Title: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: dmitri on September 01, 2007, 10:13:23 AM
I think Prince Henry/Prince Harry did a wonderful job at his late Mother's memorial service. I found it curious that he delivered the address and not his older brother Prince William.

I agree, Prince Harry did brilliantly.   It is reported that he searched everywhere for something which he felt would sum up his feelings, but failed to find anything he thought suitable.   He therefore decided to write something himself.   

He did the right thing - what made his short eulogy all the more powerful is that it so obviously came from his heart.

Yes I thought Prince Harry did a fantastic job with the speech it was very beautifully said. It did not sound boring at all it sound realy sweet and very caring message for their mother. It shows how much Harry realy loves his mother and misses her. I am certain that the message came from his heart. Becuase he did not use flash cards or memorize anything he just spoke out there without using nothing.

I thought he was more articulate during their brief speech at the concert earlier in the summer - perhaps he's just more comfortable with public speaking? Without making any actual judgments about sentiment, I think his speaking comes across as more genuine (less stilted?) and it was definitely an occasion where one wouldn't want to be criticized for performance or delivery.

Harry gets an ear-bashing: What happened when he forgot to pick Chelsy up from the airport

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/showbiz/showbiznews.html?in_article_id=480263&in_page_id=1773

As Chelsey "walked out of the arrivals gate at Terminal 1 there was no sign of her boyfriend. As photographers swarmed around her, she couldn't hide her thunderous expression and sought refuge in a nearby Costa Coffee bar where she punched Harry's number into her mobile phone. The apologetic prince insisted that he hadn't overslept but had been waiting at the wrong terminal and sent half a dozen uniformed police officers to protect her. Five minutes later she walked out of a side entrance - and into the arms of her boyfriend, who looked as if he had just got out of bed....Harry...put his arm protectively around his girlfriend's shoulders and remonstrated with the photographers. One onlooker said: "There was a lot of effing and blinding mostly, it has to be said, from Prince Harry. He was got quite red in the face. "Eventually he and Chelsy made it through the crowds to his car and the two sped off." "

I agree Grace his clothes look rinkled up and messy. Obviously, the iron the clothes did not matter I would think at least he has a servant to do the iron for him, I guess he was too busy rushing to get his girlfriend since she was angry that he did not pick her up from the airport on time. It was a real long flight from South Africa to United Kingdom 11 HOURS is so long I know it will be boring for me being on a plan she may have had a couple of flight stops before she cam to the United Kingdom.

Hmmm... I am not sure how I feel about this work of art. I wonder how Harry feels about it, did he comment on it? Something puzzling about it though. The article says that "the Prince's head is earless, in reference to reports that militia leaders said they planned to send him back to his grandmother 'without his ears'". But it is obvious that the bronze prince has his ears... What's that all about?

This is just garbage...those who 'wanted to serve in Iraq but were unable to' don't need any kind of 'memorial', let alone one of a dead prince who in reality is very much alive.

This proves that he doesn't learn from past mistakes, wouldn't you say?  The next thing, he and his brother will be whingeing about bad publicity or press harrassment again.  I've totally lost patience with the young royals.  They have their hand out for all the privileges their titles bring but in turn do nothing but discredit the monarchy with their behaviour and refusal to realize that they have the responsibilities of duty and to act with reasonable decorum which come with being royal.  There is simply no future for the monarchy after Charles (and that will be bad enough) as far as I'm concerned - none.

I don't know, why he has to do that. I can imagine that both princes want to live like normal young man, but this must not be, I think. One can have fun, without behaving like that. Or is it provocation? I don't know. I'm not too interested in the english royals, but it's a pity to see that.
One can only hope, it changes again, when he becomes older. But he's already 23 and was already in the military, and not a teenager anymore, who has to try out his limits or something. Strange.

I think Prince Harry and William have gone too far. Harry is drinking something that can kill hom. All there doing is harming their lives. That mess can toxicate your lungs and brains. Why are these people not taking this seriously it is not a game. That is a dangerous drug that can kill you. I think they are not going to take anything seriously. It realy is sad. Yes Harry can do better than this. His grandmother would not be happy about this or father.

ITN News (unsure if they originated the story) report that Chelsey Davy has ended their 3 year relationship, allegedly because PH chose to attend a match at the Rugby World Cup in Paris instead of her 22nd birthday celebrations. Clarence House won't comment (probably because they are too choked with joy and relief to find adequate words...)

They just want to start something the paparazzi. I think that this is true, but then again it sounds to me like a rumour. Thanks for the link Kimberly. She may want to break up becuase she fills that she does not want her identity to be just as Harry's girlfriend but just her own identity. I think that thats a rumour that may not be true it is just paparazzi drama.  I realy don't think that is true.

I think they genuinely loved each other but I could never see how she could've fit into the royal mold that would've been necessary to sustain a marriage. They had a good run together though--3 or 4 years?

They always were away else where. They did not realy stay in one play together to have such a relationship. So if think it is normal for them to break up. They claimed that they loved each other but I don't think as much as to be married just as friends. I don't see a marriage there.

Well, the story has been sufficient credence to be reported by the local news on TV in Yorkshire this morning...........

The lovely Chelsey is of course a student at Leeds University, hence the local interest but has been rumoured to have found the going tough here in the wilds of Yorkshire.  I can understand this, as I have often felt the pressure of trying to spend 3 grand in one of our local hostelries in one sitting, as there is after all only so much ale one can physically consume before exploding!!!!!

