Another girl! Prince Harry 'cosies up to friend'


Britain's Prince Harry is reportedly spending increasing amounts of time with a close friend.

The redheaded royal is thought to be dating charity worker Camilla Thurlow; but that hasn't stopped people whispering about his friendship with Amanda Sheppard. The 31-year-old brunette beauty recently split from singer husband Bryan Ferry, with the couple divorcing earlier this year. "They have a flirtation going back years, and, because she's in his inner circle, Harry knows Amanda can be trusted to be discreet," a source revealed to British magazine Grazia.

‘She'd never become his girlfriend but she's fun and sexy and they have long had chemistry’

"She'd never become his girlfriend but she's fun and sexy and they have long had chemistry. There were previously rumours that Harry may have hooked up with Amanda during a period when he and Chelsy Davy were on a break. Amanda isn't interested in being part of the royal circus, so keeping their friendship low-key is mutually beneficial. At the moment they're both just having fun."

It's thought the pair got close after they both attended Guy Pelly's wedding in May.

The insider further revealed Harry is still happily seeing Camilla as well, trying hard to impress her at any opportunity.

"Harry and Camilla have been keeping their relationship under wraps but they've been seeing one another for two months. Harry's going all-out to impress her and took her on a luxury yacht moored off St. Tropez. They also stayed at a friend's villa and seem to be enjoying getting to know each other better," the insider added.

Harry split with long-term girlfriend Cressida Bonas earlier this year, and friends say he misses being in a relationship.

The British royal turned 30 on September 15, which is said to be one of the reasons he wants to settle down again.

"I think Harry has moments where he misses being coupled up. But he's still reeling from his split with Cressida, so he's trying to make the most of single life," the source added.

It was announced that Harry will be an uncle again, with his older brother Prince William expecting baby number two with wife Catherine next year.
