Harry, 28, and Cressida, or “Cressie” as she’s known to friends, were spotted on vacation at the posh Swiss ski resort of Verbier. And, it was a family occasion.
Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, was celebrating his 53rd birthday at the resort. It was a rare occasion because ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, who has officially been shunned by the Palace, was there along with daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
Whether Harry gets scolded by the palace for associating with Fergie remains to be seen. But Cressie fit right in. She was schooled at the exclusive Leeds University and dated Harry Wentworth-Stanley, son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven, according to London’s Daily Mail.
Her mother is Lady Mary-Gaye Georgiana Lorna Curzon (yes, she’s been married four times). She has a half-sister, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, who is an actress. She’s engaged to Sir Richard Branson’s son Sam.
Lady Mary-Gaye, is an heir to the mega-rich Curzon banking family. Jeffrey Bonas studied at Harrow and Oxford before becoming a successful businessman.
During their Swiss vacation, the young couple made no attempt to hide their affection for each other. They were spotted embracing and kissing in public on the slopes and at dinner at the Pot Luck Club restaurant in the resort’s Farinet Hotel, where they were staying.
There were no great royal frills. The royal party could have been any other well-to-do family on vacation. Harry even reportedly flew to the resort on a budget airline.
Princesses Eugenie is reported to be good friends with Bonas and introduced her to the prince. The couple actually began seeing each other last May, but Cressie walked out of the relationship after Harry’s naked Las Vegas romp made all the tabloids.
They have since made up, and claimed to be just good friends until now. Harry says he has matured since the incident. The Vegas vacation was a prelude to a tour in Afghanistan.
