Prince Harry is probably the world’s most eligible bachelor, so it’s no surprise that a rumoured romance between him and pop star Ellie Goulding is causing a serious stir online.

The pair – who have been friends for a number of years – were spotted together at the Audi Polo Challenge in Berkshire and, according to a Sun source, were “all over each other” at the event.

Later, at an exclusive post-polo after party – where no cameras were allowed in order to ensure the comfort of celebrity attendees – the Prince and Ellie were said to have “only had eyes for each other”.

A source told The Sun: “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.”

The source also revealed that the Anything Could Happen singer – who parted ways with on-off boyfriend Dougie Poynter earlier this year – has recently been exchanging flirtatious texts with the Royal.

They said: “[Harry] has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken with him.”

But the source also admitted that if the Prince was to get into a serious relationship with the songstress, the Royal family may not approve because of Ellie’s celebrity status.

The 29-year-old singer performed at the Royal wedding back in 2011 and attended the Invictus Games two years ago – an event which was organised by Harry.

The Prince has been single for the last two years, ever since he split with Burberry model Cressida Bonas.

Could there be a Princess Ellie in the future?  All we can do is hope.

We always fancied ourselves as rather adapt polo players.

Something about all that champagne and Pimm’s and jolly-good fun seems to appeal hugely.

It’s a little Pretty Woman when she wears the amazing polka-dot dress and on-fleek Nineties white gloves; it’s a lot Prince Harry racing around on a noble steed giving us the eye during occasional breaks in play.

And it seems that polo events are not just for royalty (cinematic, aristocratic or otherwise).

Because at the All Ireland Polo Club on the grounds of the Phoenix Park, there are plenty of good-natured equine larks to be had.

Case in point: the glamorous Pink Polo In The Park event, which was successfully held last week.

Glamorous guests, all of whom were supporting Breast Cancer Ireland, comprised of the likes of Michelle Harrison, Norah Casey, Leigh Arnold, Roisin Tierney Crowe, and Gavin Duffy.

Watching the polo from the comfort of a marquee. they were treated to on-pitch action from a talented Irish squad who played against Team Canada… and we’re glad to report that Ireland emerged victorious in a fast-paced show of horsemanship.

The day had began with a pink prosecco reception followed by a sumptuous three-course luncheon prepared and served by the team from the swish Tinakilly House.

TV presenters and stylist entrepreneurs Darren Kennedy and Cathy O’Connor judged the keenly-fought best dressed competition, which was eventually won by Naomi Mulderry and Eoin Likely – both of whom received prizes from Harvey Nichols, Louis Copeland and Ireland’s Blue Book


Lovely lunch with Claire Bear! Thank you #pinkpolointhepark #breastcancerireland

In the second match of the day, Team Breast Cancer Ireland narrowly beat Team Nissan with a score of 6-5 and afterwards CEO of Nissan Ireland, James McCarthy, presented beautiful Galway Crystal trophies to both teams.

During the afternoon, guests furthermore enjoyed a Veuve Clicquot champagne reception and once all the excitement in the park was over, teams and guests were brought to Residence on St Stephen's Green in a cavalcade of Nissan cars for the after-party celebrations.

Certainly, it was a fitting end to the summer polo season and raised much-needed funds for the charity. And in the meantime, roll on the 2016 season, we say! Now, where did we leave our white gloves…
