Kate Middleton 'gives royal advice' to Cressida Bonas on winning back Prince Harry
Britain's Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly been giving Cressida Bonas tips on how to win back Prince Harry.
Cressida and Harry parted ways earlier this year after nearly two years of seeing each other. Now sources close to the trained dancer say she's eager to win him back, and has enlisted the help of Harry's sister-in-law Catherine.
"Kate had taken Cress under her wing and showed her the royal ropes. They really bonded and Kate was quite upset when she hand Harry split as it reminded her of when she separated from William in 2007.
"Back then, when she realised she wanted him back Kate slipped into her slinkiest outfits, went to William's favourite night spots, got seen with other guys - and did everything she could to make her ex realise what he was missing. Now Cress is using the same tactic," a royal insider divulged to British magazine Now.
While initial stories following the split reported that Cressida had been spotted on nights out crying, sources say she's now turned that behaviour around.
Instead of looking glum the 25-year-old has been seen at events looking sleek and sophisticated with a smile on her face.
"Cressida's absolutely everywhere right now, looking like she's having the time of her life. She looks stunning and sexy and it's not by accident. It's all part of a plan she's hatched with Kate and Princess Beatrice and Eugenie. They've told her to be very visible so Harry can see what he's missing," the source added.
In recent weeks Cressida has been pictured having fun at Glastonbury festival and at London's newest showbiz haunt Chiltern Firehouse.
"She's upped her game since she split with Harry. It was Kate's idea. She told Cressy to really plan her look before she ever steps out the house," the insider revealed.
