Prince Harry gets intimate with girlfriend in full public view
Prince Harry has taken society model Cressida Bonas on a skiing holiday to Verbier in Switzerland.
The third in line to the British throne is reportedly staying at the resort of Verbier with the dance student and Leeds University graduate, who celebrated her 24th birthday on Monday.
There were rumours their relationship had cooled while Harry completed a four month stint as an Apache helicopter pilot for the army in Afghanistan, but friends have dispelled this.
But that's not the case, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas seemed closer than ever in Verbier
They were photographed locked in a tight embrace on the slopes of the Verbier ski resort, Prince Harry and his society girlfriend Cressida Bonas seem to be in love.
The very public display of affection, in front of dozens of fellow skiers, came only a few hours after even more intimate revelries at a restaurant in the town.
It was not a wild night by Harry’s standards; no one was naked or wearing fancy dresses.
But fellow diners in the wee small hours at the Pot Luck Club restaurant in the resort’s Farinet Hotel were entertained by the sight of the Prince bouncing the 24-year-old blonde model and would-be actress on his knee.
The pair were said to have ‘kissed like love-struck teenagers in the back of a cinema’.
The other end of the same table was an altogether more sober affair. Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, whose 53rd birthday on Tuesday they were celebrating, sat with his ex-wife, Sarah, Duchess of York, and their two daughters, Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie.
A source told the Daily Express newspaper: "They are very much still together. She's a good skier. I think they all are in that set."
Also thought to be staying at the same resort are the prince's cousins, Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie.
Cressida - who is known as Smally by her family because she is the youngest of five - is an aspiring dancer who trained at the Royal Ballet School and went to Prior Park College in Bath on a sports scholarship.
She is currently studying Contemporary Dance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich.
She has already holidayed with Harry to Sir Richard Branson's Necker Island in the Caribbean, and has stood by him during the ordeal of his being pictured naked while holidaying in Las Vegas after a game of 'strip billiards', and the subsequent media storm.