Seriously, this girl needs to wake up and realise that her relationship with Harry has and will be her biggest claim to fame in life.  Such a lot of nonsense!

I find all of this hard to believe as reported by the USA & UK tabloids.  This story has more holes than a pound of extra expensive Swiss cheese.

First Issue – I have never heard of ones mother’s coming to stay with you at university to settle you in especially if you are a world traveler and member of the PYT jet set.

Second Issue – Why would anyone’s mother need to come settle them in one is attending university to do graduate work?

Third Issue – I have never been to Leeds or Yorkshire, however, I cannot imagine the second largest city/metropolitan area in the UK is in any way “backwater” country.

Fourth Issue – If Chelsey Davy wanted to be close to Harry and/or London, why did she not attend the University of London instead of the University of Yorkshire?  I am sure her father has enough money to but her way into any university she wishes to attend.

I am totally done with the Tabloids!  I can dream up more plausible stories than what they currently print.  All good lies and tabloid fabrications have an element of truth, but this story is so implausible to anyone with any common sense that I am offended!  LOL!  LOL!

If so, I wonder that she actually finds the time to do any work in between the endless to-ing and fro-ing to London, and her hectic socail life........

I'm quite sure that she does think Leeds is a backwater (and its not the second largest city Tampa....) and perhaps when one considers her rather sophisticated requirements for life, this comes as no surprise.  She must be so unhappy, poor wee mite.........(wish we had those smileys now....!)

Leeds in a large, northern city (certainly not the second largest in the England) that would be either Birmingham or Manchester but all English cities are backwaters when compared to London which is a huge metropolis.   I don't doubt this girl found it a backwater when compared with London.  It has a large student population and a vibrant night life.  I know a number of students at Leeds (children of friends) and they love it there.  However, Oxford or Cambridge it ain't.

From our good old reliable friends at Wikipedia:

Leeds is a city in West Yorkshire, England. It is located on the River Aire and is the urban core of the City of Leeds metropolitan district.
It is the third most populous city in England. According to the 2001 UK census the Leeds Urban Area had a population of 457,247 while the metropolitan district, City of Leeds had a population of 747,939 and is one of England's core cities.


Birmingham is a city and metropolitan borough in the West Midlands, England. Birmingham is the largest of England's core cities, and is often considered to be the second city of the United Kingdom.[1] The City of Birmingham has a population of 1,006,500 (2006 estimate).[2] It forms part of the larger West Midlands conurbation, which has a population of 2,284,093 (2001 census)[3] and includes several neighbouring towns and cities, such as Solihull, Wolverhampton and the towns of the Black Country.

Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: ChristineM on November 13, 2007, 05:00:31 AM
I think England is probably the same - I write in that caveat because Scottish and English education systems have always been separate and different.

In Scotland in order to read a post graduate degree in law, the student requires a previous honours degree.   It is a very onerous course - squeezing four years into two.   I know.   My son is half way through his second year.   The degree of difficulty and volume of material to absorb is eye watering.   He already has a very good first degree.

Chelsy Davey must be another intelligent young lady, the introduction of whose genes would not have gone amiss in the Windsor family.   Although, how she manages to fit in all the partying and drinking along with a post graduate degree in law, I do not know.   Perhaps that is another reason why she felt she could no longer cope with Prince Harry.   She is intelligent, and the requirements of her course (thousands of miles from home) are too rigorous.   Hedonistic Harry might find these facts and her needs too difficult to handle.

Here's what put the smile on her face (a bit mean but hard to blame her really):

"In a moment of what some might think to be divine retribution, one hapless snapper tumbled over in front of her as she walked to the college campus from her dingy student lodgings shortly before 10am yesterday. It would have taken a heart of stone not to laugh - and Chelsy did not disappoint. Walking past the man - who suffered a nasty injury to his knee as well as his pride (not to mention a broken camera lens) - she burst into an uncontained fit of giggles. "

Another article added that "Chelsy has also had to run the gauntlet of the paparazzi more than ever, something she hates. A member of her circle reports that when asked recently about what kind of law she was going to study, she retorted: "Privacy". "She and Harry row about the photographers more than anything," reveals the friend. "

Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: grandduchessella on November 14, 2007, 01:53:47 PM
The Daily Mail also did a comparison of Kate & Chelsea--a bit unfair to Kate, in my opinion, but made some good points:

"One is a tall, leggy brunette with a reputation for being (dare one say it) rather dull, the other a curvaceous beach-bleached blonde who likes nothing more than to party until dawn. But the differences between on-off girlfriends Kate Middleton and Chelsy Davy do not end there. For while it is middle-class Kate who has come to love the trappings that her royal romance brings her, it is bubbly Chelsy who, surprisingly, has crumbled under the weight of public scrutiny. On the surface it is a surprising reaction from a girl who posed for her own modelling portfolio at the age of 17, confiding in the photographer that she "just wanted to be famous". But as Chelsy has learned to her cost, sometimes you really do have to be careful what you wish for - and from the moment that news of her relationship with Harry broke, she has struggled to come to terms with her loss of privacy. Despite complaining about press attention, Kate is a regular face at royal haunts such as Boujis and Mahiki, with an ever-present smile for the paparazzi. Chelsy, on the other hand, is always ready with a scowl. Kate is also not averse to using her relationship with William to her advantage - securing herself a cut-price Audi, similar to that of her boyfriend, at a specially negotiated price given only to royalty or celebrities. On her arrival in England Chelsy chose to buy a small VW Polo. And unlike Kate, who made such a stir when she arrived at Sandhurst for William's passing-out parade, Chelsy chose not to attend Harry's graduation as she feared it would detract from his achievement. "

Post by: Martyn on November 15, 2007, 05:35:05 AM
Dating a prince of the House of Windsor is not designed to come with privacy as part of the bargain, so if she ever thought that luxury would be afforded to her, then it is a miracle that she ever got to University at all.

