  • The pair didn't arrive together, but they did sit together at the We Day event this morning

    Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas made a rare public appearance together in London this morning.

    The Prince, 29, spoke to an audience filled with 12,000 school children for the WE Day event on Thursday morning. Held at Wembley Arena, the event featured a variety of celebrity guests on hand to encourage the kids to get involved and join causes to help others around the world.

    Though Harry and Cressida (who began dating in 2012) did not walk the red carpet together, they did sit together once inside. Throughout the event, they looked cosy and comfortable (albeit a bit bored).

    Dressed casually in Koral high rise skinnies and silver trainers, Cressida, 25, instead arrived with her sister Isabella.

    They were also joined by Isabella’s husband, Sam Branson, whose father Sir Richard Branson’s company Virgin Atlantic helped sponsor the event.

    Ever the jokester, Harry kicked off his speech with a witty quip: ‘For those of you expecting Harry Styles, I apologise and, no, I’m not going to sing,’ he said.

    ‘I feel extremely privileged, and incredibly nervous, to be standing here in front of you today at the first WE day to be held in the UK. Free The Children is a fantastic organisation, founded on an inspiring principal – that children have the power to effect change.’

    We’d love to see Harry and Cressida make an actual red carpet appearance together – complete with couple’s posing and PDA. But, for now, we’ll take what we can get.

    Let’s hope the fact that she’s supporting her man at his official engagements is a sign of what’s to come.
