Prince Harry's Split From Cressida Bonas Broke More Than Just Her Heart

Cressida Bonas

OMG. This is really kind of sad, you guys. In the wake of her shocking split from Prince Harry, Cressida Bonas is on "compassionate leave" from her marketing job so that she can heal from the breakup away from prying eyes.

And based on what a pal of hers said, it sounds like Cressie is all sorts of crying into her beer over Harry and then some. The insider claims, "Cressida can't stand the fact that everywhere she goes, someone takes a picture of her on their smartphone especially when she is feeling down. She has been told it’s O.K. for her to take some time off work."

Geez. I wonder if the compassionate leave thing would ever stand a chance of happening over here in the U.S.? Nah. You're probably right. "My royal boyfriend just dumped me and I'm really upset" likely isn't grounds for slacking on the job in the States.

But I guess when you've been dating royalty for two years, exceptions have to be made.

Going through a breakup is bad enough as it is without the paparazzi following you everywhere to capture a shot of you crying and pouting. I guess it's understandable that Cress wants to take some time to heal in peace.

And then there are those rumors saying that Kate Middleton is responsible for the split, which much make it even harder for Cressida to put the past behind her and move on. If that's really the case and Kate had a hand in Harry kicking her to the curb, it has to sting even more, being that Kate is one of the most adored and celebrated women in the world. (You know, like she's constantly reminded she wasn't good enough for the royals.)

Taking some time off is definitely for the best, and maybe the break is exactly what Cressie needs to get back on her feet and hold her head high again. Harry breaking her heart is a given, but let's hope he didn't totally break her spirit too.

Are you surprised that Cressida is this upset?

Once again the stir misses a key piece of the gossip. That being that Kate was insecure about Cressida because at some point Prince William would be around her half sister Isabella Calthorpe who once upon a time Prince William briefly broke up with Kate Middleton for. Its rumored she feared Isabella would be the next Camilla.

Seriously? Who was Cressida before Harry? She knew the implications of dating a royal. You made your bed sleep in it!! Leave from work no and no. Kate went through " hell" in her 8 year courtship with Wil. So let it be said perseverance wins.Bye Bye Cres. Let Harry meet the real deal. He deserves it..

They made a cute couple. She was under a lot of pressure with the press in her face all the time. He would be lucky to get her.

O, The Stir, I feel so sad for your very low level reporting! Cressida was no one before Prince Harry as was Duchess Kate before Prince William. I give Duchess Kate 2 thumbs up for going through what she did for 8 years before she and Prince William got married. When she and Prince William broke up that time before they married, she did NOT take "compassionate leave." She pulled herself up by her classy boot straps and forged on. Duchess Kate is too classy to be involved with breaking up anyone.

If Kate really was responsible! then she's not the person some people thought she is….I dot believe she is that would obviously make her into something that she doesn't represent. its your lives that have to be led not by others but yourselves….Doesn't matter if your Royal or not…we're all spirits living a human life and we have to love one another….If your meant to be together then that will happen…Your not living for the people your living for yourselves and I am sure that Princess Diana would agree if she were here in human form now….Doesn't matter what Papers, press, news reporters say they are the worst Culpits in the world for causing hurt, pain, gossip etc….never listen to it…..Gosh! Leave these people alone, they deserve their happiness as humans too...

First of all,i'd like to think that William's wife is a nice lady ,but who adores her???Please ,show me one mother (apart from Ma Middleton)who would allow her daughter to be an on-call g/f for ten years.I guarantee you that 99percent of normal parents would read their daughters the riot act.Second,and more importantly,i wonder whether William is a good big brother to Harry.After all an older sibling becomes immensely important when a parent passes away so unexpectedly.I wonder whether he is looking out for his kid brother.I wonder whether William would put his foot down if Kate tried (again, we don't know she did meddle)to meddle in Harry's love life.It would be William's job to stand up for his younger brother

LeeshaE, Isabella was at William & Kate's wedding so I really doubt that's the case. I doubt Kate had much to do with the break-up. What almost 30-year-old man would let his sister-in-law dictate his love life? If so, he didn't really care about her anyway.
