Looks like the much-speculated romance between Prince Harry and sister-of-the-bride Pippa Middleton is nothing but that — speculation. It turns out that not only is Harry not dating Pippa, the eligible prince is not attached to anyone, including his off-again, on-again girlfriend Chelsy Davy.
“Pippa? Ha! No, I am not seeing anyone at the moment. I'm 100 percent single,” Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper quoted Harry telling guests at the Hard Rock Calling concert in London on Friday. “I'm working a lot at the moment, so dating and watching TV are the last things I have time for.”
The third-in-line to the throne is currently training to become a British Army Air Corps helicopter pilot. But that doesn’t mean that he won't take a summer vacation.
“I am hoping to get a holiday in August,” he was quoted as saying. “I haven't been to South Africa in a long time, so maybe I'll go there.”
It was also a busy weekend for Harry’s brother and sister in-law, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Catherine. The newlyweds paid tribute to Britain’s servicemen and women, handing out medals to members of the Irish Guard who served in Afghanistan.
It was the Duchess’s first official military role since becoming a royal and as usual it was her wardrobe that drew the most attention. She wore a double-breasted navy blue Alexander McQueen coat dress with gold buttons and epaulets, a matching fascinator and gold shamrock pin.
Widely praised, the dress is one we may get to see again: Kate has made headlines for her willingness to “recycle” her clothing. In the official photo for the couple’s upcoming trip to Canada, Kate wore a navy blue Amanda Wakeley suit she put on again several weeks before her wedding on a visit to Lancashire.
On Monday, tennis took a backseat to Kate when the couple made an appearance in the royal box at Wimbledon. Braving the 89 degree heat, she wore a white pleated sleeveless dress by designer Alice Temperley.
The young royals are scheduled to leave on a long-planned tour of Canada and California on Thursday. It will be Kate’s first trip to the States, and while in California, the pair will attend a polo match as well as a black-tie dinner promoting British film.
