It’s been less than two weeks since Prince Harry announced his engagement to American actress Meghan Markle, but the redheaded royal is already hanging around his ex-girlfriend, Cressida Bonas! To be fair, their shared attendance at the Henry Van Straubenzee Memorial Fund carol concert appears to have been a coincidence, and according to reports, the duo did not socialize.
Meghan was not at the event because she’s currently in LA with her mother, Doria Radlan. The brunette beauty will allegedly spend Christmas with her fiancé’s family at Queen Elizabeth’s country house, Sandringham. However, Kate Middleton’s sister and mother, Pippa and Carole, were also at the function with Harry.

Cressida, who dated the 33-year-old from 2012 to 2014, seemingly shaded her ex shortly after news of his engagement broke. On Instagram, the actress and model posted a quote that read, “No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat people ultimately tells it all.” Needless to say, fans took it as a slight to Harry.
As Life & Style exclusively revealed, Princess Diana’s youngest son and his soon-to-be bride are busy planning a $30 million wedding — which will take place in May 2018. “Harry and Meghan aren’t holding back on anything,” an insider shares. “It will be a day of glitz and glamour!” Though the couple’s nuptials will take place in St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle — decidedly smaller than Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate got married — they will still be inviting close to 700 people, but most of their budget will go towards security.
No word yet on whether Cressida — or Harry’s other famous ex, Chelsy Davy — will score a seat, but we have a feeling Meghan would rather make room for a few A-list friends such as Priyanka Chopra and Serena Williams. At least the wedding will be televised!
