Cressida Bonas 'In Training' To Become A Princess

Cressida Bonas is reportedly undergoing some sort of "princess boot camp" to get her ready in anticipation of Prince Harry popping the question before his 30th birthday in September.

Top advisors have been drafted in to advise her on all things royal, from how to behave in public, to how to deal with the media and security.


Cressy's mum is Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon and, as such, she's always moved in high society. But she's well known for being a bit bohemian, which, reportedly, goes against the grain of how a 'proper' princess is expected to behave.

A source told the Daily Star: "The Palace put plans in place as soon as Harry started his Army desk job in London. It was seen as a sure sign things were quickly becoming serious between him and Cressida. Harry now has a new team around him and their role is to advise the couple together.

"Cressida's mum has been tutoring her since she was little, so now the training is going up a level. You could call it princess boot camp."

Another source added that there were raised eyebrows at the palace when she was spotted (gasp in shock and horror) plaiting her hair in public when she went to support Harry at Wembley. He said: "Kate would never be caught doing something so out there."

However, it doesn't really sound that "out-there" to us.

But poor Cressy is being pulled in all directions; as well as receiving 'princess training' from the palace, she's also getting advice from the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton (with whom she's very pally) on completely the opposite: how to stay normal.

We're pretty sure she'll figure it all out for herself along the way.
