According to reports, the actress and model was put off a royal life from watching Prince George’s upbringing.
Royal biographer Robert Lacey wrote in his new book, Battle of Brothers, that Cressida was shocked by the extensive media coverage that she saw Kate Middleton and Prince George receiving. It was reportedly then that she realise and explained that she would not want to raise her own child in as much of a public way.
"In 2014, she was said to have been 'completely spooked' after watching the TV coverage of William and Kate touring New Zealand with baby George in tow," the book reads. "That was not the way she would want to enjoy her eight-month-old son, she regretfully explained to Harry."
Despite the break up, they appear to have remained good friends, with Cressida even attending Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding in 2018.
Well, that’s that.
