tighter (or more discreet) the social circle, the less we will ever know. Chances are the friendships established early will be the friendships for life. Loyalty and discretion would be highly valued.

Wow, you seem to know a lot about their friends. I hardly ever have any idea who they are photographed with. Why is James Tollemache your favourite? Do you have a picture of him?
I'm sure that as royalty, discree and loyal friends are very important to you, as there is so many people that will try to befriend you for different reasons. Although I don't know much about William and Harrys friends, I think most of their friends are anonymous and people we don't know anything about, while some very few are "famous" friends.
Do William and Harry have a lot of friends, are they popular?
Thanks. Ava

Connection: Son of Simon and Claire Tomlinson who run Beaufort Polo Club where Princes William and Harry play. Went to Klosters in March 2000 with the princes.

kaydura0717 12-27-2005 11:20 AM

I think most of their friends probably want to remain anonymous because the media would be asking questions about the princes.

The best friend of Britain's Prince Harry has been questioned by police after breaking into a girls' school "looking for girls".

whos he dating? Imean, which one of William's exes?

Wasn't there something between William and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthrope? I thought they dated for like a second or two.

caterpillarandcat 04-20-2007 08:30 PM

They all look financial and intel based with loose ties, no strings, also looks like they can all take or leave each other. The words bordum and burdens comes to mind. The two Princlings only have each other, and their family. Sad....

JT is dating Arabella Musgrave(sp?Musgrove?). I guess they are really more than "dating" since they are together still after about three years now.
I wouldn't be surprised if they actually got married or something without my notice. They are definitely discreet, that's for sure, not like the VCs, not at all. :rolleyes:
JT's older bro, the heir to the family barony, what's his name? Edward I think. Well, whatever his name is, he was married recently. Was it last fall?

Guy Pelly and JMW must be nuts. I mean, they are good looking guys, and they are so wealthy and seem like fun. So how can guys like that think it's necessary to go busting into a girls' school to find girls?! You would think guys like them would have to fight off all kinds of girls all the time.
Hmm.... Good looking? Wealthy? Nice job, nice fashion sense.... Friend of royalty? Geezz.... hmm.... what could the attraction be?
:lol:
I guess when you are like Pelly and Wells, it's not so much a question of how many girls, but more a question of quality?

HRH Kimetha 04-30-2007 05:01 PM

:previous:
Perhaps their wealth was their undoing. Too much money can make many people feel they are untouchable when it comes to breaking the law or paying their bills. The money also makes them irresponsibily drink to where they can't stand. The whole gang of them, including their royal friends seem to me to be irresponsible and a " aristocratic gang" of hoodlums.

Iluvbertie 04-30-2007 05:26 PM

:previous:
A perfect description - and it has ever been thus, unfortunately.
These young men need a purpose in their lives besides being rich.
The princes are, at least, trying by doing military service.

In times past that was the normal course of events for the sons of the aristocracy - school, university (for some) and then the military (or the church) before taking over the family estates and entering parliament to run the country. But now the last part of the life-cycle of the rich has been taken over by the people in general and unfortunately other aspects of that cycle seem to have gone by the wayside as well. Perhaps some form of compulsory national service (not necessarily military) should be instituted for the scions of the aristocracy to give their lives purpose at the all important age these young men have reached.

HRH Kimetha 04-30-2007 11:04 PM

:previous:
So true with some of your comments. After serviing in the military, I felt that there should be some sort of "compulsory national service", as you describe, would be fitting for all who once they reached a certain age. Not to mix this discussion with religion, but in my religion, it is expected of the young men and now young women to go on a mission for two years. In that time, when they are between high school and college, their lives are busy with something that for part of the population worthwhile, while the rest of population believes it is an occult. But, the majority of those young people come and settle into successful lives being responsible adults, wives, husbands, mothers and fathers. But, I am in no way recommending or supporting a nationwide missionary program. Perhaps some sort of conservation or ecological program.:smile:

It was nice to see Catherine with James Meade, I guess she and Prince William are still mutual friends with many people. There are a couple of photos somewhere of Catherine (or Kate) with Henry Ropner, a man who is supposed to be friends with William also. It's interesting that there are quite a few stories going around that William and Kate will be attending a wedding together, and also that they are supposed to take a vacation together in August. I think that's very interesting, if it's true.

