As Prince Harry takes Australia by storm, rumours are swirling in London that he’s getting set to tie the knot with girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
"Cressie is going to marry Harry," one of her friends told London’s The Telegraph. "Harry never stops talking about marriage and children, and she has now got used to the idea. The wedding is likely to take place next year."
The man labelled "the party prince" is certainly smitten by the waifish 24-year-old, but sources say she has so far felt too young to marry.
"Cressida has been in floods of tears,” one of her friends claimed. "Harry is coming on very strong, but she is all over the place. She thinks she is far too young to get married and is scared by all his talk of marriage and settling down."
But it seems Harry’s persistence has paid off, and the pair is closer than ever (someone better tell Tony Abbott’s daughters).
Her family, which has direct links to Edward VII, is a bit on the bohemian side, which apparently appeals to the Prince. (Her mother is 1960s ‘It Girl’ Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, and her half-sister Isabella, to whom she is very close, recently married Richard Branson’s son Sam.)
More interestingly for us, before going to university to study dance, Bonas spent a year working in an Aussie bar. No word on whether Harry popped in for a visit.
