Theory B: Cressida Was Fed Up With the Attention

Not everyone is as prepared for the royal spotlight as Kate Middleton, who was able to get to know Prince William at university, where the press left him alone for the most part. Reporter Tom Skyes wrote a column on The Daily Beast that refuted People's claim that Harry wanted someone less emotionally dependent, and instead said it was Cressida who wanted to end things:

"Friends of Cressida Bonas today told the Royalist that the pressure of being constantly followed by photographers and journalists inquiring into her private life had pushed her to end her relationship with Prince Harry. 'She just got fed up with it,' said one. 'She and Harry are very fond of each other, but she wants to have her own life.'"

The article continued:

"Pressure on Cressida has been ramped up ever since she and Harry made a public appearance together at a youth event at Wembley Stadium, and were pictured kissing and cuddling as they sat together in the crowd."

And went on:

"Just this week, for example, Cressida was photographed by paparazzi as she purchased a juice at a London juice bar. The office in central London's Soho district, where she works as a PA, has been regularly staked out by paparazzi, as has the apartment she shares with friends."
