Who is Cressida Bonas?
This week Prince Harry had decided to part ways after a solid two-year relationship with Cressida Bonas.
And Prince Harry has wasted no time getting back to his single life.
A blue-blooded, blond, leggy former model, Cressida Bonas had all the makings of a princess. But it was not to be.
Born in February 1989, Cressy, as she is known to friends, is the daughter of Jeffrey Bonas and Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon. She has one sister and three half-siblings from her mother’s first marriage.
Cressida Bonas studied dance at the University of Leeds but is also known to have tried her hand at stage acting. She has been pictured frequenting music festivals and is said to love partying on the dance floor.
It’s believed that Princess Eugenie, who is a mutual and close friend to both, was the one to introduce Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry in June 2012.
Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas were first photographed together after the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises in 2012 before hitting clubs and theaters together later that year.
As a couple, Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry were low-key and rarely gave the press a chance to catch them together.
They had a bumpy and sometimes turbulent relationship: Prince Harry was pictured partying in Miami in 2012, which is said to have temporarily put the brakes on their romance. But the pair managed to patch things up and got more serious than ever.
Cressida Bonas is said to have been unhappy at the amount of attention given to her by the press and overwhelmed at the possibility of becoming a royal.
When it was announced, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas split surprised even the most avid royal-watchers.
“Nobody had any idea that this was coming,” Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty magazine, told PEOPLE magazine.
“She was moving into her new flat and getting on with her life. I thought they were very happy together.”
