An American tabloid is claiming that Prince Harry allegedly reunited with his former girlfriend Cressida Bonas, and the two have got secretly engaged.

According to a report in OK! magazine, the 30-year-old royal and the 25-year-old daughter of 1960s model Lady Mary Gaye Curzon and Old Harrovian businessman Jeffrey Bonas, who had broken-up last year in April, have reunited.

"They rekindled their relationship in March," a source told the publication. "They were determined to keep it to themselves for as long as possible, so they could have a bit of privacy while they were getting used to each other again."

The couple have "never been happier together. Cressida says he's the love of her life," the insider added.

"Their time apart really brought home to him how perfect she is for him," the source said. "It took him a while to understand it, but he knows now that Cressida is the only one for him."

"The queen is not thrilled about Cressida's career, because princesses have royal duties to attend to that should be priority," the insider said. "She gave her blessing to the engagement because she wants Harry to settle down and have a family."

Prince Harry, who is fourth in line to the throne, had previously dated Chelsy Davy.

Previously, during an interview with Sky News' royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills, Prince Harry, who has been voted among the world's most eligible bachelors, spoke of his desire to have children.

"There comes times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is but I don't think you can force these things, it will happen when it's going to happen," he said.

"Of course I would love to have kids right now but there's a process that one has to go through and tours like this are great fun, hopefully I'm doing all right by myself, it would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure, but you know, time will come and whatever happens, happens," Prince Harry added.
