Prince Harry Splits With Cressida Bonas

Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas have parted, according to a source close to the couple.

The couple, who began dating in 2012, ended their relationship amicably, the source told the Press Association.

"It's very, very sad that they have decided to split.

"It's very amicable but they have decided to go their separate ways," the source said.

It is believed one of the reasons for the split was to enable Cressida, who completed a one year contemporary dance course at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire in Greenwich last year, to concentrate on her marketing career.

Cressida joined Prince Harry at a We Day UK charity event at Wembley Arena in March - the first time she had attended one of his official engagements.

Kensington Palace has declined to comment on the split.

The pair, who went skiing together in Kazakhstan in March, are thought to have been introduced by Princess Eugenie - one of Cressida's friends.

They reportedly got together at The Valley festival on mutual friend Arthur Landon's Hampshire estate. They also went on holiday together on Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island in 2012.

It is thought she disliked the attention she faced while dating a member of the royal family as rumours of a possible engagement escalated.

Cressida is the daughter of Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas and Sixties "It girl" Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon.

Prince Harry previously had a long-term relationship with Chelsy Davy while he was training in the Army and overseas.
