Has Cressida Bonas Put A Stop To Dancing Career To Become A PA?

Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas has decided to give up her job as a dancer and become a personal assistant - because it's a more suitable career patch for a future princess - according to reports.

The 24-year-old is rumoured to have taken up a PA job at a high-flying firm in London's West End. "Cressida is working as a PA in a West End office for the time being," a pal allegedly told the Mail On Sunday.

"She doesn't want to do anything that will embarrass Prince Harry, I think she felt uncomfortable about photographs being seen of her dancing earlier this year."

Her career change will not only keep her out of the public eye, but will sit better with the royals and their reputation.

It has been suggested, royal courtiers did not think the title "dancer" was a suitable one for a possible future princess.

"Cressida has done a U-turn – she has fallen head-over-heels for Harry and he comes first now," a source told the Daily Express. "She isn't afraid of the Royal circus any more."

The news comes as engagement rumours are rife, with bookmakers William Hill have shortened the odds the prince will get down on one knee in 2014.

Perhaps it really is time to go out and buy a new hat.
