The English model and actress dated the British royal from 2012 to 2014, per the BBC. Princess Eugenie reportedly introduced the couple to each other in the summer of 2012. Their relationship endured Prince Harry’s five-month deployment to Afghanistan, but ultimately, it wasn’t meant to be. The breakup was “said to be amicable,” according to BBC royal correspondent Peter Hunt, who also said that the two remain “the best of friends.”
Being that Prince Harry has been a fixture of the British press since he was born, he was “keen … to make it clear the relationship didn’t end because he found Cressida ‘too needy,’ ” per Peter Hunt.
