Harry beats William in gay vote

Prince Harry has triumphed over his brother Prince William in a poll of single gay men.

More than a third of voters said they would rather date 24-year-old Harry than his older brother in the Prince Charming poll conducted by dating website gay-PARSHIP.

Adrian Gillan, spokesman for gay-PARSHIP, said: “This fraught romantic vote suggests divided royal loyalties. Indeed, many gay male singles are so torn they say they would need to date both our young princes, whose female love interests prove only slightly less of a queer pull.

“Being part of an inclusive, modern monarchy, William and Harry will be delighted that they and their close circle can arouse such strong emotions from Britain’s homosexual subjects.”

One in 10 people revealed they would be happy to date both royals at once, while a third of those polled admitted they would not be interested in romancing either of the princes.

Although Harry proved more popular than the future king with gay men, William’s girlfriend Kate Middleton was named the most lusted-after royal date among lesbians.

Kate – who has been dating 26-year-old William since they met at university in 2001 – attracted 23 per cent of the vote, while Harry’s girlfriend Chelsy Davy received 18 per cent.

More than half of single lesbians polled confessed they weren’t attracted to either 26-year-old brunette Kate or blonde Chelsy, 23.