CasiraghiTrio 06-02-2007 06:28 PM

Henry Ropner supposedly dated Jecca, right?

TonyaR 06-05-2007 02:06 AM

I believe he did date Jecca, and William phoned him to apologize after stories about William and Jecca supposedly appeared in the press. Prince William is said to have phoned and explained to Henry Ropner that the press stories were false, and that William wasn't poaching on his territory. :smile:

It's nice that William's friends would spend time with Kate and be willing to look out for her.

lyndaW 06-08-2007 04:04 PM

Holly Branson is also a member of the group. She is going to school to become a Doctor, she is fab wealthy, good looking, great manners, very close-knit ultra-wealthy family, and very mature, and has been a friend of Prince William for a long time....how does Princess Doctor Holly or Doctor Princess Holly sound? Prince Harry and Chelsy are still an item...as time goes on I like her more and more, she graduated from University with good grades with some very tough subjects, and has applied to Bristol University for graduate school, she seems to like P. Harry for himself and couldn't care less about the media-circus...good for both above ladies.

Very good point LyndaW, although the two lovebirds are still very young, I agree that her educational background and how she carries forth with her life, (ie school, charity, plans for grad school, etc) are a stellar example for young girls today. She shows that she carries on with her life irregardless of what Harry is doing. She makes time for him, but she doesn't give up her own dreams. I know many say her family has so many isses, etc, but that is not her fault. IMO she is a beautiful young girl, she has her fun (as we've seen on many photos, but she is so young and just doing what young people do) but most importantly she sets a good example with her education and pursuit of her own dreams. When the newspapers report of her graduating with good grades and is planning on entering graduate school, it is showing the importance of education. Especially in her home country of South Africa where the only hope for young girls is an education.

But they are so young and usually first loves as great as they are don't always last. But look at Charles and Camilla, so I can only hope. :flowers:

CasiraghiTrio 07-15-2007 11:34 AM

Does anyone know if any of William's or Harry's friends are serving with them in the army? I am wondering if some of the old 'Highgrove set' are with them in the Blues and Royals, like the Meades, or Straubenzee? Maybe William van Cutsem?

CasiraghiTrio 10-15-2007 07:17 PM

Luv2cruise, about Guy Pelly, I have indeed heard that he seems quite serious about Susanna (?) Warren, who interestingly enough happens to be daughter of The Queen's current racing manager (John Warren), and granddaughter of The Queen's previous racing mgr (the Earl of Caernarvon, whose daughter is married to Warren).
Anyway, those pics in my last post here are mostly from The Sun online and from Rex Features.

But I come with another treat, this time gossip, not pics.
Richard Kay's column (15 October 2007) contains a couple of pointless (but well....:biggrin:) anecdotes about Jacobi AGC and Kate Middleton. The one about Kate is from her prep school years, a play she did, and her costar, now 25, says how it delights him that he was her "first prince". Whatever. :rolleyes:
About Jacobi, it says he went to Ludgrove with William (which I didn't know) and he was dating for a year a friend of Chelsy, but now has broken up with her.

Well, there you have it: More stuff we didn't need to know, but all the same, I do wish Kay would have put some pics of Jacobi on the column, because Jacobi is a cutie.... :wub: But lucky for us, there are pics (and info) of him, and sister Isabella, here: https://rdujour.com/category/jacobi-a...ugh-calthorpe/ (a very juicy socialite site)

zembla 12-01-2007 03:38 PM

Anyone know the backstory on James Meade? I know Will has been friends with him for awhile but does he come from a titled family?...I've only seen like a few pics of him.

