Cressida turned out earlier this month to support Harry at an official engagement for the first time. The couple sat next to each other and embraced at the launch of the WE Day UK young people's charity event at Wembley Arena where the Prince made a speech.

The couple were seen two days later watching England play Wales in a Six Nations rugby match at Twickenham.
