Prince Harry might be getting serious with that Scottish girl he snogged in June


Back in June of this year, I picked up a story from the UK tabloids about Prince Harry snogging a Scottish beauty queen. The Scottish lady’s name is Camilla Thurlow, and guess what? She’s still around. Grazia (not the best source, but sure) claims that after their naughty snog back in June, Camilla and Harry have been quietly seeing more of each other. Unlike Harry’s usual girlfriends, this one’s not a blonde – you can see her photo here. She’s very pretty and she doesn’t look like the kind of woman who needs a mountain of makeup. I hate the fact that we don’t have any photos of her on a red carpet, but I love that she’s not the kind of young woman who goes to the opening of an envelope as long as there are photographers on hand. Oh, and she’s not a socialite either! She actually has a job working for The Halo Trust, the anti-landmine organization closely associated with Princess Diana (and Harry too).

Has Prince Harry already moved on from Cressida Bonas?! So it seems, at least, according to British reports, which claim the 29-year-old royal is dating Camilla Thurlow, a 25-year-old beauty queen, who previously won the title of Miss Edinburgh.

According to multiple reports, the handsome prince was spotted locking lips with the brunette stunner at London hot spot Tonteria late last month after their mutual friend Guy Pelly orchestrated a night out for the good-looking pair.

“They’ve been texting ever since and she has been over for drinks at his apartment twice—once with friends and once on her own,” a source told Grazia of the budding couple.

Sounds like things are heating up if Thurlow is indeed visiting Harry’s Kensington Palace pad! And turns out, the two have quite a lot in common. Harry and Camilla first met through The Halo Trust, a charity organization made famous by the late Princess Diana, where Thurlow currently works. And not only do these two share a love of philanthropy, but Thurlow can also reportedly keep up with Harry’s hard-partying ways.

“Camilla is always the life and soul of the party. Harry is playing it cool because he wants to have fun, but Camilla could be just what he needs to get over Cressida once and for all,” the Grazia source added.

Clearly, Camilla is a far contrast Cressida, whom Harry apparently found “boring,” as one source told E! News just shortly after their breakup. “Harry thought she was boring toward the end,” the source dished after the former couple of two years called it quits. “She didn’t like to go out, party and have fun as often as he does, and they weren’t matched enough for him to commit. Cress is beautiful, intelligent and fun—but she’s no raver like Harry still enjoys. Harry just wasn’t ready to settle down and head down the route of getting serious with his royal commitments. It’s going to take a special girl to tame him.”

[From E! News]

Eh, I tend to think that Harry really doesn’t party like he used to. Maybe he’s just learned not to party so publicly (it isn’t so cute anymore now that he’s turning 30 next month). But I tend to think Harry is already in the process of “settling down.” As for Camilla… she sounds like an okay choice for him and marrying a Scot would probably help tamp down the independence talk. But no, I can’t see Harry marrying a woman named Camilla. That’s just creepy.

    Harry/Hairy needs a trip to the barber wow does he look bad.
    reminds me a crazy John McEnroe


    • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

      No more wondering if James Hewitt is the bio father – Harry looks so McEnroe – Excellent call on this :) :)

  2. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Harry looks beautiful in his uniform. The young woman is very pretty. I sort of side-eye the beauty queen part in this day and age, but at least she has a job doing something useful now. Maybe she needed the scholarship money.

    This is a generalization, but I went to Edinburgh, Scotland once and I was stunned by the beauty of the women. Their skin (maybe because of the misty, not that harsh of sun climate?) was just so radiant and creamy. I also love the combination of dark hair and light eyes, which many of them had. The men were lovely, too, but didn’t notice the skin as much.

    • Chris says:

      He wears it well, doesn’t he?

      (I hope young CBers with typical pale Celtic skin will be encouaged by your lovely comments too….and not agonise through the years of their peak beauty in trying for Kim K skintones via sunbeds and tangerine foundation! I witnessed this in Ireland, where such efforts produced hordes of indentikit ‘masked’ teenagers)

    • bluhare says:

      Did I mention I used to live in Edinburgh, goodnames? :)

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        I’m not surprised, pretty girl!

      • ArtHistorian says:

        I have only visited Edinburgh once, but I love it there. I felt completely at home. Though it is quite different it reminded me a bit of Copenhagen – a smallish city with tons of historic heritage.

        Edinburgh also has some wonderful art museum – especially the National Gallery of Scotland, it has a small but very very fine collection.

