Cressida and Harry (taken in 2017)
Harry Wentworth Stanley, associate director of realtor Savills, is Milford Stanley, a debonair Old Etonian who received the title from his second marriage to Harry’s stepfather, the King. He is the son of Claire, Marchiones of Heaven. Marquess of Milford Haven.
Before his relationship with his current wife became official, Harry was dashingly handsome, 6ft 4in tall and considered one of London’s most eligible bachelors.
He inherited his looks from his mother, Claire, a beauty who remains beautiful.He had an older brother, James, who was four years older, and a younger sister, Louisa. His mother and his father divorced when Harry was a child. In 1997, Claire married the Queen’s cousin, George, Marquess of Milford Haven, with whom she was divorced with two children.
The family settled at Great Trippett on 1,000 acres of land in the Sussex Downs. Life was perfect for a while. Claire remained on good terms with her ex-husband, Nick Wentworth Stanley, and married Dutch beauty Millie Brenningmeyer, with whom she has three more children.
Shortly before Christmas 2006, the Duke and Duchess and their children stayed at the Nick and Duchess’ home in Worcestershire. Harry’s older brother, James, was recovering from a relatively minor procedure. The surgery was a success, but James became very anxious in the days that followed.

One evening, the family discovers that James has committed suicide. They were devastated by tragedy.
Claire was devastated by her son’s suicide. In an interview 18 months after James’ death, she said, “For other children, you have to set an example. If you are strong, it gives them permission to be strong. If the falls to a bit, they will.

“The day after James died, his brother Harry said his greatest fear was that it would destroy me, and that would destroy everything else. I felt important.
In his memory, his family founded James Place, a suicide prevention charity for men, which now operates centers in London and Liverpool.
The couple had a serious relationship when they were students at the University of Leeds. The couple were known to the crowd as “Watercress” for reasons that are not entirely clear. After graduating, the romance faded in 2011 when they took off for a gap year in Argentina.
Friends had previously said that when another Harry (Prince Harry himself) started chasing her in the summer of 2012 and the romance began, Cressida hadn’t quite ended Harry. We had a game, a ski trip and a cozy night at Kensington Palace.
However, the couple split in 2014 after spending three years together.
The following year, Harry Wentworth Stanley and Cressida were photographed on a Valentine’s Day date, but their relationship became official in 2017.
Last August, Harry proposed while on a trip to the US, and the couple’s smiles in the Instagram announcement told their followers everything they needed to know about their love for one another.
