Is Prince Harry Dating a Lingerie Model?

The dashing prince is reportedly having "secret trysts" with model Florence Brudenell-Bruce -- and not Pippa Middleton

Pippa who? Two days after denying rumors of a fling with his sister-in-law Pippa Middleton, Prince Harry has been linked to another Englishwoman: lingerie model Florence Brudenell-Bruce.

According to U.K. newspaper The Sun, the 26-year-old prince and the model go way back, but only started dating recently -- after Harry told her that his on-and-off-again relationship with safari heiress Chelsy Davy was now officially off.

"It's very early days, but Harry and Florence are an item," says the paper's Royal source. "She is a lot of fun, blonde and very good-looking. Harry really likes her."

In addition to good looks, Bruce, 25, has a biography that seems tailor-made for a Prince's girlfriend. Not only is she a successful model, but she comes from serious old money, with a wine merchant dad and a French mom. She's also a descendent of royalty: One of her ancestors, the seventh Earl of Cardigan, was a war hero who led the Charge of the Light Brigade. Her hobbies include baking and collecting fine art. Just the kind of girl you'd want to bring home to the palace, no? (She also does commercials -- check out a recent one below!)

 

 

Although The Sun's source says the pair has been having "secret trysts" in Bruce's multimillion-dollar Notting Hill home, Florence and Harry are keeping quiet about whether they have a relationship. The source says that it's still early in the romance (which it would have to be, since Harry and Chelsy Davy's most recent breakup was reportedly this spring).

And no need to worry about Pippa. The It Girl of Britain attended Wimbledon on Wednesday with Alex Loudon -- the boyfriend she reportedly split from weeks ago. She's also been seen attending tennis matchexs with a seriously rich college friend named George Percy. With friends like these, who needs a prince?
