Kate Middleton, Duchess Of Cambridge Supporting Cressida Bonas While Prince Harry's On South Pole Trek

21 November 2013

Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge has reportedly taken Prince Harry's girlfriend Cressida Bonas under her wing while the royal is on a charity trek to the South Pole. Harry left the UK last week and according to a new report the Duchess has grown close to the newest royal WAG as she struggles to cope with the separation.

While it was initially reported that Kate and Cressida weren't the best of friends, as Prince William once had a crush on Cressida's sister Isabella Branson, insiders have claimed now the blonde dancer is so serious with Harry, the Duchess is making an effort to get to know her.

“Cressida is so happy to have Kate on her side, especially now Harry’s almost uncontactable,” a source told LOOK Magazine.

After waiting over a decade to marry Prince William, Kate knows what it's like to be a royal girlfriend in the spotlight and is reportedly helping Cressida cope with the attention.

“Kate has made PR mistakes in the past too. I think she regrets not finding a job to settle down to before getting engaged to William – the ‘Waity Katie’ tag still haunts her today," the source went on.

“So Kate can talk to Cressy about that and also point out the attention she’d get if she carried on with the dancing," they explained, "Every time she put on a leotard to perform, the pictures would be splashed all over the world – and not for the right reasons.”

It's believed Cressida and Harry are so serious, the blonde socialite has sacrified her career as a dancer to take on a more royal friendly job.

Something the 24 year-old is said to be coming to terms with: “It’s an exciting time and although it’s sad that being a dancer has to be sacrificed, there will be so much she can still do."

With Kate's seal of approval it certainly seems like we could have another royal wedding on our hands!
