Prince Harry has reportedly been spotted "canoodling" with singer Ellie Goulding.

The 31-year-old royal, who recently spoke of his desire to get settle down and start a family, was seen looking cosy with the British singer at the Audi Polo Challenge. One onlooker claimed it looked as if they kissed underneath a blanket.

Goulding is no stranger to mingling in the inner royal circle - she performed at Kate Middleton and Prince William's 2011 wedding and regularly sings for the family at the request of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

She also performed at the Harry's inaugural Invictus Games in 2014.

"He has told friends how much he likes Ellie and she is clearly taken by him," a source told The Sun.

"They were seen having a kiss before Harry had to go because he was playing polo the next day. Ellie left about five minutes later."

"They spent a lot of time sitting together under blankets," they said.

Ellie recently split with boyfriend of two years Dougie Poynter.

Last year at the same event, he was linked to Dr Who actress Jenna Coleman, who he reportedly swapped numbers with.

Harry recently spoke out about his frustrations at being romantically linked to every woman he speaks to, saying he has "massive paranoia" about women approaching him.

"If or when I do find a girlfriend," he said. "I will do my utmost... to ensure that me and her can get to the point where we're actually comfortable with each other before the massive invasion that is inevitably going to happen into her privacy."

"The other concern is that even if I talk to a girl, that person is then suddenly my wife, and people go knocking on her door."

"To be fair, I haven’t had that many opportunities to get out there and meet people.

"At the moment, my focus is very much on work. But if someone slips into my life then that’s absolutely fantastic."
