Prince Harry reportedly has a girlfriend, and it’s none other than British pop star Ellie Goulding, the Sun wrote in an exclusive report Tuesday. While some people hoped Harry might have fallen for Pippa Middleton, Prince William’s brother is supposedly getting cozy with the “Love Me Like You Do” singer.
The couple shared a secret kiss under a blanket at Audi Polo Challenge May 29. “They spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets,” an insider told the Sun. “They were seen having a kiss before Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day. Ellie left about five minutes later.”
They were “all over each other,” an insider said. “Harry got Ellie’s number a while ago and got in touch.” Their first time seen in public together was at the polo match.
But it’s unlikely any photos of the pair being affectionate will surface since pictures were forbidden. “It turned into a real party late into the night, and there was a complete ban on taking pictures, so Harry and the other celebrities there could feel comfortable,” the source said.
Harry, 31, is smitten with the singer. “He has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken by him,” the insider said.
Harry and Goulding, 29, became friends after she performed at Prince William’s wedding to Kate Middleton. But the singer might not be welcomed into the royal family. “There’s already a lot of talk amongst friends that the palace wouldn’t allow her as a serious girlfriend because of her celebrity background,” the source said.
Goulding has a list of celebrity ex-boyfriends, which includes: DJ Skrillex, MacBusted frontman Dougie Poynter, One Direction Star Niall Horan, singer Ed Sheeran, singer Luke Friend and Taylor Swift’s latest ex-boyfriend, DJ Calvin Harris.
