Rumors are swirling that Prince Harry is close to proposing to his girlfriend Cressida Bonas. “Today” welcomed Keir Simmons from NBC News to its anchor desk on Wednesday (Oct. 9) to talk about the Royal romance.

“Has she tamed Harry? … The gossip is of marriage,” says Simmons’ segment, ending with, “Some in Royal circles whisper she’s already said yes.”

But Simmons adds that he texted a palace official, who would not comment but texted back, “There have been tales before and there will be tales again.”

The segment also interviewed Julie Kim of People magazine, who says that Harry “seems to be in the right frame of mind to settle down. He’s definitely given interviews where he’s talked about really yearning for what his brother William has, with a wife and child.”

The latest issue of People also features a story about Harry and Cressida, with a family source saying the two are “very serious” and that they are “quite perfect for each other.”
