Cressida Bonas’ parents ‘don’t approve’ of new beau
Cressida Bonas’ parents don’t “approve” of her new boyfriend, Edward Holcroft.
The parents of Britain’s Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend are not a fan of her latest crush – who she reportedly began dating last month – and much preferred her former royal beau, who she dated from 2012 to 2014.
A source revealed: “Cressida is upset with her parents because neither have met Ed. Cressie is really into Ed and desperately wants her parents to meet him and for them to approve. She has been giving them the full silent treatment.
“Usually they are very welcoming of Cressida’s friends. Harry spent quite a bit of time at Jeffrey’s house in Norfolk. Mary and Jeffrey got on well with Harry. They approved of him.”
And the 25-year-old model’s parents, 1960s model Lady Mary Gaye Curzon and Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas, are believed to not be confident in their daughter’s choice in partner because they believe actors can be “non-committal”, despite the fact she has also carved out a career in acting.
The source continued: “They are not convinced she should be with an actor. I think they feel actors tend to be flighty and non-committal.”
Meanwhile, another source described the 27-year-old ‘Wolf Hall’ hunk as “fabulous” and admitted they were perplexed by Cressida’s parents disapproval.
They told the Daily Mail newspaper: “The thing that is so baffling is that there is nothing not to like about Ed. He’s Hugh Grant handsome, has been singled out by Harvey Weinstein as the next big star, and is a fabulous actor with a great future.”
