Cressida Bonas is invited to the christening of Kate Middleton's son Prince George but is reportedly not going to attend the event due to nerves.
The 24-year-old girlfriend of Prince Harry is "nervous" according to The Mail so she is unsure whether she will be attending the St James's Palace event or not. There is no confirmation yet but the model and socialite is reportedly leaning more on not going instead of attending Prince George's christening.
Cressida Bonas is apprehensive about being in the spotlight, reports say but if the socialite decides to attend, it would be the first time that she will be joining the Queen and other royals.
A source of The Mail said Cressida Bonas is "very very nervous" but her boyfriend Prince Harry wants her to be there. Harry, 29 has reportedly reassured Cressida Bonas that the affair will be private and intimate.
Despite their attempts to evade the limelight, the relationship of Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry has been getting major press coverage. Rumours of Prince Harry proposing marriage to Bonas has hit the newsstands in the past weeks.
Kate Middleton's sister Pippa and their brother James will be present during the christening, sources say.
Close pals of Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry claim that the two are ready to tie the knot but rumours about Kate Middleton not wanting Bonas in the family started swirling online. With Bonas invited to Prince George's christening on Wednesday, fans of the royals are now asking if Cressy's invitation is a message from the palace that they are welcoming the 24-year-old into their fold.
Kate Middleton reportedly did not like Bonas because she is related to Isabella Calthorpe, a woman that her husband was rumoured to have pursued in 2004 and in 2007.
Cressida Bonas is "shy" according to close friends of the aristocrat and will likely not attend the christening of her boyfriend's nephew.
Bonas and Prince Harry started dating in 2012 after Cressy was introduced to Harry by his cousin Princess Eugenie.
