Will Cressida Bonas Attend Prince George’s Christening?

Cressida BonasCressida BonasYou know when you have an okay first date and there's the prospect of a second, but the activity proposed is sort of a . . . commitment? ("Was thinking we could grab drinks on this rooftop and then head downtown to the opera and then there's an awesome ice cream place nearby!") You end up declining mainly because it all just seems like such a production. Well, here is a royal thing that is (basically not at all, but maybe in the slightest bit) just like that!

Cressida Bonas, Harry's scrunchie-loving, overalls-flaunting paramour-who was Hermione Granger's best friend during their fourth year of Hogwarts but then they had a weird falling out-hasreportedly been invited to Prince George's christening on Wednesday, the social event of the year. Only about sixty people have made the cut, according to the Mail (Princesses Anne and Sophie, for example, did not receive the Paperless Post invite), which makes Cressida's inclusion all the more significant. This is serious!

But Cressy, wild child and former dancer that she is, doesn't know if she wants to attend the St. James's Palace service, which will be followed by tea at Clarence House. "She's very, very nervous, about everything, but Prince Harry is being very protective of her and wants her there," says the Mail's source. Harry is said to have "reassured her" that William and Kate want the christening "to be a private and intimate gathering of family and friends" and he "is now anxious that she is seen at his side."

If we know anything about twentysomethings, Cressy will leave Harry hanging for another 24 hours and then text him Tuesday morning: "still not sure abt tomorrow, not feeling super great, and I'm just, like, tired xoxxx" Then, after maybe an hour (that's being generous) of not hearing back from Harry, she'll hastily send another: "actually starting to feel better, can't wait for tomorrow!" followed, in this particular case, by an "urgent: blue scrunchie or gold scrunchie???" a few minutes later.
