The pair, who were together for two years, were widely tipped to walk down the aisle.

But Cressida is said to have wanted to focus on her career and disliked the attention she faced while dating a royal.

Described in the press as a “blue-blooded butterfly”, Cressida is the daughter of renowned Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas and Sixties It girl Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon.


Rumours that free-spirited actress and dancer Cressida was “the one” for Harry gathered pace in March 2014 when she joined the prince at one of his official engagements for the first time.

But they split up in April 2014, saying they remained “the best of friends”.

Cressida was invited to Harry and Meghan’s wedding in Windsor Castle last year.

He rowed across the Atlantic with three friends in 2016, raising £600,000 to help build the UK’s first centre outside of a clinic or hospital designed to help suicidal men by giving counselling and therapy.

James’ Place in Liverpool was officially opened by the Duke of Cambridge last year.

Harry is odds-on to attend the wedding, according to bookmakers Ladbrokes, who are setting the likelihood at 5/6.

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Prince Harry and Cressida have remained good friends since their break-up and we reckon the royal will make an appearance at his ex’s big day, whenever that may be.”
