Prince Harry is reportedly romancing Ellie Goulding, they were ‘canoodling’

I used to like Ellie Goulding a lot because she seemed like a “real” person for a pop star. But over time, her voice began plucking my last nerve and I really can’t listen to her music anymore. Plus, I kind of think she messed up her face – her lip injections/lip implants are ridiculous, and I think she had more stuff done too. Anyway, Ellie Goulding might have a new boyfriend: our resident dirty ginger snap, Prince Harry. According to The Sun, it’s ON like Donkey Kong.

PRINCE Harry is secretly courting pop star Ellie Goulding, The Sun can reveal. The pair spent the night canoodling at the recent Audi Polo Challenge, with one onlooker saying it looked like they shared a kiss while under a blanket. The royal and ‘Anything Could Happen’ singer have also been swapping regular flirty texts in recent weeks.

A source close to Harry’s social circle said: “He has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken by him.”

Harry, 31, and Ellie, 29, have been friends for ­several years, growing close after she performed at brother William’s wedding. She was at the closing ceremony for Harry’s Invictus Games in 2014. And they were “all over each other” after the polo at Coworth Park, Berks. It is also the same event Harry got close to Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman at last year.

The royal insider added: “Harry got Ellie’s number a while ago and got in touch. They’d always got on very well through their various meetings after she was the wedding singer at Kate and William’s wedding reception. But things stepped up a gear and they had been in touch in recent weeks and their first really public meeting since was at the polo. It turned into a real party late into the night and there was a complete ban on taking pictures so Harry and the other celebrities there could feel comfortable. Harry was really going for it after the polo – he was drinking and dancing. They were part of a wider group including Tom Hardy. But Harry and Ellie only had eyes for each other all night – they spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets. 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.”

My take is that all of this could be true AND it’s not really that serious. I get the feeling that Harry is a flirt and he likes casual hookups, sometimes with famous women. I think most of us would flirt with a dirty ginger snap, wouldn’t we? And we might make out with him under a blanket. We might text him and have a few nights together. But would we be his girlfriend? Eh. So is Ellie the “girlfriend”? No. I don’t think she is. I think she’s his hookup.

    Come on, Harry, if you’re going to mess around with a pop singer, Joss Stone is a better choice.

    • Jenni says:

      No no no no no! This chick is so basic and does everyone . Ugh harry common

      • Cee says:

        Which one? lol. They’re both basic, but I don’t really see a non basic woman wanting the ring and the position…

      • ladysussex says:

        SO agree with you Jenni! Joss doesn’t even play an instrument or read music. She’s pretty, but that’s it. Utterly basic.

  2. meme says:

    nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo Harry. noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    • sienna says:

      Don’t worry, there is no way he could marry a pop star. I am dying to see who he ends up with though. I think Will only married for loyalty… he knew she would never speak to the press about him and forever turn a blind eye to his dalliances. I wonder if Harry will marry more for love… or hopefully a shared passion for public service.

  3. melodycalder says:

    I like her a lot as a artist but she would be crucified on the public stage if they were together due to her cheating scandals in the past.

  4. Lilacflowers says:

    I’m just here to canoodle. I just love a good canoodling

    • Snazzy says:

      I came here to say that canoodling is the best word ever.

    • INeedANap says:

      Does anyone use canoodling aside from PR people? I literally never hear the word except when it comes to celebrity gossip.

      • mp says:

        “I hear Regina George is dating Aaron Samuels again. The 2 were seen canoodling at Chris Isen’s halloween party… they’ve been inseparable ever since”

      • Lex says:

        It’s the same with ROMP.
        Who literally ever uses that word aside from newspapers or magazines?

      • Lilacflowers says:

        A canoodling romp!

    • Cee says:

      It just reminds me of the word cannoli and now I’m desperately hungry.

    • Sixer says:

      But you’re American. You’re only allowed to fool around. Sorry. It’s the law.

      Mr Sixer generally says, “Fancy a snogging session?” I generally say, “Have you finished the ironing?” He generally says, “Sod the ironing.” I generally say, “Well, if you put it like that…”

      Who says romance is dead?

      I might not bother asking about the ironing next time: I’m still crushed that The Bloke is a royal sucker-up. He is dead to me.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        I will NOT fool around! I will not! Sod fooling around! I will have a proper romp with canoodling and cannolis until I am properly discombobulated. And sod ironing too. Henceforth, the Bloke must do all the ironing.

      • I Choose Me says:

        ‘Sod the ironing’ is going into my file of euphemisms for sex. LMAO.

  5. The Original Mia says:

    Eh…it’s the Sun. Not buying it.

    Joss Stone would be perfect. She’s involved with his charity and has been around his set for years.

    • AmandaPanda says:

      Joss Stone is also certifiable so she would be a very, very bad choice.

      I can’t get on board with Ellie Goulding as an entertainer – I just don’t get it. Incidentally, hiring her as a wedding singer was what confirmed to me that W&K are iredeemably simple – you’re the freaking heir to the throne, you can literally have ANYONE you want sing at your wedding reception and you pick Ellie Goulding to sing an elton John cover? There is no hope for them.

