Ellie Goulding was a talented singer, enjoying fame around the world and collecting a huge number of pop hits along the way.  She had been unlucky in love and had broken up very recently with her latest boyfriend.  Most of her relationships had been with guys in the music business but none had worked out.  Maybe time to change tactics?

That next time was at ‘The Invictus Games’ where they were happy to be photographed together.  Ellie was doing a short set at the Games so it looked entirely innocent why she would be there.  Harry would invite her to the Palace when they were both available and they enjoyed each other’s company.

Cracks started to appear when Harry had to cancel dates due to commitments.  Ellie has made no secret that she struggles with her mental health and she didn’t think a long term partnership with the Prince was what she wanted.  They have remained friends to this day.

Cressida Bonas and Princess Eugenie were close friends and when Harry was single, yet again, his cousin decided to do a bit of matchmaking.  Cressida was from ‘good stock’; her father was a descendant of King Charles II and there was no scandal within her family.  The meeting was set up with surprising results.

Cressida and Harry’s romance was no longer under wraps.  They were often seen together at ceremonial events, festivals and on the slopes.  The media went wild as they seemed happy to be photographed.  There were no skeletons in her family’s cupboard and nothing stopping them moving to the next level – putting a ring on it!

Cressida moved into a flat closer to the Prince’s residence and APPEARED to be dealing well with the increased publicity surrounding her.  That wasn’t the case.  She couldn’t leave her front door without the flash of a camera picking up on her every move and it all became too much.  She called time on her relationship for her own sanity.

There were plenty of opportunities to see Harry and Chelsy as she was almost always by Harry’s side.  It wasn’t a bed of roses as the media’s obvious interest in them resulted in a life of being clicked by long lens cameras, something Harry accepted but not so easy for Chelsy.  It often became too much for her and they split up and got back together many, many times.
