Cressida, who graduated from a dance course earlier this year, has been thinking about changing to teaching – to allow a lower profile.
The couple were recently the subject of wedding rumours but last month her half-brother denied the pair were planning to tie the knot soon.
Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe said it was “ludicrous”.
Alexandra Chong, the CEO of dating app Lulu, got married over the weekend in Jamaica to her long-term boyfriend Jack Brockway.
It is understood they spent the weekend there with Cressida, 24, and her half sister, actress Isabella Calthorpe, 33, who is married to Sam.Harry, 29, stayed the night at the house, which Sir Richard gave to Sam and his sister Holly, 31, earlier this year after deciding to base himself on the Caribbean island of Necker – which he owns.
