The ‘Touch My Body’ singer – who is divorced from record executive Tommy Mottola – much prefers the “suaveness” of UK men and thinks the prince epitomises the typical English gent.

She said: “I adore British men – and I rather fancy Prince Charles. He is suave, educated and is a great role model.”

Mariah is not the first celebrity to admit to having a royal crush.

Paris Hilton has previously confessed to having her eye on Charles eldest son Prince William.

The blonde socialite said: “I think Prince William is hot. I’ve seen him at polo matches, but I’m too shy to talk to him.”

Singer Natasha Bedingfield also admitted she was “smitten” with the handsome prince – who is in a longtern relationship with brunette beauty Kate Middleton – after they danced together backstage at the Concert for Diana last summer.

She said: “It was really nice. I danced with him. He actually asked me to dance. I’m smitten. I’m terrible, because I’ve already got a boyfriend.”

William and his brother Prince Harry organised the Concert for Diana to mark the 10th anniversary of their mother’s death.
