Britain's Prince Harry is all set to marry his girlfriend Cressida Bonas, reported The Telegraph.

The party-loving prince apparently wants to settle down to marital bliss, taking cue from his older brother William who has a two-and-half month old son with Kate Middleton.

"Cressie is going to marry Harry," Cressida's friend told the publication. "Harry never stops talking about marriage and children, and she has now got used to the idea. The wedding is likely to take place next year."

The daily went to say that Cressida was initially scared by talks of marriage but is now ready for it. "Cressida has been in floods of tears," one of her friends claimed. "Harry is coming on very strong, but she is all over the place. She thinks she is far too young to get married and is scared by all his talk of marriage and settling down." 

Harry, 29, reportedly came to know Cressida, 24, through his cousin Princess Eugenie in May 2012. The Mirror reported that the duo started dating in the summer of 2012 before they were separated in November, when Harry was sent to serve in Afghanistan for 20 weeks. Their relationship blossomed after he returned home.

"Harry looked smitten. Verbier is a busy place, but he didn't care who saw them cuddling. He certainly seems to have put his recent escapades in Afghanistan behind him," an onlooker told the Mirror. 

Cressida studied dance at Leeds University and graduated from the Trinity Laban Conservatoire. She is the daughter of businessman Jeffrey Bonas and Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon, the daughter of sixth Earl Howe.