TonyaR 12-01-2007 08:16 PM

James Meade attended Eton with Prince William, so they've been friends for a long time. James is the son of Richard John Meade, OBE. Richard Meade is an expert equestrian and 3 time Olympic Gold Medalist in riding. He's actually won more Olympic honors than any other British rider, and he is also a former boyfriend of Princess Anne's.

James Meade's mother is Angela Meade (Farquhar) and his maternal grandfather is Ian Farquhar, joint master of the Beaufort Hunt, which Prince Charles is still a member of. His great grandfather Farquhar was the 5th Baronet of something or other, and his father Richard's great grandfather was supposedly a relation of Richard James Meade, 4th Earl of Clanwilliam. I don't know what the connection is, but he is a distant relation to the current Earl of Clanwilliam.

James is 25 years old and I think he's the oldest. His younger brother Harry is also an equestrian, and I think he will be competing in the next upcoming Olympics. James also has a sister, Lucy Meade.

That's all I know. :lol:

CasiraghiTrio 02-23-2008 11:57 AM

^Thanks for the info. on the Meades. They seem like a nice, discreet, decent, hardworking family. :smile:

Guy Pelly
Born in 1982, or maybe 1983 but no later
Son of John and Vanda Pelly
Hometown: Shipton Moyne, Gloucestershire

Guy studied briefly at the Royal Agricultural College, Cirencester, but he dropped out age 19, early in 2002, in the wake of the 'Harry & cannabis' publicity.

Coincidentally, on the subject of the Meades, Guy dated Lucy Meade. They are apparently still good friends. He now dates Susanna Warren, whose parents are John & Lady Carolyn Herbert of the horse racing world.

Guy's mother Vanda (who lives in East Malling, Kent) often speaks on his behalf, in his defense, when the tabloids attack his personal life. She is disabled since having her right leg below the knee amputated in 2003. Her son gives her lifts in his VW, which was part of his unsuccessful argument in the Wiltshire courts in June 2007 to maintain his driving license after a speeding citation.

Guy's father owns a car firm in Sussex.

Guy works as marketing director for the Mahiki Club in Mayfair.

One of his most embarrassing publicity arose when he & James Murray Wells (on Christmas Eve 2005) raided the girls' Westonbirt School in Tetbury. Jamie broke his ankle in the event.

Guy does look like fun but he takes too much heat for the princes behavior sometimes. As if he influences it, I think they like his loyalty for sure.

CasiraghiTrio 02-23-2008 01:44 PM

Tom van Straubenzee
Tom, or Thomas, is the son of Alexander & Claire van Straubenzee of Kimpton, Hertfordshire.

Father Alexander was in the Army. Alexander & Claire had been on the guest list of the memorial service for Major Bruce Shand in September 2006. Alexander wrote an acclaimed piece for The Spectator, and reprinted in The Telegraph: The gate of Hell - Telegraph

Claire was formerly the organizer for the Royal British Legion's Poppy Appeal.

Brother Henry died in a car-tree collision in December 2002. At the time of the crash, Henry had been on his gap year and set to work as a volunteer at a school in Uganda. He never got the chance to begin the commission, so after his death, his parents established a memorial trust is his name, which to this day raises money for the school. Prince William & Prince Harry have participated in fundraising schemes (i.e. polo tournaments) for the trust.
Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund
DRINK-DRIVE CRASH KILLED PRINCE'S PAL - Get Wokingham
Henry had gained a place at Newcastle University, to study business management and also planned to train at Sandhurst Military Academy, like his father had done.

Tom & Henry, and another brother (Charlie) attended Ludgrove prep school with Princes William & Harry. The brothers attended Harrow School.

Tom accompanied Prince William in an official capacity on the prince's tour of New Zealand. If second to anyone, only to James Meade, he is nevertheless regarded as Prince William's oldest and most preferred sidekick. If the seating arrangements at the Concert for Diana are anything to judge by, he and Meade trump even the notorious Guy Pelly and the Tomlinsons in royal favour.

