While we patiently wait for news of another royal engagement in the shape of Prince Harry and girlfriend Cressida Bonas, it has emerged Harry's friends do not believe Cressida is royal material.

The reason? Apparently the 24-year-old former dancer is "too carefree" for life in Britain's most famous family.

A source close to Prince Harry confided in E! News: "There is a growing feeling among a small section of them that Cressida isn't the perfect choice for him.

"I don't think it's because there is anything wrong with the relationship or they don't like her, but there is concern that she is too much of a free spirit to be happy in the royal family long-term.

They continued: "They worry that she wouldn't be able to fully adapt to that lifestyle. They think she's too carefree and would find it difficult to live by the protocol that comes with the job, which of course it is. It might be too much of a constraint for her. And that could cause problems for everyone."

We can't help but completely disagree! Cressida is discreet, doesn't seek the limelight and seems to have made Prince Harry incredibly content. When was the last time he was involved in a Las Vegas-style situation? Exactly.

Plus, she's undeniably Harry's type - if past girlfriends are anything to go by - and well, she's damn cool. Let's put it this way - did you ever think you'd see a royal at Glastonbury pre-Cressida? Us neither. This girl's got to stay.
