'I'd rather not go into it' - Cressida Bonas refuses to be drawn on ex Prince Harry
Cressida Bonas is keeping her cards close to her chest.
The 29-year-old gained international fame for her relationship with Britain's Prince Harry from 2012 to 2014, but she's focused on forging her own path in the spotlight as an actress, after originally training as a dancer.
Despite reportedly landing an invite to his wedding to Meghan Markle on May 19, Bonas wouldn't be drawn on commenting on her ex, preferring to stay silent and focus on her own endeavours.
In an interview with The Times on Wednesday, she was asked about her relationship with the royal and whether she would wish him well, to which she said: "I'd just rather not go into it."
"I have to be really careful what I say because ... well, you know ... I don't want to be ... I think I've said this before anyway, but people like putting people into boxes and into stereotypes, especially in this country and no I don't think that helps," she added.
"I think you want to be a blank canvas as an actress but I'd rather not say anything, actually, if you don't mind because it is kind of in my past and I am so focused on the acting."
She has previously spoken about her frustrations at being constantly affiliated by her former relationship, telling the BBC's Woman's Hour last year that she felt "pigeonholed".
"Especially in this country, I find people are very quick to put you in a box or put you in a corner and think ‘oh well you’re that so you must be that," she explained.
"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. Saying no, this is who I am and this is what I want to do."
Cressida is in a relationship with Harry Wentworth Stanley for two years, reuniting in 2016 after dating for four year at university and said things were going "very well" between them.
