Harry adds romance to his Spanish summer
Although Prince Harry insists he is “100 per cent single,” it seems he’s prepared to shave off a few percentage points for the sake of Florence Brudenell-Bruce.
Harry has spent this week on the Spanish island of Majorca, a long-time vacation spot for his family, flying solo while soaks up the sun and parties with friends (both sexes). His current girlfriend, model Brudenell-Bruce, is back in London while his former squeeze, Chelsy Davy, is getting on with her own life after seven on-again, off-again years with Harry.
The prince will reportedly be hopping over to another Spanish isle, Ibiza, to join Brudenell-Bruce this weekend. "Harry is busy with his Apache helicopter training, but he's always wanted to go to the island so he's hoping to escape for a weekend to spend time with Flee and the gang there,” says a Daily Mail source.
This little get-together comes after Harry had taken the step of introducing the 25-year-old lingerie model to his brother William and royal household staff.
“She has gone down a storm in the royal household,” said one source. “Harry's aides think she is sweet, funny and charming.”
Harry has stood on the martial sidelines this summer, watching first his brother Will and then his cousin Zara Phillips take the trip down the aisle.
As he approaches his 27th birthday next month, is it any wonder that every female he glances sideways at (exhibit A: Pippa Middleton) is being mentally measured for a wedding dress by the media?
It’s not a game Harry particularly wishes to indulge in, seeing as how bachelor life has distinct advantages for a young man intent on good times and his helicopter credentials.
Clearly, Harry appreciates the idea of having a steady female companion. But is Brudenell-Bruce the One?
If she is, wedding bells are still a long ways off.
Said one insider: “He and Flee are enjoying a real summer romance."
