Four Things You Need to Know About Prince Harry’s New Lady, Cressida BonasSep 4, 2013 @ 4:12 pm
It’s official ladies, Prince Harry is off the market! His girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, landed the cover of Britain’s Tatler magazine for the October 2013 issue with the headline reading ‘Harry Loves Cressy’ (sigh), making their relationship status official. This is a first cover for Bonas and she is in good company as Kate and Pippa Middleton also had their own Tatler covers as well! Rumors of the couple’s courtship started back in 2012 when Prince Harry took Bonas to the movie premiere of Batman: The Dark Knight Rises followed by hitting the slopes together in Switzerland and taking in music performances at the Glastonbury festival. We can assume that we’ll be seeing more of the 24-year old, all with the upcoming baptism of little Prince George, so we rounded up 4 facts that you should know about Bonas.
