Prince Harry, third in line to the British throne and younger brother to Prince William, has publicly declared that he is currently single. The declaration has scotched rumors of a double Royal-Middleton romance after Prince Harry had been seen out a lot recently with Pippa Middleton.
Prince William’s April wedding to Kate Middleton made headlines around the world. When his younger brother and best man, Harry, appeared to be getting on well with Pippa Middleton, maid of honor, royal watchers on every continent hoped that a romance had sparked over afternoon tea and pub meals.
But the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana recently denied all rumors claiming he has been involved with the Duchess of Cambridge’s sister, Pippa, since he broke off the on-again, off-again relationship with his long-term girlfriend, Chelsy Davy. He says they are just friends and get on well, having a laugh together.
“Pippa? Ha! No, I am not seeing anyone at the moment. I’m 100 percent single,” Prince Harry (26) is reported to have told the British newspaper, “Daily Mail.”
So does the most eligible bachelor in the UK and maybe in the world have an explanation for his single status?
“I’m working a lot at the moment, so dating and watching TV are the last things I have time for.”
Are you convinced? Is Prince Harry just being coy about having a secret girlfriend? And is that covert beau likely to be Princess Catherine’s younger sister, Pippa Middleton?