I rather doubt that she lives in 'dingy student lodgings'; many students in Leeds are property owners, most have cars and a surprising degree of affluence, which makes a stark contrast to my remembrances of being a student, when everyone that I knew was utterly skint and we all had jobs to pay our way through Uni.  Chelsey's family, as we know, are not short of a bob or two and there are some pretty ritzy flats to rent/buy in Leeds, many aimed at the student market.........

Comparing her with Kate is unfortunate but inevitable, and Chelsey does not come out the winner.  IMO, Kate just has so much more poise and class and seems to deal with all the attention, most of it unwanted I am sure, with an ease that must cost her some effort.

I think that Harry could do with someone with a bit more class and less of a part lifestyle............

Yup - almost to the consistency of Harry's skull. Crivvens, can it get more tacky? Oh yes, I'm sure. Harry's parents had their moments but their substantial redeening qualities which ultimately prevailed. Harry's brother is on a wobbley surface himself but appears to usually bring a tad more common sense and duty to his overall efforts. Harry alas is the unfortunate embodiment of why royalty's weakness for celebrity and all its trappings is a sure-fire disaster - outdoing the Beatrice-come-lately with ease.                                                                                 Someone please please tell these kids, in no uncertain terms: Stop going to these bloody nightclubs and upper-class-twit excuses for fund-raising rackets; don't complain about the paparazzi when you do provide them with your well-trodden path of predictable jollies; at the same time do evaluate your friends and acquaintances and hangers-on now that you no longer stagger en masse about these infernal entertainments. Get rid of the Entitlement banner you appear to wave morning, noon and bloody night; read some books - especially those which give you a sound understanding of what your ancestors did and what it means. You never know, you may have something to contribute there too one day. Find a charity/cause which really means something to you beyond an image-repair phtot-op with cute grateful little native kids. You make me sick when you do these appallingly superficial stunts. William and the VSO thing is a good start - if you can convince yourself you are truly in it for the people and their quality of life and not becuase it offers the chance to fit lots of skiing in too.

Perfectly put, Tdora1.

Royal sycophants are still rolling these young royals along, giving them the false idea that an occasional smile into a camera or haphazard attendance at some event to aid 'charity' regardless of how dubious, is all they need to accomplish to please the masses, outside of their personal goings on, much of which is spread all over the newspapers.  They are mistaken but, sadly, the cost will not be just to them personally but to the monarchy which their grandmother and grandfather (and many others) have worked hard at their whole lives for the image of dedication to duty and respect it must maintain to function into the future.  Very sad.

Chelsey and the Intelligence Service - oh please.  Whatever next?!

There has been a bit of stuff over the weekend about Chelsey getting on with life in Leeds, whilst Harry continues to phone her and bombard her with text messages, to which she is seemingly immune.

There was a photo of her at a 'tea party' in some student digs that didn't look that glamorous (not hers though I am sure....), at which supermarket bought vodka was being consumed, in the form of simple cocktails.  This was somehow presented to us as a virtue, in contrast to the elaborate and expensive cocktails that she habitually consumes when in London - can't quite grasp the logic of that.........

It is also reported that Kate Middleton has been very supportive to her at this time, as both Harry and Chelsey extended her this kindness to her when she split from William.  It was also alleged that Harry declined to visit her in Leeds, and that when he did, and she cooked him a meal of typical student fare (spaghetti bolognese), he was critical and that they argued about the meal.  It would appear that this Prince's expensive tastes in food and drink can not be compromised, so perhaps it is as well that he did not get to go to Iraq (after all the conditions might just have been a bit too challenging for his personal chef anyway......)

I still don't buy the notion that Chelsey is a simple student in Leeds.  I rather feel that these two pampered and privileged airheads somehow deserve each other and that is they do get back together, at least they won't be spoiling another couple.............

She will apparently be introduced to the Queen at Peter Phillips's wedding and, according to the Daily Mail, there is some 'rebranding' of her going on. According to the paper, she's trying to present a more 'Kate Middleton' image as she's sick of being seen as the 'Fergie' to Kate's 'Diana'.

I've always found that interesting because she looks more like Diana, and in personality, seens to be like Diana's less serious side. Kate Middleton is more serious. I have always found Chelsy to be a little like Diana in some ways.

I think what I mean is Chelsea Davy has got to be the most beautiful woman dated or married by a member of the British Royal family in a long time. I hope she someday becomes a member of the Royal Family, although that's a longshot as of now. Diana of course was the kind of beauty and icon who comes only once in a very brief while. Both Prince William and Prince Harry have had steady girlfriends for a number of years- unlike when Prince Charles was a bachelor- he dated many women, although as we now know, his heart was really with Camilla.

