Kate Middleton's Not Too Keen On Prince Harry's Girlfriend
The Duchess of Cambridge's brother-in-law, Prince Harry has been dating Cressida Bonas since May 2012, but Her Royal Highness would prefer the lovebirds not get married. Ever.
The Duchess had to once fight Bonas’ half-sister, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, for Prince William‘s attention.
Back in the 2004, Middleton and William split for the first time, reportedly because William wanted to sow his wild oats. During their time-out, William made a beeline for actress Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, Bonas’ half-sister.
"He [William] had fallen for her in a huge way and wanted to be with her," a source told the Daily Mail of William and Calthorpe. "He propositioned her several times that summer and although Isabella was single, she knocked William back and said it would be too damaging for her and her career.
“Kate was very aware of his obsession with Isabella and she was incredibly threatened by her. Isabella is drop-dead beautiful and would leave any girl in the shade. I would go so far as to say that William dumped Kate because he thought he had a chance with Isabella and Kate knew that,” the source added.
“Kate accepted William back again but on the condition that he would not speak to Isabella again.”
Calthorpe married her longtime boyfriend, Sam Branson this past March in South Africa, and was a guest at the 2011 royal wedding (though Branson was not).
However, according to the Telegraph, Calthorpe wasn’t invited to the breakfast reception, nor the evening do at Buckingham Palace. Apparently she hitched a ride home post-ceremony with Guy Ritchie.
“Cressida has said Kate is not keen on her relationship with Harry,” one of her friends told the paper. “Cressie and Isabella could not be closer. Where she goes, Bella goes.
