Cressida Bonas and Harry Wentworth-Stanley have announced their engagement

Cressida has been dating Harry ever since her spilt from Prince Harry in 2014, and also dated him prior to her royal romance. Surveyor Harry, who is the son of the Marchioness of Milford Haven, works as an estate agent, specialising in the acquisition and disposal of residential and mixed-use development opportunities, according to the Savills website.

The couple started dating following her split from Prince Harry in 2014

Cressida and Prince Harry were introduced by Princess Eugenie in May 2012, and were in a relationship for a couple of years before their split. They have remained on good terms since the end of their relationship, however, with Cressida among the guests at Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in Windsor in May 2018. The actress has previously shared her frustration at being "pigeon-holed" as Prince Harry's ex-girlfriend. "It's incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I'm in," she said. "But you know, it is the way it is. It's about making a stand and saying, 'No, this is who I am and this is what I want to do'."

Harry, meanwhile, made headlines in 2016, when he rowed across the Atlantic with three friends, raising £600,000 to help build James' Place - the UK's first centre outside of a clinic or hospital designed to help suicidal men by giving counselling and therapy. Harry's brother James Wentworth-Stanley tragically took his own life at the age of 21 when he was studying in Newcastle in 2006, and parents Clare Milford Haven and Nick Wentworth-Stanley subsequently established James' Place to support men experiencing a suicidal crisis. Last year, Prince William showed his support for the cause, when he officially opened the centre in Liverpool.
