The Daily Mail this morning slips a knife between the ribs of Harry's new girlfriend Cressida Bonas, painting a picture of her as a wild party girl "quite resistant to full clothing" who is given to "glugging booze, groping half-naked men" and kissing her friends.
The Mail questions whehter this means she is destined to be "the new Fergie" - by which they presumably mean a chronic source of embarrasment to the Royal family for years to come.
In a masterpiece of inferral, the paper then lays responsibilty for the Harry / Cressida hook-up at the feet of Fergie and then goes on to question whether it's all basically a plot by Fergie to winkle her way back in to the Royal family's inner circle, saying that "Fergie is centre stage in this Royal romance" because "she is a friend of Cressida’s mother, Lady Mary Gaye Curzon, and Princess Eugenie introduced the couple ... Is this her way of pitching herself, and her daughters, back into the centre stage of the Royal Family?"
Admittedly, Fergie is ghastly, but it seems unlikely she is planning a throne-room coup led by Cressida.
The article is based around some fairly innocuous pictures published this week in British tabloid mag Now, which depict her drinking from a shot glass and - gasp - wearing bunny ears!
I know, how ever will the Royal family cope!
The Mail concludes that it is inevitable that Harry would fall for Cressida because he, "has a type — like his long-term ex-girlfriend Chelsy Davy, Cressida is a red-blooded, bohemian blonde who likes a drink and a fag and a knees-up."
Well, on that point, admittedly, we must concur.
