Prince Harry is reportedly planning a romantic holiday for himself and girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
The notoriously private couple are rarely photographed together and have kept the media guessing over the future of their relationship.
But this is apparently down to a fiercely protective Harry, who's keen to protect his girlfriend from the spotlight.
Harry is currently in Luanda, Angola, working with landmine charity The HALO Trust, but is planning an African adventure with Cress for when he's finished.
It's believed the pair will travel to an exclusive resort in Botswana, where they will join friends including Prince Harry's cousin, Princess Eugenie.
Harry is aware of just how sensitive his 24-year-old girlfriend is to the media scrutiny that comes with dating a royal.
A friend told The Mirror: "He’s taking it week by week with Cressy, trying to keep her out of the limelight.
"They are very close but Harry is doing all he can not to put her under pressure."
The pal explained that behind closed doors the couple act very differently to anywhere where they may be caught out on camera.
They added: "They meet at friends’ houses and it’s a full-on romance.
"But Harry is aware that Cressida doesn’t enjoy being in the spotlight - it freaks her out a bit.
"He’s hoping the African trip with friends will enable them to relax and get to know each other better."
They have enjoyed a number of breaks together including a friend's wedding and Glastonbury festival.
But this will be one of the first times they will be able to fully relax away from the media.
