“What’s the expression? How would I feel if the shoe was on the other foot and it was an ex talking about me?
“It feels like a long time ago, so when it comes up it feels strange because I’m in a very different place now – I’m getting married, I’ve learned a lot.”
She opened up about how dating Harry created “hurdles and barriers” in her career.
Cressida said: “No-one likes to be labelled, no matter what it is about or where they come from.”
