Prince Harry just a 'friend,' Mollie King insists
Maybe Prince Harry really is just a 'big brother' type.
He'd have to be, for the number of instances when rumoured loves insist they are 'just friends' with the eligible royal.
Since the rumours of a spring fling between the two began several weeks ago, King has played it coy, steering clear of the subject in interviews as she sells records.
She ended that on Tuesday on her Twitter account as she chatted with fans:
"Guys I'm getting lots of tweets about Prince Harry but as i said last wk,i'm not dating him & we're not in a relationship. We're just friends."
The 24-year-old singer and the 27-year-old prince met at a polo match in 2010 and have been spotted together at some London bars. While that doesn't necessarily translate into a relationship, any female within Harry's sightlines is a tabloid candidate.
Several sources insist Harry and King are a couple.
"They want to carry on seeing each other but will only do so inside the private homes of very few close friends they trust," one friend was quoted in the Daily Mail.
"Harry saw how tough it was for his brother William and Kate when they first started seeing each other. He knows the enormous interest in them drove them apart at one point and doesn't want that to happen to him and Mollie."
