Cressida Bonas Is a Hipster

Why Cressida Bonas Is the Future Hipster Princess

Cressida Bonas has captured Prince Harry's heart and, if the reports are true, is well on her way to becoming a future princess. While Cressida is following in the footsteps of Kate Middleton, she is the complete opposite of the Duchess of Cambridge. In her ripped jeans and ironic scrunchies, Cressida looks more like someone you would see thrifting in Brooklyn instead of hitting up the shops on Kings Road, like Kate. In short, Cressida is a total hipster, and she's exactly what the royal family (and party-hardy Harry) needs. Here's why we think the Prince's girlfriend is the Queen of Cool.

She Loves Indie Music

According to People magazine, Cressida shares Harry's "love of indie music" as well as a penchant for partying until the wee hours. The pair also partied with Mumford & Sons (and Marcus Mumford's wife, Carey Mulligan) after its concert in London back in July.

She's in With the Cool Crowd

She's Artsy

Cressida studied dance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, England. She is also an aspiring actress, having landed a cameo in Trinity, a Gossip Girl knockoff that also starred her half sister, Isabella Calthorpe.
