After dating for nearly two years, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas have decided to split up. A source close to the Bonas family has confirmed the news saying that it is sad, but “it’s very amicable.”
Bonas and Prince Harry first met when the socialite was introduced to Prince Harry by his cousin, Princess Eugenie of York. Since then, the two had been seen cozying up to each other and appearing together at public events.
Just last fall, there were speculations about the couple’s engagement, but the rumors were quickly shot down by Bonas’ brother.

A source at the Kensington Palace told US Magazine that the couple has “hit a rocky patch and this decision is the result of that.” The source also mentioned that Prince Harry is the type of man who likes to take breathers and then try the relationship again. Another source told the Telegraph that the break-up is just “a breather.”
Nobody knows if the couple is taking a break or if they are over for good, but many seem to understand that being in a relationship has its challenges, especially for a couple that is being watched by the entire world.
Now, people will be looking to see if Bonas and the Prince show up together in Memphis for the wedding on one of the prince’s closest friends, Guy Pelly. According to reports, Bonas was invited to the event and was planning on attending with Prince Harry and Prince William.
The source also mentioned that it is truly impossible to say if the break-up is the end of the relationship, citing Prince William and Kate Middleton as an example, as the two broke up for a while before finally getting back together and getting married. Chances are the couple may not know what the status of their relationship is either.
