Prince Harry was reportedly caught flirting with Doctor Who actress Jenna Coleman at an A-list polo event, and it has since been revealed that she recently split from her boyfriend since 2011, Game Of Thrones’ Richard Madden.
According to the Sun, via the Daily Mail, 30-year-old Prince Harry was spotted sharing a conversation with 29-year-old Coleman, and reports have stated that the pair were clearly “really enjoying each other’s company.”
An eye witness to the duo’s antics told the aforementioned publication that they were “sitting very close, laughing lots and touching each other.” The insider then added that the closeness of the pair would probably have left Madden rather apoplectic.
“I had no idea she had a boyfriend until afterwards,” they continued. “But I don’t think he would have been very happy to see this.” However, the Mirror have since reported that Coleman and Madden split up several months ago.
The source noted that Harry went to great lengths to make sure that he could have some alone time with Coleman. “Harry sneaked outside with Jenna,” they added, via the Mirror. “He took her by the hand and led her away from the crowd in the sponsor’s tent. They sat alone and talked as things were winding us inside the party. It was a very flirty, tactile encounter. She was leaning in to him and he had his hand on her knee.”
The pair took part in this exchange at the lavish Audi Polo Challenge at Coworth Park in Ascot on Saturday last weekend. Coleman wasn’t the only actor that Prince Harry was spotted socializing with at the event. Pictures have also emerged of the Royal member talking with Avengers: Age Of Ultron’s Chris Hemsworth too. Other celebrities at the celebration included Jeremy Irvine, Hannah Arterton, Jack O’Connell, and Samuel L. Jackson.
Prince Harry has been single for over a year ever since he and Cressida Bonas, a burgeoning actress, split up. But Harry has recently revealed that rather than enjoying being single he is currently looking to find the perfect partner as he looks to “settle down and have kids.”
Coleman, who was born in Blackpool, England, has been starring in Doctor Who as Clara Oswald since 2012, where she has acted opposite Matt Smith and Peter Capaldi’s incarnations of the hero.
