Prince Harry Just Received a Marriage Proposal! You’ll Never Guess Who Popped the Question

He may have just broken up with his girlfriend Cressida Bonas, but we doubt Prince Harry will stay single for long. In fact, the royal has already received a marriage proposal — from a Middleton no less.

No, not that Middleton (though we're still holding out for a Harry-Pippa pairing!). During a stop in Chile on his South American tour, a morning show TV host named Bernardita Middleton popped the question to the newly-single prince.

When Harry first arrived in Chile, Middleton was at the airport, watching his car's every move. Little did he know that her biggest gesture of love was yet to come.

Harry was approached by Middleton (who was wearing a tiara to stand out in the crowd) at the Plaza de la Ciudadania in Santiago. When Middleton got close to the royal, she exclaimed, "I'm a Middleton! My name is Middleton, like Princess Kate. I'll be your next wife, Harry", Us Weekly reports.

Harry was a good sport about the whole thing, laughing it off as his appearance was of a more serious nature — laying a wreath in honor of former Chilean leader Bernardo O'Higgins.

In case one needed another reason to be enamored with Harry, he then headed to the Sagrada Familia kindergarten where he had some fun playing with toddlers: no doubt experience he picked up from time spent with his adorable nephew Prince George. "Prince Harry was so caring with the children — he picked them up, he played with them and they loved it," said the school's head-teacher Jimena Perez to Us.

Harry headed to Chile after spending a few days in Brazil, taking in the World Cup and meeting with Brazilians in a few different cities. He leaves Chile this Sunday, but it's clear that he has already made a big impression there.

Move Over, Prince Harry! Cressida Bonas Is Ready to Take Over Hollywood

Well, this is interesting timing. While Prince Harry is embracing bachelor-dom, it looks like very recent ex Cressida Bonas is moving on pretty well, too.

According to E! News, Bonas has been cast in Harvey Weinstein's latest film project, Tulip Fever, an adaptation of Deborah Moggach's best-selling novel, which will be directed by Justin Chadwick.

Set to star alongside supermodel Cara Delevingne (who, by the way, was the most gorgeous bridesmaid at sister Poppy's recent nuptials), Daisy Lowe, Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison, Christoph Waltz and Zach Galifianakis, Cressy has been cast to play a society lady in 17th century Amsterdam.

Though this career move may come as a surprise to some, Bonas actually studied drama at Leeds University before coupling up with the royal. In fact, the 25-year-old just made her theatrical debut at the annual arts and literature Hay Festival in Wales last week.

Clearly, Cressida shirked her potential princess duties for her career aspirations, and it seems to be working.

Meanwhile, Harry is already on the lookout for a new girl. "He was sad, but he's dusted himself off and is now moving on," one of Harry's friends tells Vanity Fair. "He's on the lookout for a new girlfriend already."

Perhaps Harry's new lady will share something in common with his other famous ex, Chelsy Davy. "Chelsy was far more fun than Cressida on a night out and it seems like he's looking for somebody more like Chelsy now," a source tells E! News. "He wants the fun factor to be a big part of their relationship."

We'll have to wait and see what happens, but, either way, we wish the best for the royal and the budding actress!

Prince Harry Cressida Bonas Officially Broken Up

Our dreams of another royal wedding happening in the near future have been officially crushed: Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are never, ever getting back together. According to Vanity Fair, the younger Prince and his on-and-off-again girlfriend of two years are very much kaput.

His friends told the magazine's Royal Watch column that there will be no happy reunions, which means, the red-headed royal is back on the market. "He pretty much said he's out to have fun now that he's single. He wants to meet a girl and he is definitely a bachelor," a source close to the royal says.

This news comes after recent whispers that Harry was trying his best to win Cressida back. One night, he even hosted her at Kensington Palace for a romantic meal — cooked by the Prince himself!

Harry's romantic ways were all for naught, though: Cressida flat out told him she won't be able to live up to being a princess. "He was hopeful of getting back together, but it's not going to happen," the source adds. "He was sad, but he's dusted himself off and is now moving on. He's on the lookout for a new girlfriend already."

The lady who has caught Harry's attention? Amanda Shepherd. Once married to singer Bryan Ferry, Harry and Amanda are old friends and reportedly were "very flirty" at friend Guy Pelly's Memphis Wedding (where, Harry and William had the time of their lives).

If he's unable to woo Amanda, he should consider appearing on FOX's I Want to Marry Harry, season two. They won't need a fake prince, and he will have group of eager girls vying for his heart. A win-win, in our opinions!

