A real life fairy tale wedding?

Prince Harry was urged to MARRY Cheryl at the BT Sport Industry Awards – because it was his royal duty!

If marrying national treasures was the duty of every Prince, then he really does live in a fairy tale.

Host Mark Durden-Smith joked that Harry should pop the question to Cheryl, since she split from second husband Jena-Bernard Fernandez-Versini.

He said: ‘I know you take your royal duties very seriously Harry and I think one of the duties that the nation would like you to perform is to marry Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

‘It’s what the nation wants Harry so give it some thought.’
