What's In A Name?
Cressida Bonas And Her Oddly Named Family
An amusing collage of facts about Harry's girlfriend, Cressida Bonas, in this month's issue of the ever-entertaining society rag Tatler.
The piece reveals that Cressida is nicknamed Smalls or Smally in her family, "because she’s the youngest of her large brood of siblings from her mother, sparky Sixties heartbreaker Lady MaryGaye Curzon."
Then follows an astonishingly British array of names as Tatler runs through her siblings:
There’s Pandora (the eldest of the lot at 40 and nicknamed Baba), who’s Cressy’s half-sister from her mother’s first marriage to the late Esmond Cooper-Key. Then there’s Georgiana, Isabella and Jacobi, three half-siblings from Mary-Gaye’s second marriage to businessman John Anstruther Gough-Calthorpe. Georgiana, or Giana, is 34, an artist and married to hedgefunder Robert Butler. Isabella – Bellie – is a 33-year-old actress and married to Sam Branson. And Jacobi, 30, is nicknamed Cozy. Then there’s 24-year-old actress Gabriella Wilde, or Bumpy (she was called Bumble Bee as a child).
