Very few would invite an ex to their wedding, but Prince Harry surprised everyone by doing just that.


Cressida Bonas was one of the lucky few who received an invitation to the Royal Wedding on the 19th of May 2018. Bonas, 29, was invited by Prince Harry, and she had a very special place in his life, reported 

Bonas dated Harry, 33, for two years after being introduced to him by Princess Eugenie, his uncle Prince Andrew's daughter. The relationship ended in 2014 but they remained friends.

Bonas confessed that her greatest worry about attending the wedding was having to wear a hat. Protocol demands that all the female guests wear hats, and Bonas was faced with the daunting prospect of finding the right hat to accessorize her outfit.


“I opted for a minimal feathered number — and can only hope I got it right.”

Prince Harry also invited another former girlfriend Chelsy Davy, whom he dated from 2004 to 2011. Davy said that she and Harry still kept in touch, and would always be good friends.

Prince William had also invited his ex-girlfriends to his wedding: Rose Farquhar, Olivia Hunt, Arabella Musgrave,  Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, and Jecca Craig. Coincidentally, Calthorp is Bonas’ half-sister. 


Cressida Curzon Bonas was a hot favorite to be the next royal bride at the time she was dating Prince Harry. The English actress and model is the youngest daughter of Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon and entrepreneur Jeffrey Bonas. She is a granddaughter of Edward Curzon, 6th Earl Howe, and had all the right aristocratic credentials. 


In July 2016 Prince Harry was introduced to American/Canadian actress Meghan Markle by a mutual friend who set them up on a blind date. A second date quickly followed the first, and just a few weeks later the two went to Botswana together for a romantic getaway.

In 2017 the relationship became public, and Kensington Palace announced the engagement, and the date was set for what was to be the most mediatic wedding of the decade.
