The royal is thinking about settling down with his new girlfriend

Prince Harry is reportedly set to take over Prince William and Kate Middleton‘s weekend home in Kensington Palace when they move out with their baby this summer.

The royal is planning to leave his bachelor pad and give Nottingham Cottage a cosy makeover so he can stay in it with girlfriend Cressida Bonas.

Kate and William need somewhere bigger so the sensible plan is for Harry to take Nottingham Cottage,’ says a source.

Harry‘s old bachelor party was very small but the cottage is a brilliant size for two. It’s a perfect love nest.’

Harry, 28, and Cressida, 24, confirmed their romance by putting on a PDA during a skiing holiday in Verbier, Switzerland last week.

Dance student Cressida is said to want to take things slowly but Harry‘s friends reckon he’s keen to put his wild days behind him and is already thinking about settling down.

Harry has always worn his heart on his sleeve and falls in love very easily,’ an insider tells the Daily Star.

‘But I genuinely think he has started to hanker after something more.’
