The 27-year-old royal – who has previously had an on/off relationship with Chelsy Davy and been linked to Saturdays singer Mollie King – is pursuing a date with the Three Musketeers star but she is ”wary” about being thrust into the spotlight.

A source told The Sun: ”Harry is a huge fan of Gabriella – and she likes Harry a lot. But she is very wary of becoming another Kate Middleton.

”She is put off by the huge glare of the spotlight that surrounds everything Kate does.”

Harry has become one of the most eligible young men in the UK since his brother Prince William married, and recently was believed to have been seen flirting with Cheryl Cole after she had performed for his grandmother Queen Elizabeth at her Diamond Jubilee concert.

A source said: ”They were definitely flirting and Cheryl said afterwards she’d love a dinner date with Harry.”

Cheryl – who has admitted in the past to having a crush on the prince – reportedly made the first move, approaching Harry for a chat.

The insider added: ”Cheryl wasted no time sidling up to Harry in the swanky Long Gallery.

“She spotted Harry and made a beeline for him. He was standing with a couple of friends and his brother Prince William and his wife Duchess Catherine weren’t far away.

“Cheryl had arrived with her manager, who looked like he was encouraging her to go over so she did.”
