Cressida Bonas is a British actress who was Prince Harry’s last serious relationship before marrying Meghan Markle. Now, Bonas’s statements have resurfaced, exposing more about why she and Harry split up.
According to the Express, Cressida stated that it was “fear” that kept her from marrying Harry and joining the British royal family.

“Fear of failure, fear of rejection, fear of not getting it right, fear of not being flawless…. I think it has hindered me in some situations in my life,” she continued.
Cressida voiced her relief at their choice to split up last year, which they did so amicably that she attended his 2018 wedding to Meghan.
“I think I’ve gotten confidence, and fortunately, I’ve learned not to sweat the minor stuff,” she stated in 2020. “I just think it’s given me a better sense of purpose and a deeper sense of what I want or don’t want.”
She would have been a lot better for Harry, but the “royal life” would have eaten her alive…
Cressida went on to remark that she believed she would always be regarded as a “it girl” because of her relationship with Harry, but she is now hopeful that people will recognize her more for her work in the acting field.
“I believe terms like that are quite narrow-minded,” she stated. “I think I work very, very hard, I love what I do, and I just hope that this role has showed people what I am capable of and what I would like to accomplish in the future without being limited in any way.”
Cressida was finally breaking it in the acting industry until COVID-19 shut everything down, but she remains optimistic about the future.
“It is one of those things, really, and I just hope that when it does reopen, I will be able to continue doing it because it is what I enjoy doing,” she added.
This comes as royal expert Julie Montagu, Viscountess Hinchingbrooke, stated that Harry and Meghan’s departure from the royal family is the “exact same reason” why he parted up with his previous two lovers, Cressida and Chelsy Davy. Harry previously described the period between the ages of 28 and 32 as a “nightmare moment” for him because of his concern about the press and royal obligations, which overlap.
