Cressida Bonas gets muddy at Glastonbury, parties with 22-year-old Will Poulter


Remember how sources said, just prior to Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry’s breakup, that Cressy is just too much of a free spirit, and she’s the kind of girl who would prefer going to Burning Man rather than be a royal bride? Well, that assessment was seemingly dead-on. Here are some photos of Cressida at Glastonbury Music Festival – in some of the photos she’s carrying a backpack, and I would assume she’s camping out and living that particularly weird “elite boho” lifestyle afforded to heiresses and aristocrats. “Look, darling! Mud! How delightfully peasanty!”

Maybe I’m just mad. Last year’s Glastonbury Music Festival had a very special attendee: Benedict Cumberbatch. Cumby wore scarves, flip-flops and ugly hats. It was magnificent. But he’s working now, so no Cumby in Glastonbury. We have to make due with Cressida. I have to hand it to her though – she still looks incredible with no makeup and messy hair, stuffing her face with beer, pizza and ketchup-drenched chips. Maybe I’m showing my age, but I bet the pizza there is nasty.

The UK papers say that Cressida was flirting with actor Will Poulter, best known to me as “the fake son” in We’re the Millers. He’s a 22-year-old English actor who can do a pretty good American accent. Sources said: “Loads of people wanted to get chatting to her, but she spent most of the night chatting to Will. They really hit it off. They’ve got lots of mutual friends from London and the conversation was clearly flowing freely. Cressida barely stopped grinning all evening.”

Anyway, Cressida is fine, it seems. She didn’t get her prince but she did get to keep her free-spirited boho lifestyle. She gets plum acting jobs and time off from her job to attend music festivals. She’ll probably end up married to one of Harry’s friends. And will he regret letting her go? I don’t know. I think he saves his regrets for Chelsy Davy. I think he was probably happy to let Cressida the drama queen go. She either tried to play him and failed miserably, or she never wanted to marry him in the first place.

    Much better PR for her than stories about how she’s desperately trying to get him back.

    She looks happy and gorgeous, good for her.

  2. Eleonor says:

    I disagree with the “incredible without makeup”, I think she looks normal, cute but normal.
    There are tons of prettier girls without makeup.

  3. Abbott says:

    Is she trying to make Harry jealous with the Will story? Honest speculation.

  4. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Wow, she looks beautiful and happy. I think this breakup was for the best on both sides.

  5. Talie says:

    Her family wanted a ring on it more than she did, I suspect.

  6. Dany says:

    she looks so real and happy in all pictures from glastonbury.

    And i don´t know who her male friend here is… but hello pretty guy :D

  7. Jegede says:


    I though she was shy and unassuming?

    I though she hated media attention?

    I thought people taking pictures with their camera phones were a burden to her sensibilites?

    We’ve seen and heard more from her and her fam in pics and articles here in London since the break up than before
    (well mostly in their go to the Daily Mail to be fair)

  8. LAK says:

    well…if i’m to be mischievous for a moment, for the conspiracy theorists who believe Cressida is playing a boho version of Kate’s game of ‘how to win your prince back’, please note that the guy in the 3rd photo is none other than Skippy, Harry’s best friend!!

  9. GlimmerBunny says:

    I’m SO jealous of her, I’ve wanted to go to Glastonbury all my life! I’ve only been to daytime festivals like Stereosonic (which was AWESOME), Flow and Summerburst but I’d love to go to a “real” festival with camping and mud like Glasto or Roskilde :(

    How does one manage wearing white overall shorts at a muddy festival? I can’t even imagine navigating a wet port-a-potty in one of those and not getting it all stained.

  11. Megan says:

    Boo! I want Cumby in scarves.

  12. Liz says:

    She’s does look really beautiful and especially in that profile shot. I don’t think she was a drama queen at all. This girl has options and she developed cold feet over the stifling role of a royal.

  13. Francis says:

    She’s very pretty naturally . IMO
    She seems very sweet, just enjoying her life.
    Skippy is Harry’s friend. The other guy, the actor dude was chatting with her. Just simple fun.
    The press will make it out to be more of course.
    It’s good she’s doing what she likes to do and not a stepford like someone else became.
    I really like her. She just seems so natural.

  14. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    Ah nothing like a good shag whilst wearing the wellingtons.

    “She either tried to play him and failed miserably, or she never wanted to marry him in the first place.” — That quote sums it up perfectly. I just never understood the relationship. I mean, it’s not for me to understand, so I don’t mean to sound egotistical. It’s just that I didn’t see why it lasted for SO long. The BRF never seemed like “her thing” and why would Harry waste his time trying to convince any girl otherwise. Actually, now that I’m typing this, perhaps, this was just a good friendship that was used to raise her profile. It makes sense as to why they weren’t very… “couply”. The majority of their *public* relationship was just them hanging out with a group of friends at events and *never* being pictured together. I couldn’t imagine really being into someone and stopping myself from hugging them, holding their hand, or you know… talking with them.

    I wish I wasn’t too old for braids. But more important – Bradley Cooper and Fassy were there for Metallica! We need more pictures! (Please)

  17. Kelly says:

    She was always just a rebound for Harry. He never seemed that into it.

  18. miriam says:

    How do people even recognise her? She has such a non-descript and forgettable face. I doubt I would be able to pick her out of a lineup.

  19. Aurelia says:

    Nah, I too am really getting the boho version of waity kates master plan of trying to win a prince back after she was dumped for being a cling-on. Cressida is posing too hard and getting out and about too much at the moment for me to think otherwise. Like kate “who hated the media” until she needed to use them for her own ends – getting papped whilst out with the spray tan on in short short dresses, tacky boots on the lash with the orange sister.
