Harry & Cressy's Break-Up is All Guy Pelly's Fault!

Wednesday, April 30, 2014

I wasn't going to comment on Harry and Cressida, because as lovely she seems, who really thought when Harry started dating a 22 year-old that it was going to have a happy ending? Really. Especially considering Cressy is a bit of a wild child. I am just saying, I wasn't optimistic. (Plus, deep down I am not over Harry and Chelsy. Oh, those sunny, happy days...) These turbulent love birds could still prove me wrong, but until they really put some elbow grease into proving it to me, I will only quickly scan the scrunchie shots. I break silence however, because there is some cutting edge news. It is all Guy Pelly's fault! They broke up thanks to Guy Pelly. That man...



I have just read a piece in The Telegraph that claimed Harry and Cressida broke up after a heated row over plane fair to America for the Pelly wedding. You don't believe me, so I will quote the paper:
The couple had been due to fly to America together to attend the wedding of the Prince’s friend Guy Pelly on Saturday, but Miss Bonas had to pay for her own £650 air fare and did not want to spend so much money if their troubled relationship was doomed. She chose to grasp the nettle and confront the Prince over their future, which resulted in a “bit of a bust-up” and the decision to go their separate ways.
Let me just say that's right around 1,000 U.S. dollars, which is...a pretty sweet deal for a transatlantic flight. Where has the world gone, right? Expensive airfare, that's where. And now expensive airfare has supposedly torn a royal romance to shreds.

Apparently, Cressida tries to make her own way financially and has had trouble keeping up with her party-boy prince. If Cressida is indeed on a fixed income, Harry really should be paying from his own pocket to keep her happy and comfortable on their get-aways. It is the only chivalrous answer, and a fair trade for the invasion of privacy she undergoes.

Let's remember that these two have always been on the stormy side, (That, boys, is what you get when you date a woman under 25. I KNOW.) but this is the biggest break that has been reported and substantially confirmed. Nevertheless, there is hope for happiness yet:
Friends suggested that the pair “might both regret it” and could get back together at a later date. However, Miss Bonas, 25, was said to have been unhappy for some time, partly because of the strain of being in the public eye and partly because the dance graduate was feeling “frustrated and unfulfilled” at her inability to pursue a career on the stage while dating the Prince.
If you are interested in this relationship, the article has lot of details...more than we need. People's financial situation ought not to be in papers, but there it is. One of the drawbacks of dating a prince. To be fair to Miss Bonas and Prince Harry, friends assure The Telegraph the airfare was only the straw that broke the camel's back, the couple had been tense for a while. Is that good...or bad? I don't know, but if you need more details, pop over to the article here.


I wish both Harry and Cressida the best and I hope they work everything out the way it is meant to be.  I already got my royal happily ever after, and so will now return to looking through photos of the adorable Mr. Grumpy-Pants and his picture perfect mummy.








"We are the coolest, Mom? Fist bump!"

  1. Take heart Harry and Cressy fans! Will and Kate broke up too and look how that turned out!
    As always, informative without being snarky. Love your blog, Jane

  2. From what I have read regarding Cressida, I think she may suit not being with Harry. It seems that she is more of a free spirit than what would suit constantly being under pressure of being in the public eye. I think she loves Harry but what comes with him is more the issue. Unfortunately for her, we all know that Harry is not likely to back away from his family and position. Cressida is a performer at heart - her dancing, singing at her sisters wedding and reported interest in acting. None of these can really be done if you are a Duchess. Sadly, for her to be fufilled as an individual, she may need to be with someone else.

  3. I feel for her. Harry may be telling her that William and Kate will be the ones doing all the ribbon cutting, but the fact is,she wouldn't be just marrying a prince, she would have to BE a Princess, (or Duchess) and it's probably not the job she wants.

  4. The images of Harry 'chivalrously' protecting a naked young woman's 'modesty' in the Las Vegas hotel suite is still too fresh in my mind... I wouldn't counsel a nice girl to go anywhere near "Prince" Harry until he has lived a year in a state of self-control and constraint proving to someone worth marrying that he can be relied on to be faithful and true. He's the cuter prince and he seems like a basically sweet guy, but he cheapens himself by his shallow and self-indulgent behavior, Grow up, Harry, and make us proud of you! (In other words, live according to your professed christian faith.)

