Kate Middleton Advises Cressida Bonas On How To Stay Normal

With engagement rumours rife the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, has been dishing out advice to Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

According to reports, Harry and Cressy have been talking about marriage as of late and pondering on the changes they're going to have to make in their public and personal lives.

"The couple have decided to try and keep their semi normal lifestyle as long as possible," an insider told E! News.

"Up until now Cressida has loved the fact they can have a lot of freedom in public, they don't hit the headlines when they go to dinner and they can enjoy their relative anonymity around Chelsea," the source added.

"But they are fully aware once they decide to proceed to marriage things will get a little crazy and the attention on them will increase. So it's very much a 'let's enjoy this while it lasts' before they move forwards."

While we're not entirely convinced PH and CB are living a "semi normal" life right about now, K-Middy has apparently been on hand to help keep Cressy grounded.

Kate has been "super helpful" in advising Cressida. "Kate's been brilliant with Cressida and has been giving her advice.

"She likes her very much and has offered her tips on how to keep her normality. Kate's been there and done it and, while she knows Cressida won't be as talked about and followed like she was, she needs to get a real slant on what happens."
