Cressida Bonas and Prince Harry may have been rumoured to not be spending Christmas together, but Cressida will allegedly be joining the red headed royal for a special festive dinner this evening (December 27), according to new reports.
Harry and his 25-year-old other half are said to be both attending an organised "informal" party at the Queen's Norfolk estate tonight, alongside princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who both introduced Harry to Cressida.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "This is really important for Cressy. She and Harry have been dating over a year now and he is really serious about her.
"He missed her like crazy when he was away at the South Pole and couldn't wait to see her.

The source added: "Many of the senior royals will have left Sandringham so it will be low key, but Cressy's invite to this dinner party is significant and should be seen as a major step for her.
"She is a great influence on him and they are very much in love."
Cressida is said to have spent Christmas with her father Jeffrey and stepmother Penelope at their family estate, which is close to Sandringham.
