According to reports, speculation 'Burn' singer Ellie could be dating Prince Harry surfaced after the pair were 'spotted getting close at a polo match' back in May. It's claimed they were seen 'kissing under a blanket' at a party that followed Coworth Park's Audi Polo Challenge.

A source has said, according to Daily Express: "[Harry] has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken by him."

They claimed Royal aides are 'reluctant' to discuss the rumours. Reveal has contacted a rep for Ellie.

Dating rumours aside, Ellie and Prince Harry have been friends for some quite time. The pair first met after Ellie performed at the wedding of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, back in 2011.

Ellie later performed at the Invictus Games in 2014 - a sporting event hosted by Harry for wounded, injured and sick service men and women.

She and Harry stopped for a photograph together, with Ellie posting the picture to her Instagram and congratulating him on his efforts. She said: "Congratulations to all who made the Invictus Games a huge success!"

Ellie is currently single after splitting from ex-boyfriend Dougie Poynter back in February.

It was their second split, as the pair had reunited only a month before, following a brief break last year. It's thought distance put strain on the pair's relationship, with a source telling The Mirror at the time: "They are finding it hard to spend time together as Ellie's music career takes her all over the world and she is pulled in different directions.

"Dougie is trying to make it in America as an actor and they are drifting apart."

Following their split, Ellie has reassured fans she and Dougie are still the "best of friends", she gushed: "He's one of the most special people in the world and I'm so happy for him he's doing so well in LA... he's still one of my best friends and I know he feels the same."
