This is a rehash of the same old same old, with a couple of additional angles about Harry being scarred by his parents' divorce etc. if he is then it's odd that he would be seeking Camilla out. Harry probably isn't particularly ready to settle down yet. He's only 31 not 41 and the Daily Fail should just settle down.

Prince William’s pal Guy Pelly dodges £400k tax bill after nightclub folds EXCLUSIVE: Accounting expert says HMRC has “basically zero” chance of getting money

A COMPANY owned by Prince William’s pal Guy Pelly has dodged a £400,000 tax bill.

The collapse of exclusive nightclub Public landed Pelly with the HMRC debt.

The London haunt attracted celebrity revellers after Prince Harry celebrated his 27th birthday there in 2011.

^^ Shucks, the Countess of Wessex's company owed 1.7 million when it went bust.   Pelly is peanuts in comparison!       eating cookies

But the 1.7 million was owed to ALL debtors and not just HMRC. There was f.e. the 590K to Barclays Bank and more. So when Pelly owes 400K to the HMRC, he probably has more debts. It is just that all debts to the government (including taxes) are preferential debts, which means that they are paid-off first before other debtors will get their money back.

So when the HMRC isn't getting their money back, the others definitely won't get it back. And the total debt is probably way more than 1.7 million.

^ Ah, well, Pelly can hold his head up high to be in such illustrious company.  Sophie went bankrupt and left many debtors holding the bag, Edward's company had about 40.00 left in the bank and he would have been bankrupt had Phillip's friends not pumped money in over the years, and Sophie's brother went bankrupt with his pub, as well.   So Pelly shouldn't fret!

I am sure that he doesn't. He has more venues and his royal buddies will no doubt make sure these venues attract a crowd.

Marriage of Princess Charlotte's godfather breaks down over his ‘unreasonable behaviour’ less than three years after his wedding where William and Harry were ushers


The marriage of one of Princess Charlotte's godfathers has ended less than three years after he tied the knot in a lavish ceremony dubbed the 'society wedding of the year'.

Thomas van Straubenzee, 33, who has known the Duke of Cambridge since prep school, married Lady Melissa Percy, the youngest daughter of the Duke of Northumberland, in Northumbria in 2013.

Princes William and Harry were both ushers at the ceremony while Chelsy Davy, Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend, was a bridesmaid.

What counts as unreasonable behaviour? Do we have any insider info as to what went so wrong with their marriage?

^ Most marriages in the UK end under the umbrella of 'unreasonable behaviour' nowadays. It can mean infidelity, too much time at work, mental cruelty, emotional blackmail, all sort of reasons. There has never been anything come out about the reason(s) for the end of this marriage (or Katie Percy's marriage for that matter) that I have read. I suppose we will have to wait and see if Tom Van appears with a new girlfriend in a couple of months.

Camilla wearing white... I don't know how it is in other countries, but in The Netherlands that is a big no-no. Only the bride wears white, and perhaps the bridal children.

Maybe she thought she was going to ibiza (sometimes they do all white weddings there...)

No clue what the weather is like there or what have you but that is the most beautiful wedding gown I've seen in a long time.  Too bad about the hem getting dirty but the drape, cut, style, etc, make it jaw-droppingly gorgeous to me.  And a happy bride, too!
