Prince Harry's girlfriend has spent the weekend at the Queen's Sandringham estate - showing the closeness of the couple.
Cressida Bonas, 24, enjoyed Saturday and Sunday at the private Norfolk home but the Queen was not present.
It is not the first time Miss Bonas has been invited to Sandringham but news of the latest invite has sparked speculation about whether the couple will get engaged.
The weekend stay might have involved some shooting, which is a favourite pastime of the royals.
But the visit is not as significant as it might have been as the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh were not at home.
Harry, 29, and Miss Bonas have been seen dating in recent weeks with the couple enjoying a James Blunt concert and a night in London's West End watching the musical The Book Of Mormon.
The prince has been with his girlfriend for more than a year following a long- term romance with his previous partner Chelsy Davy.
They were reportedly introduced by Harry's cousin Princess Eugenie and soon afterwards became close.
Harry and his girlfriend were pictured together in February on a winter break at the Swiss ski resort of Verbier.
There was also speculation that Miss Bonas was invited to the recent christening of Prince George but she did not attend.
Kensington Palace declined to comment.
