Rumour has it that Prince Harry is on the verge of proposing to his girlfriend, PA and socialite Cressida Bonas. A sure sign of this is that the young royal has recently met her father for the first time and apparently asked his permission for Cressy’s hand in marriage? Could it be true? We certainly hope so!

Prince Harry has met his girlfriend Cressida Bonas’s father for the first time – we’re hoping this means wedding bells in the near future!

The 29-year-old Prince may be taking part in a 200-mile South Pole Allied Challenge charity trek at the moment – a long way away from his girlfriend who seems like she is having a lovely old time without him in London – but apparently Hazza met up with Cressy’s entrepreneur dad for the first time before his trip!

According to Grazia magazine, Harry and Jeffrey bonded over the weekend with a couple of games of golf. We want to know how Jefferz felt about putting with a Royal! We’re guessing it became fairly competitive!

An insider source revealed: “It seems that Harry and Cressida have spoken about marriage, he wanted to do the honourable thing and meet her father to let Jeffrey know his intentions before he went to the South Pole.”

Harry is certainly showing he’s a good guy at the moment – he is aiming to raise £2m for charity with his trek – though he probably could have gotten this by delving into his piggy bank!

The source continued: “It’s always scary meeting your girlfriend’s father, but Harry knows how close Cressida is to her family.

“He wants to ensure they’re on-board for when they announce an engagement.”

The couple, who have been together for 18 months now, have reportedly been spending a great deal of time at Cressy’s aunt's house, and supposedly it was at Lady Charlotte Curzon's country home that Harry met his (possible) future father-in-law.

The source added: “They get on really well and enjoyed a few games of golf. Harry had ‘the chat’ with Jeffrey and tentatively asked for his daughter’s hand in marriage.

"Jeffrey gave his blessing for when the time is right.”

Eek, exciting! The couple do certainly seem to be getting serious, as they went skiing together back in January, and Cressy spent the weekend at Sandringham in October, giving her the symbolic Royal nod of approval as it is thought she met Prince Charles and Camilla there during her stay.

It definitely seems that Harry is serious about her, but he didn’t pop the question to his girlfriend of seven years Chelsy Davy, so will Cressy be much different?

What do you think? Do you think Harry and Cressida will be taking a walk down that aisle any time soon? Tweet us @sofeminineUK
