Prince Harry's Ex-Girlfriend Has Happy Family News

Before marrying Meghan Markle, Prince Harry was considered one of the most eligible bachelors in the world (via Town & Country), and he dated many beautiful women before falling head over heels in love with his future wife. One of Harry's most serious relationships was with model Cressida Bonas. The Duke of Sussex dated Bonas for two years before the couple called it quits in 2014, per Tatler.

Rumors also began flying that Harry and the model split because she wanted to focus on her acting career. However, media scrutiny was also thought to play a part in the demise of their relationship. According to the book, "Battle of Brothers," Cressida allegedly didn't like the amount of attention that was her due to her romance with the Duke of Sussex (via The Mirror). The book also claimed that the model watched Kate Middleton fall under intense harsh criticism, which spooked her a bit.

However, the relationship was a total wash. Town & Country reports that Cressida is the person who encouraged Harry to seek therapy and get his mental health in check when he began to spiral. Author Tina Brown claims that Harry even wrote his ex-girlfriend a letter after their breakup to thank her for pushing him to seek treatment for his demons.

These days things are very different for Harry and Cressida.
