Is Prince William in love?

London - Britain's dashing Prince William is "on the cusp of a deeper relationship" with a fellow student who strides the catwalk when she is not hitting the books, the Sun newspaper said on Monday.

William, 20, the eldest son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, met Bryony Daniels, also 20, three years ago, and they now see "a fair amount of each other", it quoted Daniels' mother Pauline as saying.

An unidentified "friend" of the students added: "They are now very close and are often seen wandering around together" in Saint Andrews, Scotland, where the two attend university.

"It appears like a friendship on the cusp of a deeper relationship," the friend added.

The Sun illustrated its report with three colour photos of Daniels on the catwalk at a charity fashion show in Saint Andrews.

Daniels' father David Daniels was reported to be a "wealthy landowner" who lives in Sudbury, in Suffolk in the east of England.

In London, a spokesperson for the British royal family denied that William and Daniels were an item. "In no way is she a girlfriend," a spokesperson told the Sun.
