Apart from her career as an actor and a model, Cressida has caught the eyes of many from her relationship with Prince Harry.
She is a very good friend of Princess Eugenie of York. The ‘It girl’ was introduced to Prince Harry in May 2012 by her Princess friend.
Cressida and Prince Harry sparked the rumor of dating in June 2012 after they were seen together at the premiere of The Dark Knight Rises.
The pair was all loved up in the first year and there was swirling rumor that Prince was even ready to pop up the question to Cressida. However, the two began making few and far between public appearances. Eventually, they broke up amicably in 2014.
The reason behind the split was stated to be the razzle-dazzle of the royal family. More specifically, ‘money and fame’ became the very reason which became so hard for Cressida to endure.