    • wolfpup says:

      White girls should be white. We are what we are, without the need to appear like another race; but I think that beachy sun worship, is also part of the draw to look rich, young, and carefree. I’ve been using Retin-A and sunscreen for almost 40 years. My skin is beautiful. I stopped the wind and surf when I saw what the sun had done to the skin on my arms – crinkly and damaged (my poor skin). White girls need hats and umbrella’s, like back in the day when white skin was protected with those fashions (aren’t we lucky to have sunscreen?). We are delicate in this way. And we can embrace our white beauty. I look much more beautiful with my white, than cooked by the sun. And I look 10-15 years younger than my age. I’m not bragging; I’m just telling the girls to get on board, and embrace their white beauty.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        The cultural history of the suntan is actually quite fascinating. Before the early 20th century pale skin was the ideal for women. Women who were tanned were women who worked – outdoors – i.e. peasants. That fashion changed in the early 20th century, where more people worked indoors and the rich had time for leisure – playing tennis, yachting in the Mediterranean, etc. Now, the fashion might change again because of self-tanning products, which are heavily used by every Z-list celebrity and wannabe.

    A Bar Girl Pickup. She’s just a another gap filler, he met at a BAR until he meets the next serious girlfriend.
    Just a Brunette Fame seeking Pageant Queen failure.

    She’ll lay down,be available, do as he wants, be his bootycall, until he meets another one who piques his interest for awhile. I just don’t see. Harry marrying until his late 30′s.

  4. GiGi says:

    I really think the next girl he’s serious about, he’ll marry. And it bodes well for this woman that she’s already working for an organization that’s meaningful to Harry. Perhaps she’d be the perfect mate for taking on his “unofficial” charity trips. She can be the anti-Kate!

  5. danielle says:

    I like this match! A non aristocrat who works for a charity? Nice.

    • Wilma says:

      She sounds kind of perfect to me. A good mixture of serious and fun.

      • MW says:

        That’s what I think. Nothing is wrong with a bright, educated, good-looking non-aristocrat. I would say he needs someone who knows how to have fun with him, and knows how to behave when it’s time to behave. (I never got the feeling that Cressida was a whole lot of fun). I think Camilla Parker Bowles is actually like that, and that is what kept Prince Charles enamored with her. Also, ironically, I bet this “new” Camilla’s mother took her name from CPB. The timing is right.

  6. Ronia says:

    If they are happy, that’s all that matters, in my book. This man has such charisma that I feel uncomfortable being about ten years his senior. LOL I’m also a huge fan of Scotland (I do love England’s countryside too), at one point I was determined to marry in a Scottish castle with adjacent church and have my guests stay in the nearby inn ala “Four weddings and a funeral”. Too bad it didn’t happen at the time, I still love this scene of the movie. I still love Scotland though. Reminds me of novels like “Wuthering Heights” and such… The hills, the clouds, the wind and the ruins… Very influential place.

    • jessica6 says:

      Scotland is simply gorgeous and divine; one of my favourite countries. I’ve ventured there many times, and fell in love with the topography, the people, the history, the cuisine. Sheer heaven. I’d go back to Scotland in a heartbeat. I preferred it to Ireland, and Ireland itself is gorgeous beyond belief. Wales is another place that oozes romanticism.

      But, Scotland…*SIGH*

      • knitter says:

        Scottish cuisine?! Please elaborate…

      • Chris says:

        Gawd forgive me but that was my thought too! (Cranachan’s nice though.)

      • jessica6 says:

        LOL! Knitter, not laughing at you, just that everyone raises their eyebrows when I mention Scottish fare. Scotland offers incredible lamb and beef dishes, not to mention a fine and delectable array of seafood entrees, and their baked goods are to die for. Ireland, too, offers some of the tastiest food I have ever enjoyed. People don’t equate that part of the world with delicious food, but it’s there, trust me.

      • knitter says:

        Didn’t know that, jessica6! One more reason to love Scotland :)

      • Decloo says:

        I hope you’ve read the “Outlander” books, then.

      • Ronia says:

        Yes, I’m a meat kind of gal and I do love my meat regularly. While I’m very big on irish stew :) , I couldn’t resist all the beef, steaks, and barbeque kind of meat in Scotland (we once had it prepared over open fire, rolled over it for hours, God, this was heavenly!). We also had quite a bit of game and it was delicious.

      • Aura says:

        Hmmm, I really loved Scotland but don’t know if I would say it’s more beautiful than Ireland. The west of Ireland would take a lot to beat it….

      • kri says:

        Oooh, the seafood!! I can only imagine. YUM!!

