Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas split? Couple "on the rocks"

People could hardly believe it when playboy Prince Harry wasn't playing the field any more, after he hooked up with society girl Cressida Bonas. But, nearly a year on, it looks like Harry may be ready to call it a day. Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie are on side to convince him otherwise.

It seems there's some serious trouble in paradise for Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

The couple have taken a few knocks over the past month and now apparently it's his choice of friends that's causing the issue.

Cressida is reportedly concerned that Harry's best friend Guy Pelly is a bad influence and has also apparently asked that he cool off his friendship with Kate Middleton's sister Pippa.

The whole thing is said to have put a strain on Cressida's already tested relationship with the 28-year-old, who apparently sees it as "nagging".

Cressida, who's been close friends with the royals for years, is apparently feeling uneasy and isolated.

A friend of Princess Beatrice told Now magazine: "Eugenie and Bea have asked Harry to understand how hard it is for Cress.

"They told him: 'Put the shoe on the other foot. It's not easy - no wonder she's worried and lonely.'"

According to the friend, the blonde beauty is struggling with the inevitable media attention and doesn't want to become a "trophy wife".

​Pictures have recently emerged of the 24-year-old on nights out, behaving in a less than perfect royal way.

This comes on the back of stories last month that Cressida was feeling immense pressure from the Royal Family to live up to Prince William's wife Kate.

A friend of Cressida's told The Telegraph: "Cressida has been in floods of tears.

"Harry is coming on very strong, but she is all over the place. She thinks she is far too young to get married and is scared by all his talk of marriage and settling down."

A month down the line and it sounds like Harry's struggling to deal with her difficulties.

The friend added: "She likes Harry, but is not the sort to be bothered about his title."

This may explain why she didn't meet Harry while he was working in the US, as was previously expected.

But Cressida's Princess pals are keen to smooth things over and get the couple back on track.

Now's source said: "Bea and Eugenie really think she's the girl for Harry."
