Kate Middleton and George ‘convinced Prince Harry’s ex to break up with him’

Pictures of Kate Middleton and Prince George on a Royal tour of New Zealand and Australia "spooked" Prince Harry’s ex Cressida Bonas, a Royal biographer claimed.

Cressida dated Prince Harry for around two years before the pair broke up in 2014, but continued to remain the "very best of friends" as the split was "amicable."

Royal biographer, Robert Lacey, claims the couple finally split after she watched TV coverage of Prince William and Kate Middleton on tour with their then eight-month old son, Prince George.

In Battle of the Brothers, which is now on sale, he claims Cressida "regretfully explained to Harry" that was not the way "she would want to enjoy" her newborn son.

Mr Lacey writes: "A rising actress, Cressida did not enjoy the critical remarks that she could hear people making behind her back when she walked down the street in London – she felt that the fame of her relationship put her "in a box".

"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 – that was not the way she would want to enjoy her eight-month-old son, she regretfully explained to Harry."

Cressida and Prince Harry remained friends and was even invited to the Duke of Sussex' wedding to Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, Windsor.

Actress Cressida is now married herself, and wed in a secret lockdown wedding, marrying Harry Wentworth-Stanley, an estate agent and the son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven.

The bride and groom enjoyed a private ceremony in the countryside with their closest friends and family after initially putting the nuptials on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.

In March, Cressida, who was preparing for a role as Jeremy Bamber’s schizophrenic sister in Brit drama White House Farm, told the Australian Daily Telegraph that the split from her royal beau gave her a "stronger sense of purpose.”

Unlike Meghan, she said she wanted to be seen as more than just an "it girl" for the rest of her life, and has worked hard to carve out her own career.

She also said “fear” held her back from joining the Royal Family and said the split gave her a "stronger sense of purpose."
