Not to be confused with the other blondes he has dated, Florence Brudenell-Bruce and Chelsy Davy. The boy has a type!

Anyway, Cressida is kind of an awkward name since there was once a car called a Toyota Cressida.

But that's OK, we'll let it go because Cressida is surprisingly awesome. She recently wore this to Glastonbury festival.

Sources say the couple met through his cousin, Eugenie.

And The Daily Mail reports that she is the half sister of Prince William's ex, Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, so she's royal-certified.

According to Vanity Fair, Cressida attended Stowe School and then Leeds University, where she studied dance.

While there, sources say she dated the Queen's cousin's stepson, Harry Wentworth-Stanley. Guess she has a thing for boys named Harry?

The prince and his girlie were first seen (but not photographed) together at the The Dark Knight Rises premiere, where apparently they were all over each other at the after-party.

And most recently, it was reported they were being pretty lovey-dovey at his uncle's birthday party. Where she apparently spent the evening on his lap.

And while it is still unclear what Cressida actually does, Tatler listed her as No. 7 on their list of "People Who Really Matter." That's one spot above Mick Jagger!

The only other thing that is important to know is that Cressy is so normal it's amazing.

She loves dressing up with friends...

...her sister, Pandora...

...and music festivals.

While she isn't as "princess ready" as mom-to-be Kate Middleton...

...she could really be any of us. Which is why we love her.

Cressie forever!