Personally, I suspect the breakup is a tactical move designed to let them both focus on their careers and importantly, for the general public to remember this mature move in a few years time.  I think its a good idea.  They both need to prove to themselves as much as to everyone else that there is more substance to them other than the youthful high jinks they are known for.  It also (possibly) puts off any criminal thinking to make a gain out of kidnapping the girlfriend of "the Spare" (after William, of course).

Post by: mjl1786 on June 12, 2010, 04:46:12 PM
This might have been brought up in a previous discussion, so forgive me if it has...

I was thinking today, if Prince Harry were to marry and have children while Elizabeth II is still alive, what would his children's styles be?

If my memory serves me correctly, Queen Victoria issued letters patent granting the style of Royal Highness to the children of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales. And I know that in 1917, George V issued letters patent only granting the style Royal Highness to male-line grandchildren of a monarch, but not great-grandchildren.

Obviously, if Harry were to have children after Charles came to the throne, they would bear the style of Royal Highness from birth since they would be male-line grandchildren of the reigning sovereign.

But if Prince Harry were to have children while his grandmother was still the reigning monarch, would his children bear the style of Royal Highness, or not? Because that would make them great-grandchildren of the reigning monarch, but they wouldn't be descended from the eldest son of the Prince of Wales.

If anyone can shed light on this just to satisfy my curiosity that would be appreciated.

If born during the lifetime of Elizabeth II. children of both prince William and prince Henry wopuld bo Lord/Lady Windsor. Only when Charles succeedes the would become HRH Prince/Princess. This according to the Letters patent from 1917. Only the oldest son of Prince William would be HRH prince if born during the lifetime of Elizabeth II.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Constantinople on June 14, 2010, 01:34:51 AM
Well subsequent to Letters Patent 1917, there modifications to the rules made in Letters Patent 1936, 1948 and 1961 where the rules changed in terms of what the Sovereign at the time wanted.  So it is pretty well up to the sovereign at the time.  I am pretty sure that if Prince Harry married and had children, considering his proximity to the throne, I don't think that Queen Elizabeth would refrain from changing the Letters patent to include his children as HRH instead of HH.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: mjl1786 on June 14, 2010, 02:11:07 AM
True, it is ultimately up to the monarch who receives the style of Royal Highness, so I imagine she would grant Harry's children that honor.

Of course none of us know if The Queen would issue special Letters Patent and bestow an early grant of HRH on Harry's children.  However, if she takes no action, they would NOT be HH, because under the 1917 Letters Patent, HH is no longer used for anybody in Britain.  Instead they would be Lord X Windsor / Lady Y Windsor.  Of course, if Harry were granted a dukedom upon marriage, an eldest son would bear his subsidiary title by courtesy.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: mcdnab on June 14, 2010, 11:56:18 AM
Under the 1917 Letters patent - only the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales is entitled to the HRH, Prince of Great Britain etc. The other male line great grandchildren of a reigning sovereign would be styled Lord/Lady ..... Windsor (or Mountbatten-Windsor as descendants of the Queen with no Royal Style).
However if William and Harry's children are borne during the reign of their grandfather - they would as male line grandchildren of a sovereign be entitled to the HRH.
I suspect that on William's marriage and possibly on Harry's if it happens during the Queen's lifetime she will issue patents stating that their children will be HRH to avoid numerous changes of style during their lifetime.

He seems to have a feisty and mischievious personality - but most of all he seems to have oomph and nerve. I can respect that. It doesn't appear to me there is any evil intent behind what he does at times, just youthful vim and vinegar like a lot of kids. (yes, I'm old. LOL) He seems to step up when he needs to.

The Queen has promised Prince Harry she’ll make him Duke of Sussex – but only if he gets married.

Palace officials say the 85-year-old monarch wants her grandson’s future sorted before she is too frail.

A highly-placed source said: “She had originally planned to confer the title on her son Edward but in the end he was created Earl of Wessex.

“Harry is aware of the plan and is perfectly happy – after all, Sussex is home to Cowdray Park, the ­cathedral of his favourite sport polo. But he won’t get the title till he weds, which may be some time given the free spirit he is.”

Big brother Wills was made Duke of Cambridge when he ­married Kate Middleton in April. We had exclusively revealed four years ­earlier he would get that title.

Harry, 26, currently dates model Florence Brudenell-Bruce, 25.

The last Duke of Sussex was Prince Frederick, sixth son of George III, who died in 1843.

From the Daily Mail:

Prince Harry raced to the aid of a childhood friend after he heard him being mugged as they talked on the phone. He jumped in his Audi and circled the streets of Battersea, South London, with his royal protection officer looking for Thomas van Straubenzee after his BlackBerry was stolen. Unable to locate him, Harry went to the nearest police station where he found Mr van Straubenzee, 28, unharmed and reporting the crime. Harry, 27, gave a witness statement and then drove Mr van Straubenzee home. Police said a man had been arrested and bailed in connection with the robbery, which happened in November.

From a blog site in Dec:

"Britain's Prince Harry has killed his first Taliban commander.

The 28-year-old royal - who is currently serving on the frontline in Afghanistan and is nicknamed Big H by his comrades - unleashed a devastating 100lb Hellfire missile on the chief during an attack in October.

One of his comrades told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''We were on patrol and the Apache helicopters were called in. We heard this posh voice come over the radio and knew it was Big H. they were tracking a Taliban leader - he was commander level. ''The Apache then let off some Hellfire missiles and its 30mm cannon and 'boom'. It was Big H all the way.''
Harry - a gunship co-pilot - is on tour in Helmand and has been flying daily combat missions helping ''troops in contact'', the code given when ground forces are engaged by enemy fighters and he has become a very popular figure with his comrades. 

