After his split with girlfriend Chelsy Davy, speculation is rife that Prince Harry is getting close to Australian pop singer Natalie Imbruglia, who has described him as”sexy and very charming”.
The 24-year-old prince and Imbruglia are reported to be in frequent text contact after the two were seen flirting at the singer’s 34th birthday bash in London.
The pair are said to be so close he sneaked into her recent birthday party without telling anyone in a surgeon’s outfit and spent the night drinking and chatting with Imbruglia.
Mail on Sunday Report claims the couple were introduced by Sam Branson, the 23-year-old son of multi-millionaire Sir Richard who owns the Kensington Roof Gardens, one of Prince Harry’s favorite haunts. Natalie Imbruglia invited them to the Roof Gardens for her birthday party and she was delighted when Harry turned up. They had a great catch-up. Natalie thought Harry’s outfit was hilarious and they spent ages giggling together.
‘Natalie’s single at the moment. She’s a totally gorgeous girl and very down to earth and lots of fun. It seems that Harry has joined her very long list of admirers. Natalie wasn’t exactly avoiding his attentions. Harry was being very charming, which probably made her feel very fabulous and young.
‘At one point she was in the ladies’ loos with a girlfriend fixing her make-up. She said she thought Harry was sexy and very charming and kept asking her friend if she looked all right and if her bottom looked big, which of course it didn’t. She is stunning.’
The guest added: ‘It was as if she wanted to impress Harry and she was clearly chuffed to bits that he was there and had made such an effort to speak to her. She kept laughing about the fact that she had a Prince and a Princess at her party.’
A close friend of Natalie said yesterday: ‘She gets on very well with Harry but I don’t think he’s her type. She tends to go for rock musicians, not public schoolboys.’
Prince Harry is still single following his split from Chelsy Davy last month. Chelsy called off their five-year relationship because of Harry’s Army commitments.
The 23-year-old Zimbabwean, who is studying a postgraduate law degree at Leeds University, announced the news on her page on the Facebook social networking website by changing her status to single, which is said to have upset Harry. The couple have been in touch since the split but friends say Chelsy is ‘playing hard to get’.
One friend said: ‘Harry wanted to see Chelsy on Valentine’s Day but she is in no hurry to get back together.’
