Row over £650 air fare sparks Prince Harry love split with Cressida Bonas
Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas ended their relationship "suddenly" after a heated argument on Sunday prompted by, of all things, concerns over money, close friends have disclosed.
The couple had been due to fly to America together to attend the wedding of the Prince's friend Guy Pelly on Saturday, but Miss Bonas (25) had to pay for her own £650 air fare and did not want to spend so much money if their troubled relationship was doomed.
She chose to confront the Prince over their future, which resulted in a "a bust-up" and the decision to go their separate ways. Friends suggested that the pair "might both regret it" and could get back together at a later date.
However, Miss Bonas (25) was said to have been unhappy for some time, partly because of the strain of being in the public eye and partly because the dance graduate was feeling "frustrated and unfulfilled" at her inability to pursue a career on the stage while dating the Prince.
Prince Harry will now fly to Mr Pelly's wedding without Miss Bonas, accompanied by his brother the Duke of Cambridge.
While the Prince can look forward to drowning his sorrows, Miss Bonas went straight back to the daily grind yesterday, heading off to work in London's Soho.
