Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are said to be growing more serious and insiders claim an engagement is imminent.

Harry, 29, began dating Bonas, who is a dance student, in May 2012 after being introduced by his cousin, Princess Eugenie. The royal heir is rumored to have turned to his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William recently for advice about marriage.

"There is a family gathering to discuss an engagement ... The announcement will be sooner than many people think," an alleged source told the Daily Mail UK.

"Harry and Cressida will be married. It is all going ahead. It is just a matter of time," the insider revealed.

The couple were recently photographed embracing at the WE Day UK youth event at Wembley Arena, where Harry, once dubbed the "party prince," gave the keynote speech. Insiders claim he is now ready to settle down and that Bonas is set to meet Queen Elizabeth II at Balmoral this Summer.

"It is the talk of the estate," a source said of Bonas' plans to visit the Queen's Scottish retreat.

The British socialite, 24, is the daughter of 1960s society beauty, Lady Mary Gaye Curzon and her third husband, Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas.

Last year Jacobi Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, who is the 30-year-old DJ brother of Bonas, expressed concern about the media scrutiny that she is subject to due to her involvement with Harry, who is fourth-in-line to the British throne. He also slammed recurring wedding reports as "ludicrous."

"Cressida is not a tough cookie at all. She's a very sensitive, sweet girl. It's challenging, you can't deny it. It's not something that is easy for anyone dating a royal or marrying into the Family," Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe told London's Evening Standard.

"On some level it is different to any other type of fame. It's an invasion of privacy, which is hard," he continued. "There are people who court that but when you spend your life hiding from it, I think that becomes very exhausting. I think it's a very difficult thing."
