So Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are going to get engaged. It’s a done deal, and anyone who thinks otherwise is living in denial. Now, it’s all a matter of what comes next. Cressida is about to become a princess, and the only person who’s gone through what she’s about to go through is Kate Middleton.
And according to E! News, Kate’s been giving Cressida plenty of advice on how to prepare for the massive life change. A royal insider reportedly explained, “Kate’s been brilliant with Cressida and has been giving her advice. She likes her very much and has offered her tips on how to keep her normality. Kate’s been there and done it and, while she knows Cressida won’t be as talked about and followed like she was, she needs to get a real slant on what happens.”
Hmm, passive aggressive much? Kate knows that Cressida won’t be ‘talked about and followed like she was‘, a.k.a. she’s that much more important than Cressida. However, while Kate’s been doing her best to be helpful to Cressida, there’s always the underlying resentment threatening to bubble up. Don’t forget, Cressida is half-sisters with Isabella Calthorpe, who almost stole Prince William away from Kate.
For those of you who don’t know the history behind this, Prince William dumped Kate way back in the day to pursue Isabella, who in turn dumped him because she didn’t want to join the royal family. He was apparently ready to propose to Isabella and would have had she not left him, which is when he went back to Waity Katy and then eventually proposed to her.
Kate knows that Isabella was Will’s first choice, and considering that Cressida is her half-sister, you can imagine how she’d have a hard time containing her feelings, no? But alas, Kate is professional and she will never show any of this. She will pretend to be happy whenever Isabella is around, even if she’s seething inside. Do you think Will will make a move on Isabella? Certainly his father, Prince Charles and grandfather, Prince Philip, have a well-documented history of cheating on their royals wives.
