Here's some gossip from inside the palace and oooooh! it’s straight out of “Downton Abbey.”
Kate Middleton gets catty, apparently, when the topic of Prince Harry’s girlfriend Cressida Bonas is mentioned, the same girl he’s been dating since May 2012.
According to a source for the Daily Mail, after Prince William and Kate Middleton first broke up in 2007, the royal went on to date—or was interested in, anyway—Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, who is coincidentally Cressida’s half-sister.
“[William] had fallen for her in a huge way and wanted to be with her,” the source said. “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,” the source added. “Isabella is drop-dead beautiful and would leave any girl in the shade,” so “Kate accepted William back again but on the condition that he would not speak to Isabella again.”
Therefore, because of her familial ties, Cressida is a prickly topic for the Duchess of Cambridge. So, the next time you’re dining with her, just be sure not to bring it up or anything.
