Could Cressida Bonas be getting an early Christmas present? The 24-year-old socialite who has captured the prince’s heart could soon become a member of the royal family, sources are saying.
A royal insider tells Closer, “As far as Harry is concerned, Cressida is the woman he plans to make his wife and princess. There is no question about it. He intends to marry her.”
The blonde beauty, who is an avid athlete, appears to embody everything that the prince wants in a partner. “Harry wants a wife who is as fun loving as him, is very sporty, gets his cheeky sense of humour and won’t be offended by his flirty, charming manner with other women,” shares the insider. “He doesn’t want someone who will try and change him.”
Bonas, whose half-sister Isabella is married to Richard Branson’s son, is used to life in the spotlight. Her mother is heir to a large banking fortune and her BFF is none-other than Princess Eugenie. But although she grew up in London’s high-society, “Cressida isn’t your typical aristocrat who is into hunting and fishing and countryside pursuits,” the source says. “Harry likes that she’s quirky.”
If anyone has any doubts on whether the playboy prince is ready to settle down, look no further than his recent trip to Australia. The 29-year-old was on his best behavior, even declining a drink at a reception held in his honor. “There was champagne and beer going around, and lots of the guests were drinking, but Harry said no,” an onlooker said.
So when does the duo plan to walk down the aisle? It could be as early as next year, according to the insider! “If Harry has his way, they would be married by the end of 2014.”
