Prince Harry introduces his girlfriend to his dad - do we hear wedding bells?
Now’s learnt the banking heiress – known as Cressie to pals – has met his dad Prince Charles.
Harry, 28, has grown close to Cressida, 24, in recent months, so he decided to make things formal
by getting his father’s seal of approval.
Our source reveals: ‘Harry knew he needed a nod from his dad so that people would take them seriously as a couple.
‘He was understandably nervous, but he asked Charles if they could meet over a “kitchen supper” – an informal, simple meal.
‘It was the least pressurised setting he could think of.’
The rendezvous happened earlier this month at Clarence House in London before Charles went skiing in Klosters.
And according to our source, things couldn’t have gone better.
We’re told: ‘Charles was really taken with Cressie.
‘He thought she was bubbly, well mannered and a natural beauty – something he truly appreciates.
‘Charles made it clear that she had his approval – so much so that he asked if they wanted to join him on his ski trip.
‘Cressie couldn’t as she had commitments in London, but she was thrilled to be asked.’
