It’s thought the new couple have known each other ‘for years,’ but hooked up last month, when Harry’s on-off relationship with Chelsy Davy finally came to an end.

Rumour has it Harry and 25-year-old Florence – who attended the famous Stowe school in Buckinhamshire – have been spied on several dates, and even hung out at her posh pad in Notting Hill.

It’s very early days but Harry and Florence are an item,’ one royal insider told the Sun. ‘She is a lot of fun, blonde and very good-looking. Harry really likes her.’

A descendent of the seventh Earl of Cardigan, it doesn’t come as a surprise posh Florence and Harry are distantly related.

It’s thought Florence’s connection to the Royals is through Sir Edward Walpole, son of Prime Minister Robert Walpole after his daughter married in to the royal family in 1784.

Florence’s father is a well-known art collector and her mother and brother both artists, while Prince Harry is third in line to the throne.