      • ArtHistorian says:

        I have a horrible weakness for a Scottish burr – my sister actually said “don’t marry anyone” before I took a trip to Edinburgh.

    • jessica6 says:

      @Aura: True, the west coast of Ireland is absolutely spectacular, no doubt about that. I loved the lakes of Killarney and the Dingle area. It’s just that for some reason, Scotland, especially the west coast and highlands region, really took my breath away. But you’re so right about the Irish west coast.

      @Ronia – I LOVED the Scottish open pit fire BBQs. Mmmmmm! Washed down with a few pints or a glass of fine red merlot.

      Also, I LOVED the small boutique hotels we stayed at in Ireland and Scotland…cozy to the max, lush duvets and pillows, and love the coffee/tea makers in the rooms.

      • Chris says:

        I misread that as ‘a few pints of fine red Merlot’ and nodded sagely, recalling how that kind of tippling would make *me* appreciate a new cuisine!

      • jessica6 says:

        Chris, LOL! Ah, tippling a few pints of red merlot would have me thinking bangers and mash were the cat’s meow! Few pints…I’d be in hospital hooked up to a drip! Two glasses are my absolute limit.

  7. Ali J says:

    Two Camilla’s. Ha.

    Please marry her Harry!

  8. Charlotte says:

    All ‘C’ names, Harry? Maybe he has a ‘C’ tattoo in an intimate place?

  9. Karen says:

    I love all these comments about Scotland! I’m leaving on a solo 2 week Great Britain adventure in a week and I’m so excited about the Scottish leg of the trip!

    • jessica6 says:

      Karen, believe me, you will simply fall in love with Scotland and its people. The country oozes romanticism and charisma. It is beautiful, haunting, cozy, cosmopolitan (in the cities) and there is something about the scent of Scottish air that is unique and found in no other place. I wish you a very happy, safe and memorable trip!

    • Ronia says:

      Oh, that’s lovely! My first times in Britain (mostly England and Scotland) were namely when I was a late teen/early 20s, single and I had a blast! The countryside was and is my big love. I’ve always said that my forever “close to my heart” Provence is a rich oil painting but British countryside is a water colour symphony. it’s lighter, brisk and somehow fresh. Have fun!

  10. Vee says:

    Watch the new show Outlander to see Scotland at its finest. The cinematography in the first episode blew me away. Scotland is stunning!
    Oh and I like this match.

    • Karen says:

      @Vee my best friend begged me to read the Outlander series and I immediately decided to add Scotland to my itinerary. I’ve watched the first episode 3 times :)

  11. bettyrose says:

    LOL @ Camilla. The family needs more of those.

    • wolfpup says:

      I want him to marry someone who will outshine Kate; low bar – shouldn’t be hard. I want a little more drama than boring Willnot and KatieCannot.

      • bettyrose says:

        Agreed, but they really need to come up with a unique nickname for her: Milla, Cami, Spare Consort. . .

  12. Leaflet says:

    Harry is another overrated dude in the looks department. He’s not really appealing to me. It’s his wealth that is more attractive than anything else. The office is a turnoff for me though. I guess the office would be a turnoff for anyone that doesn’t desire instant fame.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      He’s certainly not traditionally handsome – but I have a fatal weakness for gingers.

  13. Kikileith says:

    Harry romancing a Scot will in no way AT ALL tamp down talk of independence. I think for most it would have no bearing at all. And yes there’s a lot of amazing things about Scotland! (I’ve been in Edinburgh 12 years).

    • Anastasia says:

      Thank you for saying this. I doubt very seriously the good people of Scotland would say, “Oh Prince Harry is marrying a Scot? Well, NEVER MIND THEN!”

      It cracks me up to imagine that, but no, never going to happen.

  14. Reece says:

    1. ” …and head down the route of getting serious with his royal commitments.”
    Um, like his brother? *eye roll* Always taking swipes at him.
    2. On the surface she does sound like the best girl, so far. However! They’ve only been together a couple/few months. THEY may not be that serious yet. So can we all not shove them down Westminster aisle just yet. Don’t get me wrong, I will completely let loose the Harry Wedding Crazy when the time comes but like Cressida, I’m just gonna wait and see on this one.

  15. Amy says:

    Some guys do have a name type. I follow a Vlogger on Youtube who is dating a third girl in a row named Alli. *rolls eyes*

    I love the last picture of Kate and Harry standing together. It doesn’t imply anything (I think Kate is too serious for Harry) but it’s just funny.

