There were claims of a royal romance between society beauty Cressida Bonas and the world's most eligible bachelor Prince Harry last Summer, but rather than getting excited about the prospect of being the next Kate Middleton, the leggy blonde is reportedly getting cold feet over her romance with the royal stud.
According to the MailOnline, the 23-year-old is a popular choice for the Prince with his nearest and dearest “rallying round,” her while Harry was in Afghanistan over the last four months in an attempt to draw her closer to his tight knit group. They claim the 28-year-old was keen on a romance with her after meeting last Sumner, but that she's stayed aloof despite his best efforts to woo her while away on tour.
An insider revealed: “The rallying round was at times campaign-like. Cress was even introduced to Prince William once. To say that she felt caught off-guard on that occasion would be a fair assessment. She was desperately nervous about meeting Harry’s older brother.”

While many families would be pretty excited about a possible union with royalty, Cressida's family are said to be putting “zero” pressure on her.
“When Cressida’s mother was first visited by reporters early in the summer, she was in hysterics,” the friend explained. “She finds it all very funny. While many parents would be pushing their daughters to pursue the relationship, Mary is putting zero pressure on her daughter.”
That's Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, daughter of the 6th Earl Howe and a Sixties It girl, a perfect candidate for a royal mother in law.
The couple reportedly first got together at The Valley festival, in Hampshire at a friend's country estate, the prince said to be smitten with Cressida's “uninhibited, floaty, hippy” style, though things reportedly turned sour when Harry was caught naked in Las Vegas during a weekend of hard partying.
Could Harry's love of excess put a spanner in the works? The 23-year-old blonde is said to enjoy a more low key social life.
“She hangs out with her brothers and sisters. They are extremely close,” the insider went on.
“She and her friends spend their time going to the Sadler’s Wells dance theatre. Commuting means she gets home late to West London from her dance studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, so she rarely goes out midweek. At weekends, she will go partying or travel to Norfolk to see her dad.”
The prince recently spoke out about speculation over his private life during an inteview with the BBC on his return from duty and claimed most of the things claimed weren't true. So lets hope this is nothing more than speculation.
