Prince Harry’s Ex Cressida Bonas Just Responded to the Megxit Drama
It seems like everyone has an opinion about Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s decision to step back as senior members of the royal family. Since announcing their intent to become financially independent and split their time between the U.K. and North America — the British press and public have worked themselves into a frenzy.
It seems like feelings on the matter are split. Some people seem disgusted by the Sussexes choice to pave their own path for their mental health and for the sake of their infant son, Archie Harrison. In contrast, considering the bullying and racism that Markle has endured and continues to endure, others seem to understand.
Now, Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas has weighed on the Sussexes retreat which has been dubbed Megxit.
Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas dated for two years
Bonas is a good friend of Prince Harry’s cousin, Princess Eugenie, which is how the duo was introduced. They dated from 2012 to 2014. Though they were together for some time, their relationship ran its course.
When their split was announced in 2014, an insider told People, “He found her too needy and it just wasn’t working out.” However, it appears that the two were able to remain friendly.
“It’s very sad but they have decided to split up,” the second source tells explained. “This is an amicable decision and they are very much still the best of friends but they have decided to go their separate ways.”
This is what Cressida Bonas thinks about Megxit
Though Bonas and Prince Harry remain distantly friendly, and she even attended the Sussexes’ May 2018 wedding, Bonas is not eager to lend her two cents about Megxit.
During an interview with ES Magazine — Bonas was asked about the scrutiny that the Duchess of Sussex is under and how she felt about Megxit. She had quite the response. “I wouldn’t take a position on that because it would be a headline,” she explained. “Also out of respect. It feels like a long time ago. When it comes up, it feels strange because I’m in a different place. No one likes to be labeled. The hurdles for me are when I’m trying to do my work and people want to talk about him. I work very hard and love what I do, but it is still something I have to contend with.”
Bonas has her own successful career as an actress and she’s really engaged to her fiancé, Harry Wentworth-Stanley. We certainly get why she’s not thrilled about these questions.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle probably won’t attend Cressida Bonas’ wedding
Bonas and Wentworth-Stanley both run in the same circles as Prince Harry. Therefore it seems likely that the Sussexes might get an invite to the wedding. “Invites haven’t gone out yet, but I’m told Harry and Meghan will be invited,” an insider told The Sun. “Harry and Cressie are on good terms, Meghan has got to know her and they are expected to attend.”
However, with the drama surrounding them, the Sussexes probably won’t show up for this one. After all, their presence would possibly overshadow the newlywed couple.
