Prince Harry's 'Date' With Cressida Bonas Suddenly Makes Total Sense

Kate Middleton is probably breathing a hugh sigh of relief right about now. Despite their being spotted together at a pub recently, Prince Harry and ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas are never, ever getting back together (maybe). And the reason for Harry and Cressida's remaining just friends may have everything to do with another special woman in Harry's life.

Prince William's 31-year-old brother reportedly has love and possibly even marriage on his mind, but model and actress Cressida Bonas is not the one. The two dated from 2012 until 2014 after Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie of York introduced them, and they have decided to remain good friends. Harry even popped into a London theater to watch his ex perform in The Importance of Being Earnest this spring. People started to talk after Cressida and a bunch of Harry's friends helped him celebrate his birthday at a pub earlier this week, but reports of a romance were quickly slammed.

Neither Cressida nor Harry reportedly have any interest in a relationship, though they say they're there for each other and will support each other's accomplishments. Instead, the prince is dead-set on working things out with ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy, and I couldn't be more excited for them.

That's right, we're that much closer to possibly enjoying another royal wedding because the 29-year-old South African attorney, whom Harry dated from 2004 until 2011, is in London and interested in seeing if they can make love happen again.

You have to wonder whether Chelsy is totally cool with Harry hanging out with another gorgeous blonde with whom he shares a romantic history. I think it's difficult for anyone who hasn't been able to keep in touch with exes to understand this, but yes, it's completely possible to be friendly with someone you liked -- even loved -- as long as you are both on the same page with the idea that you're just going to be friends. The sparks may have once been there between these two, but that doesn't mean they haven't fizzled for good or that Harry and Cressida haven't realized they make better friends than partners.

I just hope Harry is being honest with Chelsy about his hangout time with Cressida and that she feels secure enough to know their friendship doesn't have to impact her potential relationship with the prince.
