Prince Harry and The Saturdays star Mollie King are dating – but the royal is terrified a media frenzy could ruin their relationship.
Both have agreed to keep their relationship secret and will only meet up behind closed doors for secret dates.
Last night the pair were said to be together at a mutual friends house in London.
Secret dates: Mollie King and Prince Harry have agreed to keep their liaison a secret to give their relationship a chance out of the media frenzy
A source told The Daily Star Sunday: 'Harry saw how tough it was for his brother William and Kate when they first started seeing each other.
'He knows the enormous in them drove them apart at one point and doesn't want that to happen to him and Mollie.
'They want to carry on seeing each other but will only do so inside the private homes of very few close friends they trust.'
Under wraps: The prince and Mollie are said to have met in 2010
But it seems although the pair have vowed to keep their relationship under wraps with no public dates, they have been seen out together three times.
Harry, 27, and Mollie, 24, were rumoured to have been set up by the royal's cousin Zara Phillips.
It is thought Zara, who knows Mollie's bandmate Una Healey, knew the pair would hit it off.
30-year-old royal knows Una through her husband Mike Tindall who is
friendly with the singer's rugby playing fiance Ben Foden.
A source told Katie Nicholl in the
Mail On Sunday last week: 'They’re having a lovely time together but she
won’t say anything publicly because she knows that will mean the end of
'She loves the publicity so she is happy to drop a few hints and keep people guessing.'
The couple are said to have first met at a polo event in Surrey in July 2010 but as Mollie was in a relationship it is thought her and Harry got together some time after their split.
And Mollie is certainly already feeling the 'Harry effect.'
It seems Aspinal of London and Prince Harry share the same taste in women.
