Since being named ex-royal, Cressida Bonas has been busy trying to convince people to call her anything but Prince Harry's former/maybe/not girlfriend. To that end, she's taken on a part in a play, secured a modeling contract, and been given a role as Mulberry's new muse. "I just hope the focus is becoming more about the skills I have," she said in today's London Times. She added, "My friends call me Cressie. I actually quite like being called my name but..." But it's just that "actress/dancer/tiara-rejecter" and "definitely single" has a much better ring to it, Cressie.
