The 26-year-old actress and close friends he joined the party in a private room in a pub. Tuesday night they met, just hours after The Sun revealed Cressida had separated from her boyfriend actor. Our exclusive photographs are the clearest indication that the couple wants to give their relationship another chance, as we had previously reported.

Bearded Harry party with about 20 friends at the Cross Keys pub in Chelsea, west London.

In 2012, Bonas was introduced to Prince Harry by Princess Eugenie. The Prince reportedly fell for her as soon as they met. The following year, her friends allegedly told sources that the two were bound to get engaged, and that “a wedding is very much in the cards.”
However, their romance came to an end in 2014, through a reported amicable breakup. Though the exact reason for their split was not given, a source stated, “Cressie is only 25 and pretty young for her age at that. Prince Harry will be 30 this year and is at a different stage in his life. He is incredibly fond of Cressie and understands that she wants to do something with her life and with her career before she considers settling down. It wouldn’t surprise me in the slightest if they got back together in a few months time.”
Other sources actually cited “money” and “fame” as being factors for their going their separate ways. According to the Daily Mail, it was a flight that Bonas was unsure of paying for, to a wedding of one of Harry’s friends in the U.S. She was to pay her own way for the flight, which she could just barely afford, and was unsure about spending the money on a flight to attend a wedding together, with the fate of their relationship looming. According to a close friend of Bonas’, “The widespread opinion that she is a wealthy heiress is complete rubbish, so it was quite a stretch to go to Guy Pelly’s wedding. Guy is not a close friend of hers so there would have been no point in going if she and Harry were splitting up.”
There were also other factors that reportedly added to Bonas’ increasing unhappiness and the paparazzi was relentless. She reportedly made a $20,000 salary and did not want to rely on financial support from her parents, either. According to one of her close friends, “The media has frequently commented on her dress style but it’s very difficult to turn up at so many occasions when you are expected to wear something different each time.” That can certainly get pricey, too!
