Prince Harry & Cressida Bonas are loved up in a Swiss ski chalet right now

Last July, Prince Harry seemed to have gotten himself a new blonde girlfriend. Her name? Cressida Bonas. She comes from a well-connected British family – her sister briefly dated Prince William, and Will was said to be quite smitten. Cressida lives a pretty typical life for a wealthy English girl – she’s like a model/socialite, just looking to land a wealthy guy of her own. Princess Eugenie is said to have initially introduced Harry and Cressida, and they hit it off. Then time passed and Harry showed the royal jewels in Vegas and then he went to Afghanistan, and there were mixed reports about the state of Harry and Cressida’s relationship, everything from her dumping him to him being hung up on Chelsy, etc. Anyway, Cressida is BACK!! She and Harry were spotted at Swiss ski resort – you can see the photos here.

High above the Swiss snowline, the temperature is rising. Locked in a tight embrace on the slopes of the Verbier ski resort yesterday, Prince Harry and his society girlfriend Cressida Bonas seem to be closer than ever. The very public display of affection, in front of dozens of fellow skiers, came only a few hours after even more intimate revelries at a restaurant in the town. Fellow diners in the wee small hours at the Pot Luck Club restaurant in the resort’s Farinet Hotel were entertained by the sight of the Prince bouncing the 24-year-old blonde model and would-be actress on his knee.

The pair were said to have ‘kissed like love-struck teenagers in the back of a cinema’.

The other end of the same table was an altogether more sober affair. Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, whose 53rd birthday on Tuesday they were celebrating, sat with his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, and their two daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie. Eugenie’s boyfriend, Jack Brooksbank, briefly strolled over chatted to Harry and Cressida. But for the most part they had eyes only for each other. The Yorks traditionally enjoy a week’s skiing in the resort every year to mark Prince Andrew’s birthday, often inviting photographers to capture the event. This time, perhaps not unsurprisingly, the invitation was not extended.

Shortly before midnight, Miss Bonas, who wore a minuscule black dress and heels, showing off a pair of endless legs, stood up and walked over to sit on Harry’s lap. The pair then began to kiss, with Harry stroking the back of her head as they did so, in a passionate clinch for several minutes.

A witness said: ‘We couldn’t believe what we were seeing. They were not being discreet about it. The Duchess of York and Eugenie sat just a few seats away at the time and seemed to be deliberately looking the other way, making polite conversation while it was happening. Afterwards, Harry’s girl stayed sitting on his knee while they chatted to his friends.’

The diner went on to reveal: ‘At one point, a waiter brought over a tray of vodka and Red Bull and Harry shouted: “Free drinks on the house!” Everyone seemed to be having a great time.’

Although Prince Andrew left shortly afterwards, the younger royals went on to an exclusive bar above the restaurant, before moving to a basement nightclub, where they stayed until 3.30am. Despite the late night, however, Harry and Cressida still hit the slopes yesterday morning and were again seen openly hugging and kissing on the slopes, which were packed with half-term visitors. Both appeared to be extremely competent skiers and spent most of the day on the mountain. At one point, taking a break from their fun, Harry was seen putting his arms around Cressida’s waist while she rested her head on his shoulder.

The daughter of renowned Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas and Sixties model Lady Mary Curzon — who posed semi-naked for a coffee table photographic book and went on to get married and divorced four times — Cressida is a familiar figure in London’s upper-class social scene. As a teenager, she was labelled by society bible Tatler as ‘really pretty, really nice and absolutely obsessed with Eva Cassidy (the late American singer)’.

Last year she and Harry flew together to the Caribbean island of Necker for the birthday of tycoon Sir Richard Branson’s son Sam, who is engaged to be married to Miss Bonas’s beautiful half- sister, the actress Isabella Anstuther-Gough-Calthorpe.

This week’s ski holiday, to which the Prince had flown on budget airline easyJet, is significant in royal terms for more than one reason. It is the first time in many, many years that Harry has been seen in public with the snubbed Duke of York’s ex-wife.

