Cressida Bonas' Cheerleading Past: Prince Harry's Girlfriend's Racy Part in U.K. TV Drama Trinity

Before she was Prince Harry's main lady, Cressida Bonas was a racy cheerleader on TV.

A few photos from the 24-year-old's appearance on a U.K. television show Trinity hit the Internet today, which doesn't sound like much of a big deal, until you hear what the series was all about.

Baring her midriff and parading in a Superman cheerleading uniform, Bonas played one of the women who offered up sexual favors to win votes for a university election campaign, also appearing in a scene where a group of female students were escorted into a bedroom full of young men.

As appealing as the 2009 drama may sound, Trinity was axed after its first season because of ratings.

Bonas can actually act, though, and played Desdemona in a university production of Othello. One critic described her portrayal of the defiant character as having "a playful, almost childish confusion that convinced the audience she had not deserved the fate she was dealt," while another reviewer hailed her performance "particularly strong."

However, the future royal has maintained a relatively low profile since her days onscreen and onstage, spending her time with friends (like BFF Princess Eugenie) and love Prince Harry, of course.
