So from royal babies to royal romances – that's right, our hopes of dating a royal have been dashed as the youngest Prince is off the market! Prince Harry was seen smooching his new girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, on a romantic ski holiday on the slopes of the Verbier in Switzerland.

Here are five things you need to know about the potential future Princess:

1. They met through his cuz Eugenie

The couple apparently have known each other for some time, making it easy for Prince Harry to dive into a new relationship. Their meet and greet happened through Princess Eugenie.

"They met through [Princess] Eugenie, who is friends with Cressida," a source told E! News.

"Cressida is really smart, very naturally pretty and just a really cool girl to hang out with. It's hard for Harry to date as there are so many opportunities out there, but Cressida is someone he knows he can trust as she is already in his circle. She's already passed the test of being discreet."

2. Her ma is Lady Mary-Gaye Georgiana Lorna Curzon

She is the daughter of Sixties cover girl Lady Mary-Gaye who has married and divorced four times. Lady Mary has five children with three of her husbands. Miss Bonas was the child of her third marriage, to Old Harrovian Jeffrey Bonas, which ended in divorce in 1994.

Lady Mary was one of the most glamorous débutantes in her day and appeared in a daring Sixties coffee table book 'Birds of Britain' posing half naked and covered in engine oil.

When asked in the summer about her daughter’s relationship with Harry, Lady Mary burst into giggles, “I’m sorry, I don’t know anything about it,’ she told Daily Mail.

3. Her half sis is engaged to Richard Branson's son

The gorgeous blonde is the half-sister of the beautiful 'How To Lose Friends & Alienate People' star Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe.

Bella will marry Richard Branson's son, Sam, in a few weeks time.

Isabella was also said to have caught the Duke of Cambridge’s eye during his separation from the then Kate Middleton. Don't think our Duchess will be too happy about this development.

4. She dances

She went to £30,000-a-year Stowe School in Buckingham before studying dance at Leeds University, the place where Harry's ex Chelsy Davy graduated. He has definitely has a type!

She's sure to be a party gal and will be able to delight the Prince with a few saucy moves.

Bonas goes out on the odd occasion, as one close friend told Daily Mail, “She hangs out with her brothers and sisters. They are extremely close. She and her friends spend their time going to the Sadler’s Wells dance theatre."

"Commuting means she gets home late to West London from her dance studies at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich, so she rarely goes out midweek. At weekends, she will go partying or travel to Norfolk to see her dad.”

5. Used to date Harry Wentworth-Stanley

The dancing queen was in a relationship with the stepson of the Marquess of Milford Haven (George Milford Haven), who is a cuz of the Queen. Cressida and the 'other Harry' got together when they were students at Leeds University but reportedly cooled their romance after graduation. 

“Cressida is still very fond of her ex-boyfriend and, since Harry’s been on the scene, he’s been after her again,” one of her friends told Mandrake.

“Cressida is torn. She likes Harry but is not the sort to be bothered about his title.”

Wow what a crazy web this girl has with Harry's life!
