Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida enjoy low-key date in Kensington burger joint

It’s never too early in the week to enjoy a dinner-date, as Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida Bonas showed when they headed out to upmarket burger chain Byron on Kensington High Street earlier this week.

The pair were casual and relaxed for their low-key date. Harry, still sporting the beard he grew during his Antarctica trek to the South Pole with the Walking with the Wounded charity, wore a grey baseball cap and matching shirt with a pair of jeans and casual shoes.

Former dance student Cressida was equally as casual in a black jacket, skinny black jeans and Nike Air Max trainers. A cute orange beanie hat completed the trendy look. She appears to have been meeting the Prince after a day out, as she also carried a black rucksack.

Harry and Cressida's relaxed mid-January date took place close to to his bachelor pad at Kensington Palace. It comes after the pair reportedly did not spend Christmas together.

It is understood that the 24-year-old enjoyed the festivities with her family.

While Cressida has been to Sandringham on two different occasions, neither the Queen or Prince Philip were in residence at the time.

According to a courtier: "His Royal Highness knows that it would not be appropriate for Miss Bonas to join the Royal family for Christmas until they are a married couple."

The couple have recently been the subject of wedding rumours, which Cressida's half-brother has denied.

Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe said the buzz surrounding an impending wedding was "ludicrous".
