What happens to Cressida Cowper in season 1?

Cressida Cowper is a young lady who debuted in the social season with her mother.

The debutante was also among those delighted when Prince Friedrich of Prussia came to visit London.

When he appeared at his first social event, she immediately approached him and swooned in the presence of the Prince.

The pair danced together at a few events and it looked like Cressida might actually have a chance at marrying Prince Friedrich.

However, someone else caught the Prince’s eye.

When the Prince and Daphne Bridgerton started courting, Cressida was overcome with jealousy.

Eventually, she caught Daphne and the Duke alone together and blackmailed Daphne into leaving the Prince alone.

Does Cressida marry the prince?

Towards the end of season 1, Prince Friedrich doesn’t marry anyone and instead returns home to Prussia.

This leaves Cressida still without a husband, which means that she’ll be actively looking for more eligible suitors in the second season.
