By Sanetra Richards

Prince Harry is back on the market! According to, after a two year relationship, the Prince and girlfriend Cressida Bonas have separated . . . for now. “They’re off, but I don’t think it’s for good,” said a source to Us. “They hit a rocky patch and this decision is the result of that. Harry is the type to want to take breathers and then try again.” A Kensington Palace spokesman went on to say, “We never comment on private lives.” The pair met when Prince Harry’s cousin Princess Eugenie of York, also the 25-year-old socialite’s friend, introduced the two and they hit it off by July 2012. Despite the breakup, the two have remained friends: “It’s very sad that they have decided to split. It’s very amicable, but they have decided to go their separate ways,” says a Bonas family source.

Cupid’s Advice:

Many former couples have a theory that there is no possibly way to end a relationship and be somewhat friendly to one another. It is far from easy! Subtract the hard feelings, irreconcilable differences, and that specific mentality and you will have the answer to keeping the breakup cordial. Cupid has a few tips to help you and your ex even things out and remain pleasant:

1. No harboring: Do not hold on to all of the negative things that happened in your relationship. You cannot expect to make progress individually and as an ex-couple if the past is constantly taunting you. Remember, heartbreak and anger is not a part of your closet’s wardrobe!
