Would you give up your passion for a chance to become a princess? According to recent reports, that's exactly what Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas has chosen to do.
Despite studying dance for the past four years at Leeds University and subsequently the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, the 24-year-old has ditched her dreams in favor of a position as a personal assistant at a high-end London firm. As a friend of hers told the Daily Mail, "She doesn’t want to do anything that will embarrass Prince Harry. I think she felt uncomfortable about photographs being seen of her dancing earlier this year."
As the publication also noted, rumors are circulating that "royal courtiers" have hinted to Bonas that dancing doesn't sound like a proper profession for a future princess.
A job as a PA offers more flexibility to work around Harry's schedule, too — something that Cressida doesn't seem to mind one bit. "Cressida has done a U-turn — she has fallen head-over-heels for Harry and he comes first now. She isn’t afraid of the royal circus anymore."
Bonas also seems to be adjusting to the resulting media circus, as reports and photos of her and Harry's activities routinely make headlines, such as their recent getaway to the queen's Sandringham estate and their dates to a James Blunt concert and a showing of "The Book of Mormon."
Dancing, however, doesn't seem like it's going to have a place in Bonas' life.
What do you think? Was right for her to give up her passion to become a princess?
