Cressida Bonas and Princess Eugenie at the wedding of Lady Melissa Percy and Thomas van Straubenzee - 22 Jun 2013
Cressida Bonas is dating one of the most eligible men in the world, Prince Harry, so who is this young woman who has captured the Prince’s heart? Let us give you a quick Cressida fact file.
Cressida and Harry reportedly first got together after being introduced by his cousin, and her friend, Eugenie. Before the Prince she went out with a man named Harry Wentworth-Stanley. His father is the Queen’s cousin, don’t you know. Cressy (that's her nickname) currently studies dance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, and previously studied at Leeds University like Harry's ex Chelsy Davy.
So what about her signature style? Cressida gives the impression of a very laid-back attitude to fashion – Princess Cool, if you like. It has been said that Cressida's style is very 'gap yah' as she wears plaid shirts, scruffy jeans, multiple wristbands and necklaces, hair artfully tousled. Cressida’s even been known to favour a velvet scrunchie.
She fit right in at Glastonbury in denim dungarees and neon sunglasses, but she can also brush up for a society wedding with the best of them. Expect to see her in a sequin blazer or colourful striped maxi rather than nude heels and fascinators. ’She’s like a female version of Harry,’ said a mutual pal. ‘When the occasion demands it, they look impeccable. But left to their own devices, their look is as relaxed as their personalities.'
