London, April 6 : Prince Harry has sparked speculation that he is willing to marry girlfriend Chelsy Davy, by having an "intense" discussion with the latter's parents.
The young British royal was spotted having a heart-to-heart with multi-millionaire Charles Davy and his wife Beverley over breakfast in a five-star Cape Town hotel.
And friends of the couple in South Africa are convinced that Harry was asking for Chelsy's hand in marriage.
"It was a pretty intense conversation. He obviously had a serious issue to discuss with them," the Daily Star quoted a friend, as saying.
"Harry is a traditional guy. He'd want to do things properly and ask for her father's permission," the friend added.
The 23-year-old prince is now back from his trip to South Africa to visit 22-year-old Chelsy's family, whom he joined after a blissful break with Chelsy spent drifting down a river in Botswana.
The family friends believe that Charles and Beverley would want to make sure that Harry is serious about having a long term future with their daughter.
"He's a lovely young man but he sometimes fails to follow things through. Chelsy's parents know he loves her but want to make sure that he'll stick with her," a family friend said.
