IBIZA, Spain   -   Daily Mail   -  Whilethe Duke and Duchess of Cambridge prepare for a life of settled parenthood, Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas are planning to take their first holiday together - on the party island of Ibiza.

Both Harry and Cressida have been working hard in recent months and, other than a weekend at Glastonbury, they have so far had little time to relax this summer.

Cressida took her final exam at the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance on June 26 and celebrated with her half-sister Isabella Calthorpe. But she still had to keep her head down until her final show on July 1.

Harry had been preparing for his qualification as an Apache gunship commander, which gives him overall control of the two-man attack helicopter during missions. Just over a week ago, he passed ‘with flying colours’, according to his commanding officer, following three years of training.

The 28-year-old also completed a four-month tour of Afghanistan earlier this year as a co-pilot gunner, and friends say Harry and Cressida now feel they deserve a break.

‘They want to go on holiday together somewhere in Europe,’ says a friend. ‘Obviously Ibiza is the frontrunner. Harry has never been there. His friends go to the island every year but he always misses out.’

The Prince, who has been to Las Vegas twice in the past year, is known for his love of partying, as is Cressida, but the idea is also to relax together. ‘They want to go and chill somewhere - Ibiza is good for that, too,’ adds the friend.

Another source says: ‘Although everyone thinks they went skiing together in Verbier in February, they were actually there on separate invitations from older family members. This summer they want to have a proper holiday together with friends.’ MO