[From The Mail]

Can I just say? I think the Duke of York is probably a major ass in general, but I still kind of love that he and Fergie still spend so much together. She’s crazy, no doubt, but I like that Andrew and Fergie’s relationship – even post-divorce – has always been solid and loving. Anyway, as for Cressida and Harry… we’ll see. I think Cressida seems like she’s in to win it. She’s well-connected, she doesn’t have a lot going on, and Harry seems to like her. It will be interesting to see how she plays it from here. Also: her family will make Duchess Kate very uncomfortable. Kate is said to have been very jealous of William’s relationship with Isabella Anstuther-Gough-Calthorpe.

    I didn’t even read this but he looks damn good in fatigues.

    Hardy AND Harry? It is a good day on C/B, indeed.

  2. Macey says:

    I dont see this one lasting. Dlisted has a cute pic of them snuggling but I just dont see it long term. I really cant imagine him settling down any time soon, he just doesnt seem the type to get into long term relationships except for Chelsey. I think I like her best out of all the girls he’s been seen with.

    • LAK says:

      The man is only 28. He was with Chelsy for 7yrs from ages 18-25. He has had less than a handful of long term relationships.How much more long term do you want him to be?

      Or do you believe all the stories that he is dating every girl he talks or stands next to??!!!

    • Liz says:

      I agree, he’s already cheated on this girl in Vegas. How special can she really be? At best he didn’t think he had anything to loose when he decided to invite 15 strange girls to his room and get naked with them.

      • bluhare says:

        I don’t think there were any reports of Harry actually having sex with anyone in Vegas. Am I wrong?

      • Liz says:

        @bluhare, You’re right, there were no reports of him having sex with anyone. The statement was made based on my overly puritanical views that a naked man groping at a naked woman while in a relationship with someone else is still cheating.

      • LAK says:

        oh Liz, There was no groping. no kissing, no sex. That girl who talked to the press about it said as much. The pictures show someone shielding someone else and little Harry

        If you are this puritanical, i suggest you avoid military/rugby types. You’ll give yourself a hernia from all the pearl clutching. I don’t say that to be mean or to judge you. The way these guys let off steam can be pretty shocking to the layman.

        It’s surprising PG despite the nudity. Frankly I’ve seen more shocking things a on a Saturday night out on the town and or at hen parties.

      • bluhare says:

        Liz, I didn’t say anything about your views. I just said he didn’t think he had sex with anyone at the hotel. Just a game of strip billiards. Stupid, maybe, but I don’t call it cheating. Especially as they had just started dating her. For all we know, they weren’t exclusive back then.

      • Me Three says:

        From what I read, the only reason they didn’t have sex is he was so stoned lil Harry just couldn’t rise to the occasion,

        Sorry but while I think he looks like he’d be the most fun of all the Royals, the guy is nothing but a spoiled rotten brat. I doubt he will settle down because why should he? Girls are throwing themselves at him. He doesn’t need to get married. There’s already an heir on his/her way.

        Finally…does Cressy eat? She is seriously thin.

      • Liz says:

        LAK, There were two pics of Harry from that room. The one you are referring to is indeed the milder of the two. The one I was referring to was the one where Harry had his back to the camera and was holding onto the naked girl from behind. There was definite groping in that pic.

        Now, I had no problem with the behavior when the pics came out because I thought he was single, but the new pics of him coming out with Cressida gives weight to the stories that they were dating at the time. I think he has been with her for a while because I don’t think he would jeopardize a new relationship by being so affectionate in public before they had time to develop some feelings for each other.

      • LAK says:

        Liz – I saw both pics. there was no groping. Infact, i’ve double checked to make sure.

        1. Girl’s arms are folded the way you do when you are shielding your breasts.

        2. It’s not very clear where his hands are, but they don’t look like they are around her as they should if he was coping a feel. Look at position of his elbows. They are too far back. it looks like he is holding her elbows.

        3. Look at her feet. one foot is very clearly in front of the other, whilst back foot is semi lifted like she’s moving forward. And they are both facing forward. That means she is sideways with only a part of her body against his body as opposed to full body contact.

