The royal is said to have pursued dancer Cressida Bonas for over a year. They finally went public with their romance when they attended the recent wedding of his close friend Thomas van Straubenzee. It seems the relationship has been going from strength to strength.
“She went back to London with Harry on the train [after the wedding] and has been staying at his apartment ever since,” a source revealed to British magazine Grazia. “Harry’s told Cressida he loves her, which is not something he does lightly.
“Now Cressida has finished her dance studies, she can finally concentrate on the relationship. They are totally in love and everyone expect this to run and run.”
Friends believe 28-year-old Harry has finally met his match. Cressida is one of his cousin Princess Eugenie’s best friends so is used to socialising in the same circles as her boyfriend. She also had a privileged upbringing so isn’t overawed by Harry’s wealth and status. The blonde beauty has also made it clear that she wants Harry to be totally committed to her, after raising eyebrows by remaining close friends with his ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
“It was touch and go for a while, but now it’s serious,” a source close to the couple said. “It’s possible Cressida’s been very wary about several things and Chelsy’s been looming over the relationship, casting a shadow. Harry used to call Chelsy regularly and they would often meet up. Some say Cressida and Harry had a row about it and cooled things between them in May, but Princess Eugenie stepped in and played agony aunt to both of them.”
