Following on from the Royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle in May, his former girlfriend Cressida has moved on to establish herself as a credible actress.
The 29-year-old dated Harry between 2012 and 2014, and will now star as a professional model known as Bambi in The White House Farm Murders.
The actress studied at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and has appeared in several plays.
Cressida will star alongside Freddie Fox who will play convicted killer Jeremy Bamber.
Harry’s former flame will appear for the duration of the six-part drama series.

Cressida previously noted that her connection to the royals may have held her acting career back after being “pigeonholed.”
She explained: “Especially in this country, I find that people are very quick to put you in a box or put you in a corner and think, ‘Oh well, you're that, so you must be that’.”
Finding the situation “incredibly frustrating”, Cressida will note that Meghan had to completely wave goodbye to future acting roles.
According to the Daily Mail, Cressida added: “It's incredibly frustrating, especially in the industry that I'm in.
“But you know, it is the way it is... it's making a stand and saying, ‘Actually no, this is who I am, and this is what I want to do’.”