Could there be hope for another royal wedding after all? Despite their breakup just three weeks ago, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas might be ready to give their relationship another try.

According to U.K. newspaper the Daily Mail, our favorite fun-loving royal had a secret meeting with Bonas before leaving for an official trip to Rome. The pair has reportedly been in contact since the breakup, but after a few weeks apart, Harry insisted on a face-to-face meeting. Harry invited Bonas to his apartment in Kensington Palace to discuss giving their relationship another try.

Unfortunately for Harry, who initiated the breakup after finding Bonas "too needy," the blonde beauty now appears to hold the power over their future — and as of now, she's reluctant to agree to a reunion.

"It's all very amicable and no one is ruling out that they will get back together, but Cressida hasn't made her mind up and the ball is really in her court," a friend revealed to the Daily Mail.

For Cressida, who previously led a privileged yet quiet life, the constant media frenzy around the pair began to take its toll. According to the Daily Beast, Cressida is "reluctantly giving up on her relationship with Harry as she is not prepared to live her life under the level of scrutiny that existence inside the royal fishbowl entails."

While we had hoped the couple was taking a break à la William and Kate (who famously broke up and reunited in 2007), Cressida's qualms about royal life are a legitimate concern for the couple, and one that can't easily be rectified.

For her part though, Cressida seems to be taking the breakup rather well. She has been spotted out at nightclubs with Princess Eugenie, and Harry is noticing! The blonde beauty donned a cobalt blue halter-neck gown that showed off her stunning figure. "Harry is the jealous type," the Daily Mail reports. "He will have seen the pictures of Cressida and how stunning she looked."

We're holding out hope that these two can make it work!

Prince Harry Parties at Guy Pelly's Wedding

If there's one thing Prince Harry likes to do, it's party. Case in point: The recently single royal was caught twerking (yes, twerking!) at his friend Guy Pelly's wedding to Holiday Inn heiress Lizzy Wilson in Memphis, Tenn. this past weekend.

Yup. Harry made like Miley Cyrus and shook what his mama gave him, reportedly drawing the attention of all the wedding guests (especially a slew of southern belles — Cressida who?) reports U.K. newspaper The Telegraph.

Leading up to the big day, the fun-loving prince lived it up in Miami at Pelly's bachelor party and then at famed Memphis BBQ joint Rendezvous for some grub and guy time.

Though it looks like Prince Harry may have got his partying skills from big brother, the Duke of Cambridge. Reportedly, Prince William took to the stage to belt out "Shout."

Sources say the reception, which was held at the Memphis Hunt and Polo Club was a "wild and crazy night," and that, despite Harry's best booty shaking efforts, Prince William stole the show and was the "life and soul of the party."

"The whole thing was unreal man," says Jimmy Church, lead singer of the wedding band that played the reception, The Jimmy Church Band. "William came up on stage in his coat, and me and him were going back and forth doing 'Shout' and then he did it on his own. I was getting down, he was getting down, it was wild man. He was great, he just got the music."

"They were holding people up in the air and passing them around like they were flying. I've been doing this 50 years and I ain't ever seen anything like this," Church adds. "These guys know how to party."

A few more details on the big day include: There were 200 guests, a six-tier cake topped with a peacock and peahen, and there was a second cake made to look like a fox jumping out of a bush.

Well, one thing's for sure: These royals know how to get down. What we'd give to have been a fly on the wall...

It’s a Royal Affair! Prince William and Prince Harry Attend a Pre-Wedding Party in Memphis

The stateside fun continues for Prince Harry—this time, with Prince William in tow! The princes, who are in Memphis for longtime friend Guy Pelly's wedding to Lizzy Wilson, were spotted at the famous barbecue restaurant Rendezvous last night for a pre-wedding dinner according to E! News.

It sounds like Princes William and Harry enjoyed themselves at the classic American spot and dressed the part, too: William wore jeans and a flannel shirt, while Harry paired his jeans with a simple blue-and-white button-up. The casually-attired royals fit in well at the low-key spot, where the most expensive menu item is less than $20.

Though they walked in through the back entrance (and even had a decoy limo in front to trick people!), it didn't trick royal-watchers. Fans crowded outside the BBQ institution, where Wilson's family reportedly dines often.

The newly-single Harry had a particularly fun evening, but it was much more tame than the bachelor party he attended for Pelly in Miami Beach on Wednesday.

Sources tell E! News that Prince Harry was "at the top of the stairs chatting with people who were drinking beers." The source adds: "The upstairs was packed. Harry was talking to four or five guys. They were really happy and laughing. It seemed like they were having a fun party."