    1. I don't think Harry has done anything different than what a lot of other guys out there, younger and older, have done and do. This does not mean that they cannot mature once they have met the right girl and does not mean that they will be unfaithful. There are a lot of married christian's out there that do the same. Just nobody is interested in their naked photos.

    2. I too think that many men including Christians sleep around before they are married and then are faithful after marriage. But, that doesn't mean it's a good thing or that's how it usually goes, or there are not consequences. (Not even going to discuss STD's...ick!)The high divorce rate today and published studies show that people who behave that way are far more likely to cheat on their spouse and even divorce. You are not supposed to marry someone thinking you can change them, so Harry should change first, and demonstrate he can withstand temptation for a significant period. Then he can find a mature and wonderful girl. I bet he is getting pretty lonely. The clubbing lifestyle is not as exciting as it looks.
      Get your act together, Harry! We wish you the best and.... We want another Royal Wedding!

    3. Well if she sees the pictures today of Harry partying in Miami just days after breaking up, I would not ever go back to him. He has no respect for her or any other woman. At least for now he kept his pants on in public but I just wonder how many he invited back to his hotel room. She was not royal material either.

  5. There was some talk on twitter than Wills and Kate's breakup was just to get the press off their back and maybe they're employing the same strategy with Cressy and Harry...

    1. I did see that theory expressed, but I disagree whole heartedly. I fully believe it was a legitimate split, however short lived.

      Delete
    2. Me too. I think W&K had a legit split. And their engagement interview did a good job of backing that theory in my opinion.

      Delete
    3. Exactly. Basically, to float the theory it was a ruse, you have to call Kate a liar, and that doesn't sit well with me. Additionally, it seems a daft plan to start with.A staged break-up? She was clearly miserable. You just can't fake her pain those few short months. And, they didn't split anywhere near long enough for interest to die down, which they would have known before they did it. Look how long people followed Chelsy and guessed about whether there was a reconciliation on the cards. Nothing about the hypothesis holds water in my mind. Anyway...

  6. I feel horrible....I hope this opens the door to a Harry & Chelsy reunion! Her and Kate seemed to get along great, and she's had a few years to accomplish things on her own with much less media attention. And she never sold a story, right?

    Haha sorry the airfare is funny to me - wouldn't she have a trust fund or something! But I agree it's his friends wedding if he *wanted* her there he should pay. While I'm sure she's decent, she always looks miserable (Kate & Chelsy, generally speaking, were better at smiling), she's young, wild, eclectic and that wouldn't go well in The Firm

    Another reason I feel awful for bein happy? Cressy is ight with Eugenie and Eugenie is a real....B-word to Kate. Hae you seen various videos of Eugenie bumping Kate, turning her back to Kate, etc? It always seems to catch Kate off guard then she composes herself and moves on.

  7. Can't say I'm surprised to read about this break up. While they are a cute couple the age difference and maturity levels were probably too big of hurdle to overcome. I don't really buy the story about the airfaire, I don't think Harry would be that cheap, if he was I would expect William to give him a talking to.

    IMO Harry is looking to settle down and start having kids, with in the next couple of years, but Cressy is nowhere near that. And I have to say, I thought that the constant wearing of high top tennis shoes and hair scrunches kind of shows how immature she still is. Plus she just finished her schooling in dance and would probably love to be able to pursue a career in dance.

    The big differences between H&C and W&K is the fact that W&K are the same age, have similar interests and Kate was willing to put up with just about anything because of her love for William. I hope to see Harry find a woman who is mature enough to handle him and all that comes with him, a woman that really loves him. I don't see a Chelsy/Harry reunion in the future, I don't think a royal life is what Chelsy wants.

  8. I never thought she was princess material. The problem is, though, that the longer Harry waits to find a future wife, the more he will be in the same boat Charles was in when he married Diana. You wait too long and you need to find a younger bride. If Harry wants to get serious about having the kinds of family William has he needs to start looking to more than the local party girl. He's a royal prince for crying out loud! His pool is far deeper than most guys!

