Yesterday, a striking beam of pain hit the hearts of the world, when Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas made a personal decision within their coupledom not to date anymore. Cressida, from the glimmers one could patch together, seemed like a blithe pinwheel. There was a pleasant cognitive dissonance that came with imagining denim overalls among the stodgy drapes and chinaware of Buckingham Palace. A loss of this Royal wonderment has passed, but in an attempt to fill the Cressida-gap in our lives, here is a short list of potential suitors for Prince Harry, sorted by wonderful Cressida-like qualities.
An unfettered free spirit: Shailene Woodley, who is America’s representative hippie, is the obvious choice.
An affection for overalls: Keira Knightley, who talks about them at length, and calls them dungarees.
A charming, fame-shy quality: the famous fame-avoider, you are a fascinating breed! Emma Watson walks that line well.
In sum: This list is actually just an ode to the irreplaceable Cressida Bonas, for combining all of these features is a wonder and a delight. Cressida, we hardly knew ye. Meanwhile, she has moved on and is ordering all the colorful beverages in London (an orange juice yesterday and today, a cup which runneth over of pink stuff).
