Cressida Bonas supports The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts auction after dates with Harry

by hellomagazine.com

Hot on the heels of their cinema date, Cressida Bonas attended an arts event that shows she's still fond of Prince Harry.

The fledgling actress - who studied dance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire - joined friends at an exhibition organised by The Prince's Foundation for Children and the Arts

Cressida looked pretty in a cropped top that showed off her toned dancer's body and a flowing skirt with a bright cherry print pattern - just one of a series of daring outfits she's worn since ending her relationship with the eligible royal.

The bohemian blonde was known to be wary of the attention that came with royal sweetheart status. This cooling period has allowed her to blossom: a few months ago she landed a big screen role in Tulip Fever, a historical drama, featuring Cara Delevingne.

Conversely, taking the pressure off seems to have brought her closer to Harry.

The weekend before his 30th birthday she rushed back from the wedding of one of her extended family in Italy to support him at the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games

There was no sighting of the pair together behind the scenes, instead Cressida mingled with a coterie of friends including Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie. Then, of course, the duo were spotted at the cinema in London, watching the Cameron Diaz comedy Sex Tape, a choice that will have appealed to the mischievous sense of humour they share.

Wednesday's exhibition held at the Saatchi Gallery was to raise funds for Children & the Arts. The money will go to to the charity's hospice outreach programme, which provides arts activities for sick children and their families, which is coincidentally exactly the sort of project that the Duchess of Cambridge, née Kate Middleton, would support.

While Harry likes to make jokes about Prince William's parenting duties, it's clear that he would love to have a family of his own.

Most of his close circle are now married. His ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy is said to be close to an engagement and just this weekend he and William were at a wedding of their childhood friend Victoria Inskip and her fiancé Robert Davies-Jones. This follows another friend Charlie Gilkes' nuptials in Italy.
