Things seems to be getting pretty serious between Prince Harry and his girlfriend Cressida Bonas, and it seems the relationship has been given the full backing from Prince Charles, who is said to have been won over by her beauty and impeccable manners.
According to sources, Harry decided to arrange a bonding session earlier this month in the hopes of winning Charles’ approval and so he could show how serious he is about the blonde dance student.

“Harry knew he needed a nod from his dad so people would take them seriously as a couple,” an insider told Now magazine.
“He was understandably nervous but asked Charles if they could meet over a ‘kitchen supper’ - an informal, simple meal. It was the least pressures setting he could think of.”
But the Royal needn’t have worried as Charles was apparently really taken with Cressie - even inviting her to join him on a ski trip.
The source adds: "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 work commitments in London, but she was thrilled to be asked."
Harry and Cressida were first introduced last summer by Princess Eugenie at The Golden Down Festival. However, their romance was said to have hit a rocky patch after Harry’s embarrassing naked shenanigans in Las Vegas.
According to Now, the two kept in contact while Harry completed his five-month tour in Afghanistan and picked up where they left off soon after.
"It’s early days," adds the source, "but the fact that Harry organised a dinner with Charles so soon is an indicator he’s serious. Charles had a good talk with Cressie and thought she was delightful. That’s definitely a good sign for the future."