The party-loving royal was reportedly in "a really good mood, and the guys he was around including himself were smiling really big and laughing pretty hard."

Pelly and Wilson are set to wed at the Memphis Hunt & Polo Club Saturday, with Prince Harry and William acting as ushers. We can't wait for those big-day details!

Prince Harry is known as the party prince for a reason. Unlike his brother Prince William, the loyal husband, doting father, and future King of England, Harry regularly lets his ginger hair down when he's not off serving his country (swoon). Remember his infamous Las Vegas trip two years ago, when a gal pal snapped those scandalous photos of him playing pool nude? Exactly. Though he's calmed down (a bit) since that snafu, the newly-single prince is living it up once again, this time in Miami Beach.

Harry is currently in the U.S. for the wedding of longtime friend Guy Pelly and his fiancée Lizzy Wilson, the heiress to the Holiday Inn fortune. The royal-worthy wedding scheduled for this weekend at the Memphis Polo Club in Tennessee. Prince William is also set to attend the nuptials (sans Kate), but he's still in England—perhaps to avoid the debauchery of Pelly's bachelor party. Luckily for Pelly, Prince Harry was on hand to celebrate his stag night in Miami Beach last night. And with the help of keen-eyed sources, we have an idea of how to throw a bachelor party that would get Harry's seal of approval.

1. Pick a Hot Venue
Harry and a co-ed group of 13 friends hit up Hakkasan at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach to kick off the festivities on Wednesday night. The upscale Chinese restaurant is known for its lively late-night scene, which suited the group well—they showed up around 9:45 pm. The group, which dined at two tables in a private section of the restaurant, was "well-dressed, happy and polite," a source told People.

Tip: A private room is smart, even if you're not royalty. No one wants to eat next to a table of rowdy bachelor party attendees, so get a private space you where you can drink, toast and cheer to your heart's content.

2. Eat to Your Heart's Content
Sources told People that Harry and friends got their fill of food before hitting the town. Among the dishes they ordered were duck salad, a dim sum platter, stir-fried Chilean sea bass with sanpei sauce, stir-fried Bahamian lobster with X.O. sauce and charcoal grilled silver cod with champagne and Chinese honey.

Tip: Starting the night at a good restaurant makes a bachelor party fun for slightly younger or more conservative guests. Also, it's never a good idea to drink on an empty stomach!

3. Get to the Dance Floor
After the group closed out the restaurant while enjoying cocktails and coffee, they went to club LIV, also in the Fontainebleau hotel. According to the source, Prince Harry hit the dance floor and "seemed to have a rousing time."

Tip: Picking a club and restaurant in the same hotel was a very bright idea — especially a posh and lively hotel like the Fontainebleau.

Sounds like Wills missed out on a relatively tame, yet definitely fun night out with his brother and friends. Surely the wedding will offer up plenty of fun for these royal brothers.

Just when we thought that Prince William and Kate Middleton's third anniversary would dovetail nicely with a potential engagement between Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas, his girlfriend of nearly two years, it seems that that dream won't become a reality. According to People, Harry recently confided in friends that things were not going well with Bonas.

"He found her too needy and it just wasn't working out," a source close to the prince told People.

Additional sources spoke to the Telegraph, saying, "The relationship has certainly at least paused for a breather. It is virtually impossible to have a successful romance and relationship in the full glare of the world's media."

Unsurprisingly, intense public pressure also caused Wills and Kate's 2007 breakup, which, luckily, only lasted a few months. We wouldn't be surprised if, like his older brother, Harry resumes his relationship after some time apart.

A source told Us Weekly essentially as much. "They're off, but I don't think it's for good," the source said of the prince and Bonas, to whom he was introduced by his cousin, Princess Eugenie. "They hit a rocky patch and this decision is the result of that. Harry is the type to want to take breathers and then try again."

After all, engagement rumors were rampant just last month, when E! News reported that the fun-loving duo were beginning to discuss marriage. "Harry and Cressida have made a point of talking about marriage and what changes they're going to have to make to their life as of late. According to friends of Cressida's, the couple has decided to try and keep their semi-normal lifestyle as long as physically possible." The story seemed to confirm that Harry and his eligible bachelorette (as named by Britain's Tatler magazine last year) would have the next royal wedding.

For now, we'll console ourselves by imagining that Harry will take up with the still-unmarried Pippa Middleton next. Hey, girls can dream, can't they?

Start taking your Union Jack memorabilia from 2011 out of your closets — another Royal Wedding might be happening sooner than you think. As we predicted, Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida Bonas are this close to getting engaged.