Tom is distant cousins with "City broker" William van Straubenzee, who was a lifelong friend of Diana, Princess of Wales. William's sister Philippa Whitaker hired Lady Diana Spencer as a nanny to her son Alexander.

Hello. I am doing my dissertation on wind power. From most of my reading so far, it is clear that there is much controversy surrounding this subject. Solutions have been recommended, one of which, is community wind farms.

Could anyone tell me if there are any community wind farms set up or being proposed around the Newcastle region?

Also, maybe some of you could give me your own opinions on this topic and state whether or not you see a future in this trajectory?

If you do not see a future, what do you think will be the next regime shift?

Harry and gal pal Nicola Sturgis
 
I don't know if Nicola was a girlfriend or just a friend. She always seemed to be in tow with his girlfriend 2003 Laura Gerard Leigh, though, at polo matches and rugby games.

The red-haired daughter of Toby Russell Sturgis and his wife Gail Virginia Cole was born in 1982, according to The Peerage website.
At the time of hanging out with Harry's crowd in 2003, she was a 20-year-old student of Cirencester Agricultural College.

Image Gallery - Click Here (pictures of her and Harry from Rex Features)
The third pic shows Nicola in the back seat of Harry's car, with Harry & Jamie Murray Wells in the front, and the girl with Nicola in the back was someone photographed on other occasions kissing Harry (around the same time frame). I get the feeling Nicola was just a friend. Well, anyway, the fourth picture in this gallery shows Nicola with Laura Gerard Leigh.

That is definitely not Arabella, her name is Maggie, but no last name because it's a privacy thing, isn't it?

agape_eternal 07-15-2008 04:56 AM

Can anyone give me info/pics on Simon?

LOL i'm trying to find someone with a rex features account who can get ahold of a list of pics with Simon in it, but no luck yet.

The girl next to Chelsy in this picture is, maybe, Shaun's girlfriend?
And the guy in the sort of lime colored shirt seems like the body of Tom van S, the head/hair of James Meade.... hmm :biggrin: Jom?

Has Shaun broken up with Anna Bernard? I don't think that's Anna... :ermm: It's a shame if they have broken up. I quite liked them as a couple...

Does anybody know, if Prince William is still friend with Nicholas Knatchbull? I read, they were close friends as they were kids and teens...

And what about his sister Alexandra Knatchbull? Is she still in the young royal circle???

Myself1995 08-19-2009 09:00 PM

This video is up on Natalie Imbruglia's website - the article claims it's "based on a raucous house party with Prince Harry and his friends" ( the one where he showed up in the doctor's mask )and that she "enlisted the help of other members of Harry’s clubbing crowd in the video. :ermm: Does anyone recognize anyone in the video as one of Harry's friends?

It was stated that Lord Frederic's wedding reception is being held at Annabel Goldsmith's estate and that the Kent's are friends with Annabel.
So I was wondering if William and Harry were friendly with Annabel or her kids since Princess Diana was known to be very close friends with her. Anyone know?

Lady Annabels youngest is two years older than William. :smile:
Ben Goldsmith the youngest is also married with 3 children, so I doubt he's out partying every night. :flowers:
So I don't think they are close friends, might have met at a party once. The Princes might know Jemima the eldest Goldsmith, through her friendship with Diana.

Alexandra is I think still studying in Washington. :smile:
I don't think William and Harry have seen Nicholas for a while, especially since the drugs incident. :tongue:

Sereta 09-08-2009 03:13 PM

I wouldn't mind Alexandra for William. She's gorgeous and looks very regal! I wonder what she's studying in Washington and when she'll be finished.

Thanks lumutqueen. I didn't see your reply on the previous page. I know Annabel was almost like a mother figure to Diana so I thought maybe she still kept in touch with the Princes occassionly but maybe not.

Opal 09-12-2009 01:33 AM

I don't know if Annabel keeps in touch with them or not, but her son Ben Goldsmith was just at Tom Parker Bowles' book launch recently so he obviously socializes with that crowd. So William might at least know Ben especially since they're close in age.

