Prince Harry has a new girlfriend. The handsome and fun-loving younger brother of recently married Prince William is apparently off the market. So while that makes us just a little jealous, at least he’s happy. And it means we have a new potential princess to obsess over!
The bad news? It’s not Pippa Middleton. But then that might have been a bit weird anyway.
No. Prince Harry’s new arm candy is Jenson Button’s gorgeous ex-girlfriend, swimwear model Florence Brudenell-Bruce. The prince and Florence have been friends for years. However, things have moved on since the royal wedding and he has apparently been seen regularly at her £2.5m Notting Hill home.
It could be a good match. Royals are famous for marrying among themselves, and Harry and Florence, nicknamed Flee, are distantly related. They are eighth cousins, descendants of the seventh Earl of Cardigan, who led the Charge of the Light Brigade.
When the royal romance hit the headlines, Flee as she is known to friends, told reporters: “There’s not much to say.”
Before dating Prince Harry, Florence (25), dated Formula One driver Jenson Button for two years. They split in 2008.
Florence is a lingerie and swimwear model who was lucky enough to be discovered coming out of Topshop when she was 15. However, Flee only began modelling after she completed school. She has an art history degree from Bristol University and has modelled for big brands including John Lewis, Knickerbox and Liz Hurley’s bikini range. She was also the face and hair of John Frieda’s Frizz-Ease range.
Florence was also of the beauties dancing in her panties in Ironik’s video for “Tiny Dancer,” and in 2009 she played the love interest in a Bollywood movie Love Aaj Kal. She would like to do more acting. She has an American agent and her big ambition is to star opposite Russell Crowe.
So, is Flee a little too fleighty for a royal bride? Would she flea the expectations and restrictions placed upon her? Or has Prince Harry found true love as his brother Prince William appears to have done with Kate Middleton?
