Prince Harry is currently in the Antarctic having completed his arduous 200 mile trek to the South Pole last Friday, for Walking With The Wounded. He's expected to return to the UK next Monday, Dec 23 when he'll be heading to Sandringham to spend Christmas with the royals, so when exactly will he find time for girlfriend Cressisa Bonas?
The couple have been together for 18 months now and after spending last Christmas apart, while Harry was serving in Afghanistan as an Apache helicopter pilot, it looks like they're facing another split over the festive period.
We're sure Harry will be able to fit in a quick get-together with Cressy before heading to Norfolk with the rest of the royal clan, with enough time to swap presents, but it's not exactly the quality time we're sure the lovebirds need after time apart.

The Prince may well whisk Cressida off for a holiday on the slopes once his family commitments are through. The couple took their romance public in February this year when they were caught smooching during a holiday to Verbier, reportedly to celebrate the socialite's 24th birthday.
During the holiday the loved up pair were reportedly very cosy during a dinner for Prince Andrew, to celebrate Harry's uncle's 50th birthday.
“It was clear they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. One minute they were sat at the table with Andrew, Fergie and their daughters, the next they were acting like teenagers in a darkened cinema,” an eye-witness told The Sun.

“They were very affectionate with each other. Cressida was wearing a little black dress and she climbed on to Harry’s knee. He started softly rubbing her hair, then they began kissing."
They went on: “It was quite passionate — much more than a peck on the lips.”
The couple are said to be super serious - we wonder if the royal will be popping the question on the slopes next year?