        4. Look at the top of the untanned part of her hip which i presume is where the top of her pants/bikini would sit. It is too high for her bottom to be in the right position for what the picture is implying.

        4. And frankly, to put it crudely, given their height differential, both her feet would have to be completely off the ground for little Harry to find the right port.

        And now that i have analysed this picture FURTHER than i have ever wanted to, please take a 2nd look for yourself.

        RE: Cressida. Firstly she is and has been very good friends with Eugenie for years. Harry hangs out with Eugenie and her friends, so there is no reason to think that she was unaware of his behaviour because i doubt this was the first time it happened.

        Further, if you hang around these military/rugby guys, you come to realise that it is meaningless because they do it all the time, and there is NO sexual connotation to it. As Harry himself said, he was acting more army, less prince meaning they all behave that way.

      • Liz says:

        LAK, You’re right. He’s not grabbing her boob and he’s not having sex (which, by the way, I never thought). It looks more like he has his hand on her waist to me. The thing is, he didn’t need to be copping a feel for this to have an extremely sexual element to it. No, it was not sex, but the fact that he go naked in a room full of people and had ANY physical contact with a naked girl is a betrayal of the trust one should expect in a relationship. It also speaks volumes about the amount of respect someone have for the other person.

        About the “army man” argument: I’ve known men in the armed services, and they do not ALL act like this, especially when they have someone special in their lives. Yes, some do, they are mostly the singles and the players.

        Also consider, he was not on vacation with his army buddies. He was with Tom Inskip, Arthur Landon, and Adam Bidwell. They come from upper class backgrounds, a group of people who frequently don’t think the rules apply to them.

        I agree with you fully that Cressida knew what he was like before getting involved with him. What is most disappoint is that it say as much about how she feels about herself and how she thinks she deserves to be treated, and that’s just sad.

  3. Dawn says:

    Oh she is very pretty! He is going to have to settle down one day so let’s hope he does while he still has is looks!

  4. Elceibeno08 says:

    Pretty girl! She’s lucky to enjoy Prince Harry in that personal way.

  5. Bird says:

    He certainly has a type, doesn’t he?

  6. Laura says:

    She looks like a less interesting version of Chelsy. All the royals are boring.

  7. Angelic 20 says:

    The best part of this relationship or whatever it is at the moment is her sister. Man Kate was so jealous, William was smitten and known to dump her to pursue the sister, he doesn’t like Sam Branson Isabella’s finance (he was the only one from Branson family who was not invited to the royal wedding) . If this relationship last there will be plenty drama and I am really looking forward to that. This is probably the most interesting thing to happen to boring William and Kate.

  8. Hannah says:

    Isabella Anstuther-Gough-Calthorpe? That has to be one of the most ridiculous names I’ve ever heard. It sounds like it straight out of a sitcom.

  9. Paula says:

    She looks a lot like Chelsy, only prettier. Man, I still remember how Chelsy looked at the royal wedding. She came as the date of the most eligible bachelor, and she looked so sloppy. Ugh!

    • Angelic 20 says:

      I don’t think she looks like Chelsy at all other then being blonde. She is thinner, more lean, taller, prettier, more put together and refined (looks wise),most probably less intelligent and hard working, have way softer features. I think except the blonde hairs she is actually a prettier version of Kate.

  10. Simmy says:

    Such an improvement over Chelsy!

  11. ashley says:

    I’ve always heard he has a thing for darker women but since they aren’t skin toned approved he has to be seen with women like this cressida.

  12. Dee Cee says:

    Prettier, younger and less looking version of his ex Chelsy

  13. Talie says:

    She’ll probably make it, she seems to be like Kate, putting up with all kinds of crap to get the prize. And let’s be honest, that’s exactly how it has to be in this world.

  14. Mary says:

    Good for him. Alot of soldiers come back from Afghanistan with PTSD, so I am glad he is blowing off some steam and enjoying himself. My only wish for prince ginge is that he doesn’t marry an aristo.

    I can’t decide if prince andrew and fergie on vacay together is disfunctional or healthy!? My parents had a bitter divorce so my judgement is clouded.

