The coverage Kate Middleton received during her trip to Australia “completely scared” Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend, Cressida Bonas.
Biographer and actual author Katie Nicholl brought this claim to light in her 2017 book. Harry: Life, loss and love.
There he wrote: “Cressida had been ‘completely freaked out’ while watching television coverage of William, Kate and George on tour of New Zealand and Australia that spring.”
Even a friend of Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend sat down to discuss the same shock, admitting: “I was sitting at home watching Kate on the royal tour of Australia, and it was a wake-up call.”
At the end of the day, “There was no way she wanted that kind of attention and she told Harry. Harry didn’t want things to end. “
“He was in love with her and tried to convince her that they could make it work, but Cressida was determined. Harry was hit hard when she said, ‘I can’t do this.’ I think she really broke his heart. “
