Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas were some of the guests to make their way inside St George's Chapel in Windsor for Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's royal wedding on Friday. Cressida, 29, dated Prince Harry for two years before their split in 2014, while 32-year-old Chelsy was in an on/off relationship with the royal for seven years before he went on to marry Meghan Markle. It's not surprising that Cressida has managed to secure a coveted invite since she has been close friends with Eugenie for many years; the pair have been pictured together at various high-society events.

Cressida, a talented actress, was initially introduced to Harry through his cousin Eugenie. The pair kept their romance largely out of the spotlight, and it was only in March 2014 that Cressida accompanied the Prince to her first official event, attending the launch of the We Day in London. The couple are believed to have called time on their relationship amid frustrations about their life in the public eye, and the impact it was having on Cressida.
Prince Harry's other ex Cressida Bonas was also there
Both Chelsy and Cressida's appearance at Windsor Castle comes shortly after they attended Harry's wedding to Meghan Markle in May at the same location. It's clear that Harry has remained friends with both his exes since their splits. Writing in a column for The Spectator, Cressida opened up about the difficulty of picking an outfit rather than attending an ex's wedding. "Friends are starting to get married, which means the dilemma of British wedding attire. Hats. Why do I find hats so tricky? Tricky to wear, tricky to look at, and extremely tricky for the poor soul sitting in the pew behind," Cressida wrote.
"Most of the time I avoid headgear. This can prompt disapproving looks from the older generations." She continued: "Last weekend I attended the royal wedding. The invitation clearly stated that guests must wear hats. Yikes. I opted for a minimal feathered number - and can only hope I got it right." Cressida looked stylish in a multi-patterned tribal dress by Eponine London and her feathered fascinator.
