Just days after watching her ex-boyfriend Prince Harry walk down the aisle and marry another woman (AKA Suits star Meghan Markle), actress Cressida Bonas has written a public diary entry for about her experience.
While Cressida didn't discuss her personal feels about watching Harry tie-the-knot, she did chat about her anxiety over having to wear a fascinator. "Friends are starting to get married, which means the dilemma of British wedding attire," she said. "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. Most of the time I avoid headgear. This can prompt disapproving looks from the older generations."
She continued by mentioning Harry's nuptials specifically, and worried she'd accidentally chosen the wrong hat: "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."
Harry and Cressida dated from 2012 to 2014 after allegedly being introduced by Princess Eugenie. She's since opened up about being pigeonholed by the relationship, "Especially in this country, I find that people are very quick to put you in a box or put you in a corner and think, 'Oh well, you're that, so you must be that.' It's incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I'm in. But you know, it is the way it is... It's making a stand and saying, 'Actually no, this is who I am, and this is what I want to do.'"
