Stop the presses, alert the media, pour one out: Prince Harry might be getting engaged. That's what some fairly credible(-ish) reports are suggesting, though the palace has not yet provided confirmation. News broke yesterday that the little prince is planning on asking Cressida Bonas for her hand in marriage. The Telegraph reports that, according to a friend of hers, "Cressida is going to marry Harry." A pal of Harry's came forward to back up the statement saying, "Harry never stops talking about marriage and children, and she has now got used to the idea." He went on to boldly lay claim that, "The wedding is likely to take place next year."
Ladbrokes, an online betting website, reports that 8 out of 11 people believe the couple will be engaged before the year is out (because apparently people bet on these sorts of things). People are also under the belief that the wedding will take place sometime in 2015. Jessica Bridge, Ladbrokes' PR executive told People: "The more the couple are pictured together, the more punters are parting ways with their cash over Prince Harry popping the question this year."
With no official news yet, the time for celebration will have to wait. Stay tuned, though! We reached out to the palace for comment, and we'll update when we hear back. (People)
