Cressida Bonas the girlfriend of Prince Harry is not as well known as his sister-in-law Kate Middleton is. Not yet at least. And with all this talk about wedding bells, we thought we could take a closer look at this blonde beauty who has captured the heart of one of the most eligible bachelors in the world.
Cressida Bonas is not like Kate Middleton, and we mean, not at all. Actually, she seems to be the complete opposite of the very normal Kate.
The first difference is that she comes from an aristocratic family. Her mother is Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, a banking heiress who was the daughter of 6th Earl Howe, godson of King Edward VII.
Her daughter Cressida grew up with all the riches the royals enjoy and it shows in her frequent visit to nightclubs, a favorite pastime of the posh in England and also a favorite of her boyfriend.
Cressida Bonas is being called the anti-Kate by some, for her less than elegant wardrobe. While Kate Middleton looks impeccable at all times (remember the photos outside the hospital after giving birth to George?), Harry’s girl, not so much.
She prefers casuals and has more of a bohemian air for her dressing choices. Some are horrified that a scrunchie seems to be her latest fashion accessory. Definitely not Kate.
But Cressy, as friends call her, has never been seen out of control or drunk when she is out on the town. Not that Kate was, but she went through a wild streak, especially after her and Prince William split briefly. However, as soon as she and Wills got serious, she was done with the wild partying.
From all reports, Cressida Bonas is a very nice girl, non pretentious and well liked by her friends.
Harry has made it no secret he is ready to settle down. In an interview withCBS in 2012 he said, “I mean look at me, I’m 27 years old. [I'm] not so much searching for someone to fulfill the role, but obviously, you know, finding someone that would be willing to take it on.”
Ah, the tough life of being a royal Prince. But is Cressida Bonas the Princess Harry needs and is she ready to “take it on”? Only time will tell.