    1. I agree with you. I'm sure it' s difficoult to match love and public duties, as I am sure that being in the firm is not a fairytail. Cressida is for sure a nice girl, but I really don't see in that role (nor Chelsy, to be honest).
      I hope the reported story is false and Harry is not that mean ...

    2. Harry will never find a girl like Kate. He need's to stop looking for a "kate style and find someone that is like him as far as interest.

  9. I particularly liked them together his previous girlfriend looked like partying all the time. This girl however seemed pretty stylish and really looked like a girl in her early twenties, do not forget Kate was blamed to be plastic and trained for this job, so I think maybe she is a bit like Fergie was, hard to tame but definitely has a personality which is better than smiling and doing everything you are told. I hope they make it. I think Harry is not Williams type, he doesnt feel the urge to have a family and heir, so why bother with settling down?A.

  10. Funny that you brought Chelsy up and I couldn't agree more. I always hoped that after a few years apart, they would find eachother again and live hapily ever after. Who knows, maybe they will...
    But all personal opinions and rumours aside: In the end he should marry the one that makes him happy and we shouldn't bother speculating who's best for him, because we don't have a clue about how they are together in private. Chelsy, Cressida or someone else, it's all fine, as long as he's 100% happy and stands behind his decision.

  11. Hi Jane while she may have been fun and they may have had a good time together, she is definitely not appropriate for Harry at this stage in his life. He needs someone who is his age and is ready for commitment and all the stresses and scrutiny of dating a prince.

    She is so young and is just starting out so this was not right. Hopefully he will meet someone soon! :)

    I also believe he really loved Chelsy who could maybe have been his Kate... But I think she was the one to back out because of the pressure. Who could blame her ?
    I think Cressida must be adorable and charming, but not cut out for the Royal family. Look at the Sarah Ferguson disaster, although she and Andrew get on fine now.
    It is harder for Harry because of his status but also his character. The happiness William has found must be difficult for him. I'm sure he is delighted for his brother, but can't help thinking why he wasn't so lucky. But there is time yet... As RobinfromCA says, "he needs to start looking to more than the party girl".

  13. I think the problem is that her friends and the bevy of half siblings talk too much.
    I cannot understand how she plans to be a dancer/actress if she doesn't like being in the spotlight.
    Perhaps he will meet a nice young lady in the US this weekend--an American Princess would be great.

  14. I dont like Cressida so this is a perfect fine development for me LOL From what I have read Harry seems to be looking for something similar to Kate - down to earth and awesome. Cressida didnt seem to fit the bill. Maybe I should move to Europe and meet him - I bet Harry would love a horse riding girl who's not afraid to get dirty :P

  16. The daily mail reports harry having a "for men only" (but there's a brunette involved) party at a disco in miami ...

  17. I read somewhere that a King was concerned about a Prime Minister (Lloyd George) handing out so many knighthoods (?) because a person needs a certain income to maintain that lifestyle. I know I couldn't carry on a relationship with someone rich with my income, and I sympathize with Cressie wanting to pay her own way. I believe people would be Very Quick to call her his mistress if Harry paid her way.

    I know it is easier for me to act someone as scripted for the stage than to be my own sweet self. I gather I am not alone in that. A dancer's life stye and a Princess life style are verry different. I respect Chrissie for backing out.

    I believe Harry needs to act more mature. I think he is part of his own problem.

  18. Hi Jane, Im sorry to say that while I usually love your blog, I can't agree with you on the idea that dating someone under 25 nessecarily means it's not going end well. It all depends on the individual, doesn't it?
    I also wonder how much of the article is actually true, but whatever the reason they split up, I wish them both the best. Cressida seems like a successful, independent woman so if this is true and she wants to focus on her life and career first, all the more power to her :)

  19. Sophistication and style are prerequisites for someone on Harry's arm. The scrunchies and other hair embellishments are a big no no. Can't cope with Chelsea either.

    ReplyDelete
  20. More important than sophistication (and style is a personal choice, stop judging) is a good connection. Being able to find that person you can truly feel one with is what makes the basis for a lasting relationship. First thing required for that is for Harry to mature. He behaves like a teenager still.
