What seemed like a relationship that had us destined to speculate about another royal wedding has reportedly ended: Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida Bonas have split.

The redheaded royal and the free-spirited model have ended their two-year relationship, People reported Tuesday.


"He found her too needy and it just wasn't working out," a source told the mag.

Ouch, your highness.

Britain's Telegraph also weighed in, with its "well-placed sources" noting that the pair had struggled with the scrutiny that comes with being in the public eye.

"The relationship has certainly at least paused for a breather," a source said. "It is virtually impossible to have a successful romance and relationship in the full glare of the world's media."

But doesn't that come with the dating-a-royal territory?

Still, the statement implies that things might not be over for good, the newspaper said, offering up the fact that Harry's older brother, Prince William, and his wife, Catherine, duchess of Cambridge, also split a few times before finally tying the knot exactly three years ago.

However, it's unclear when and if Harry and Bonas might rekindle their romance.

"It's impossible to say because I don't think the two of them know either," the source added.  

Harry, 29, fourth in line for the British throne, was introduced to Bonas in May 2012 by his cousin Princess Eugenie. The pair had been dating for nearly two years, and things seemed to be heating up as of late.

In October, rumors had royal wedding bells practically clanging. In March, the pair packed in the PDA at various events, and Bonas marked her debut at one of Harry's official engagements when she appeared at a We Day event where he was giving a speech.

Bonas, 24, a socialite from a wealthy banking family, recently completed a postgraduate program in dance studies at London's Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, People reported.

On Tuesday, Harry continued with his royal duties despite the breakup reports.

The prince met with wounded service personnel who are competing for a place on the British Armed Forces team for the Invictus Games, which will take place in London in September.

"I have seen how powerful sport is as a means of rebuilding confidence as well as aiding with physical rehabilitation," he said. 

"These men and women are fighters by nature," he continued. "The intense physical training and competitive spirit that will be forged inside this team as they prepare to represent their country in the Invictus Games will, I hope, go some way to helping the recovery not only of those who hope to be selected here today, but also inspire others along the way."