    • garvels says:

      I am not a big fan of Prince Andrew and Fergie but they did a pretty good job in raising their daughters. Both daughters graduated University and they both are actually employed in real jobs. They also do charity work on the side.

      I also find it interesting that Harry vacationed with his current gal pal and the York family…..where is Charles and William Middleton? I find it sad at how the Middletons have monopolized William’s vacation time. It looks to me like they are trying to squeeze out the younger brother. I am sorry but the Middleton family really bug me.

      • LAK says:

        Harry hangs out with the York girls a lot. He has also been on afew skiing holidays with them. Cressida is very good friends with Eugenie (has been for years) and has gone on the Yorks’ skiing holidays a few times too. Since they all hang out together, it’s not wierd that they are on holiday together. It’s all the same crowd of family/friends.

        William rarely spends time with his family, preferring to spend his time either with the Middletons or his usual circle of friends. That’s why the christmas holiday was so sad in many ways. He has exiled himself from his own family and has to be bribed to spend time with them.

      • Me Three says:

        Not a fan of any of them except for maybe the queen. And, frankly I can’t blame William for not wanting to spend a whole lot of time with his family. Would you?

      • LAK says:

        Me Three – Rather his family than one that only loves him for his status.

  15. Elly says:

    William was in love with her sister… look at her!

    here is Isabella:
    http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2007/04/15/va1237242539329/isabella-5449439.jpg

    too beautiful for Baldy Middleton.

  16. Reece says:

    I remember her! She had the fun famly connections. haha But wait…She doesn’t have a lot going on? She’s not a blonde Waity with an aristo father is she??? Oh Harry! smh
    Maybe he’s just making up(out) for lost time in Afghanistan. ;)

  17. LAK says:

    Goodness the charles/philip face is so strong in that first pic. And strong philip face in the santa picture.

    As much as we fear the windsor gene, I’m so glad the mountbatten gene is so strong in him because it puts those pesky rumours to rest.

  18. taxi says:

    Diana’s gene pool did bring in chins for her sons.

  19. gogoGorilla says:

    I don’t even read the posts on him, just look at the pictures. Which I know is very, very wrong since he is just a little older than my kid, but damn! He is fine. I’m sure eventually he’ll marry someone imminently suitable, have affairs, etc., etc.

  20. dasha says:

    Rail thin and barely there, oh yes she will be the next princess.

  21. KellyinSeattle says:

    I think I’m the only one who doesn’t find him hot AT ALL….anyway, the royals will make sure he marries soon, I think….before he’s 30.

  22. Alexandra Bananarama says:

    I hope they last. She comes from a good family. Not the new money type. I say that more as old money has settled and doesn’t need to show off.

    Even though she doesn’t have too much happening I bet she would do well with the RF. Charity events, public speaking, looking pretty, and no super embarrassing missteps.

    And i love Eugenie! If she likes her the girl is probably ok.

  23. bluhare says:

    Apparently, the media only have photos of Cressida in that godawful white dress and shoes. So unflattering. I think she’s actually prettier than this?

    Although add me to the “wish he and Chelsy would get back together club”. Don’t know why. Just that they seemed to really like each other.

  24. phaksi says:

    I was heartbroken when I first heard about this. I thought Id have a chance with him when he comes to South Africa :( . At least Waity has competition now

  25. greta says:

    This girl and her sister are clearly much better looking than Kate, that’s for sure. Can’t speculate on their personalities, but anyone is more interesting and has more depth than Dolittle! Bad choice, PW!!

  26. A says:

    I prefer his cousin Lord Freddie Windsor myself.

  27. Anguishedcorn says:

    I don’t find Chelsey or this new one attractive. In fact, they have the same kind of unattractiveness to me. I know the outside isn’t as important as the inside, bla bla bla.

  28. Laura says:

    I think this girl is pretty…but not in the same league as Kate. Yes, Kate has help with her appearance, but who doesn’t? I just find Kate is better pulled together than Cressida or Chelsy, although Kate would be even more attractive if she actually did some charitable work beyond the bare minimum she has done thus far. But aside from her laziness and apathetic attitude toward those less fortunate, I think she is a very pretty lady with classy clothes.

