Prince Harry has reportedly commenced "royal marriage protocols".

The 29-year-old British royal is in a relationship with dancer Cressida Bonas. And according to reports, he may have already proposed to the aristocratic socialite.

"But first he needs to go through certain royal protocols, such as asking his grandmother's permission," an insider explained to America's OK! magazine of the marital approval procedure.

"Palace sources say there's not been a formal request made to her majesty yet, but the fact we're hearing about it means it's likely he's already popped the question and they're waiting until all the boxes are ticked before formally announcing it."

Apparently the entire royal family fully supports a union between Prince Harry and Bonas.

Even matriarch Queen Elizabeth II is said to be rooting for a wedding to take place.

"It's no secret the queen would dearly love to see her roguish grandson settle down, and she thinks Cressy is his ideal match," the source detailed.

"She likes that [Cressy] comes from a good family, plus she has a twinkle in her eye that reminds [the queen] of her sister, the late Princess Margaret."

Harry's brother Prince William welcomed son George with his wife Catherine Middleton seven months ago.

It's claimed becoming an uncle has opened his eyes to the kind of future he could potentially share with Cressida.

"Seeing how happy his brother is now and how amazing his nephew is, Harry wants all that for himself," the insider said.
