Royal insiders have stated that Prince Harry will propose to Cressida Bonas before the end of the year, although I’m a little more doubtful on that timeline. If Prince William hadn’t gotten married to Kate Middleton and just had a baby boy with her, then I’m sure there would have been more pressure on Harry to get married, and he might have to follow through. Right now, all the pressure’s lifted, and he’s probably thinking about how many more years he has left to party – I guarantee that getting married is probably one of the last things on his mind.
A British tabloid explains [via The Daily Mail], “The way it’s looking now people close to Harry and Cressida predict an engagement by the end of the year and a spring wedding. Cressida is The One. People have heard Harry talking about how special Cress is and about getting engaged.”
Although the report also adds that Kensington Palace is getting ready for an engagement, the palace reps declined to comment [what a surprise!], instead saying it’s a private matter.
Anyway, I’m laughing at Cressida being ‘the one’ and all that. I’m sure the royals find her more acceptable than his previous girlfriend, Chelsy Davy, who seemed like she was either perpetually drunk or partying. But Harry doesn’t seem like he’s ever gotten fully over her, right? And it seems more like Cressida is what he’s settling with because he has no other options. They’re not going to let him marry Chelsy and even if they did, she wouldn’t want to. Cressida, on the other hand, would be willing to accept royal protocols and it would save the royals a lot of embarrassment if Harry asked Cressida.
So will they get engaged? We’ll have to wait a couple more months to find out, but if Harry is getting married, it’s probably because has has no other choice in the matter. However, I still say that it won’t happen so soon.
