Sounds like these two have been getting pretty close...

Prince Harry has been single for quite some time – but has he found love again with none other than Ellie Goulding?

It’s been reported that Harry, 31, is ‘secretly courting’ singer Ellie, 29, after they were apparently spotted getting very cosy at the Audi Polo Challenge in Berkshire a couple of weeks ago.

Prince Harry ‘wants to be on Take Me Out’!

The pair – who have been friends for several years – even appeared to share a kiss according to an onlooker when they hung out with pals following the event.

‘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,’ a source says.

‘Harry was really going for it after the polo – he was drinking and dancing. They were part of a wider group including Tom Hardy.

‘But Harry and Ellie only had eyes for each other all night – they spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets.

‘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.’

Ooh! It certainly sounds like Harry is quite taken with Ms Goulding, who famously performed at Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding in 2011.

‘Harry was overheard on the way out telling some friends how much he liked her,’ the insider claims.

‘But 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.’

Harry and Ellie had reportedly been exchanging messages in the run-up to this event, having known each other for quite some time.

‘Harry got Ellie’s number a while ago and got in touch,’ the source tells The Sun.

‘They’d always got on very well through their various meetings after she was the wedding singer at Kate and William’s wedding reception.

‘But things stepped up a gear and they had been in touch in recent weeks and their first really public meeting since was at the polo.’

As well as supporting the royals at various events – including a performance at the closing ceremony of Harry’s Invictus Games in 2014 – Ellie was even said to have been asked to sing at the Prince’s 30th birthday do.

Neither party has spoken about these latest rumours but both are used to having their love lives talked about.

Harry dated Chelsy Davy on and off for six years before having a two-year relationship with Cressida Bonas.

Meanwhile Ellie split from McFly’s Dougie Poynter earlier this year and previously had relationships with stars including DJ Greg James and actor Jeremy Irvine.

Personally we think Harry and Ellie would make a very cute couple!
