The 23-year-old prince – who has been inseparable from Chelsy since returning from frontline action in Afghanistan earlier this month – has been joking to friends about marrying the Zimbabwe-born beauty.

A source told the News of the World newspaper: “He has been calling Chelsy all sorts of nicknames like ‘Wifey’ and she has been falling about in hysterics. She thinks he is hilarious, which is part of why she fell for him in the first place. She has been playing along, addressing him as ‘Hubby’.

Harry has been joking around saying he wants six children and home in the country.”

Meanwhile, Harry – who has taken Chelsy on a romantic African safari in Botswana – is set to spend Easter with Chelsy and her parents in South Africa.

The couple are planning to fly to Cape Town on Thursday (20.03.08) to visit William and Beverly at their UKP800,000 holiday home. A source told the Sunday Mirror: “Harry and Chelsy are closer than they have ever been. The trip to Botswana made them realise how much they want to be together.

“Chelsy’s parents think the world of Harry and are looking forward to spending the Easter holidays with him.”

Harry is set to return to the UK in time to see his fellow Blues and Royals soldiers fly home from Afghanistan on April 15. The prince spent 10 weeks secretly fighting the Taliban in the dangerous Helmand Province before the news blackout was broken and he was forced to return home.
