Prince Harry first started dating Cressida back in 2012 after they were introduced by Princess Eugenie, but they split just two years later.

Shortly after her royal break-up, Cressida got back with her ex Harry - an estate agent and the son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven - and the pair have been dating since 2017.

During an interview with BBC's Woman's Hour, Cressida said: "It's incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I'm in.

"But you know, it is the way it is. It's about making a stand and saying, 'No, this is who I am and this is what I want to do.'"

Meanwhile, the newly engaged couple have kept their relationship low-key over the past two years, only attending a handful of A-List events together.

Harry also regularly posts sweet snaps with his future wife on social media as they enjoy amazing holidays all over the world.

When did Cressida Bonas date Prince Harry?

Before he found love with Meghan Markle, Prince Harry was with Cressida Bona for two years from 2012 and the prince is said to have regularly wrote to Cressida while serving in Afghanistan.

Although they kept their romance private, the pair were occasionally snapped on holiday or events such as Glastonbury.

After two years together, the pair split in 2014 - with Cressida reportedly overwhelmed by the media attention she was getting.
