The now famous 24-year old Cressida Bonas is in a relationship with Prince Harry but did you know just four years ago, she was an ordinary actress seeking to break into the entertainment business? Will the Queen be thrilled to know about her past?
Bonas was part of the 2009 UK drama series, Trinity; much like the popular Hollywood version of Gossip Girl. In one scene, she is one of the college girls who enter a room packed with men and offer them sexual favours for votes in the student elections. Unfortunately, Trinity ended after only one season.
Harry and Cressida's wedding might be a bit too uncomfortable for their siblings as Prince William and Cressy's sister, Isabella Gough-Calthorpe or Bellie used to have a royal romance. It may be unrequited and one-sided but other reports say Prince William had strong feelings for her while his relationship with Kate was rocky.
While Cressida has a lineage nearly as impressive as the royal family's and already has the social grace of a princess, she can still be awkward and even say, "Cringe de la cringe!" Her raunchy choice of drink is still rum and will have no problem drinking it straight up. Carrie Bradshaw would let out a tiny squeal much to her horror as the future princess brings back scrunchies in different colours! She does not have a problem wearing her favorite clothes in several occasions, much like how the Duchess used to be before her supposed addictive retail therapy started.
Cressy may dress up like a pre-teen but in her defense, it may be because she's too athletic to care. She's landed a sports scholarship in Prior Park College in Bath before transferring to a co-ed boarding school in Stowe, Buckingham. There she had a bedroom window where smokers would sneak into, to fag away. She then went to Leeds University to study dance, and reports say tennis is her game of choice now. Skiing with Prince Harry proves that this is in her wheelhouse as well.
She hasn't always been attracted to gingers. She used to date a towering blonde hottie -- Harry Wentworth-Stanley, the son of Nick Wentworth-Stanley and Clare, the Marchioness of Milford Haven. Harry's stepfather is a cousin to the Queen, according to The Mirror. Cressida started seeing Harry in May 2012 but was turned off when the Prince's naked photos in Vegas went around.
Cressida's mum, Lady Mary-Gaye Georgiana Lorna Curzon is an heir to the wealthy Curzon banking family and was a British "It" girl in the 1960s. Her father, Jeffrey Bonas, is an accomplished Oxford graduate entrepreneur. Cressy's parents are divorced though. Her bestfriend, Princess Eugenie was the one who introduced Harry and Cressy in May 2012.
