Prince Harry is reportedly dating Doctor Who star Jenna Coleman, and there are signs indicating that the fun-loving royal may finally be ready to settle down.
The 30-year-old royal was spotted with the 29-year-old actress last month, sparking rumors of a romance. Prince Harry and Jenna Coleman were spotted together at an exclusive party in London after a polo match. The two were deep in conversation, with Harry placing his hand on Jenna’s knee as they spoke.
Sources said they looked very flirty.
“From their body language it looked like they were really enjoying each other’s company,” a witness told Britain’s Sun newspaper.
The meeting seems to have sparked a romance, sources close to Prince Harry say.
“Harry was happy she could make it,” the source said. “They were laughing and seemed into each other.”
The romance seems to kill the rumors that Harry was interested in getting back with former flame Cressida Bonas. In the past few weeks, reports had circulated that Harry was trying to win Cressida back.
“Harry’s been trying to get Cressy back for a while,” a source told OK! Magazine. “He’s been calling and sending flowers, and she finally gave in.”
There were even rumors that they had secretly gotten back together.
“They rekindled their relationship in March,” a source told OK! Magazine. “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.”
But now that Prince Harry is dating Jenna Coleman, he may be looking to settle down. Harry had told Sky News royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills that he was ready to put his dating days behind him and think about starting a family.
“There come 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,” Prince Harry said.
But it may take Harry and Jenna a while to get any traction in their relationship, sources add.
“They’ll never be anything serious because of their schedules,” a source told Us Weekly. “He’s off to South Africa and she’s going to be filming Doctor Who in the States. But, for now, they’re just enjoying each other’s company.”
And there is still another hurdle to their relationship — going public. So far, neither Prince Harry nor Jenna Coleman has confirmed the relationship publicly.