  16. aquarius64 says:

    Why the rush to get Harry marry? He may not want to settle down. Anyway, the girl has a social media page which is a red flag for me. She blab anything and everything on there for bragging rights that she bagged a royal. I know Kate and Cressida did their bit of “sharing” with the press, but a girl with a Facebook page is asking for trouble.

    As for her, I wouldn’t trade in her pageant tiara for one from the Crown Jewels collections. Beauty queens are lumped in the same category as actresses, reality stars, and porn performers: good enough for a fling but not for a ring. Camilla shouldn’t set her sights as Ms. Right (or should I say the future HRH Princess or Duchess Right). She should realize she’s the lazy of Harry Ms. Right Now.

  17. Kori says:

    Maybe he’s moving on from the blondes, finally? :)

    She’s a very pretty girl–a former Miss Edinburgh–and in a non-flashy or non-trashy way. She went to a private university and did very well. She later earned a First Class honours degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Loughborough University, before becoming an assistant manager at fashion chain Abercrombie & Fitch. Her current work with The Halo Trust involves acting as a project officer in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

    Looks and brains? And a Scottish accent? Pounce, Harry!

    • Francis says:

      I doubt they even have had real dates. I’m not buying it’s anything more than a booty call or two if that.

  18. Dany says:

    Why can´t he go for a girl named Sally? A name with S would be enough to give her the nickname ;)

    Don´t think the girl and Harry are a couple. She´s a pretty girl and works for a charity he´s involved. That´s likely the only connection between them. Most stories about “his girls” are made up.

    I think he´ll go solo for a while and in a few yearss he will settle down with a fun loving blonde (gorgeous ginger babies more likely :D ). I hope she´s a stunner with a job and already involved in charity work. The other european Princes were that smart. William failed, so it´s Harry´s turn.

    • Chris says:

      I’d like us to have a real playboy prince… h*ll with marrying him off!
      A lifelong bachelor, managing to stride through years of fascinating amours whilst retaining public admiration through energetic Good Works, such as he presently does so well.
      He could also, just to make a fantasy come true, maintain a pied a terre in Albany, Piccadilly, as a base for his very hush-hush sleuthing, possibly with a super-capable man-servant played by Dominic West.

  19. OTHER RENEE says:

    I never saw him marrying the very immature Cressida. I’ll never understand why everyone thought she was The One.

    • Chris says:

      A prurient fascination with *her* family helped keep her newsworthy too…. blimey, those toffs go in for ‘breeding’ in a very big way! (Her half-brother, called (approximately) ‘Jupiter Altogether-Coughdrop-Ponsonby-Thynne’, would have had royal heralds demanding additional shift premiums at palace balls and dinners. They thought all that tongue-twisting surname business had died off when the royals opted for ‘Windsor’!!)

    • Francis says:

      Harry’s not marrying anyone, anytime soon and that includes this current summer bootycall ,former pageant Queen.

      • wow says:

        I agree.

        Also, I’m not seeing anything to back up the “pretty” and “gorgeous” descriptions of this girl. Yes, the whole “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” blah, blah, blah, but she looks like an average cute girl to me. There are other pictures of her floating around and she comes across as a typical party girl…the same type of pictures and activities that his ex girlfriend was raked over the coals and criticized for. Not sure why this one gets a “pass”.

  20. Isabelle says:

    Think when he does finally tie it down, it will be too a strong women that works. He seems to not go for the prissy & princess type. Always find it ironic that womanizers tend to marry really strong & independent women & a lot of them do.

    • Chris says:

      I give you Lord Peter Wimsey and Harriet Vane as an example of that! (Isn’t this what Mr Clooney’s doing?)

  21. Caitlin Bruce says:

    I’m from Edinburgh and it’s a great place to be in August for the Festival. But the weather has been so great June/July and as soon as we are in August it’s a down pour. Can’t help but feel for all the tourist epically today as we gave tge tail end of that hurricane. As far Harry getting it on with a Scottish girl, that will never drown out the independence referdeum that’s happening in September and nor should it. A royals private life so have no bearing in a huge decision to do what’s best for Scotland.

  22. Hissyfit says:

    He’s always “getting serious” in the beginning of his every relationship. Lol.

  23. wow says:

    She’s the rebound girl. I doubt Harry is seriously looking to settle down. If he were, then he would have locked that Cressida girl down. He seems to be playing it smart by dating around and not being bullied down the aisle to marry. This recent one won’t make the cut either, but at least there is someone new in the picture to talk about.
