The royal flew to Afghanistan in September
The royal has kept in regular touch with aristocrat Cressida, 24 – who he was first linked to in July – throughout his 4-month tour of Afghanistan, which he flew out for last month.
‘She’s perfect for Harry; loyal, romantic and calm,’ says a friend.
‘She and Harry are so funny together.’
Cressida was believed to have dumped Harry, 28, in August because she was ‘humiliated’ by published snaps of him playing strip billiards naked in Las Vegas.
But it seems she’s forgiven the helicopter pilot and can’t wait for him to return to the UK for R&R in a few weeks.
‘[The romance is] very much on,’ the insider tells the Sunday Express.
‘She’s not fazed by the whole royal girlfriend thing.’
