By the looks of it, Prince Harry is ready to settle down.

An insider tells E! News that the young royal is getting serious with his girlfriend Cressida Bonas and that the two are definitely talking marriage.

"Seeing Prince William and Kate [Middleton] get married and settle down has had a real effect on Harry," the source explained. "He's just seen how happy they are and he's realized that he wants that too."

And it appears that his feelings are being matched by his leading lady as well.

Bonas is "very much up for getting more serious," the source added. "They want to remain very much as they are—with a private life away from the cameras. For now they want to enjoy as much time together before the seriousness of their relationship becomes public with announcements."

Sources close to the 29-year-old prince say that he and Bonas are "basically live with each other these days and are rarely out of each other's sights."

"This is it for them both," another pal explains. "He hasn't proposed yet, but it's only a matter of time."

Friends close to the redheaded royal are apparently taken aback by how quickly things have turned serious between the two.

"At one point it seemed like he wasn't over his ex Chelsy [Davy], but now he's fully all about Cressida. He says he wants her to be his wife—this is it."

The pal added, "Things will start happening sooner rather than later. Harry's found his girl. It's taken everybody very much by surprise."

Things seem to be moving faster than ever after the two were spotted attending the Glastonbury Music Festival together in June.

Harry is said to be "very serious about their future together" and are heading towards walking down the aisle—possibly even as early as late summer next year.

We can't wait to see another royal wedding!
