For many, the thought of an ex getting married is a cause for concern, let alone being there for attending the peaceful conciliation.
Moreover, when Prince Harry took the initiative of inviting his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas to his royal wedding, she has accepted the invitation gladly. However, as she has revealed on Thursday, that doesn’t mean that she did feel anxious about attending. The 29-year-old model has opened up about the experience and what she worried about most about the 33-year-old royal prince’s wedding to Meghan Markle in a column for U.K. magazine ‘The Spectator.’ Cressida has admitted, “Friends are starting to get married, which means the dilemma of British wedding attire. Hats. Why do I find hats so tricky? Tricky to wear, tricky to look at, and extremely tricky for the poor soul sitting in the pew behind.”
She has said that most of the time she avoids headgear; this can prompt disapproving looks from the older generations and last weekend she attended the royal wedding, the invitation clearly stated that guests must wear hats. Cressida dated the royal prince for two years after being introduced to him by his cousin Princess Eugenie.
The two then parted their ways amicably in 2014. He also invited his former girlfriend Chelsy Davy— whom he dated on-and-off from 2004 to 2011. Chelsy has said that she and Harry still kept in touch. She has told The Sunday Times style section, “I think we will always be good friends.
While it is not common for ordinary people to invite their former lovers to their weddings, there’s royal precedent for asking their exes to their big day. Prince William has asked some women to whom he was romantically linked to – Rose Farquhar, Olivia Hunt, Arabella Musgrave and Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, who is Bonas’s half-sister as well as his ex-girlfriend, Jecca Craig— to his wedding to Kate Middleton in 2011.
