The "outing" of William and Kate on the ski slopes, was in March 2004. I believe they started dating in 2003.

What the previous poster said. They were first spotted together on a ski trip just like Harry and Cressida. Apparently the mountains are a perfect place to caught some royal dating action.:)

They never went public until they got engaged. There was never any official confirmation they were dating.

Just a lovely bunch of photos. Rather like right now with Harry. But who needs confirmation when you've got photos. Lots of photos. :)

How were they open about dating then? They were pictured on the slopes stood next to each other. The official first "hug" was about the closest we got to them being open about dating. We saw the pictures, yes and we assumed they were together. But they were never open about dating to the press.

Rather have confirmation then photos, then we'd leave them alone.

Here you go:

1. The pair reportedly started dating last May after being introduced by Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie. Apparently the romance cooled off during the Prince's naked photo scandal when pictures emerged from Vegas.

2. She is the daughter of Lady Mary Gaye Curzon, a British "It" girl from the 1960s and the heir to the Curzon banking fortune.

3. Her mother has five children with four different men, all of whom she is divorced from.

4. Her father is Jeffrey Bonas, an "entrepreneur and businessman".

5. Coincidentally she studied at the Leeds University, the same school which Prince Harry's last long-term girlfriend, Chelsy Davy attended graduating from the elite Stowe School, where boarding students pay $46,000 a year

6. Bonas is not the first person in her family with ties to royalty. Her older half-sister is Isabella Gough-Calthorpe, a British movie star, a rumoured former flame of Prince William, and fiancé of Richard Branson's son Sam.

7. Prior to hooking up with the prince, Bonas used to date Harry Wentworth-Stanley, whose stepfather is a cousin to the Queen, according to The Mirror.

8. "Cressida is really smart, very naturally pretty and just a really cool girl to hang out with," a friend told E! Online. "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."

9. The couple first set tongues wagging in July, when they spent some cozy one-on-one time together after the Dark Knight Rises premiere

10. Bonas appears at 27 on The Tatler List - a list of “all the people who matter” according to the upmarket mag.

11. Harry and Bonas also flew together to the Caribbean island of Necker last summer for Sam Branson's birthday.

12. She is now studying contemporary dance at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in Greenwich.

IMO, they were open about dating. They've been photographed kissing, holding hands and hugging a few times. They've celebrated birthdays and went on holidays together. She was also his guest to his graduation ceremonies and his induction into the Order of the Garter.

Clarence House was never going to announce that they were officially together (just like they won't announce Harry and Cressida's relationship), so seeing them out together/sharing significant moments is the closest we ever got to an announcement.

Hey now people can say her mother is a social-climber, she knew Chelsy was going to that university, she knew they ll have an affair ad then they will break up, then she can have a chance...
But then her mother must be much busier than Carole, minding 4 marriages and 5 kids..

LOL. Or they will say she is not suitable because of her mother's past. Or that she is just as lazy as Kate was. Or any number of things...unfortunately.

Hey why doesnt anyone of these royal/noble people read some "real" subjects/courses at university? Its always history of art, history of thought, contemporary dance, medival drama..
I am just asking generally? Is it just these Hooray Henry(ietta)s or even normal people also do so? Do they have a decent career for these courses in UK?

You know when I think about it, maybe it's just that they don't have to worry about money so they can't get degrees in things that interest them and start up some new business or a dance studio or something. When you've got money you don't have to worry about paybacks, careers, or doing something practical or think about how you're going to feed you kids and what careers is best suited for that. You can do what you want. Then again I know a million (figuratively) people who have business degrees or psychology degrees and don't necessarily used that degree. Most average people don't have the same liberties to do what they please.

I wouldn't be getting the degree I'm getting if not for the need for a stable income. Oh...it would be awesome to not have the kind of responsibilities income wise that I have. :)

I believe the Royal relationship can be considered officially confirmed after Miss Bonas be introduced to the Queen, like Chelsy was at Peter's wedding, in 2008.

Charles studied anthropology, archaelogy and history at Cambs, plus spending some ogf the time studying Welsh history and language and Edward Wessex has a History degree. Eugenie has a combined degree in English literature and History of Art. So its not all bad!

Yeah, but, IMO, it's as close of "officially confirmed" as can be. =D

Yeah I would say its a sign of approval as well. Like "Hey, you can seal the deal now!" But then if you look at Chelsy, the broke up... :/

Regardless for those people who want royals to marry other royals or aristocrats or whatever, she fits the bills. How would you say her name anyway?
