Prince Harry was like every member of Big Time Rush wrapped up in one adorable and royal package this weekend when he managed to charm women, men, and babies on his trip to Australia. Will's insanely likeable brother was met by mobs of women everywhere he went after flying Down Under to take part in the International Fleet Review. Girls screamed for him, men held up their babies so Harry could touch their cheeks, and one woman "accidentally" dropped her straw hat so he could pick it up and chat for awhile with her pretty 22-year-old daughter -- best mom ever. Even the prime minister's gorgeous daughters, Bridget and Frances, were reportedly so smitten by the redhead that 22-year-old Bridget immediately posted a photo of them on her Instagram. I mean, guys, this is a girl who probably has access to Harry Styles and Harry Lloyd -- the pick of the litter!

But the Prince's friends say his mind -- and heart -- are elsewhere. And that's not all they're revealing. 

Harry's buddies have been very chatty with reporters lately, telling them that the 29-year-old's girlfriend Cressida Bonas has overcome her fears of marrying into the royal family and will very likely marry the prince next year! How is that even enough time to book a decent hall? Oh, right.

Harry's friends also reveal this bit of precious information: apparently, all the Prince can talk about is marriage and children. Perhaps he's inspired by what seems like Kate and Will's healthy and fun union and their cute tot? Harry reportedly loves the fact that Cressida is so free-spirited and comes from a Bohemian background. Although he's been pressuring her to accept a proposal for some time now -- at first the 24-year-old model felt too young to settle down -- if this juicy gossip is to be believed, she's ready! 

I've always loved Harry. He's the closest thing the Royal Family will ever get to a normal bloke. And, despite all the talk about Kate not being Cressida's biggest fan because Will had a thing for her friend Isabella Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe, I sense the Duchess is far more secure in herself and her relationship to care too much about that past silliness. I'd love to see the Royal Family get a dose of Beatnik and I think Cressida would shake things up just enough to make their lives more interesting. 

What do you think about a Prince Harry/Cressida Bonas wedding?
