Prince Harry’s ex, Cressida Bonas, has married Harry Wentworth-Stanley in a secret ceremony.

The 31-year-old actress tied the knot with Harry Wentworth-Stanley in a private ceremony at Cowdray Park, in Midhurst, West Sussex over the weekend, after they were forced to postpone their big day due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

"Cressida looked stunning and was radiant. We are just all so happy for them and it was a great day but they did request that no one talks about it,” a source told the Daily Mail.

Another insider added: "Cressida did not want a big fuss, and did not want others to talk about it. You most certainly will not be seeing her wedding in Hello magazine. She is also aware that [Prince] Harry is in the headlines and knew the attention her wedding would attract if it leaked out."

Cressida's brother Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe first broke the news of the wedding when he shared a picture of his sister and new brother-in-law "riding off into their beautiful future" on horseback, on his Instagram Stories.

Model and actress Cressida dated Prince Harry, 34, from 2012 to 2014, after they were introduced by his cousin Princess Eugenie.

The pair’s split was amicable and Cressida even attended Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding at St George’s Chapel in Windsor in May 2018.

According to biographer, Katie Nicholl, Cressida struggled to deal with the attention that came with being a royal girlfriend.

She wrote in her book, Harry: Life, Loss, and Love: "Cressida had been 'completely spooked' while watching TV coverage of William, Kate and George touring New Zealand and Australia that spring. There was no way she wanted that sort of attention and she told Harry so."

Cressida wasn’t the only ex at the royal wedding. Harry’s former girlfriend and businesswoman Chelsy Davy, 33, (whom he dated from 2004 to 2011) also bagged an invite.

Meanwhile, Cressida previously revealed that she and Wentworth-Stanley did not want a traditional wedding.

"I won't have those graphs that some brides do. I won't have a huge wedding, that's not really us. We aren't traditional people, even though Harry proposed in a traditional way - I've never thought about how someone would propose to me. And I don't want a meringue dress. People look beautiful in them but I don't think I would,” she told te Daily Mail.
