Prince Harry 'meeting with Cressida'

Britain's Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are rumoured to have planned secret meeting to discuss their recent split.

The former couple split last month, following nearly two years of dating. The end of the romance came as a shock to most as it had widely been reported that the pair were on the verge of marriage.

Now insiders say the young royal is keen to talk to his former girlfriend, with Cressida providing the ideal place for the meeting.

"They are planning to meet within the week to have it all out. Cressida's father has told them they can use his Norfolk farmhouse, so they have complete privacy," a source revealed to British magazine Grazia.

While both Prince Harry and Cressida have remained tight lipped about the breakup, palace insiders say the pretty blonde was put under pressure to appear "more royal".

Cressida is a trained dancer, and also comes from a privileged background, so reportedly didn't take well to such demands. She's also not trying to emulate Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, in her relationship with 29-year-old Harry.

"In the past few months Cressida's got the distinct impression she was being told to 'smarten up'. She is not going to change into the next Kate, she loves her boho style and won't change for anyone. She's told Harry that. It's telling that she's been out recently in her trademark Dr Martens," the insider explained.

"She's had to turn down lucrative modelling contracts and dance work - which she studied and is passionate about - and settle for this desk job in marketing. She is an independent girl and won't stand for being defined by her relationship. She comes from an aristocratic family and is not impressed by his royal status. She just wants to be with Harry."
