Cressida Bonas is reportedly “scared” for Britain’s Prince Harry.
The 24-year-old dancer and red-haired royal have been dating for around 18 months. They were separated last year when Harry served as a pilot in Afghanistan, but were said to be in constant contact during his time out there.
Now the third-in-line to the throne has jetted off again for a 16-day trek in Antarctica with Walking With The Wounded. While he tackles sub-zero temperatures his girlfriend is said to be worried about his safety.
“It’s obvious that something has changed [since last time]. Of course she missed Harry when he was in Afghanistan, but there’s something about finding ‘The One’ which makes it so much harder to see them go,” a source told British magazine Look.
“She’d no doubt hate it if Harry knew how scared she was, and I can imagine she’d prefer it if he wasn’t cracking jokes about the terrible weather in Antarctica and talking about the morale being at ‘rock bottom’. I think she’s desperate to stay positive but Harry’s jocular ways don’t make it easy!”
It appears the couple have become a lot closer recently. A close friend believes Cressida needs to be ready to cope with Harry’s spontaneous and wild choices
“It looks like Harry and Cressy have got a lot more serious over the past six months. It’s an open secret they’re going to get married,” a friend added. “I don’t believe Cressida has ever felt like this before. She should get used to it, though, because it won’t be the last time she’s left at home fretting while Harry does something crazy.”