Alexandra graduated in 2008 actually but I'm under the impression that she doesn't run in the same circle as William anymore. You don't hear much about her...

If she study in US, she has another friends, maybe she doesn't spent much time in UK now or she's never been really good friends with princes.

Sereta 10-14-2009 07:35 PM

I don't know if this has been discussed before but are Princes William and Harry good friends with Camilla's children Tom Parker-Bowles and Laura Lopez?

Sereta 10-16-2009 04:48 PM

I read quite awhile ago that William became close to Tom Parker Bowles and they talked on the phone a lot. Don't know if it's true. Perhaps someone else might know more.

Being stepbrothers I imagine they have talked a bit. But seeing as Tom has a growing family and William is training I can't imagine they talk too much as this present time. :smile:

Sereta 10-17-2009 04:40 PM

I've noticed Laura Lopez seems to go to the same social events as William but I don't know if they socialize privately. I've heard Charles & Camilla get together with Camilla's family at Christmas time so maybe Harry & William see them during the holidays.

Marsel 10-17-2009 10:10 PM

The Telegraph article makes it sound like they've broken up for good. However, as far as I know, the wedding was just delayed till Jecca gets het degree. Jecca and Hugh are still very much together.

What is she going to school for (what's her degree), and where is she going to school? Also, when is she supposed to finish? Thanks.

Marsel 10-18-2009 03:33 PM

She studies for her postgraduate degree at University College London.
I believe her degree is in Art and History, although she did take courses of management (or was it marketing?) about a year ago.

Opal 10-18-2009 04:07 PM

Thanks Marsel. :flowers: Maybe she took those business courses to help her fiance' Hugh with his company.

BritishRoyals 10-20-2009 02:03 AM

Such a shame Jecca's engagement didn't push through. I have the impression that they might work it out, though. They seem like a level-headed couple. What surprises me is that Hugh and Jecca's dad actually spoke to the press.

Sereta 10-20-2009 07:38 PM

Yeah it's a shame. Hopefully they'll get back together.

Opal 10-25-2009 03:06 PM

If they've split up then I wish them both the best.

Sereta 10-25-2009 04:43 PM

In that article about Chelsy and pals going out it mentioned that Sam Branson arrived with Natalia Imbruglia (she seems to be spending a lot of time with this group lately) but isn't Sam still dating Isabella Calthorp (not sure of her full name)?

Sereta 10-27-2009 07:42 PM

:previous: Yeah, Sam and Isabella Calthorpe are still together as far as I know. Perhaps she couldn't attend that particular event. Imbruglia probably became friends with this group after they participated in her music video a while ago. She looks younger than her 34 years.

Sereta 10-30-2009 04:34 PM

Also Natalie I. was romantically linked with Harry over the summer. Don't know if it was true or not. Does anyone know who Holly Branson is dating. I've never heard of her being linked to anyone.

Dani90 10-30-2009 10:33 PM

Natalie I. was on the Australian television show Rove earlier this year and actually brought up the Harry issue saying that she had only met him once at her birthday party. And if I remember correctly, I also read somewhere (think it was Herald Sun) that Natalie knows Holly and Holly brought Harry with her to the b-party. She also said on Rove that if the video would be inspired by any party it would have been her b-day and not some party with Prince Harry as the media wrote

After using Google and searching I think this is her boyfriend. He's called Fred Andrews. But I'm far from sure because I saw it in another post so don't blame me if it's wrong ;)

Opal 10-31-2009 12:49 AM

I wonder if Natalie was just a cover-up for Harry getting back together with Chelsy so they could have privacy... or maybe the press just wanted to link Harry with a celebrity to sell papers. :smile:

Dani90 10-31-2009 01:09 AM

Rchat, isn't that how the tabloids work? I don't think it was anything between Natalie and Harry more than that their path crossed at one or two occasions
