Earlier this month, The Telegraph reported that another royal wedding might be imminent, as Prince Harry, 29, and girlfriend Cressida Bonas, 24, grow closer and closer.

"Cressie is going to marry Harry," a source close to Bonas 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."

But although no official word of an impeding marriage has been announced, everyone's clamoring to know more about Harry's potential princess.

The two were introduced in mid-2012 by Princess Eugenie (Harry's cousin and Cressida's friend), and have been friendly ever since. In fact, The Telegraph claims the pair stayed in constant contact while Harry was away in Afghanistan from September 2012 through January 2013.

The publication also notes that Cressida (or Cressie, as her friends call her) was initially apprehensive about her relationship with Harry, who came on strong and frequently discussed marriage. More recently, however, another source told E! Online that Cressida is now "very much up for getting more serious," and that she and Harry "want to enjoy as much time together before the seriousness of their relationship becomes public with announcements."

Also according to E! Online, Cressida is very athletic — having once earned a sports scholarship and later taking up dance and tennis — and she's also been known to act and sing. These qualities, along with her free-spirited ways and love of partying, might just be why Harry's had his eye on her.

"They are quite perfect for each other," a family friend added to People.com.

What do you think? Do you see another royal engagement on the horizon?