The insider added: ''I met him in the cookhouse. I saw this bloke standing in line and I went, 'That's Big H.' He's like a normal squaddie. All the guys in Afghan have so much respect for him and love him. ''Big H is a legend, he's been out in Afghan and he's doing the business. All the guys love him - he's Big H. He likes a drink and a laugh and he's one of the lads.''"

Was looking at some of the news regarding his U.S. tour. He strikes me as the type of military officer soldiers like to work for. I think given the opportunity he'll make an outstanding career military officer.

Also while reviewing them, I had a bit of a premature thought. The current Duke of York has no male children to carry forward the title so upon his death it will revert back to the crown. It is also the traditional title for the second son of the king/queen. Should he marry anytime soon, do you think he will get a lesser title (a'la his uncle) until  he can inherit the title "Duke of York"?
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Kalafrana on May 15, 2013, 02:00:27 AM
Current practice seems to be for princes to be given peerages on marriage. Given that Prince Harry will be the next Duke of York, I imagine he will be given an earldom when he marries, following the precedent of his uncle Edward.

Post by: RoyalWatcher on June 12, 2013, 03:40:42 PM
When the PoW ascends the throne, at some point Prince William will be installed as the new PoW. If Harry isn't married by that point, I wonder if Harry will still use the "Wales" distinction (as in Captain Harry Wales)? Or, do you think his father will bestow upon him a peerage prior to marriage since his brother and his family would be the Wales'? 
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Kalafrana on June 13, 2013, 04:20:57 AM
As far as I know, the point hasn't arisen before. The habit of giving younger sons peerages only on marriage is a fairly recent development. The last Prince of Wales who had two or more adult sons living was the future Edward VII. Albert Victor was created Duke of Clarence in 1890 and George Duke of York in 1892.

It would be perfectly possible to give Prince Harry a peerage on his father's accession. Doubtless he will be the next Duke of York, but he will have to wait for his uncle Andrew to die for that.

Ann
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: mcdnab on June 13, 2013, 12:00:27 PM
I suspect it will be similar to the situation of the Queen's younger sons - all of them had to wait for marriage.
I suspect the view being that being Prince Andrew and Prince Edward was perfectly ok for them until that point.
In fact one of the reasons for bestowing peerages on them at their marriages was to make it easier to correctly address their wives.
A way of avoiding the Diana issue - she technically was of course HRH The Princess of Wales or Princess Charles but in common parlance was styled in the press and almost everywhere as Princess Diana.
Granting Edward and Andrew peerages on marriage avoided that and neither Sarah or Sophie have been styled incorrectly as a result.
It also avoids the awkward situation given the innacuracy and lack of intelligence of many reporters of having them styled Princess Andrew or Princess Edward.
I am sure Harry will be fine simply being Prince Harry until he gets married if he does.

Gosh, is today April 1st?!? I read today that Prince Harry is has left his post as an Apache helicopter pilot to take a desk job organizing ceremonial events in London. If this is true, I'm really surprised at this. I thought with William joining the royal fold, Prince Harry would continue his helicopter career, but apparently not. Didn't he just qualify to be an Apache pilot?! This all seems so strange and not like Harry. If it is indeed true, I hope the chap is okay with it all. He doesn't strike me as the "desk job" type.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: grandduchessella on January 17, 2014, 05:06:07 PM
It's true. It could be a matter of, with the shrinking of the immediate royal family, combined with the age of his grandparents, that he and William will have to take on more of a full-time role (William more than Harry which is why Harry isn't leaving the military entirely). Maybe his relationship with Cressida is a factor as well as well as his desired wish to work more on some of the charities he's involved with? This gives him the military career, helping the RF, helping his personal life and charitable endeavors. It takes him out of the active role he seems to like but it could be a trade-off he's willing to make.

From CNN: "Prince Harry is ending his time with Britain's Army Air Corps and is taking a staff officer role in London, Kensington Palace announced Friday. The move takes him out of a potential combat role flying Apache helicopters and gives him a desk job in London....The move to a new role comes at a time of increasing British media speculation about his relationship with Cressida Bonas. Harry, who is known as Captain Wales to his fellow servicemen, will keep the same rank in his new position.  His responsibilities "will include helping to co-ordinate significant projects and commemorative events involving the Army in London," a Kensington Palace news release said. Prince Harry spent 3½ years in training and operational service with the Apache Force during his time with the Army Air Corps. He was awarded the prize for best co-pilot gunner during training and became a fully operational Apache pilot in February 2012. He qualified as an Apache aircraft commander in July of last year. Lt. Col. Tom de la Rue, Harry's commanding officer in the Army Air Corps, said: "Captain Wales has reached the pinnacle of flying excellence as an Apache pilot, particularly in Afghanistan and, in the process, has proved to be a real inspiration to the many Army Air Corps officers and soldiers who have come to know him so well over the last two years."
Harry has embraced an increasingly public role in the past couple of years. In December, he and a team made up of wounded UK veterans reached the South Pole, after a grueling trek across the Antarctic with the Walking With The Wounded charity.... Harry had won praise from the UK media for embracing a more central public role in support of the Queen in her diamond jubilee year.
This included representing his grandmother at the Olympics Closing Ceremony and on a royal tour to the Caribbean."

