Whose royal wedding, you wonder? Obviously the usual suspects, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas! But, commoners, don't put on the fascinators and Alexander McQueen dresses just yet. There've been engagement rumors surrounding these two since they were first photographed together last Februrar.y
Stiil, a recent report claims that the world's hottest ginger, 29, has already popped the question to Cressy, 25. (In this hypothetical-but-possible situation, she said yes--as would any woman on earth.) Now, unnamed sources say the couple needs to go through "certain royal protocols, such as asking his grandmother's permission" before formally announcing this joyous news.
Again, don't start ringing the wedding bells just yet, but her are five signs Harry and Cressy might be getting closer to having their own special day at Westminster Abbey.
1.They're Cool With Casual: Not casual in the no-strings-attached, non-regal way that comes to mind, but casual in the "I-don't-need-a-blowout-and-L.K.-Bennett-nude-pumps" comfortable sense. Just last month they hit up a burger joint in Kensington, and they were all sorts of adorable at Glastonbury music festival last summer. Married life (and soon-to-be-married life) doesn't need to always include the fanciness and frills of a formal date!
2.Cressy Looks Good in a Crown: When the blue-blooded blond beauty attended a society wedding in December, she wore a crown of flowers and looked very much like a princess. She also brought the scrunchie back en vogue (earning her a nickname of the anti-Kate in certain fashion circles). And regardless of your stance on hair ties, you've got to give credit where credit is due on that one. Royally impressive!
3: Harry Now Works Closer to Home: His future plans are no longer up in the air! He worked over three years as an Apache helicopter pilot and completed his attachment to 3 Regiment Army Air Corps this January. Now, Harry's taken up a staff officer role in London which means he no longer has to deploy and be separated from Cressida! Party at the palace?
4. Cressy's Already in the Inner Circle: The royals and their pals are a pretty tight-knit group, but when Cress started dating Harry, she was already well established and royal-approved. In fact, Princess Eugenie is Cressida's BFF and reportedly the one who introduced her to Harry.
5. Prince George Needs a Playmate: Well, maybe Will and Kate's son doesn't need a playmate, but he certainly would enjoy having a cousin close in age! Harry sees that his brother's happily ever after is well underway, so the thought of settling down is probably becoming more and more tempting to the playboy prince. Cressy's sister Isabella Calthorpe married Sam Branson last March,and after spending some time with them over the holidays, she's definitely seeing how lovely married life can be.
All in good time...
