As you may have noticed, we love everything about Ms Cressida Bonas as Prince Harry's girlfriend has won over our hearts with her effortless style. We can expect to see lots more of Cress, as she has just made her first official appearance with Hazza at the UK's first We Day today. In case you aren't too familiar with the pretty 24-year-old dancer in question, here's top 10 need to know facts about her.
Dressed in skinny Koral Jeans and sequined silver Converse trainers (which have gone right to the top of our wishlist), Cressida joined 12,000 screaming school children at Wembley Arena for the North American-led charity programme. We’ve long had our eye on Cressida ever since we spied her in the fields of Glastonbury last summer where she rocked denim dungarees and a pair of coloured mirrored sunnies.
Although it goes without saying that we’re huge fans of Kate Middleton’s uber-glam, polished look, there’s just something about Cressy’s laid-back, tousled locks and attire that we think is just pretty darn cool. Cressida is so infrequently spotted out and about, so we get rather excited when we get to see more of her signature style. This morning Cress wore a bright red shirt under a black slogan sweater (loving that combo!), black skinny jeans and statement sequin silver Converse trainers. Topped off with a black leather jacket and wind swept hair, the former dancer did not disappoint.

At the event Prince Harry said to the crowd: 'For those of you expecting Harry Styles, I apologise and, no, I'm no going to sing... I feel extremely privileged, and incredibly nervous, to be standing here in front of you today at the first WE day to be held in the UK. Free The Children is a fantastic organisation, founded on an inspiring principal – that children have the power to effect change.' Malala, the Pakistani schoolgirl turned activist who was nominated for the Nobel peace prize, also was a speaker at the event.
All hail Cressida Bonas, ladies - the queen of the scrunchie, tousled strands and the brushed-up brow! Hurrah!
