It’s no secret that Prince Harry likes to partake in a bit of—for lack of a better word—canoodling, and his latest partner in such activities seems to be none other than pop starlet Ellie Goulding, according to The Sun. The pair was reported to be “all over each other” at the Audi Polo Challenge in Coworth Park, Berkshire (or as the Brits call it, “Berks”), snuggling and kissing under a blanket together after the match. “He has told friends how much he likes Ellie, and she is clearly taken by him,” the source tells the publication.
Goulding and the prince go way back. Among other connections, she played at his brother’s wedding, and she attended Harry’s Invictus Games for wounded soldiers in 2014, where the two were photographed sharing a rather touchy-feely hug. As for this latest sporting event, “It turned into a real party late into the night,” the insider told The Sun. “Harry was really going for it after the polo—he was drinking and dancing.… But Harry and Ellie only had eyes for each other all night—they spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets.”
Though they didn’t leave together—we are talking about the royals, after all—they were spotted in a lip-lock before they both left the party. “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 said.
Goulding’s most recent relationship, with McFly bassist Dougie Poynter, ended in February after two years, and Prince Harry and Cressida Bonas ended their two-year relationship in 2014, so they are both very single. Perhaps we’ll see them snogging at some other outdoor activity soon—we can only hope.
