It's safe to say nobody was expecting that kind of announcement.
It’s over between Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas. The pair have ended their relationship, ostensibly because she struggled to deal with the attention of being the girlfriend of the Prince. According to The Telegraph’s unnamed sources, the recent talk of an engagement only added tension to the relationship and in the end, caused the breakup. When Harry and Miss Bonas appeared at an official engagement for the first time together last month, it was taken as a sign that they were increasingly comfortable being seen as a couple.
Miss Bonas reportedly wants to focus on her acting career.
Last month, when the couple attended their first public event together – a We Day charity event at Wembley Arena attended by over 12, 000 people – it was taken as a sign that the two were finally confident enough in their relationship and that an engagement was on the cards. Not so, it turns out.
According to the anonymous insider, Miss Bonas, 25 had always found it difficult to deal with the attention that came from being a princess in waiting. The source also claims that she would like to focus on her career for a while. The fact that a friend of the couple emphasised the fact that Miss Bonas would now be able to concentrate on her career suggests that as well as struggling to cope with so much attention, Miss Bonas never reconciled the fact that she would have to choose between her hopes of a career on the stage and her high-profile relationship.
Not all hope is lost, however. According to one source, the couple haven’t split for good bur are instead taking “a break”, as vague and indefinite as it sounds. Some of the sources cited in the report are less than hopeful, but claim that the split was friendly enough.
The constant media scrutiny finally got tp them.
"It's very sad that they have decided to split but this is a completely amicable separation and they are remaining the very best of friends.”