      • Amber says:

        Adele was on The Graham Norton Show the “week” (as in pretaped) of Bill and Bucket’s wedding. Norton asked her why the hell did they hire Goulding when Adele alone was free and going to a barbecue or something that day. Adele said that she had kinda’ heard a rumor about being asked, but… You know, no real answer. It was a head scratcher for me too. I didn’t get the connection. And like of AAAAALL people you could have had. Goulding + “Your Song”*. How fabulous? How original? I think Graham even said to Adele, “I mean, Goulding’s nice and e’rything, but come on!” And her cover is…… Yeah, that’s an Ellie Goulding song alright. If she performed that version of the song *cringe*, yeesh.

        *Love the song and I absolutely adore Elton John’s body of work. But this is another thing 😀 Is that really Will and Kate’s song or was it another Diana crib? It’s just like their engagement story. Is this real? Or did you steal it from someone else? Or is it the best you could come up with and you think it’s what other humans would do?

      • wow says:

        Well it was THEIR wedding, so their musical choice. Just as some of you have or will in the future make those decisions based on what YOU like for YOUR wedding.

  6. abby says:

    He’s dating everyone who has been seen in a 50 mile radius of him these days. Busy guy. Try again when there’s actual photographic proof.

  7. LAK says:

    His hugs slay me. I want a gingersnap hug.

    And thank goodness the beard is gone. No more Captain Haddock.

  8. Sharon Lea says:

    She went to, I thought performed, at a charity in Africa that Harry was visiting after he left the military services last year and I wondered why she flew all that way…wish I could find a link, but instead Google is filled with all the mentions of the above current story.

    Not sure how serious this is either, but they can be in each other’s world. That’s exactly what he needs.

    • StormsMama says:

      I think they look good together and kinda make sense. She has a little bit of Di’s nose maybe? (Don’t yell at me for the comparison)

  9. Lucy says:

    I don’t know if this is true or not, but I must say I really like those pictures of the two of them. They seem very comfortable with each other.

  10. QQ says:

    As if the Firm would allow Ellie and her new face LOL

  11. Mira says:

    Hahaha! I am just her for the meltdowns. Harry is one of the posh darling of this site like Hiddleston. Its so funny when they date women you guys think are inappropriate.

  12. Almondjoy says:

    Am I wrong for finding her unfortunate looking? 😩 I simply don’t like her face.

    • QQ says:

      I also don’t, She looks drowsy, see also: Del Rey, Lana

      • Almondjoy says:

        😩😩 they do have the same weird type of face!

      • Fiorella says:

        Really?! You don’t find those 2 pretty? It seems a lot of people praised on this site are less pretty. I don’t find Lana interesting but she looks nice, what I don’t like: her bolt ons. Ellie seems sweet. She got Ed so riled up he made a pretty good song.

      • Danielle says:

        She got ed so riled up he wrote a good song. LOVE it.

    • Lex says:

      Yep – don’t see any prettiness in her face.

      She and Ed Sheeran seem a good match, not PHG

  13. You don't know me says:

    Yes x1000. Ellie is a perfect match IMO. Joss “fuk for tracks” Stone? Uh no.

  14. Fiorella says:

    I think she’s pretty. At least as pretty as chelsy.. Her thick blonde hair probably has extensions. It’s hard to keep dyed blonde hair so thick..

  15. ClaireB says:

    I was staring at her face in the top picture, trying to figure out who she looks like, and I finally got it: she’s Harmony, from Buffy.

    Which means Harry should stay far, far away!

    And I didn’t remember that W&K got her to sing at their wedding reception. More of their “middle class” taste?

  16. Tina says:

    Well, he’s a step up from Ed Sheeran.

  17. right says:

    Quick question here: are they allowed to marry a foreigner? I don’t know, I’ve got this feeling he might end up with an American or someone from out of the commonwealth countries. But could he?

    (I secretly ship him with Lupita Nyong’o because imagine her being an ACTUAL princess?

    • Lex says:

      Hahahha he will never ever marry an American

    • Fiorella says:

      Hi cousin married A Canadian . Ellie is English though right ? Going from Wikipedia…

    • LAK says:

      Yes. They can marry anyone from any crountry eg Philip is Greek (Danish/German bloodlines if we are being pedantic). Peter married a Canadian. Duke of Gloucester is married to Danish lady. His daughter married a Maori New Zealander. Princess Michael is German,

      • GingerNYC says:

        Things are obviously quite different now, but it used to be rare for the young royals to marry someone who was NOT a foreigner. Fun fact: Prince Charles was the first heir to the throne to marry a British citizen in over 300 years.

  18. katy says:

    oh, for a harry hug…

  19. wow says:

    He must get so tired of this…

  20. raincoaster says:

    I think Ellie is the hookup type as well as Harry, so this might work for both of them, as long as it lasts.

  21. Starlight says:

    At least it’s Ellie on her own and not the whole Family. I have to say I used to like this girl until I saw her on a charity show with a famous BBC UK attractive female DJ and I thought ouch certainly Ellie isn’t part of the sisterhood she came across as a haughty ego ridden pop star ! No eye contact with her host and snub nosed.