Post by: Kalafrana on January 18, 2014, 07:42:07 AM
It is absolutely normal for officers to move between jobs every 2-3 years, and there is a practice of alternating them between 'regimental' and 'staff' appointments from Captain upwards. Similarly in the RAF; an officer will alternate between postings specific to his branch and more general ones (my father, an engineer, did a couple of postings at the Ministry of Defence). Prince Harry's being given a staff job is therefore nothing unusual, though my feeling is that it may well have been created for him, as I would expect someone more senior and more experienced to be organising ceremonial (just the kind of job for a Guards colonel or major in his last posting before retirement!).

Kal, struck the nail on the head. Career officers transfer back and forth to get a broad experience not just in combat but in support functions. The particular post however I'm sure is related to his position as a royal as well. After all putting on a grand old show is something the Windsor's have become quite good at ;)
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: RoyalWatcher on January 24, 2014, 05:09:35 PM
To be sure. I suppose it shocked me because of the expensive to train someone on flying an Apache. After all that training and one posting as a pilot (I understand Harry has been to Afghanistan twice, but only once as a pilot) in a combat zone, his flying career is over? Or, maybe I'm misunderstanding and he will transition back and forth between a desk job and flying. If he won't be flying anymore, he's got to be really upset with this. I would be.

Maybe it's all part of the overall plan. Have Charles, Camilla, William, Kate and Harry start to move into more prominent roles while HM and the Duke reseed a bit with each passing year.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Kalafrana on January 25, 2014, 04:00:47 AM
I imagine Harry's next posting will be flying. By then he will probably have enough seniority to be promoted to Major and take command of a squadron.

Ann
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: IvanVII on January 29, 2014, 10:58:05 PM
Should he continue as an active duty officer he will have additional "flying" assignments. Squadron command would most likely be next, then another staff position, then another leadership position which would most likely have some (albeit quite a bit less) flying time. After that his flight time would most likely be limited.

Naval officers often complain that by the time the get enough sea time to enjoy the privlege of command, the (usually) one shot they have at being a ship's captain (which most consider the pinnacle of their career, even those that go on to be admirals) comes and goes so  fast they feel cheated

Don't get me wrong, I love his playful side and I hope he never loses that.  It was just a gut feeling I had, but since his birthday has come and gone, I was apparently very wrong.   

Interesting, I had almost the opposite feeling, that the Queen would be disinclined to grant him a peerage until he had proven himself mature enough to hold the honor.  In any event, given the precedent Her Majesty has followed throughout her reign I suspect we will have to wait for Harry's marriage to see him wearing a ducal coronet.

It would not surprise me that if he marries before his father becomes king he is created an Earl, as there is always the potential that the Duke of York title could become his.

It looks as though he will in due course become Duke of York, as the current Duke only has daughters and looks unlikely to have more children. Interestingly, the last Duke of York who passed the title to a son by inheritance was Richard, father of Edward IV. Every Duke of York since has either succeeded to the throne or died without a son.

Usually. The exception was George V, who was Duke of York as younger son of the Prince of Wales. The title is normally given to the monarch's second son, but Queen Victoria created her second son Duke of Edinburgh.

When Edward, 4th Duke of York, became King Edward IV, he succeeded his third cousin once removed (Henry VI). That must be the furthest the Dukedom of York ever has been from the reigning line.

While it's traditional for a younger son of a monarch to become Duke of York, that's only when the title is available!

I can't imagine that Prince Henry of Wales will ever become Duke of York.  The present Duke of York is only 54 - excepting any unfortunate accident or illness he is likely to be around for another 30 to 40 years.  By the time of his death when the Dukedom of York falls extinct and is available to be granted anew, Harry will have been long married and probably will have grown children (maybe even grandchildren). 

Harry will most likely be granted some other dukedom when he marries.

One other thought is if William and Kate have another son, Harry could indeed get a different dukedom and "Duke of York" may lay in abeyance until that child marries. By that time it may be very likelly that William will be king.

Quite true, although the timing suggests that even William's second son (assuming he has one) might not become Duke of York.   

Let's say this new baby is a second son, and that he is granted a dukedom on his marriage 30 years from now.  Given the Windsors' longevity, the current Duke of York has a good chance of still being around (he'd be about 84 or 85 years old, still younger than his parents are today).

Then again - anything can happen.  There might not even be a monarchy in 2045.  Or the granting of new peerages may have ceased by then. 
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Превед on September 30, 2014, 01:21:41 PM
The only reason for Harry to be made a duke would be to give his children "a handle in front of their names", wouldn't it? The oldest son Lord Y / Earl of Y and eventually duke and the younger sons and the daughters  Lord / Lady X Mountbatten-Windsor instead of plain Mr. / Ms. X Mountbatten-Windsor?

Besides there is not much point in being a duke, especially for a royal who already is high up the pecking order. Dukes, royal or not, no longer have the automatic right to sit in the House of Lords (the whole point of the original peerage) and their current right of electing and be elected to sit in the House of Lords will probably soon be discontinued. (Interestingly, the massive creation of life peers during the last decades has probably halted the drive to create an upper house with regular elections.)

And it's a long time ago (centuries) since a peerage was granted with any lands attached to it. (With the exception of the Duchy of Cornwall.)



Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Kalafrana on October 01, 2014, 03:07:13 AM
Not quite. The 1917 Royal Warrant provides that male line grandchildren of a monarch are Prince/Princess and HRH (though for some reason the Earl of Wessex has chosen not to have his children use it). when the Prince of Wales succeeds Prince Harry will be the son of a monarch and his children therefore grandchildren of a monarch. Children of a male line grandson of a monarch are Lord and Lady in any case. E.G. Prince Michael of Kent is a grandson of George V, and his children are Lord Frederick Windsor and Lady Gabriella Windsor. The difference with a dukedom is that the eldest son uses his father's second title by courtesy, so that the Duke of Kent's elder son is the Earl of St Andrews (his elder son uses the third title and is Baron Downpatrick), while the younger son is Lord Nicholas Windsor and the daughter Lady Helen Taylor, nee Windsor.

If Harry marries and has children before the death of his grandmother the Queen then it is likely she will issue Letters Patent stating they will be Prince or Princess of Great Britain etc - (as the eventual grandchildren of a sovereign they will eventually be entitled to that anyway as has been pointed out) - she issued patents stating that all the children of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge would be HRH and Prince or Princess of Great Britain etc - as the 1917 patent only created the eldest son of the eldest son of the Prince of Wales HRH and if Prince George had been a girl she would merely have been Lady.

The modern habit of creating younger prince's Royal dukes on marriage is in part to avoid their largely non-royal wives having awkward titles and styles or being mis-titled by the press - HRH Princess Edward of GB (HRH The Countess of Wessex), HRH Princess Andrew (HRH The Duchess of York) etc - without the title the press and most of the public would have gone with Princess Sophie or Princess Sarah just as they went with Princess Diana instead of The Princess of Wales.

Title wise there is a bit of a dearth of traditional ones left now - the Earl of Wessex has been promised Edin on his parents death, Gloucester, Kent, Cambridge and York are all in use with only York likely to become extinct but not for several decades.
Of the historical titles y Clarence (which has no strong association with a place) is free and it was last used along with Avondale for Edward VII's eldest son.
Cumberland and Albany are technically available given they are suspended titles but are unlikely on those grounds
Sussex used for one of the son's of George III is free
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: Kalafrana on November 24, 2014, 01:54:52 AM
I think Clarence is unlikely, as it has an unfortunate history.

Another of George III's sons was Duke of Suffolk, so that is available.
Title: Re: Prince Henry/Prince Harry of Wales
Post by: mcdnab on November 24, 2014, 06:16:28 AM
Yes Clarence does have an unfortunate history attached to it.

Duke of Suffolk was last created in 1551 for Henry Grey son in law of Charles Brandon and father of Lady Jane Grey.
The current Earldom of Suffolk was created for the branch of the Howard family in 1603 and is still extant - it is unlikely that you would in the modern world create a dukedom with the same territorial designation as an existing other title unless it were for the same person.

The title you are thinking of is Sussex i suspect which I mentioned above.

Принц переквалифицировался в садовники. Временно.

А не в управдомы, как у классика. Велкобританские киношники заставили исхудавшего в африканских джунглях принца Гарри Уэльского сыграть эпизодическую роль садовника в короткометражном фильме на церемонии открытия Чемпионата мира по рэгби 2015.
Денег за актерское мастерство принцу не предложили. Во имя искусства, так сказать.

Prince turned into gardener. Temporarily.

But not into a janitor, like in the classic. (? ? ?) British filmmakers made Prince Harry of Wales, emaciated in the African jungles, play a cameo role as a gardener in a short film at the opening ceremony of the Rugby World Cup of 2015. The prince was not offered money for his acting. It was in the name of art, so to speak.

See http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/3371105.html (http://ru-royalty.livejournal.com/3371105.html)
Video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3Mbd9W9u50&feature=youtu.be (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3Mbd9W9u50&feature=youtu.be)

A funny skit, but doesn't the Prince exhibit a too posh accent for an early 19th-century gardener? And was there really a black pupil (and black parents or members of staff) at Rugby in 1823? For example the first black school boy at Etonian didn't enroll untill 1964. Revisionist is what it is - the powers that be trying to paint a bleak past more colourful (pun intended) and inclusive than it was. Even though the idea seems to have been to include former rugby stars among the spectactors.

This is the BEST news!!! I am over the moon with happiness for them both! What a gorgeous couple they make. Their happiness just radiates...they are going to be such an awesome couple!

I must admit I am somewhat proud that Meghan is an American and she hails from my home state of California. I am looking so forward to Prince Harry's wedding. For the whole of his life, he has had a special place in my heart. May happiness forever rain down upon them.

I know that there are some idiots out there who are quick to remind us all what happened the last time a British Royal took up with an American divorcee.   However, that was an entirely different situation.  Harry is not in line for the throne, after all (his brother William, and then William's son, George, are).  So there is really no comparison to Edward VII and Wallis Simpson and anyone trying to make such a comparison, IMO, sounds like a moron.

Also, this is not 1936 anymore.  Prince Charles, next in line to the throne is himself a divorcee and so is his current wife, Camilla Parker Bowles, the Duchess Of Cornwall.   So even if Harry was next in line after Charles, I don't see any issues about it.  Of course, since Harry is not next in line, this point is moot.

I wish all my best to Harry and Meghan.

I largely agree. Harry and Meghan have little in common with the Duke and Duchess of Windsor.

Given that the Cambridges will be having their third child between now and the wedding, the chances of Harry succeeding are pretty low. I think there would have been more controversy had William chosen to marry a divorcee, but it doesn't seem to be a major issue for Harry.

