For those of you who were totally confused over how you felt about Prince Harry and Pippa Middleton dating (we couldn’t decide if it was amazing or totally weird), you can breathe easy because the prince himself laid the rumors to rest this past weekend.
While Will and Kate prepared for their North American tour, the younger prince got to know the continent in another way. Harry was seen chatting up a mystery American blond at the Hard Rock Calling festival in London on Friday.
In case his flirtation wasn’t enough to dispel rumors that he is dating Pippa, Harry point blank denied the two were an item. “Pippa? Ha! No, I am not seeing anyone at the moment. I’m 100 percent single,” he said.
Last week, rumors were flying as to whether the duo were more than friends. The Daily Mail had reported that the couple were dating in secret and had even given each other nicknames. Pippa was said to call Harry Captain, his rank in the Royal Air Force, while Harry reportedly called her Commando, referring to speculation that Pippa went without underwear at the Royal Wedding.
In addition to saying he and Pippa aren’t happening, the prince made it crystal clear that he and longtime on-and-off again girlfriend Chelsy Davy are done. According to Harry, he’s just a little too busy for a relationship. “I’m working a lot at the moment,” the prince explained, “so dating and watching TV are the last things I have time for.”
