The world has been waiting for Prince Harry to propose to his current girlfriend but friends say they’re preparing for him to dump her.

Harry, 29, and Cressida Bonas, 24, have been forced to spend several weeks apart in the past few months and their once red-hot romance is said to be fizzling out.

“Talk of Harry and Cressida getting married could not be further from the truth,” an insider told the Daily Mirror newspaper.

“Indeed it wouldn’t be a surprise if they go their separate ways soon. It is actually Harry who has been moving on.

“He’s incredibly fond of Cressida and loves her company but has commitments and plans in other areas of his life that could be jeopardised by settling down. It’s not what he wants at this time of his life.”

Harry and Cressida have been dating for around 19 months but they haven’t seen much of each other in recent weeks. Harry was trekking in the Antarctic for four weeks late last year and they spent Christmas apart because girlfriends aren’t invited to the Queen’s official festive celebrations in Sandringham.

Shortly after Christmas, Cressida flew out to the Caribbean with her half-sister Isabella Calthorpe to enjoy some sunshine, meaning she and Harry weren’t together for New Year’s Eve either.

They flew out to Switzerland for a brief ski break last week, but are now back in London.
