Cressida Bonas looked casually chic at a film screening in London this evening that was also attended by socialite, model and DJ Lady Mary Charteris.
Prince Harry’s ex-girlfriend was able to take an evening off parenting to make an appearance at the special screening and Q&A of Hilma at the Curzon Soho.
Actor Cressida welcomed her son Wilbur James, who she shares with her husband Harry Wentworth-Stanley, 33, last year after the pair married in 2020.
The 34-year-old looked effortlessly cool at the screening, epitomising off-duty actor style in mid wash blue jeans and a royal blue jumper.
She topped her ensemble with a black blazer-cut jacket and a crossbody black handbag. Her blonde locks fell past her shoulders in loose waves, and she sported a natural make-up look.

Also photographed at the event was Lady Mary Charteris, the daughter of James Charteris, Earl of Wemyss and March and his first wife Catherine Ingrid Guinness, of the Guinness dynasty.
The 35-year-old, who was once known as a wild party girl but has been sober for several years, donned a two-piece purple suit, boasting a blazer with a fashion-forward oversized cut, and wide legged trousers. Underneath the suit, she wore a cropped black top, with a high neck.
Mary, who has modelled for the likes of Tatler, Vanity Fair, Vogue and Love, highlighted her lean stomach with a black ribbon tied around her waist.
Her jewellery was a focal point of the ensemble, with multiple necklaces of varying lengths, featuring different pendants, layered over each other.
It is not known whether Mary was accompanied by her musician husband Jessie Furze, with whom she lives in LA, and shares one child – Wild Jessie Furze who was born in May, 2021.
Tonight’s event featured a screening of the film Hilma, which had its premiere at the end of last year, followed by a Q&A session.
The film was directed by Lasse Hallström, Hilma, and is a drama depicting the life of enigmatic artist Hilma af Klint, one of the first to utilise the abstract idea.
Starring Tora Hallström as Hilma’s younger incarnation, the film also features Lily, Catherine Chalk and Rebecca Calder.

Cressida’s appearance at tonight’s screening marked one of the few times she has been snapped without her son Wilbur James since he was born last year.
The touching story behind Wilbur’s name was recently revealed, with reports saying the child was named after the late brother of her husband.
Harry’s brother James died by suicide in 2006, when he was just 21-years-old.
Cressida has previously opened up about the impact of James’ passing, last year writing in the Daily Mail that his death had turned the lives of her future in-laws ‘upside down’.
‘He was a student at Newcastle University and, growing up, he had never shown any obvious signs of depression or mental illness,’ she wrote.

‘He was fun, sporty, kind and popular. Many have said he was a golden boy.
‘Following a minor operation, he sought help for anxiety and suicidal thoughts. Later that week, while back in Newcastle, James went to an NHS walk-in centre and was then referred to A&E as a low priority.
‘James left A&E without being seen. A letter was sent from the NHS to his family GP by second-class post to the wrong postcode.
‘By the time it arrived, James had already taken his own life, ten days after the operation.’
His family vowed to do something to help others avoid similar tragedies and formed a charity, James’ Place, which supports, advises and helps men in suicidal crises with individual therapy.