I shall be busy on Sunday. I've been asked to talk about the match on Radio Devon's breakfast programme!

I suspect they are much more rounded and mature persons than the Windsors, but really, the similarities are oddly many:
- The bride is older than the groom, who had a somewhat interrupted relationship with his mother.
- The groom is considered extremely handsome and attractive, more so than the bride.
- The bride's maternal family hails from the American South, with its troubled and hateful past and old grudges.
- The bride has chosen a career based on outward appearance (society hostess / socialite and actress).

Meghan Markle's maternal African-American ancestry has so far received most of the genealogical attention, but there are some interesting things on her paternal side too:

- Her 3x great grandmother, Irish-born Mary Bird née McCaugue, might have worked as a maid at Windsor Castle in 1856. See this article (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-4913756/Meghan-Markle-s-ancestor-royal-maid-Windsor.html).

- The Markle name is Pennsylvania Dutch, i.e. actually Deutsch rather than Dutch. Most likely it hails from the small Alsatian village of Lampertsloch, today in France, (according to this article (http://www.dw.com/en/tracing-meghan-markles-german-roots/a-41574493)) whence a certain Hans Martin Merckel (1699 - 1777) emigrated to Pennsylvania. At that time Lampertsloch, part of the Lordship of Lichtenberg, was already under French suzerainty, but in 1736  the lordship passed from the last Count of Hanau-Lichtenberg through his late heiress Charlotte to her widowed husband Landgrave Ludwig VIII of Hesse-Darmstadt. Her maternal aunt was BTW British George II's Queen Caroline of Ansbach. After the extinction of the House of Hanau a minor war almost broke out between Hesse-Darmstadt and Hesse-Cassel because of the partition of the Hanau inheritance (Hanau-Münzenberg, including Rumpenheim, going to Hesse-Cassel and Hanau-Lichtenberg going to Hesse-Darmstadt.)

When the French Revolution ended the feudal Hessian lordship in this part of Alsace, Charlotte of Hanau-Lichtenberg's grandson was soon to be Grand Duke of Hesse and by Rhine and her granddaughter Wilhelmine had already lived and died as Grand Duchess Natalya Alexeyevna (first wife of Emperor Paul).

The name Markle is thus an Anglification of the rather widespread German surname Merkel, a diminutive of male first names like Markwart or Markhard. The future member of the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha is probably no relation to Chancellor Angela Merkel née Kasner's first husband Ulrich Merkel, who hails from the S-C-G-ish ancestral woods in Thuringia, specifically from Cossengrün just outside the city of Greiz. Those Merkels seem to have lived there ever since it was part of the Principality of Reuss, Senior Line.

Reflections on the royal wedding...I've been waiting for this day a long time! Prince Harry has always had a special place in my heart. He couldn't have chosen a more perfect partner to share his life with. Being a huge anglophile, I am beyond proud that Meghan is American and hails from my home state. What a beautiful woman and soul she is. Her wedding dress was so classic and so lovely. Perfect. I'm so happy she wore a tiara and one that we have not seen since the 30's (I'm hugely into the jewels of the Royal Families of Europe, but especially of Great Britain). Queen Mary's bandeau tiara was such a gorgeous choice, and it will become Meghan's tiara now to wear at royal functions. I was thinking that Harry would have a new one made that would be uniquely hers, but since the bandeau hasn't been in use for so long, it's basically like seeing a new tiara. Her veil...oh my, how dramatic and how stunning. She paid tribute to all 53 countries of the Commonwealth with her 5-meter long wedding veil, which represented the flowers of each Commonwealth country. She also incorporated two flowers with personal meaning: Wintersweet (Chimonanthus praecox), which is grown outside her Nottingham Cottage home with Prince Harry, and California Poppy (Eschscholzia californica), the state flower from her place of birth. Meghan’s veil also included crops of wheat delicately embroidered and blended into the flora, to symbolise love and charity. I was so pleased to see Harry choose to wear a wedding band on his wedding finger. William chose not to. His father wears a little pinky gold band with his signet ring. Prince Phillip also shunned a wedding band. Good on you Harry! The flowers were amazing decorating all the archways and entrances...just stunning. I also loved how the seat next to William was empty...because it reserved for his Mom, Princess Diana. Meghan incorporated some of Diana's favorite flowers into her bridal bouquet. So many happy memories made today! It brings me back to that day in July 1981 getting up early to watch his Mom and Dad get married. I'll leave with 1 Corinthians 13:4-: "...Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres..."

Many, many congratulations to the new Duke and Duchess of Sussex!!!

Clarence does not refer to County Clare in Ireland, but to the town of Clare in Suffolk. It was first created for Lionel of Antwerp, who married the heiress of the de Clare Earls of Hertford and Gloucester. Clarence is thus the de Clare inheritance.

The Duchess of Sussex delivered a healthy baby boy early this morning as announced by the proud papa, Prince Harry.

Congratulations to this lovely couple! My hope is that the little one is named Spencer after his mother's maiden name. As far as the little one being granted letters patent to be styled "his royal highness" and a royal prince, my hunch is that that will not happen. I don't think Prince Harry wants his children to be hindered by royal titles. So, he will most likely be styled the Earl Dumbarton or Lord Dumbarton one of his Prince Harry's subsidiary titles. Again, this is just a hunch, I could be completely wrong on all counts!
