Goodness, Prince William is becoming more interesting (gossip-wise) by the day with this Spanish-hunting-trip-on-the-eve-of-his-wildlife-conference thing. Someone snapped a photo of Prince William and Prince Harry at an airport (I can see the wheels of a plane in the background) either coming or going to their hunting trip in Spain. They are with some male friends (including Guy Pelly? Is that him standing next to Harry?), and none other than William’s old girlfriend, Jecca Craig.
Why the f— was Jecca Craig on this trip? Is she dating one of the guys on the trip? Is she married? She was engaged at some point and called off the wedding in 2009 (which I’ve learned via a Google search). But, if she were there because she’s dating one of the guys, then why wasn’t Cressida there, why not Kate, why not any of the other’s guy’s ladies? If it were a straight up boy’s weekend, which would explain lack of other ladies, then Jecca shouldn’t have been there at all. The only reason I can see for her being there is that she’s banging William on the DL and William thought this trip was a great opportunity for them to be together for a weekend without anyone finding out. Unfortunately for them (but fortunately for us ;)) a pap took a photo and now the news is out. I guess there could be other reasons she was there, but the “they’re totally banging” angle is more fun to speculate on.
Interestingly enough, I Googled “Jecca Craig” and the fifth link down is a Yahoo Answers question asking, “Is Jecca Craig the new Camilla and Kate the new Diana?” LOL.
Now, to be fair, I have a male friend and we are really close (he’s the person I talk to most, and after his girlfriend, I’m probably the person he talks to most), and our relationship is purely platonic. So I know it can happen. However, I tend to think my friend and I are the exception and not the rule—going by what I’ve seen and what other people have told me. Also, my friend and I never dated, and never were “mock engaged” like William and Jecca. Maybe William and Jecca are just two old friends who get along really well and care for each other as friends and are not engaging in a physical relationship… or they could totally be banging.
I know from personal experience that a man and a woman can be just friends if they choose to be, and I would hope that I would trust my partner enough to leave him alone with an old flame without anything happening, BUT I would give a hard side-eye if my partner wanted to spend a weekend with an old flame and without me, and without any other women on the trip (which really calls into question why the old flame was there to begin with). Especially if he didn’t tell me about it beforehand. I wonder if Kate knew Jecca would be on the trip. My guess is that William didn’t tell Kate about Jecca, but if Jecca is William’s Camilla, then Kate probably assumed Jecca would be there.
Honestly, for Jecca’s sake, I hope she’s not banging a married man, even if he is a prince, but my guess is they probably are.
So question time: Is Jecca Craig William’s Camilla? Is Camilla always and forever going to be the Royal Standard go-to for name-checking royal mistresses? Is Jecca’s appearance on William’s “boy’s hunting trip” going to get major play in the press? Or is the Kate appearance later today going to drive the bad press William has been getting away with her wonder powers?
What excellent timing for this Jecca story to come out… the day Kate makes a gala appearance. I bet the palace’s PR is jumping for joy at that.
