Cressida Bonas has preiously starred on the cover of Tatler, introducing herself as the royal’s one and only. However, now she appears on the magazine’s October 2013 issue with a headline that reads “Harry Loves Cressy.“
The roal prinсe invited the beauty to the Batman: The Dark Knight Rises premier last summer, thus, giving way to speculations and rumors.
A few months later the couple were spotted in Switzerland together having fun and enjoying their holidays.
In Ferbruary, Cressida invited Harry to her half–sister’s wedding,which everyone knows is basically one step away from the proverbial “meeting the parents.
The Prince was reported to be keen to accompany Cressida to the wedding because: “Harry and Cressie are at the exciting stage of a relationship where they just want to spend as much time together as possible.”
Things seem to be moving fast, as now the blonde is featured on the cover of Tatler, now introduced to the world as Harry’s girlfriend.
Just to compare, the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, didn’t appear on the prestigious Tatler cover until 2011, eight years after she started dating Prince William.
Bearing in mind the intense press interest in royal love lives, especially in the life of the late Princess Diana, and more recently the Duchess of Cambridge, it’s no surprise that Prine Harry shielded his girlfriend from the public gaze for as long as possible.
Which is more, some suggest that his long-term relationship with Chelsy Davy which ended because the beauty wasn’t prepared for a life with a royal could have also played on his mind, The Daily Mail writes.
However, according to the Evening Standard’s royal correspondent, Robert Jobson, the prince’s public demonstration of affection with the blonde are ‘a clear message of intent’s from the royal member.
Cressida’s parents are Sixties It girl Lady Mary Gaye Curzon (whose father was the 6th Earl Howe) and Old Harrovian Jeffrey Bonas (her mother’s third husband) is the owner of the well-known fabric company called MacCulloch & Wallis.
The beauty has a number of half brothers and half sisters including Isabella, who was once admired by Prince William, and Gabriella Wilde, a model for Burberry.
After her parents’ split, the girl continued to enjoy a privileged upbringing as her mother soon tied the knot with multi-millionaire Christopher Shaw.
Cressida attended £30,000-a-year Stowe School in Buckingham where she demonstrated numerous skills. She was said to be one of the most popular girls at the sixth form because of “her zest for fun and free spirit.”
“It was non-stop laughter and mischief for two years,” her school friend told reporters. “Our group of girls were all quite different and arty, which is more Cress.”
The 24-year-old later entered Leeds University where she studied for a degree in dance and dated one more royal – Harry Wentworth-Stanley – whose stepfather, George Milford Haven, is a cousin of the Queen.
The blond is fond of dances and she now studies contemporary dance at The Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich.
