Say it ain’t so! People Magazine is reporting that Prince Harry and his boho style-loving girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, have broken up. The pair have been dating for over two years and those obsessed with all things royal (ourselves included!) were pretty sure that an engagement announcement was forthcoming.

Then again, remember when Prince William and Kate Middleton broke up in 2007? Their separation was short-lived and according to many, actually prompted the couple to decide they were meant to be. Coincidentally, today is the third anniversary of that royal wedding, so perhaps Harry was feeling the pressure to make things official? Or maybe Cressida—who we could never picture working a crowd in a sleek coat-dress the way Kate Middleton does so well—figured that a life spent kowtowing to the Queen is not the life for her. (There’s a lot of pressure that comes with being a princess!)

Or, third option: the source is wrong, and this breakup gossip is just a distraction. What’s your preference: Prince Harry walking down the aisle or Prince Harry on the prowl?
