Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas seem inseparable these days, but which other beauties has the cheeky royal been linked to in the past?
Prince Harry has rarely been seen without Cressida Bonas since 2012 now, but the royal Lothario has never been short on beautiful ladies. Who can blame his string of (sometime rumoured) ex-girlfriends, the cheeky chappy definitely looks like he knows how to have a good time. We don’t know anyone that could say no to the cute royal’s chat-up line “Do you want to come back to my palace for a drink?”. Yes, Harry. Yes, we do.
Harry was linked to Essex girl, Lauren Pope
The palace in question was Harry’s basement den at Prince Charles’ Highgrove Palace, here are just a few of the girls who are rumoured to have accepted Harry’s invitation. Harry was linked to long-term TOWIE star Lauren Pope. Lauren’s gorgeous, but we just can’t imagine what these two had to talk about (if they did any talking). Perhaps Lauren was sick of a bit of rough and was looking for a bit of toff instead.

Since the news broke that the royal pair are expecting, rounds of people have been predicting what the future heir to the throne may look like, and it turns out the future third in line for the throne may end up looking like the current third in line, Uncle Harry - that's Prince Harry!
Despite both sporting a much darker head of hair, the odds of having a red-headed child are actually quite high for the royal couple. In fact, scientists found that the chances of any couple in Britain giving birth to a red-head may be higher than expected, as a study of ancestral DNA of more 5,000 people in the UK showed that a whopping 38.3% had the red-haired gene. With a ginger brother, there is a more than likely chance that Wills carries the gene, as for Kate, Alistair Moffat - director of BritainsDNA - told the Daily Mail: “As a result of our study, we can say she has a 38.3 per cent chance of being one."

According to ABC News, the child - whether a girl or boy - will eventually be heir to the British throne, according to new legislation awaiting final approval. The Duchess was admitted to King Edward VII Hospital on Monday (December 3, 2012) with hyperemesis gravidarum, an acute morning sickness that requires supplementary hydration and nutrients.

Halloween is prime time to dress up to revere your idols, scare your friends or ridicule those that you may feel deserve it. Occasionally however some people can get offended, which is exactly what happened with Prince Harry dressed up as a Nazi a few years back, and more recently when Sum 41 front man Deryck Whibley and a friend dressed up as his ex-wife Avril Lavigne and her new fiancee Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger, reports the NME.
Kroeger retorted to the offence with a tweet via his bands Twitter page, saying: "Hey Deryck loved the costumes! we were going to dress up as you guys this year but all the parties had celebrity themes haha! -CK"

Even the royals are using twitter as a mode of communication now: “Just announced - The Duke of Cambridge will not join his wife as planned on royal engagements in Tyne and Wear and Stockton-on-Tees (Wed).” the official Clarence House Twitter feed stated. “The Duke of Cambridge will instead attend the funeral of Olga Powell, who was his and Prince Harry’s nanny for much of their childhood.” This means Kate will have to attend separate engagements in Newcastle, Gateshead and Stockton-on-Tees on Wednesday without Prince William; the first time she will have done such a thing without the Duke of Cambridge on her arm. Instead, William and his brother Harry will attend the funeral of Olga Powell, a former nanny of theirs. In an interview with The Mirror before the royal wedding, she said the boys had been “like my grandsons.”
This, perhaps, would not be such a daunting task for Mrs. Middleton, as we’re sure she’s fully capable of handling such an occasion, even without her man by her side, but given that it’s the first public outing since the topless scandal that engulfed her recently, there’s more pressure on here to present an amicable public face for the British Royal Family.
Gary Barlow’s performance of Sing at the Classic Brits will feature an accompaniment from the group, Military Wives, reports The Metro.
Sing, the single that made Prince Harry the first royal to top the charts, is up for the Classical Brit Awards ‘single of the year award’ after shooting to number one in the singles chart, while the album of the same name took the top spot in the albums chart. The successful choir group Military Wives will perform the song, whilst Barlow and Andrew Lloyd Webber - the composers of the single for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations - will appear on stage at the awards show playing grand pianos. “The Classic Brits is something I’ve never done before, so I’m very excited to be a part of it,” explained Barlow. “It’ll be nice to get everyone back together for a performance of Sing as we’ve only ever performed it once together live.”
In My Dreams – the first studio album from Military Wives - topped the charts and got them into the top ten of the Classic FM Hall Of Fame. Opera singer Russell Watson will also be performing at the event after having to cancel his appearance at the event last year due to health problems.