    I think Harry will likely date a few more blondes before he settles down…and I think he will end up with someone unexpected (ie. not the usual blondes he has been with in the past and seems to currently favour). I think it will be Harry and his wife who will “save” the monarchy and bring it back into the public’s good graces. He seems a lot more relatable and authentic versus William.

  29. GoodCapon says:

    So the UK media decided to print the photographs yet they were scared sh*tless with William and Kate. Talk about double standards for the spare.

    • LAK says:

      You know if this was WK, we’d be discussing privacy yadayada ad naseum. William would be furious and the pics would be on the internet rather than on the front of every paper.

      No one on this thread seems pertubed about this.

      • Angelic 20 says:

        Well I agree with the double standard but it doesn’t apply here because this was public. Last year they published even dm, the France skiing photos of William and Kate so I am guessing skiing was in a public place and hence they published it without any discussion but yes it seems people are only concerned with their privacy and not his. Well let them behave this way, it serves Harry in a good way because this control freak attitude of William will be his downfall with the press.

  30. keri12 says:

    I’m glad to see Harry with someone that he seems to care about; despite all the tab reports, he’s been seen out without a girlfriend since he and Chelsy broke up.
    But why do so many people have selective memories re: Wills and Kate’s skiing photos? Pics of William and Kate skiing have been plastered across front pages of newspapers and tabloids every year since Kate went skiing with Wills for the 1st time in 2004. The yearly pics of Wills, Kate, and groups of friends skiing can easily be found anywhere online, not to mention in the archives of newspapers.

    The most recent pics of Wills and Kate skiing were taken in March/April 2012, they were skiing with a group that included Pippa and George Percy. Why has that suddenly been forgotten? If we compare the twenty-something pics taken of Harry and Cressida to the literally hundreds of pics taken of Wills and Kate skiing over the years, it’s not quite an even situation yet.

  31. Flower says:

    Harry is really looking for a wife he has alluded to it in several interviews in the past two years. He wants a wife and kids to go home to, I think he is desperate to be a father, I just hope he takes his time and gets to know the girl for several years before he pops the question. The trouble with that is any girl/woman with an ounce of sense would run like Chelsey after a year of the paparazzi and tabloids breathing down her neck day and night.

    • Alexandra Bananarama says:

      Flower

      Not everyone will run like Chelsy. I think she had goals and was/is driven. Taking on the role of a public figure would have made it difficult to achieve her goals. It’s sad because I think there was so much genuine love there.

      Cress would be well suited for Harry and the role his wife. She comes from a good, well-established family. She knows how to carry herself with the upper crust, she’s beautiful, her family is settled and would not try to steal the spotlight, and being a model combined with her education she would be good at public speaking.

      I think there’s no hurry for him to get married and he should get to know someone before he does marry them, but he doesn’t have that luxury. Even Will dated Kate on and off for years, but refused to marry her until he reached an age and felt pressure to do so, Not because he was so in love. I hope Harry isn’t backed into that corner. He will be a FANTASTIC father!

  32. molly says:

    Unlike William I think Harry will marry someone who he LOVES and has not been pressurised to marry. If the truth, William is jealous of Harry and the choices he will have before he gets married. William is like his father and I would bet William’s marriage will not last forever because we all know if he had not been pressured into marrying waity katey he would probably have chosen someone completely different and possibly have still be single..

    • bluhare says:

      Not sure about the marriage not lasting forever. If Kate does her duty and produces the heir and spare, as long as she doesn’t embarrass the family, they’ll probably just live their own lives and get together for offical functions. I dont’ think they’ll divorce.

  33. aquarius74 says:

    Cressida, like Chelsey, is a portrait of his mother Diana, except both young girls have long hair. As a second child, Harry should have some issues about that… and he certainly would like his girlfriend to overlook the wife of the future king… just to show older does not mean better. He’s a competitor.