A source close to the royal family revealed that wedding bells are in the works for the prince and his socialite lady, reports E! News. "Harry and Cressida have made a point of talking about marriage and what changes they're going to have to make to their life as of late," the source tells E!. "According to friends of Cressida's, the couple has decided to try and keep their semi-normal lifestyle as long as physically possible."

The only thing holding up what would be one of the most-talked about proposals of all time (Seriously, we can't wait for another royal to wed... cough, Pippa, cough!) is the loss of privacy the pair will likely experience if they get engaged.

"They are fully aware once they decide to proceed to marriage things will get a little crazy and the attention on them will increase," the source adds. "So, it's very much a, 'Let's enjoy this while it lasts' before they move forward."

With the spotlight zooming in on Cressida, the Duchess of Cambridge has offered a helping hand to her (possible) future sister-in-law. "Kate's been brilliant with Cressida and has been giving her advice. She likes her very much and has offered her tips on how to keep her normality," a source says. "Kate's been there and done it and, while she knows Cressida won't be as talked about and followed like she was, she needs to get a real slant on what happens."

Though Cressida may have some hesitations, she's reportedly held an initial discussion with the palace regarding post-proposal crowd control. As for Harry? Rumor has it he's plotting his proposal. "Harry has told his crowd that he knows he will wed Cressida, but he wants to ensure their life doesn't become a circus," the same source adds. "He's not half as important as William with regards to the throne and wants his privacy to reflect that."

We're crossing our fingers in hopes that this news is true. We can't handle having our dreams crushed like when Pippa's engagement was deemed a mere rumor. Did you hear that Harry?!

5 Reasons Why We’re Praying for a Pippa Middleton Wedding

Pippa Middleton Royal Wedding

Ever since rumors started swirling around that Pippa Middleton is engaged to boyfriend Nico Jackson the media has been abuzz with excitement, speculation, and contending opinions. According to the Daily Mail, a source close to Pippa claims the high-profile pair is not yet engaged, but clearly that hasn't stopped us from fantasizing about what Pippa's wedding—or her wedding dress—would be like should she decide to walk down the aisle. (After all, it's been two and a half years since Will and Kate tied the knot, and five months since baby George was born—the world is hungry for Middleton milestones!)

Even though she has major shoes to fill, Pippa Middleton's wedding, be it to Nico Jackson or Prince Harry (pretty pretty please?), will be awesome in its own right. Here's why:

1. Her dress is bound to be amazing.

As we predicted when the news first broke, British fashion designers would fight to the proverbial death to design Pippa's wedding dress. First of all, that girl can rock a white gown. Second, she has an incredible style of her own, and since she's not tied as closely to convention as her big sis, she will be able to experiment with her wedding day style. Lastly, Pippa has a killer bod, so whatever fashion choice she'd make, she'd undoubtably look incredible in it.

2. Baby nephew George would be the cutest ring bearer ever.

We know he was just recently christened, but how adorable would the royal baby George be as Pippa's ring bearer? Better yet, he won't need to be carried down the aisle—by the time Pippa were to realistically get married, the little prince will surely be able to walk. We can see the look of pride in Duchess Catherine's eyes already as she watches her first born walk down the aisle to his aunt.

3.Nico Jackson would look killer in a tux.

Let's face it: Pippa's self-made millionaire beau is a stone cold fox. The Deutsche Bank stockbroker, who has been at Pippa's side for 15 months now, has the type of chiseled face and blue eyes that will make your heart hurt. Better yet, he has an A+ build, and we know the man can dress up for a formal affair. As much as we'd love to see Pippa in a white dress, we'd be equally excited to gawk at Nico's utterly handsome self in a perfectly tailored tux. Just sayin'

4. Duchess Catherine would make the most beautiful bridesmaid.

Just as Pippa stole some of the spotlight on Kate's big day, we're sure the Duchess would do the same. After all, we anxiously await any and every one of her public appearances to feast our eyes on her gorgeous fashion choices. There's a reason she's a style icon—Kate is classic and elegant, yet always chic. She even set a new standard for wedding dresses ever since she donned that iconic long sleeve lace Sarah Burton gown at her own wedding. Whether she rocks white or not, we know she'll look stunning.

5. Prince William and Prince Harry will definitely be there.

Ok, ok, we know: We're pushing the Prince Harry plus Pippa thing a little too hard. At the very least, any opportunity to watch the most handsome royal men in action is an opportunity we'd enjoy. Even if it means giving up our dream and having Harry marry his serious girlfriend Cressida Bonas. At this point, we'll take what we can get!
